This game pretty much sums up why I wanted Bobrovsky starting...so Boucher could come off the bench.

No need for chatter about diving. The Sabres will complain about it because the Flyers beat them at their own game.

Diving is all situational, the refs dropped the ball on a few early calls and tried making up for it by calling penalties against both teams all game. It was a disaster and it kept on snowballing, and the players probably went down "easier" knowing that.

Big question...Did anyone notice giroux getting constant attention on his ankle on the bench in between shifts. The trainer was doing something in his skate almost every time he came off the ice.

Actually, I usually back off from complaining about diving. All that debate does is get people worked up for something the league condones based on their apathetic approach to it.

Nicely put, I totally agree.

I noticed it too, but I'm not really sure what is was for. Hopefully is was just an equipment issue.

I'm thinking Bob get's another shot at them in game three. If he struggles again though, Boucher is probably your goalie from there on out.

Reasonably solid effort ... 4-2 at ES, so the Sabres can just stop with the whining. If this doesn't become a PP fest, Flyers win going away IMO.

I think going into the series everyone knew that sabres only chance at winning was special teams. Teams just cannot match us 5 on 5

I'm not sure I agree with that, because the Sabres have always been a team where the sum is greater than it's parts. This is a team with a coach that made Chris Gratton look good.

Listening to the Buffalo station tonight after the game and they said the penalties were warranted so I don't know why their fans are complaining.

Great win. It wasn't the prettiest win, and it was a coaches nightmare, but we won and it's behind us. Have to tighten up on Monday. If we play with the urgency offensively like we did to day, and defensively like we did on Thursday, it will be a flyers win. they're starting to look like the hard working team that we saw earlier this season. It's not there yet, but it's waiting to come out.
Passes could be better judged, and theyve been trying to force plays too much. and we HAVE to stop collapsing in our own zone.
If Pronger comes back monday, this team will get a huge boost of energy and confidence.

Well we have dominated the play 5 on 5 so far this series IMO

Not sure if it was mentioned already, but during the broadcast, the scroll at the bottom said that the earliest Pronger could be back would be game four. I believe it said Timmy P reported it.

Nodl has an upper-body injury; Flyers unsure right now if he will miss time. Sounds like Z will play in Game 3. #Flyers #PhiBuf

Per Sam C on twitter- Nodle suffered an upper body injury, did not play the third. Possibly opens the door for zherdev

I wonder who he plays with. I doubt they'd want to break up JVR-Giroux-Carter unless they moved Carter onto Richie's line. I don't see Zherdev-Richie and Versteeg working well... We'll see I guess.
