Now even if it was Boston after a 3 OT series winning game 7 we were playing, that effort wouldn't have done it. 6-0? Probably not. But we're losing this game 1 no matter who won the Bruins-Flyers series. Ugly ass stuff. Oh and a bit more grit in the lineup would be nice. Bergeron, you're ****ing through! Gone. Not scoring on the PP and defending like a dolt. If Martin sticks by him, I'll puke. O'Byrne's back.
Flyers is not a cinderella team.
Before the season start, many analysts were seeing them in cup finals.
As for the Habs, they were at best 5th and at worst 10th in the East conference.
Yet, winning on a shootout against Lundqvist to qualify for the playoffs, and coming back from a 0-3 series, can be seen as Cinderella.
This is Michael Leighton in net. The guy we acquired on waivers from Philadelphia in 2007. The guy we traded for a 7th rounder in 2007 to Carolina. This whole goalie thing in Philly from Emery to Leighton to Boucher to Leighton can also be pretty much Cinderella story....
