In-state rivalries are no joke, especially for the state of Pennsylvania. The state is destined for an intense rivalry when it has a city like Pittsburgh, which has seen a good amount of success from its sports teams over the past couple decades, and one of the top 10 biggest cities in the country, like Philadelphia.

Cruel… hilariously cruel. Then again, with the year Philly is having, no need to show mercy.
Now the Pens can move-on to destroy the hopes and dreams of every Washington hockey fan… for the third year in a row.
