I don't know what to expect from Akeson, but it would be cool if either he or Raffl are the '10 playoffs Ville Leino of this team

I don't get the point of throwing Rinaldo out there against the Rangers in a playoff game? If it was the Pens I would but the Rangers don't fall for his **** so he's rather useless. I rather have McGinn in over him because unlike Rinaldo he can actually finish a scoring chance here & there.

I would start Emery is Mason isn't 100%. His long term health is more important than the first game of this series.

They HAVE to have Rinaldo in there to accomplish a key goal of game 1: hammer the crap out of McDonagh's sore, sprained (separated?) and as yet untested shoulder again and again and again.

McGinn isn't passive plus we still have Schenn, Hartnell, Simmonds etc. who don't shy away from throwing the body.

We're going to need all the offense we can get going up against that defense & Hank. While McGinn isn't exactly a Wayne Simmonds he can't at least bang home a garbage goal here & there which is way more than you can say about Rinaldo who literally has no pulse offensively.

And Rinaldo will be all fired up after his time off...

Carcillo will be happy to take advantage.

I have to say as excited as I am about the playoffs I'm pretty nervous about playing the Rangers. The last few years the Flyers have been pretty bad against the them (I think I heard they've lost 11 strait at MSG today). Of all the Eastern conference teams the only team I wanted the Flyers to play even less than the Rangers is the Bruins. Of course these stretches of playing bad against a particular team have to end at some point and this seems like just as go a time as any to.

Well I dont really care right now that Rinaldo is playing since Akeson is playing, but there is very little chance he is ever out there when McDonald is out there. I guess he can try to hit Carcillo and they can both go and get angry at eachother.

He may be able to draw (or take) some penalties on Carcillo.

What about the Lightning? They beat us handily three times this season. At least against the Rangers we won two games at home.

It's not like we have a dainty team. Everyone should be hitting the whole game and the whole series. Doesn't matter if McDonough was hurt or not he is the biggest player for them that we can get to so we have to get to him.

I think it will be similar to when we went after green and the caps. By the second period of game one we owned him. Mcd will be a lot different result but we are looking for a little less out of him so we can win this series.

Either way if he is pinned to G then couts schenn raffl read simmer and to a lesser extent akeson are expected to produce. There is no other way. I can't believe tomorrow is still only Wednesday!!

It is a day-to-day approach. He will be reevaluated tomorrow and hopefully practice. The term concussion has not been verified or used, rather "whiplash" is the most often attached word. The next update will be tomorrow.

Whiplash is the word you use when you don't want to admit that it's a concussion

A certain defenseman need to step up if we want to win this series. I'm looking for angry playoff Coburn. Not the passive aggressive regular season Coburn.

I'm willing to bet those two spend almost no time on the ice together. They're going to want McDonagh facing good players, not Rinaldo.

Rinaldo is fine in a 7 game series if he can help along with the team with physicality and a tenacious forecheck. You have to wear the opposing teams defenseman down. If he can play a controlled game and just agitate with his hard work he will be fine. Stay out of the post whistle stuff. Let them react towards you. Only time it will be necassary is when a teammate is getting mugged.

Of course the chances of him doing that will be a slim margin. If he fails to not take selfish penalties Berube will have no choice but to lose confidence in Rinaldo. He needs to mature and get his emotions in check because he will not be in the league for long if he continues down this path.

Rinaldo is averaging a goal per game in his last game played.

Hey guys, After debating the rangers, ducks, and Flyers for this post season, I think i made the right choice . I'm really looking forward to watching Couturier, Voracek, and my hometown boy Giroux battle it out.

btw, whos the starter? i heard mason was injured or something.
