Flyers or Hawks? Soccer players weigh in

PHILADELPHIA -- Some 50,000 fans are expected for Saturday's send-off series finale against Turkey. And you can bet a large number of them will be wearing orange.

Why orange? With the Philadelphia Flyers in the Stanley Cup finals against the Chicago Blackhawks, you can't walk more than a few feet in this city and not see someone wearing the hometown colors. It is the topic everyone in the city can't stop talking about. In every newspaper, on every local television station and sports talk radio outlet, the quest for the Stanley Cup is driving the conversation.

So we couldn't help but ask a few members of the U.S. men's national team about this matchup. After spending two days in the City of Brotherly Love, who do you have in the Stanley Cup finals?

The answers might surprise. Watch this video.
