Sometimes fans are more nervous than the athletes.... I just hope the players keep a cool head tonight

Finish this tonight, and we can all enjoy a great week-end. Time for March Bryz to show up and play the best game of his Flyers career. Roo and Harts need to be beasts and Super Danny needs to make an appearance.

GO FLYERS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Anyone else for putting Talbot on D and rolling with 13 forwards? Or calling up Sami Kapanen?

Meltzer reporting that Gus is in for Gross, but that things could change.



I think I'd rather throw manning into the fire than Gus.

Apparently, according to Bill Meltzer (and I apologize if this is on the first page):

Refs tonight: Paul Devorski and Dan O'Rourke


Is this good or bad?

I am guessing it can't be worse than last game

IMO, not awful.

No.

Say Coburn or Timonen take a minor penalty.

Now what?

I think it makes more sense to dress 7 defenseman than 13 forwards.

The real question is the pairings. Timonen and Coburn are our only reliably useful defenseman. Carle can be ok, but needs to be paired with someone who can pick up at least 55% of the burden.

I almost think you have to construct pairings based on a combination of size and speed to protect against matchups on the road:

Timonen-Coburn (eat your Wheaties, boys; it'll be a long night).
Carle-Kubina
Gus-Lila

No idea on the last two--I hate Kubina playing the extra minutes, but putting him with Gus seems a recipe for disaster.

Honestly. Forwards need to back-check like they haven't all series, or this could be a train wreck.

Get out of this game with a W, and you buy perhaps a week for Mez and Grossman to get right. Lose, and we have a game 6 where things are likely to be just as dicey.

EDIT: I see Meltzer has Gus-Carle and Lilja-Kubina. I'm not sure. On the road? Malkin's size against Gus-Carle is a disaster; Crosby-Dupuis's speed against Kubina-Lilja is a disaster.

...someone make me feel better about this?

Kubina's better when he's mad. I hope he's still pissed from Wednesday.

I'd rather have Timonen with Carle and Coburn with Kubina, and not have anyone else play unless absolutely necessary.

Get the first goal and go all Tampa Bay on them.

Also, I was joking about Talbot.

EDIT: New plan. Shoot the puck at the Pen's faces. We need to level the playing field.

Our team should be physically dominating these guys on paper. Look at the size of our forwards and the size of theirs. They only have 3 over 6''0, Malkin, Neal, and Staal. He need to really start using that size to our advantage.

"Maintenance" day seems a bit odd, but I don't remember him picking up anything during the previous game.

Thankfully Pannacio just said it's an optional skate, so that could be a reason
