2. We are not going to be a factor this year unless Gaborik starts playing better and gives us some more offensive options, or unless he is traded for an A-list player and either Zuc or Fasth step into his role.

3. Lack a killer instinct, we get up 3-0 in a game that could have been much worse for the Flyers (I thought Bryzgalov was the only reason it was 1-0 after the first, we had several glorious chances), and we sit back, two flukey goals of the sort we never get and it's 3-2.

4. Still nothing from Pyatt, why is he playing? If Asham plays like he has the last two games, no reason to have Pyatt on the team. I'd rather play Powe, he's great on the PK, even if he can't score.

Don't want to be too negative, but one line teams don't win in the playoffs. Love Hagelin-Nash-Stepan, but the Flyers bad defense hides that the other lines did not mesh well tonight.
The Rangers had the killer instinct to not sit on the 3-2 lead and make it 5-2.

That hasn't happened very often in recent weeks - hell, it hardly happened last season.
