Shutout by these cats twice last year, i hope we don't suffer the same fate this season. i thik all we need to beat this team is 2 goals, i think our defence can hold them back for 3 periods. I say we reverse the roles tonight and shut them out for a change.
I'm calling it:
Wld played last night, ok it was aganst the SWB err the Pittsburgh Penguins. Wild had an easy time against an AHL defense. It will not be so easy for them this time against the Flyers looking to an extend the home unbeaten streak.
look for the Flyers to come right at them from the start. hit them at every opportunity and wear them down. Flyers should and will win
Flyers 4 (Gagne,Roenick,Amonte 2)
Wild 1 (Dupuis)
I dont think the Flyers need to be reminded what happened last year. Hopefully they will not be loking ahead to the Saturday showdown with Boston.
Not to mention, he & Lemaire haven't "kissed" & made up yet.
Oh, they're gettin' there:

No one is giving the Minnesota Wild any credit. On the heels of playing last night I think the Minnesota Wild are going to be a bit winded and the Flyers will win. I see a lot of 0's and 1's for the Minnesota Wild. I'll take a 4-3 win for the Flyers. Just because the Wild are trap-first or the Flyers are a stellar home team doesn't mean a while lot. To keep the Wild off the scoreboard, the Flyers will have to play mistake-free hockey. Minnesota will pounce on every opportunity they get.
