Flyers ‘not taking any s—‘ from Penguins

A minute and 15 seconds after Sidney Crosby gave Pittsburgh an early 1-0 lead on the opening shift of Saturday night’s game, Wayne Simmonds asked Penguins hulking defenseman Jamie Oleksiak to engage in a fight knowing he was surrendering five inches in height and 60 to 70 pounds in weight. "I just went up and I asked him immediately and I was happy he said, ‘Yeah,’" Simmonds said. From that moment, the Flyers sent the message that Saturday night wasn’t going to be a replay of the previous week, when they waved the white flag in a 6-0 loss to the Maple Leafs.
