Very solid game by you guys last night which was a gut check time after Hatchers words and the Flyers found a way to come through.
The game was pretty even scoring wise with the NYR's getting maybe the better quality chances but the Flyers body work and hustle came through.It's not often you'll beat Lundquist twice in the last 9 minutes of the 3rd but with 2 deflections, one by his own teamate and one beautiful one by Richards it happened.
Richards had a fantastic game and his line was the best on either side.Jagr was also playing very well and had puck control all night.Pitkanen is really some player.He's a horse and will be your defensive backbone for the next decade.
Of course us NYR fans feel like crap after blowing a 2-0 lead late in the 3rd but the Flyers played very well and found a way to pull it out much like they did last time at MSG but in this game the Flyers were slightly the better skaters where in the 1st game at MSG the NYR's really controlled the play all night but still lost in OT.
Bottom line is that these 2 teams are the best in the division and I think it will be a battle that goes down to the wire.
BTW---anybody see Forsberg being interviewed on OLN?
He w/o a doubt has every intention of suiting up for Sweden in Turino so those hoping that he would put his team before his country will be disappointed.
Can't wait until Saturday
