Why won't anyone stand in front of Biron?

Basically, it looks like the Flyers want to win more. The will to win or the fear of losing coupled with desire and heart can overcome just skill and speed on most days.
Say what you want but Philly has alot more character players on their team than we do. The difference, in my opinion, is the Canadian content.
Some may agree with that comment but i dont. The guys want it as much as the Flyers and the stats prove it. How can you dominate a team more than we are doing right now?? It is also not true that nobody wants to pay the price, its more about the style they play. The first 2 lines like to pass the puck and set up plays instead of throwing it to the net and hope. The bros are learning on the go Kovalev never played that style and the others try as much as they can to crash the net.
Right now the problem is mental, things are just not going our way even if we try hard. Now it seems the guys are lost and a bit discouraged by Biron. With the way we dominated this series and still lost 3 games, just one win could just flip the script. Thats all they need....Philly having more character is bull, they havent done anything great in these series aside from getting many gifts from our goaltenders. Give us a lead just one...
