When anyone asks Montreal defenseman Hal Gill about the Flyers, he gives a nice lengthy answer.
The most recent flaming of Philadelphia from the mouth of the 6-foot-7, 250 lbs. blue liner came on Saturday, when he was asked about facing the Flyers –his team’s Eastern Conference Final opponent.
“It’s easy to hate the Flyers,” Gill told TSN “They’ve been the Broad Street Bullies, their fans are loud and obnoxious.
“If you’re from Philly that’s great, if you’re not — you hate them. It’s fun to hate the Flyers, just like it’s fun for them to hate our fans and our team. It should be a good series as far as hate goes.”
