Not worried. Flyers outplayed them pretty much all period. But penalties are killers, obviously. It's funny, Lilja made 2 good plays on that shift and I was thinking maybe he finally has turned his game around, and then BOOM! Penalty.
Timonen has to do a better job getting that puck out of the zone. If there is one thing I can say about this Flyers team, it's their inability at times to get it out of their zone.
Geez, not like noone here saw that coming in the last pp in the last minute of play. Thats what happens when you don't bury your scoring chances early on. Should have been up at least 3 goals. Teams do it to us all the time when we are sloppy, but we can never be the killer.
There was about the same time left in the last game of the 1987 playoffs when Larry Robinson scored and that gave Montreal a lead. Flyers recovered. Have to forget about it and focus on positive energy.
Too bad we couldn't keep them scoreless through the period. Timonen and Meszaros both had opportunities to clear the zone there.
Pretty solid period otherwise. Couturier continues to impress on the pk. Read is flying out there and is playing with so much confidence. The puck really follows him around atm. Hartnell continues with his good play from the past game, did a good job on the first pp and then that pass to Carle on Jagr's goal. Strange that he has to fall down, even when he makes a good play, though. Very nice puck movement on that goal.
The defense looks fairly solid so far. Lilja could perhaps have avoided that penalty, but Cole did a good job creating it. Carle has made a few risky moves, but so far they've worked out, and he had that great pass to Jagr. Walker hasn't made much noise, which is a good thing.
