There’s no place like home for resilient Rick Tocchet

Sure enough, Tocchet stepped to the microphone and got jeered by the crowd at Wells Fargo Center. After all, he had crossed over to the enemy.

“You have to think it’s the best rivalry in the NHL,” Tocchet said of the Penguins and Flyers. “It’s really intense. Sidney Crosby could be one of the most hated visiting players in Philadelphia.”

Tocchet said that’s because the Penguins center is such a good player.

“It’s actually a real fun rivalry,” Tocchet said.
