If anyone forgot how much the Philadelphia Flyers and Pittsburgh Penguins dislike one another, well - that person was the April Fool on Sunday.

The Flyers won 6-4, but not before a melee erupted with less than two minutes remaining, which included Peter Laviolette climbing onto the area separating the benches to give Penguins head coach Dan Bylsma a piece of his mind - oh, and a Hulk Hogan impression from the Flyers' Scott Hartnell...to a Hulk Hogan impersonator.

It's not like these two teams have ever done anything remotely like this before. Right?

With the win, the Flyers almost assure themselves of a playoff date with the Pens (at the very least have one more regular season game against one another).

If they meet, one team will win the series, but the war they'll go through will also most certainly leave them covered in bruises, if not leave them limping into the second round.
