The Philadelphia Flyers Facebook page is helping fans prepare for their upcoming playoff series against the New York Rangers by asking them to unfriend any Rangers fans they know on Facebook.

The team provided a link to a graph search which lists all of the friends of a user who have liked the Rangers Facebook page, so the the Flyers faithful could easily end their online friendships.

If nothing else, this should reduce incidences of playoff-based cyber bullying in the country's northeast corridor.
