Laviolette has always been able to out-coach Bylsma. I hope Geno and Tanger are back but I hope they don't push it if they are not completely ready. Anyway, there is little reason not to win this game. Hope the bounces go well for the Pens. I think this game is as good as won. While the Flyers seem to have had the Pens number, I expect a Flyer loss in this one.
Hopefully the Pens can keep the streak going for at least two more games. After Philly, the Pens play Montreal on Tuesday and then Winnipeg on Thursday. The only team on that list I don't mind the Pens losing to is the Jets.
Yes the Flyers have always been a pain in the ass. I would think that by now the coaching staff would have figured out a way to beat those bums (did I mention I can't stand the Flyers?). I hate the Pens losing to those smug faced ********! I really have no explaination as to why the Pens have a hard time with them. Don't listen to Bylsma and go out there, do your thing and win. The Pens should be able to walk away from this game victorious given all. Bylsma is the problem with the difficulties this team has with the Flyers. Should be very clear by now. There really is no other explanation.

I of course want the Pens to win. Flyer fans having any joy at our expense is something I would hate to see any time.
Some silver linings if they do not though. I would love to see the Flyers miss the playoffs but as far from a top pick as possible. If they beat us this will make that possibility closer to a reality. I also am not a fan of these regular season streaks. They are fairly meaningless and I am far more excited about only 8 goals given up in the last 7 games. If the streak comes to an end but we continue to play tight defense and win the 2/3 of the games we play as we have done, not just this year but in the last few years, I will be happy. Screw the streak, I could care less about it.
