Flyers win this one, Homer gave them a piece of his mind after the last game. We got to get 4th place back.

we completely got owned last game but we only lost 3-2. If we can't muster up a slightly better effort then I'm gonna be pissed I committed to playoff tickets.

Almost exactly a year ago to the day, The Flyers answered all doubts by manhandling the New Jersey Devils and setting the tone and intensity level for their Playoff Drive.

I don't know about the rest of you but I can't wait for tonight's bloodbath. The Playoffs start tonight!

I can't even imagine what Holmgren said to Carter and Richards in that car ride. Something tells me Richards has one of the best games of his career tonite.

I'm not gonna get picky after our last ****fest, but I'd love to see them beat the Leafs down.

Yikes! I'd hate to take a drive with Homer, he scares me. I wonder if they drive through the Pine Barrens?

This explains why we got so far in the playoffs last year. They were scared he'd beat them.lol

Hopefully that wakes Carter and Richards up.

Let's go Flyers.

I'm posting without having read it yet, but it looks like a process to define best defenses through stats; the Flyers are in the middle of the pack.

http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=273658

Quote:
Does the defence rest? Not if you want to win, it doesn't.

The TSN.ca Player Rankings are generated using a statistical formula that includes the following stats: goals per game, assists per game, plus-minus, power play goals, shorthanded goals, game-winning goals, shots on goal, blocked shots, hits, giveaways, takeaways, faceoff won-loss and penalty differential (drawn - taken).

With those individual rankings to act as a guide, here is a ranking of the each team's defensive unit, with more importance placed on the value of the top four defencemen, since they are the ones who will log the majority of -- and most important -- ice time.

As analyst Keith Jones has mentioned several times this season on TSN, the new NHL is driven by teams with a strong defence. Perhaps not surprisingly, then, the best teams tend to have a strong defence corps.

Quote:

Comment: Even if Coburn hasn't developed as expected this year, this is still a unit with untapped potential as Coburn, Carle and Parent are all young and can get better. Timonen has been effective, but only has three goals on the season, not quite what the Flyers would have anticipated after getting him from Nashville in the summer of 2008.

The article doesn't provide information on how the numbers were calculated.
