Flyers coach...'We Didin't get any Breaks...."

Can you believe Flyers head coach, John Stevens stated after game #1 that his team ..."got no breaks in the game".....?

Let's see............
1) The Habs hit 2 posts in the first period (with Biron clearly beat on both shots [Koivu and Breezer])
2) Breezer scored a goal for the Flyers
3) Lupul's pp goal was described (on HNIC) by injured Flyer player Mike Knuble as a "fluke"

but Coach Stevens thinks his team got no breaks in the game! WOW!!!

I WILL SAY THAT THE HABS ULTIMATELY DID GET THEIR SHARE OF THE GAME'S BREAKS AND MADE THE MOST OF THEM

GO HABS GO!

The first Komi penalty was very debatable...more so then the Richards knee on Kovalev.

I guess that for John Stevens a break is Carey Price simply skating away from his goal and letting the Flyers shoot in it.

We frackin' scored their 1st goal for them (thanks Breezer..) and we didnt capitalize on two goal posts.

I just dont get that Midget hockey coach...

Maybe a break for him would be Upshall pushing Komisarek on Price..Price falling down completely outside of his net, therefore leaving an empty net for an easy goal.

Flyers got completely dominated in this game, I can't believe they even had 33shots..one less than us.

He's playing mind games with his team, that's all. He has to psychologically strengthen his team and not let any doubt creep into their minds.

Nice avatar. Carbo's tie is wicked.

The Flyers got a lot of breaks. After seeing the replay once, I thought Richards didn't knee Kovalev, but on a second glance he clearly made contact.

dont exagerate, we did not completely dominate.
We stopped played after the first 10 minutes.
We picked it up again in the 2nd period.

In the third period we looked lost for the most part. No forecheck. Looked like we werent interested in tying the game.

That is one of the worst statements that I have heard from a coach after a game. The own goal by Breisbois and the fluke goal by Lupul made this game closer than what it needed to be, and clearley showed that the Flyers got the breaks. There were two posts as well. The Habs merited the victory tonight and had the better chances overall. If the Habs continue to apply pressure on the Flyers d, and capitalize on the numerous breakdowns and poor defensive zone coverage of the Flyers, we will be okay.

Why don't you all take a step back for a second and realize that he's probably specifically referring to the officiating? While I'm sure you're all going to tell me that he's an idiot in that case too....at least be intelligent enough to try and understand what he is actually trying to suggest.

I guess not. If a player on the opposing team deflecting the puck into his own net isn't a break, I dunno what is.

Carters stick breaking on a face off is not a break for you? Don't act like the Habs were completely responsible for their victory. They had some help.

+1

I haven't seen his interview, but from what I've read here. That seems exactly what he was doing.

Yeah, that was a break... but Kovalev still had to shoot that puck in the top corner of the net...

and umberger had to shoot to puck for breezy to put it in. Same thing. You're team just ended up with one more break and took advantage of it. There is nothing wrong with that.

Yeah Stevens helped us alot by putting Biron in nets. I'm 100% sure we will see Niittymaki before the end of this series. Biron is the lamest goalie in the playoffs right now. I would choose alot of 2nd goalies from teams in the playoffs right now before I choose Biron.

Halak, Budaj, Hasek or Osgood (depending on who you think is backup), Boucher, and I would even think about using Holmqvist or Conklin before him.
