Mark Recchi played the most of anyone in the game, over 33 minutes. I wonder if that is why he missed like two chances to shoot in OT?

Cherry pretends he can't pronounce words yet he calls Halak "Havlak" or something. If Halak is soooo hard to pronounce, why add more letters to it? Luongo he calls Lulongo. It's all shock value but he never mispronounces Waspy names.

Whenever he puts up a Canadian solider that's moved on -- he never gets those wrong.

Yup, and there have been many Francophones who have passed away in Afghanistan. Shows he is able to do it, he just chooses not to.

think the bruins can sustain that kind of pressure for the entire series? or will they tire out?

It's not spin.

Yes, Sturm is a better hockey player than Thornton, but he has not displayed it for the last 6-8 weeks when he has been virtually invisible. If you watched the B's regularly you would know that. Personally, I'd like to see Marchand (B's prospect) get a shot, but that is unlikely.

The OT I've pretty much thrown out; the Bruins played a dangerously over aggressive forecheck that can't be sustained for an extended period of time.

One positive was the play of JVR. He showed glimpses of his full skill set today, and a big performance from JVR will be key in the absence of Carter and Gagne.

One thing that really concerned me though was the defensive play of our forwards. A lot of goofy turnovers and poor clear attempts. Briere was awful defensively.
That's a very convenient theory considering how badly the B's outplayed PHI in the OT, but I beg to differ. The B's forecheck was not "dangerously aggressive", the Flyers just handled the puck like a hot potato in their own end in the OT.

I expect the Flyers to be better in Game 2, but don't forget the B's had nearly as long a layoff as PHI, were rolling out a couple of new lines due to Savard's return, and they also played all but a couple of minutes a forward down (which further messed up the lines). In addition, it's not likely that Rask is going to give up four goals per game, based on the regular season and the first round.

See ya Monday.

The Bruins had 4 days. The Flyers had 8. That isn't exactly nearly the same layoff. Also, i'm glad that the Bruins rolling new lines was mentioned. It's not like the Flyers had to compensate for the loss of 3 forwards that they had the last game that they played.

During the playoffs, anything more than a couple of days could be considered a "layoff". Every B's fan is well aware that the Flyers are short three forwards, BOS is short two of their Top 4 d-men (Seidenberg and Stuart), but are not using it as an excuse.

If I was going to be argumentative, I could also say that the 8 days of practice gave PHI more time to get their lines squared away, than the 4 the B's had, right?

'Cept Flyer fans would come back with the fact that the Flyers have reacted poorly to layoffs all season long.

Oh, you're right. I was looking at the box score/game summary on the Flyers website and Chara is listed right below Recchi, and I accidentally looked at his numbers.

Maybe you'll laugh at me for this, but I wouldn't expect to Boucher to give up five every game either.

thats over the course of one game. what about over the course of a series? the caps tried to play aggressively, and even though it was their specialty, it looked like they were out of gas towards the end.

it also needs to be pointed out that the flyers have a tendency to lose the first game in a series, then win anyways. the NJ series is the first time the flyers had won the first game in a series in a long time. it seems like this team gets better as they know what to expect, and as a group arent that great at the start. theyve loved coming out flat in first periods all season

game 2 is going to be a better barometer of how this series will go, i bet

The Caps were out of gas? They looked like a dominant team in at least Games 6 and 7, and Halak stole both games.

Sounds like I missed a bad first and a good rest of the game. I love that Parent got a goal -- how's that for unexpected?

The fact that they came back against a very good defensive team is nothing but good news for game 2.

Can't wait to see it!

Perhaps if you spent more time reading the posts you're responding to and understanding the situation, you wouldn't have to spend as much time getting blue in the face with useless responses. This whole tirade about Kalinski and Betts and whoever else not deserving to be above the 4th line....do I seriously need to point out that 3 regulars are injured and out of the line-up? Whether they deserve to be moved up or not, when a team faces injuries they often face the situation of having guys playing above their head. Does this really need to be explained?

Lol, that's what I've been saying...I said I'd put Giroux at center and move Briere to wing...I ****ing said that. So what the hell are you trying to say by agreeing that it should be done? That leaves the center slot open for two more lines...and filling them is what I've been talking about. Sooo, what the hell are you talking about?

THESE ARE EXTENUATING CIRCUMSTANCES. YOU DO IT BECAUSE THERE ARE 3 ****ING REGULARS OUT OF THE LINE-UP, AND YOU MOVE BRIERE OUT OF CENTER BECAUSE HE PLAYS DEFENSE LIKE A BLIND LITTLE GIRL.

I think he's still angry that Claude Boivin didn't turn out to be the next Tocchet. I'm more upset that Pat Murray didn't turn into the next Murray Craven....
