Funny how you make this statement after blowing a 2-0 lead going back to Montreal on these so-called POS.

I was there screaming my head off at him....he had a hurt finger, not only that though, when he came out to play the puck some of his decisions on what he did with it were just plain stupid.

If you're going to rail on Carle for game one, you better recognize Kimmo played like absolute ******* last night.

Yes, the 2010 playoffs.

this team got pushed around like ragdolls in the second period last night. it was nice to see a response in the third, they just need to bear down and bury some of those chances. thomas is a good goalie but we did our part to make him look like it. i won't freakout until we're in a 3-0 hole, but the goaltending is killing me. not sure i can bear another year of this nonsense.

They both suck. The only difference is that Matt Carle doesn't have a no-trade clause.

Carle was atrocious last night, too, sorry. Kimmo hasn't looked good. Can't believe we've lost twice in overtime on missed D to D passes behind the net, wtf.

Tough one to take.

Thomas stole that game. Period. If an average to good goalie (aka: mere mortal) is in net for the Bruins, the Flyers take that game easily.

Goaltending didn't lose the game for the Flyers, but it won it for the Bruins.

54 SOG is nothing to sneeze at. There's not a whole lot the Flyers need to change, other than getting in Thomas' face a little more. And giving Shelley a seat in the pressbox.

Are you ****ed?

Thomas made some stellar saves on what should have been sure things. The Flyers hit a few posts themselves.

52 saves says Thomas was the reason Boston won.

Calendar says 2011 though.


Sean O'Donnell gets paid too much to not play 10 minutes through regulation. The reason we spent money on defense is so the third pair would actually play in the playoffs.


And once again we can't complete a pass behind our own net in overtime, and it results in a turnover.

OT is like a staring contest...and we blinked first. The little things have killed us. That's why Buffalo took us to 7 games (goaltending, too). Look at the goals in the 1-0 games. Poor coverage. Minor mental mistakes that blew up in our face. NHLers are so good that you can't afford to turn the puck over. One mistake and you're toast, especially with our situation in net.

Yep, he stole that game for sure. Flyers shooters have to stop trying to get in close and cram. Gotta start wedging it in close or shooting instead of saucering. Stopping on the doorstep every now and again helps too.

This series is far from over. We played a very strong game (not counting the first 5 min of the 2nd, arguably some of the worst hockey I've seen them play this year)

Lavi made adjustments throughout the game which were sorely lacking in game 1. Timmy Thomas stole that game. He played extraordinary and did not simply "make the saves he needed to"

That shift where Shelley was dumped like a sack of potatoes was the momentum swing. It energized the B's bench and deflated the building.

I agree with the earlier caller that it was the icing chase with Paille that finally seized up Prong's hamstring. He was labouring before that and his stride and mobility were awkward all game. I'm confident he can return for game 3 and make a significant contribution while playing reduced minutes.

Again, any news on Carter? His return along with Prongs would be huge.

Home ice ain't what it used to be and we all know, for some reason, that this team plays better on the road. I'm not expecting to win both in Boston but its very realistic.

I'm purposely avoiding any harsh criticism for all the members who've already jumped ship but you make me sick. I have no idea what you see when you tune into a game. You'll never get this sport, move on to wrestling or something of the like and quit wasting everyone's time.

You ask yourself, why am I a fan of this team? Is it geography? Is it passed down from Father to Son or is it a knowledge that they, the Orange and Black, idealize a code to live by and to be transferred and carried out in your own daily lives, and perhaps for some, even embody a small portion of their soul.

I love this team, they have been a constant in my life for over 26 years now. They have seen me through good times and bad. Now is the time to dig in, now is the time close ranks, now is the time to hold your head high and now is the time to stand up and be counted.

******* it! We're gonna win this series!

What's funny too is that I am pretty sure they're good buddies. They played together on a line in Providence sometime around '06, and Versteeg had an amazing year. I am pretty sure he's said in interviews that his favorite player he's ever played with is Krejci.

Exactly. If they lose tomorrow, then we start panicking. If the Flyers play they way the did yesterday, I have no doubt they can even it up in Boston.
