Sometimes, you can just sense something special is happening with this team.

And tonight seems to just continue that feeling.

- They totally pulled that win out of the fire. Nothing good was going on, then Richards goes for a stupid check, but we blow the first half of the PP. It looked bleak. Carter breaks his stick (ghosts anyone?), Koivu wins the draw and Kovy with a bouncing puck goes glove side on Biron to tie it. I hate to use words like ''destiny'' and ''magic'' and ''meant to be'' in round 2...but this is not some ordinary playoff run...

- Another SOLID night of work from Begin-Smolinski-Kostopoulos and they get rewarded with the winner.

- How demoralizing is that for Philly? 2-0 and 3-2 leads blown. Can they recover?

- He had another mediocre (at best) game, but Markov made the key play on the OT winner.

- The Kosty bros looked good for a 2nd straight game.

- Komisarek, use your brain man. Two bad penalties.

- Not sure what Carbo does with his top 2 lines next game. Higgins-Koivu-Kovalev never seemed to get it going tonight. The K brothers together just works.

- How many more weird goals can you get in one game?

- Please bench Dandenault. He just brings that line down because he doesn't do much of anything. Streit-Lapierre-Ryder or Latendresse-Lapierre-Streit PLEASE. At least those combinations have 2 guys who can create offence.

- Price wasn't at his best tonight, that 3rd goal could have been a killer.

- All in all, this wasn't good enough. We need to be MUCH better. I expect this will actually look like a playoff game Saturday.

- There was much more room in the defensive zone than against Boston. That's good for us.

- Higgins just said on the radio ''it was a calm feeling on the bench, we knew we were going to tie it.'' This team is confident right now!
