I agree, it will be crucial to split in Tampa Bay. I think game 1 would be the easier game to win since Tampa has been off so long and should be rusty. If the Flyers win this series it will be in 6 or 7. it will take an extraordinary effort since Tampa has so much speed. The play of Gagne, Kapanen, Recchi, Roenick, Zhamnov, Amonte, the play of our best skaters will be crucial, because of the countering team speed. I don't know if matching up Primeau against a line with Martin St. Louis on it will be entirely effective, they might be better off putting Zhamnov's line against them. However, Tampa Bay switches lines more than we do. Definetaly a hard matchup, if you ask me, it favors Tampa Bay, I just don't like the way we match up against them.
