Quote:
April 8, 2004 -- In Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals, Robert Esche made 37 saves in his first NHL PO start and was chosen the number one star in the Flyers' 3-2 home win. Simon Gagne scored in the first period. Jeremy Roenick's 40th career PO goal, on the Flyers' lone power play of the game, made it 2-0 early in the second period. Roenick decided the day of this game to not wear a protective mask even though he suffered a broken jaw less than two months prior. "If it breaks, it breaks. There is nothing I can do about it," said JR when pressed. Keith Primeau was credited with the GWG 3:31 into the third period when Patrik Elias and Jan Hrdina scored in the next 57 seconds, 35 seconds apart, to make it 3-2 with 15:32 to go. Primeau (1-1-2) and Kim Johnsson (0-2-2) each had two points. NJ outshot Philly 39-26 including 11-6 in the third period. NJ was 0-for-4 on PPs.

FLYERS-DEVILS' 2011-12 SEASON SERIES:

Claude Giroux scored in the opening period then Matt Read and Wayne Simmons added early third period goals. The Flyers dominated the third period, 9-3 in shots and scored twice. The Flyers went 0-for-8 on PPs but were a perfect 5-for-5 on PKs. Simmonds beat David Clarkson in a fight ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oGBlXpfJmtQ ). Highlights -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QAlG3UXntqs

  • November 3, 2011 -- Patrik Elias and Zach Parise scored in the shootout (2-1) and Johan Hedberg made 20 saves in NJ's 4-3 win at Philly.

Zac Rinaldo's first NHL goal and Claude Giroux's score about six minutes later gave Philly a 2-0 lead 8:08 into the second period. Parise and Adam Henrique (1-1-2), his first NHL goal, tied it 11:57 into the second period. NJ held a 21-9 shots advantage in the second period and 39-23 in the game.

The Devils scored with under a second to play in the opening period to make it 3-0. The Devils scored four goals in a span of 2:34 to take a 5-0 lead. Johan Hedberg made 37 saves.

Sergei Bobrovsky made his first start since February 12 and stopped 27 shots. Highlights -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7eZ6ljqEDfA
  • March 13, 2012 -- Ilya Bryzgalov made 17 saves and extended his personal shutout streak to 196:13 in the Flyers' 3-0 home win. Bryzgalov's streak was third best in team history behind John Vanbiesbrouck's 227:40 (Oct. 17-26, 1999) and 218:42 (Jan. 3-16, 1999). Bryzgalov’s GAA in his last five games was 0.39 and his save percentage .986.

Defense is playing solid. Like how Lilja and Gustafsson are averaging around 15 mins, taking some minutes away from the other guys so they dont tire out (especially Timonen. Kimo looking real solid the other game but definitely getting tired alot easier). Keep it up.

Here's where JVR begins to climb the steps again. I also hope to see tons of hits, like the last round.

I'd like to see the flyers get a little more physical at the start. To get into the games early. Especially guys like Hartnell, Simmonds, and Schenn. Need to start punishing the smaller defenseman of the Devils so we can have them thinking twice and reacting faster then normal on our forecheck.

Yeah, if JVR could take off and take over that'd be neat. I'd like that.

Some mathematics have told me that Simon Gagne is the all-time leading goal scorer against Marty Brodeur with 19 goals. Second on the list is Jaromir Jagr at 17. While it would be great having Gagne back for this series , at least we've got the second best dose of poison for Fatso.

Safe to say I agree with everyone else. A win would be nifty.

Hope they have shaken off the rust and will take controll of this game from the beginning.

As always, Brodeur will somehow keep it tight.

JVR looked like he was out to prove the doubters wrong last game. Looked fast and confident. He'll get one tonight.

6-5 Flyers...Bryz is horrible again, Brodeur gets hurt from a defenseman pushing Simmonds into the net, Flyers give up leads of 3-0 and 5-3, Hartnell with a hattrick and Coburn with 2 goals

That sounds about right. Of course, Marty being injured puts Simmonds in the box for 5 which spurs the comeback from the 5-3 deficit. **** yeah. Flyers. Always entertaining!

I'm always amazed at how much offensive depth you guys have... But what's the deal with having Eric Wellwood on the 4th line over guys like Sesisto, Shelley or at the very least, Rinaldo?

Because Wellwood is a real hockey player and the other three aren't.

Also Sestito is still hurt i believe

And I don't think Rinaldo has seen ice time since game 4

Wellwood has super speed, smart defensively, and PK. (He lined up against Malkin all first round). All Rinaldo can do is hit and take penalties. Shelley can't even skate

Not sure how much of game 1 that you watched but Wellwoods speed led to two of the six Devils penalties in that game. That asset (speed) is why he gets the nod over the other players that you mentioned.

As others have said Wellwood has carved out a nice role for himself. He was on the shutdown line against the Pens and did it to perfection. This series it looks like they are putting him on the attack more and will use long stretch passes to force the devils defense speed. He's a rocket ship and is tenacious on the forecheck.

A perfect role player...kills penalties, good defensively, fastest guy on the team, works hard, young, cheap, with some decent offensive skills....I've quickly become a big fan of his and he won't be leaving the lineup anytime soon.
