When you've never changed your passion for glory, you can go back to the well as many damn times as you please.

howardeskin: just to make it clear. Said Bryz has sore hip, which I stand by. also a game time decision. That doesn't say he's out, it says its sore
Let's be honest, sore or injured - the hip area is not a good one for goalies to have problems with. lovely. injured goalie, no Grossmann. good times

What's the situation on JVR? Game time decision? Odd that he didn't practice.

Randy Miller says JVR in lineup = very, very unlikely.

I am pumped for the game but then again I remember having a goalie with two bad hips and an eerily similar D in front of him (Hatcher/Rathje = Lilja/Kubina)?

Poor Nitty...got thrown under the bus that season playing behind the 30th ranked D

For ****s sake Get Rinaldo the **** out of the line up if this is the case, his 5 mins of icetime and 4pims per game can **** off.

puttng JVR in will give the impression they are desperate or he is needed for the win
he won't be in for this series (since it will end tonight)



i have to agree that having jvr over rinaldo would be better
as soon as rindaldo steps on the ice, he may as well just make his way over to the penalty box
he'll get a unsportmanlike penalty for just looking at a penguin the wrong way after last game antics he pulled

So, I'm guessing Giroux is going to get the Crosby treatment at tonight's game:

Quote:
PITTSBURGH -- Flyers center Claude Giroux wants to thank the Penguins' fans for helping to motivate him before and during games at Consol Energy Center.

"We don't really like the fans here and it's like we have something to prove to the fans that we're better than them," Giroux said Friday prior to Game 5 against the Penguins. "I remember last game there was actually two fans on the glass there and the whole game we were looking at each other. It gets me going a little bit. I would like to thank those two fans for sure. I didn't know what they were saying; it was just yelling and making signs with their hands that I can't really say on TV. It got me going a little bit."

Odds are those fans, or at least more than 18,300 like them, will be yelling and screaming at Giroux and the Flyers again in Game 5 Friday (7:30 p.m. ET, NBCSN, TSN, RDS). But, considering the Flyers' history in this new building, maybe a tactical change is in order.

The Flyers are 7-1 at Consol Energy Center since it opened last season. They have won every meaningful game in the Penguins' new home arena, including the first two of this playoff series. Their only loss came on the last day of the regular season, when neither team had anything to play for as their playoff seeds were already set
I wonder who these two guys are.

IF JVR doesnt go tonight would anyone think it would be a good idea to dress 7 D?

We know Gus is in but I say dress Manning over Rinaldo. Use Manning on the 4th O line *if need be*. There are plenty of guys we could double shift on the 4th line.

This way if we can tell early that Gus can't handle it back on D we could try Manning

Bang on. Having Rinaldo in the lineup guarantees the Pens two or three power plays based on reputation alone. Given how terrifying our D looks on paper without Grossmann tonight, dressing Manning as the 7th strikes me as a necessity.

I guess "Being out of bubble gum" for luck doesnt work anymore (considering it brought 10 GA on wed), so I'll just say GO FLYERS GO! FINISH THESE CLOWNS! ... Hmm /caps lock

I'll probably be able to watch only the 1st. hope it's gonna be an awesome example of trolling the CEC once again

I'm an idiot and I shaved my playoff beard after game three because I had an interview. Then game 4 happened.

If the fans had a brain cell amongst all of them they'd go after Bryz, not Roo.

Just read Pits GDT One of them said I wouldn't care if we lose next round, as long as we can come back vs Flyers. Those bandwagon ****s blow my mind !! Cup means nothing to the new age fans

The last game in Wpg when the morons started the Flyers Suck chant, you could tell it bothered the team and they kicked it up 5 gears. Roo will be a beast tonight, just hope Bryz plays his best game ever .

If they had a brain cell amongst them, they wouldn't be Pens fans...

Rinaldo was pure garbage. Refs didn't allow him anything . Any big, fast skating body over him is a huge plus.
