It's time the Flyers play the way they're capable of - and no better time to do it than tonight. Brodeur hasn't been his typical self lately, and the Flyers have to take advantage of it while they can.
Again i will suggest healthy scratching Hartnel until after the olympics, he needs a strong message sent to him. No doubt Kovy scores tonight, but please get 2 points tonight to stay in the playoffs.
We HAVE to win these games in hand and finish strong going into the break.
Am I the only one who thinks the Devils are really shallow at center?
We are extremley shallow at center. Elias can play both wing and center so having him out for so long really hurt us - it got to the point where we had 1 scoring line of Parise - Zubrus - Zajac that was the only line really producing, but was broken up so Zubrus could relieve Niedermayer as 3rd line center because he was "tired" But basically we have 2 legitmate centers in Zajac and Zubrus - after that it's pretty brutal.
Awesome GDT though, that's a wealth of infomration to go through right there!
Just to tell you guys, Bill thinks Leino is playing in Powe's place:
There have been indications that newly acquired Ville Leino may replace Darroll Powe on the left wing of the Jeff Carter line. It is not known as of this writing whom Laviolette is leaning toward scratching from the lineup.
I assume Leighton is starting again so that's not good. The offense is pretty anemic. Just about every forward has been invisible lately. The Flyers are also void of a captain (He's playing for Canada?!) who actually gives a damn outside of brews and college girls. New Jersey cruises to an easy 2 points.

Carter with ever single goal. Brodeur leaves the geame after straining his neck, ducking on a Carter high and wide wrister from his own goal line. Hundreds of fans see their life flash before their eyes as the puck passes through the protective mesh and ricochets around the stands for five minutes
