And now it's a best of three... Yes!

The Good -

- Miller
- Boucher
- Gerbe
- Poms getting on the scoresheet
- Gragnani moving the puck....
- Physical play early. Grier and Kaleta again lead the charge
- Myers was much better in his own zone tonight and had the better of his checks most of the night

The Bad -

- Gaustad twice handing the Flyers glorious chances in the third
- Ennis inability to get on the scoresheet and generally soft play
- Leopold looked shakey at best. He did a great West Coast Monty impression

The Ugly -

- Tim Connolly. 27 and counting and single-handedly killing the hell out that five-minute powerplay... for the Sabres.
- Myers dropping in the first. Talk about a graying moment....
- Timmonen's spear to end the game.

I don't think you can argue against the fact that Miller stole that one. Buffalo looked BAD in most of the third.

He's mostly responsible for the 2 wins we have in this series...so hopefully the haters can **** finally, please.

I thought we all hate him?






If you told me before the series the Flyers would hate someone more than Kaleta, I wouldn't have believed it.


But, GERBE!!!

I can't imagine an NHL team playing any worse than the Sabres in the 3rd period. Total ineptitude. They were lucky to have the hometown refs on their side. And Miller.

The Unreal:
Miller with some HUGE saves

Good:
Just win baby!
Boucher- keeping his team in it to the end
Overall compete effort tonight
Briere- the guy is a friggin pest
Some of the crease clears- nice to see this team make that area theirs. thats new


B:
the power play
the weak wristed shots
decision making leaving the D zone
Letting the Flyers be the last one out of the D zone too often

U:
****ing flyers not getting off the ice after they lose. Get the **** off the ice doucebags

You said earlier he needed to steal one. Miller reads HFBoards. Holy **** I'm psyched.

Good:
Miller obv
Myers ****ing up Briere at every opportunity.
Gerbe. Gerbe Gerbe Gerbe.
Vanek with a great backcheck at a really good time.
Nieds to Pominville.

Bad:
Vanek with little offense still

Ugly:
Kaleta killing the offense that Vanek did generate.

Good:
- Miller. 2nd shutout and threw in some awesome saves to please the haters.
- Myers. Loved him getting ready to knock out Richards. Loved his physicality.
- Niedermayer. Just solid and sprinkled in some play making. Very smart with the puck.
- Gragnani. Amazon vision. I loved his passing. He NEVER telegraphs where he's going with the puck. In fact, he usually looks off where he's going.
- Grier setting the tone early.
- Kaleta throwing some hits.

Bad:
- Kaleta losing an edge.
- Leopold. C'mon, at least show up offensively.


Ugly:
- Connolly not only not showing up offensively, but with very lazy play.
- Timonen
- Carcillo's face
- Goose being too soft with the puck

The fact that they won this game, should be reason enough to shut people up about Miller.
They team in front of him blew goats in the 3rd.... more grey hairs for my chin.

The 1-3-1, as much as many of you hate it, worked again.

Myers was dominate downlow. Especially on Briere.

Miller shuts the door.

That Myers can be the difference in the series. That Myers makes forwards think twice. You have to make them pay the price.

I don't know whether or not to feel good that both of their wins were scores of 1-0.

For all intents, Miller is our captain. He was voted MVP by his team mates. He is the guy who calls others out.

The rules say Goalies can't wear the C. It doesn't mean they're not the team's leader.
