Philadelphia Flyers’ new playoff T-shirt trolls Sidney Crosby (PHOTO)

The Philadelphia Flyers' first T-shirt giveaway for the 2012 Stanley Cup Playoffs featured Scott Hartnell in Hulk Hogan mode, asking fans "WHATCHA GONNA DO?" It was inspired by an incident during the regular season between the Flyers and the Pittsburgh Penguins (and a dude dressed as Hulk Hogan).

Their second shirt? Also inspired by the Penguins. Sidney Crosby, to be exact:

.
The shirt was inspired by this testy exchange between the Pittsburgh Penguins captain and a reporter after Game 3, in which Crosby got into a fight with Claude Giroux following a bit of antagonism against Jakub Voracek's glove:

Q: When you knocked Voracek's glove on the ice and hit it away was that just out of frustration?

"I don't like any guy on their team there. It was near me and he went to pick it up and I pushed it."

Q: Why don't you like them?

"I don't like them, because I don't like any guy on their team so."

Apparently, the feeling's mutual. Even if we secretly hoped "don't like you either!" was inspired by "Star Wars." Like everything in life.
