Personally I'd give Leighton BOTH the credit and blame in the two series... and again my original point was that a relatively steady goalie such as Bryz should prevent that from occurring in that manner going forward.
In any case, I don't think this horse should be beaten any longer... and I don't really believe we are that much in disagreement as we agree the Flyers as a team, including Leighton played well in one series and not so much in the other... at least I hope we aren't.
EDIT: And the Flyers did score a lot of goals in the SCF also, BTW.
I thought our skaters played great against the Blackhawks. They went toe to toe with the toughest team to play with in the league.
