Was that the "Wasted Years" request? My favorite Maiden song, but I didn't want a negative vibe flowing. I'm trying to stay 100% sunshine, rainbows and unicorns positive after game 1.

I was at that game.
I almost had 1,245 heartattacks. I kept count.

LETS GO FLYERS!
I work, and they seem to play better when I cannot watch.

oh and someone mentioned 'The Trooper'
On the video there is a saying on the screen that says...
"Cannon to the right of them.
Cannon to the left of them.
Cannon right in front of them.
Volly'd and thunder'd!"

It is a sign!

Bennys wanted "Heaven Can Wait" for an upcoming game.

"Wasted Years" was the Detroit game.

Am i the only person who'd like to see briere with gags on the same line? Feels like they've only played together on the same line like 10-15 games or something since danny's been on the flyers. (obviously because of the injuries)

But i just think they had good chemistry before gagne's season ended because of concussions and that they should be playing together.

Gags - Briere - Giroux for all i care, the poutine line.

I really have a good feeling about this one... last couple of days so much negative written in the papers/on the internet... I think Flyers acknowledge they have to play as a play off team, they wil come out flying and even the series. mark my words!

LET'S GO FLYERS! ,:handclap :

In keeping with the Italian theme, Carcillo is out...




...Sbisa is in.


Nice to see Luca back, and in a huge game too. Should be interesting to see how he does.

MUST win game, show some ****ing urgency.

We need to win this desparately. Pleeease win!

I get the feeling that because we overachieved last year, we might underachieve this year.

But....

every single one of the teams I have followed for the past year have gone to the Final Four of the playoffs or finished 4th of that sport at least once:

Flyers (last year), Liverpool FC (final four of CL and 4th in EPL - both last year), LA Dodgers (last season), my nascar driver, Harvick (finished 4th), Villanova (just recently in Final Four), and you might as well throw in my previous season of Fantasy Football (4th of four)

So many 4's has to mean something...that we're getting there again! We can't lose this series!

Let's try this again....Let's Go Flyers!

We need: Richie to have a little luck in this game; Carter to play the entire game as he did in the 2nd half of game 1; Hartnell to be smarter; Carle to visit the wizard and get a heart; the rest of the guys to lock the coaching staff in the locker room until the end of the game.

Prediction: Philadelphia 3 Pittsburgh 1

Keys to The Game:

1- The Flyers need to establish position in the Pittsburgh zone early and often. It wasn't until the third period that the Flyers had any sustained pressure and by that point the hole was to deep to climb out. If the Flyers are going to generate any offense or draw a penalty they will need to be more efficient gaining the zone, to many times our forwards were going 1 on 3 into the zone and by the time any support came, the play was heading back the other way.

2- Defense needs to start moving the puck quicker and smarter. There were numerous instances when the defense made poor reads that lead to neutral zone turnovers the shut down the Flyers attack. If the defense wants to play sixty minutes of defense, it would be better to just drop back all the forwards instead of having them get caught moving the wrong direction.

3- Aside from Malkins fluky goal and Crosby getting his on the PP, the Flyers did a good job containing the top two lines, however, the best defense is a good offense and the Flyers need to start attacking Malkin and Crosby when they are on the ice. It seemed the Flyers were okay with just playing even with those lines and hoping to capitalize on the Stall line which is just a mistake since that might be there best defensive line. The Flyers need to start attacking the top two lines instead of of trying to neutralize them at the cost of all offensive pressure.

4- Smart Hockey. The Flyers know the league and officials are watching everything they do with a magnifying glass, but truth be told, that should make it even easier to play hockey. You know that anything you do will be called, so there is no black and white. The Flyers can only be upset with themselves if they put themselves in the position where the officials can determine the outcome of the game.

5- Remember, emotion is good, play off of it. Every member of the team should be embarrassed with how the game turned out and should focus on what they need to do to play better. If they focus their emotions on their game, then it will translate into success on the ice.

6- “Success is not the result of spontaneous combustion. You must first set yourself on fire.” LETS GO FLYERS

Can someone please post the Biron clip saying "I don't whine" to Crosby? I can't find it anywhere.

Don't let me down, Flyers. Please.

I initially posted this in the Carcillo thread...figured I'd share it here, too. It's a gem (fast forward to 8:24) inspired by the way some of the Pens got...hurt...the other night.
