It can't contend with Hartnell, JRV, Giroux, Briere, et al. underperforming. Ball's in their court.

2. August 14th, 2008. Sure, a little earlier in the baseball season than we are now in the hockey season, but the Phils had just lost a bunch of bad games, and J-Roll was running his mouth, and I confidently predicted that they were toast.

Today, may all pessimists here be as wrong as I was on that day.
I'd love to see them rebound, now that things look bad. I expect some resilience but it has to start tonight. This is a must win game.

We can't leave it to a home and home with the Rangers to make the playoffs or secure a spot. It has to happen before then.
