We have to be real here too. Making the playoffs is not the same as winning the cup. You have to admit, the Flyers are flunkies in the playoffs.
Making the playoffs is infinitely better than missing them, especially in the amazingly pathetic manner that the Rangers manage to do every year. No matter how you try to spin it, you know youíd much rather watch your team at least make the playoffs and have some semblance of hope as opposed to ending the season on a disappointing note like youíre used to. Letís be real here, right? And as far as knowing what will happen in the playoffs, why donít you enlighten us? You either know something we donít, or youíre full of hot air; Iím taking the latter.

As for tonightís game, Iíd have to say the Flyers are playing as good now as Iíve seen them play in recent memory. They just seem to be doing everything right, whether itís defense, scoring, special teams - and theyíre getting good goaltending from both Jeff Hackett and Robert Esche. This hot streak will have to come to an end sometime, but Iím enjoying it while it lasts.
