I don’t know about you but I’m tired of people saying, “we’re still the better team”, or “we’ll still win the series”. People are saying this even after this overtime loss the the Devils tonight. This is the exact same attitude that has the Flyers in this position to begin with. I do agree, that overall, the Flyers are the better team. But you can’t assume that. You can’t assume that your going to win a game, or a series.
It’s the NHL Playoffs. You have to play scared and desperate. Like your being attacked by someone in the dark night.
This team needs to wake up. They need to skate faster. They need to become more physical. They need to shoot the puck instead of over-passing for the perfect shot. Scoring goals is a game of numbers–the more pucks you put on net, the more will go in. It’s basic mathematics.
I wouldn’t want to be a trash can in the Flyers locker room tonight with Peter Laviolette around.
