All I have to say is that if the Flyers can win 4 games in a row .. we can too!

I say don't hold your breath. Let's face it, when this team isn't winning Cups, they aren't doing anything...at all. And seeing how they've only won 4 in the last 81 years...it sort of paints the picture. As I said, I don't see why this season will be any different.

We'll see Shadow....

I ain't holding my breath but do know that Jagr and Lundqvist are capable - whether they come through or not is another story.

The Flyers earned every part of this series win...that was quite impressive.

However, the Habs pathetic goaltending didn't exactly hurt. I'm convinced if the Rangers played them, that would have been us winning in Montreal tonight.

But that's a moot point now. Congrats Philly, now let's make some history.

There have been a lot of capable players on this team throughout the years, Fletch. Yet the results remain the same.

The 6th seed is the money seed...you face the weakest division winner, which most likely wouldn't have made the playoffs otherwise....

They play the Caps, then a 20 year goalie who cant play during 5 on 5 in his zone; he let at least 10 bad goals in this series.

Easy ride for the Flyers so far. So pissed.

I disagree.

They should reconsider the 3 div winners getting the top 3 seeds. They should take their place in the top 8 based off points. If you win the div, yes u r guaranteed a playoff spot, but you should be seeded based of your total points.

I don't know. The Pens are playing much better as a team right now than Montreal ever did in both these two series's. Montreal almost lost to Boston, a team they beat up the whole season quite handily. That series probably shouldn't have gone past game 5

I don't see the Flyers getting past the Pens if the Pens advance. Maybe they will, but I doubt it. A lot of things will have to go their way

The flyers are on fire, Umberger is on a hot streak of epic preportions.

I'm not sure I would read too much into the 4-1 win. I think the Flyers was just about the worst possible matchup for Montreal. Philadelphia is one of the "toughest" teams in the Eastern Conference and Montreal is one of the "softest."

The Flyers controlled the area in front of Price and the Habs couldn't do much about it. At the other end, Montreal couldn't generate any traffic in front of Biron, so he got clean looks at almost every shot. Because Montreal played around the perimeter with little or no traffic (at least until late game4 and game5), Philly was the first to most rebounds and thus able to prevent most second-chance scoring opportunities on Biron.

The Penguins and Rangers may not be as physical as the Flyers, but they are not a 'soft' team like Montreal. They will fight hard for position in front of Biron, and they will fight hard to keep Philadelphia away from Lundqvist and Fleury.

Couldn't disagree more. If you asked any Flyers fan before the playoffs started, which is the last team you want to face, it would have been the Canadiens. They had beaten us all 4 in the regular season, and their speed at forward and their PP gave us more trouble than anyone in the league.

Hatcher emphasizes the fact.

Hatcher is as tough as they come, the guy rebounded from a couple of bad years, he apperciates the game of hockey & everything that comes with it. Playing with a bad knee & busted ankle is remarkable.

i'm so jealous flyers got to play against Price... who plays a 20 year old goalie in the playoffs. You have to have one hell of a defense to have the balls to do that. That could have been Jagr lighting up the Price is Wrong...

KenAF...

I think that in the last 5 games the Flyers would've been the worst possible matchup for most any team other than the Red Wings. It's not just them being physical. Goaltending was pretty solid and those forwards are skilled and can skate. it wasn't fun to watch.
