Quotable: Sidney Crosby Doesn’t Like the Flyers, Because He Doesn’t Like the Flyers

Watch Sidney Crosby fight Claude Giroux, get slashed by Mike Richards and dragged across the ice by Derian Hatcher all in one post! Oh, and you can hear him explain why doesn't like the Flyers, too.

Remember when Mike Richards and Sidney Crosby used to insist that they didn’t have a problem with one another? And remember how infuriating that was when everything you saw on the ice indicated otherwise and you just wanted them to come out and say it?

Well, you don’t have to worry about such matters any longer. Crosby has now made it clear exactly how he feels about this current crop of Flyers following his Game 3 incident with Jake Voracek and Kimmo Timonen and eventual fight with Claude Giroux. 

From Crosby’s postgame press scrum Sunday:

Crosby: “I don’t like any guy on their team. So [Voracek's] glove was near me, he went to pick up and I pushed it.”

Reporter: “Why?”

Crosby: “Because I don’t like them.”

Reporter: “Why don’t you like them?”

Crosby: “Because I don’t like them. I don’t like any guy on their team.” … “Was I supposed to sit there and pick up his glove for him? What was I supposed to do?”

So anyway, here’s this Derian Hatcher video for the 94,739,840 time, because the link is near me and I’m putting it up. I mean, what am I supposed to do, sit here and not post it? This guy knows what I’m talking about…
