Stanley Cup Final, Game 6 Live Blog: Wachovia Center Crowd Is Electric And Orange

- They start off with the usual fare here in Philadelphia, and can you really blame them? All the usual pump up music. Don't Stop Believe, that Tonight's Gonna Be A Good Night song by the Black Eyes Peas (I don't know its real name, so whatever). There are also about four different pump-up videos prior to the singing of the anthem.

- As the Flyers hit the ice, in what will no doubt be their last home game in this incredible playoff run, the Wachovia Center absoultely exploded.

- Starting lineups for the Flyers: Leighton in goal, Carle and Pronger on defense, Hartnell, Briere and Leino up front.

- And for the Hawks: Niemi in goal, Keith and Seabrook on the blueline, Toews, Hossa and Kopecky up front.

- Also, the Kate Smith / Lauren Hart rendition of 'God Bless America' is amazing. I've seen it at least 20 times and it never, ever gets old. Absolutely spine-tingling.
