I think that if the flyers fall behind next game, they will get buried. Seeing as this has been a weird series, do you think it is more important for the flyers or pens to get that first goal tomorrow?

Not that important...... I'd be shocked to see any game in this series end 1-0.

Been waiting for the Flyers to get buried all year when falling behind the Penguins.

Im cant remember the last game in which they werent behind or tied after the 1st period. While I dont like this formula, it seems to be working.

Come back to beat the Pens from 2-0 down four times this month.

Of the two teams, I don't think the Flyers are the ones who need to worry about getting buried.

The real question is how is Pittsburgh going to react when falling behind in a game. Jagr's goal in the third period yesterday was the first time the Penguins were trailing in the series (other then the game one Philly OT goal).

Should be interesting to see if they get "buried".

Yes until they have to face the big bad Bruins next round as long as NJ and NYR win their series.

Absurd that the pens have only trailed about 7 minutes in this series so far but are down 2-0 and feels like they've been dominated.

Do you mean in this series? Then I would say yes, as long as the Pens fail to play defense.

However I don't think they are going to keep it up when they meet up with team that actually has structured team defense and knows how to slow down players through the neutral zone.

They can, but I think Pittsburgh squashes them in game three.

I think that depends on Pitt just as much, if not more. It's not as if they have been playing terrific D and the Flyers have found a way to slice them up anyway. Pitt's D has been pretty atrocious and the Flyers have been smart enough to take advantage of that.

I think the answer to this question is going to be the opposite of the answer to the question of whether or not Pittsburgh can get their D and goalie on the same page.

It' not like Phi is playing perfect hockey or anything. Their defense and tending could be better. Of course they can keep this up.

Yeah I can't imagine the Flyers coming back against the Bruins...

After everything you have seen, do you truly believe this or are you hoping for it?
From what I have seen 95% of the game sin the playoffs have been pretty competitive. I think Pitt could definitely win, but it won't be a blow out.

It's happened before.

I'm not as afraid of Boston as I am NYR. Here's to hoping we move on, get Boston, NYR gets NJD and we play NJD in the ECF.

While they have led most of the series, they've only "won" 2 periods. Not sure what they can do, but pond hockey isn't working for them.

If the Flyers pull off this series I can see them going to the finals. They just seem to have it together and putting down a team like Pittsburgh could really give them the steam to go far.

I don't think it is ever a recipe for success to constantly have to chase the game. I would definitely prefer to see the Flyers score first.
