Playoff Roundelay: Kings East and Flyers West both up 3-0

And neither series is over, of course, but the dream of a Kings-Flyers cup final, as ridiculously premature that is even to speak out loud, lives to fight another day. I’ll say it again: Kings Flyers Cup Final I’m not saying because I think it’s going to happen. What am I, an idiot? I’m saying…

I have a different problem with the mean Kings tweet
