The frustration and resulting penalities indicated Montreal had no answers for this aggressive forecheck in game one. If Montreal doesn't adjust this could get ugly quick.

They are playing with house money since they have exceeded expectations

Wrong again.......back in October many experts in the hockey world predicted the Flyers to win the Cup based upon the team roster at the time. However.....I don't think they would have predicted this particular path to the Cup should they indeed win it.

What a foolish statement. It's clear you have no clue what you're talking about.

Let me try this again.

The Flyers were not supposed to make they playoffs

The Flyers got in the playoffs the last game of the season

The Flyers were not expected to do anything in the playoffs and surprised everyone when beating the Devils

The Flyers was down 3-0 and came back to beat the Bruins



So now that the season hasn't already been a success anything that happens now is just a BONUS!!


GET IT???????????????????????????

According to whom ? The only issue that brought doubt into the Flyers making the playoffs were injuries to key players otherwise they were picked by everyone with hockey expertise to not only make the playoffs but go deep in the playoffs.

The Flyers got in the playoffs the last game of the season
As did many other teams.....its called parody.

The Flyers were not expected to do anything in the playoffs and surprised everyone when beating the Devils
The Flyers beat the Devils 5 games to 1 in the regular season series....why would you expect them not to beat the Devils in the playoffs ?

The Flyers was down 3-0 and came back to beat the Bruins
The Flyers got Leighton back in goal and were a much better team because of that.


So now that the season hasn't already been a success anything that happens now is just a BONUS!!


GET IT???????????????????????????
Exactly what TV are you getting your hockey information from Mr. TV and Sports Guy ? Are you sure you not sitting in front of your dryer when its on and mistaking what your seeing as a hockey sports show ?

Every credible hockey fan knew the Flyers were more than capable of this if they stayed healthy.

It is hilarious watching Flyers fans insult and contradict each other.
However, . . .
MONTREAL is BACK IN IT ! ! !!
