That's what I was wondering when I caught the Flyers-Habs on OLN last, up by 2 goals, at two different points, yet they kept letting the Habs back in, after awhile, I just wanted the Habs to win because the Flyers didn't seem to want the win, even with all the chances to bury it. Teams can't even sit on 2-3 goal leads and hope to win any longer.

Not sure if it's all the injuries or what, seemed like the team lacked a lot of drive in the 3rd. If I were the Flyers, I'd rather play NJ with home adv, than face the Sabres on the road in the 1st round.
