Looking ahead for the rest of the month, the Flyers will play 7 games against non-playoff teams, with the Panthers being their toughest test (they are playing well as of late). In all honesty this is the right time for the team to take advantage. After the next seven we run a home-and-home with the bruins, which should be very exciting. Should the flyers string together these wins, we may be in good position to take over first, or at least keep the Bruins looking over their shoulder.
On a side note, I'd like to poke fun at the fact that the Panthers are ahead of the Penguins. How did they think loosing character guys like Recchi Roberts Malone and Armstrong wouldnt hurt them. Not to mention Gonchar and Whitney's Injury trouble.
Please win on tuesday. Remember game 5 of the ECF last year, that's all I have to say.
