If anything, ESPN should be biased AGAINST the Flyers seeing as how the Flyers are owned by the same company that owns VERSUS.

Yes I watch plenty of ESPN during baseball and football seasons. Some gems include:
Every analyst sans Kruk saying the Phillies would lose to the Rays in the WS as well as the Dodgers in the NLCS
The Yankees, Red Sox, Mets and Dodgers continually getting lead stories over the Phillies
At least half the analysts before the 2007, 2008 and 2009 seasons picking the Mets to win the NL East
Eagles drastically beating Dallas in the final day for the final playoff spot and the headline being "Romo slips and hurts self in postgame shower"
Every time a Philly fan does something stupid (tasered, laser pointer, etc) it's a headline but when similar incidents of stupidity happen in another city it's conveniently ignored (Boston fans throwing condoms on the ice, Dodger fan running onto the field and mooning the opposing pitcher, White Sox fans attacking a 1st base coach, etc)
Like I said, it was proven at 8:00 PM Thursday that you are a moron.

I don't recall Kruk picking anyone over the Phillies and ESPN not celebrating a Eagles win over Dallas

What do you conisder a "celebration"?

That they did more interviews or devoted a bit more coverage to the winning team?

That seems pretty normal for all sports networks.

ESPN seems to do it a little more when it comes to Philly.

And Kruk has generally been right about the Phillies. So you criticize accurate analysis?
And the last time the Eagles beat Dallas, the lead story was about Romo slipping in the shower afterwards.
And if ESPN is so inherent biased for Philly (which it's been proven for years it isn't) why do you continue to watch it?

Well have fun doing that. Meanwhile there are some of us who have better things to do than calculate the time they mention the Stanley Cup and then whine about it on the internet. Get a life.

Like I said, it was the FIRST 6pm Sportscenter since the Blackhawks won the Cup and was surprised it was not the 2nd, 3rd, or 4th story
