PITTSBURGH (93-7 The Fan) – Jim Colony, of the Fan Morning Show, caught up with Penguins’ forward Max Talbot after practice to talk about tonight’s cross-state rivalry game against the Philadelphia Flyers.

The Flyers are currently one point behind the Penguins in the Atlantic Division heading into tonight’s game.

Talbot doesn’t think the away game will be easy.

According to Talbot, games against the Flyers are always fun because the teams know each the other really well and they don’t like each other. The best part, he says is the ability to quiet the opponents’ fans in their own building.

Also, Talbot says he doesn’t think the Flyers and their fans will ever learn to back off Pens’ captain Sidney Crosby. He says it always seems like Crosby plays better when the fans are rooting against him.
