Beef Invictus 12-16-2011 06:10 PM

Well crap, I can't watch at that time.

Great GDT as always!

Phileeguy 12-16-2011 06:23 PM

Gonna be tough going against TT. Here's hoping he has an off day. No Chara would be okay too.

Thanks MSE, LGF.

Broad st phantom 12-16-2011 06:24 PM

A win over Boston would make this win streak that much more better.

Kaktus* 12-16-2011 06:39 PM

Boston is just too strong imo. I believe...

Yes, good sir, i feel your pain.

StandingCow 12-16-2011 09:11 PM

I love PM5K! Nice choice!

This is going to be the biggest challenge yet for the Flyers, specially with our injuries.

Hockeypete49 12-16-2011 09:14 PM

Get pucks deep and fore-check the hell out of them.


Thanks MSE

SolidSnakeUS 12-16-2011 09:43 PM

Same. I am really expecting a rough game... :help:

CanadianFlyer88 12-17-2011 12:15 AM

Saturdays and Sundays are normally the days that I get to watch the Flyers live. The early start is going to throw a wrench in those plans tomorrow. :(

PhillyFlying 12-17-2011 12:48 AM

i'll be happy if we escape this game without injury.

F L Y E R S 12-17-2011 01:23 AM

Should be a good game.

Hit everything that moves. Get Hartnell and Simmonds in front of Thomas and keep the legs moving. We have great team speed, so use it. Also, JVR, do something!

Prongo 12-17-2011 01:49 AM

Play ****ing hard, play for each other, support each other. Come back to the bench ****ing dripping tired with ****ing sweat and exhaustion, and put your foot on the ****ing gas!

Let's go Flyers! Destroy the Bruins!

god, i wish that speech wasn't from before that awful nyr game...

still, no finer words describe what it means to be a flyer.

mirimon 12-17-2011 02:43 AM

If Chara is out, we've at least been lucky to face opponents hit by significant injuries...

I think the game plan is pretty obvious. Go down 0-3 early on and then ****ing giddy-up and go.

Krishna 12-17-2011 03:50 AM

Lets beat these *****es

RevUpThoseGolfCarts 12-17-2011 04:16 AM

Whenever I see Boston highlights, it's always Rask in net. Is he the starter now?

They are probably trying to rest thomas as much as possible for the playoffs.

Chara is " most probably/definitely" a start as the B's sent Steven Kampfer (D) down to Providence for the weekend.

Philadelphia Flames 12-17-2011 07:18 AM

It's going to be a tough and physical game but I expect the guys to bring a lot of energy and hopefully get the win! Lets go Flyers!

poneill27 12-17-2011 08:01 AM

Huge game! Great job MSE!!
