If the Flyers were just chasing either the Rangers or the Penguins, I'd say there was an outside chance. Having both of them higher up in the standings makes this pretty much impossible.
Ignoring the slim chance of grabbing #1 in the conference, I was wondering if the Flyers would be better off in the #4 or the #5 slot. They are a very good road team, especially if they continue to play tighter defense and get superior goaltending from Bryzgalov. Plus, as long as the visitor can split the first two games in a series, they come home to their own fans' thunderous welcome. Not to mention that Laviolette doesn't stress line matching as much as some coaches, which is really the only tangible benefit of home-ice advantage.
