The Penguins and Flyers resume their fierce rivalry tonight at Mellon Arena, a game which adds increased interest when you consider the Pens' relative health and unveiling of a new power play. It should be a good one, as if you needed another reason to tune in.

But exactly how good is this rivalry? SI recently named it as the best of the decade in the NHL, and the 2000 playoff game between the franchises got top honors as the game of the decade (for the record, Pens-Wings Game 7 last season was #2).

In fact, the Pens were deservedly all over the "Best Of" series, placing several players past and present on the All-Decade Team (Sidney Crosby, Jaromir Jagr, Markus Naslund, Sergei Zubov), and making several appearances on the "Memorable Performances" list, which brought back some great memories and led with the dramatic return of #66 nine years ago this month.

If you've got some time to kill this afternoon, it's an interesting series, and the individual lists are below:
