+ Chris Kunitz. This guy is an absolute beast
+ Tomas Vokoun. Coming in after an awful first period and standing tall
+ Sidney Crosby. This is just Sid being Sid tonight. Shutting flyers fans up early in the 3rd
+++++++ Keeping our nose to the grindstone and finishing this game off with a mass amount of character
That D in third looking the best I've seen it at times. Forwards were pressuring like crazy!
The first period is what the playoffs were last year. The second and third were the periods that we want to see them play against this team. Blocking shots and getting in to the shooting lanes, smart plays with the puck, hustling on the back check, and for the most part played with discipline.
Why is Despres not playing? What does he have to do to stay in the lineup? Score a Bobby Orr goal every game apparently.
+Neal, because i think he turned the Flyers trolling around on them. They love to pick on the guy. He started getting under their skin a bit this round. Running the goalie, taking dives... its a strange side of Neal to see.
+ 3rd Period WALKING AWAY. We walked away from scrums and did our thing. It worked. Philly sucked.
Amen. And they did it the whole way in the season-opener, too. They're perfectly capable of it, which is why it's so, so frustrating when they act like spoiled brats on the ice like in that first period.
