I think flyers need to play smarter, when they dump the puck in, they need to do it strategically and not just dump it in giving the puck to Brodeur. Too easy for Brodeur, he just sauces a pass midway opening up easy breaks for the devils. Key problem for flyers is they cant get it passed the devils defenders. If they can somehow overcome that and get it passed the red dots... i think they have a shot.
I agree 100% and posted the exact same thoughts in one of my threads (just in my windbag style) but you said it much more concise.
I shook my head when I saw that the line was NJ(+120) and the Flyers (-140) for this game 5 on Tuesday. I love the Flyers but I have to be realistic... They are not just losing these games to NJ... They are getting BEAT.
NJ has dominated in almost every way... frustrating not only the Flyers but fans like me as well.
I think that the Flyers will play well enough to keep us fans hoping just long enough... until some player from NJ (most likely Patrik Elias) sends the NJD to the Conference Finals with a OT winner to rip all our hearts out. I've seen this f^cKing movie once to often and I always hate the ending.
I hate the New Jersey Swamp person... To Hell with that team. I can't wait for Brodeur to retire and I hope that every Goalie they get after him plays like Brad Thiessen did for the Pens this season... for the rest of eternity. Whatever curse the Flyers goalies have now... I hope that NJ gets it 1,000,000 times worse. I hope they move that franchise back to friggin KC and rename them the Scouts... AGAIN.
Nothing would make me happier than the Flyers winning the next 3 games... and I'll be sitting here watching every Flyers game with my heart in my stomach... getting ready for what I think is inevitable. You just don't know how much I hate for the Flyers to lose to f^cKing NJ again.
2010 seems like such a long time ago... but we still have some hope... just not much left... except hope itself...
