At this point the Ranger'll win the Cup based on Hank's play alone.

God I hope not...I can't bear the Ranger's winning the cup and listening to my cousins with their annoying New York accents gloat....ugh!

If we do meet them ..Bryzgalov has to be equal to the task which I have my concerns about. King Henry is good for 2 to 3 wins on his own.....

If the Flyers play THIS style instead trying to outdefense the Rangers, they might have a shot.

Hell, it's worth a shot.

Nothing else has worked, I'd be up for anything.

It's possible but it is very rare to see any goalie dominant 4 series in a row. If the Rangers don't tighten up a bit in front of him it will cost them eventually.

Penguins owned the Rangers because they refused to play the Rangers defense first style, and the Rangers couldn't score enough to win. I think the Flyers could do the same, particularly if they sweep the Pens can go in confident that they can win this way.

Really. My only concern is getting that 4th win. I will worry about the other later.

I agree......even though Ottawa is giving them all they want.Ottawa could very easily be up in this series in my opinion.They have really dominated large portions of these games thus far....If not for Hendrik the Rags would be in trouble ?

We're not favourites with this defense and goaltending. If Mesz were to come back for Rd 2 , maybe.

Bryz has to be sharp for this to work.

No.Our defense has been terrible.Bryz has been bad too.We're not advancing unless we plug some holes.We've just been lucky that the pens have sucked worse.12 goals in 3 games.We're not going to score 20 in the next 3.Think of it that way.

Too true. What we did to Boston could easily be done to us without focus... However, I'm sure the players themselves are not getting ahead of themselves, so I'm sure all will be well...
