Scott Hartnell had some extra motivation to win the series against the Penguins after this sign showed up in Game 5 at Pittsburgh. For those unfamiliar with Lisa Renneke, she is the ex-wife of the power forward and was rumoured to have slept with former Flyer, Jeff Carter. While both publicly denied the affair, the divorce sounded brutal and Hartnell had a big decline in offence with the personal distraction dragging throughout the season. Well flashforward two years and Hartnell had a career season with 37 goals and 67 points with Renneke behind him, and Jeff Carter on another team (and maybe behind Renneke).
With a solid mix of rookies, veterans and role players, the Flyers are now one of the top Stanley Cup contenders with Pittsburgh and Vancouver out, and will rest for a few days as they await their round two opponent. The Flyers are a scary team and we can only hope that Hartnell keeps taking to Twitter and interacting with fans while chirping his ex in the process.
