Someone seems a little bitter. But it's like Keith Jones said on the Flyers post game show... Roy knew he's have to end up fighting Brashear on the next shift, so rather than take on a real combatant 1 on 1, he chickened out, jumped in as a third man and got himself kicked out... Sort of like Domi did in the Leafs series... I don't blame them either, I wouldn't want to get beat down by Brashear either

LOL LOL LOL LOL Brashear was scared like crap so he didnt dare fighting instead he goes on headhunting on Taylor, Yup thats a classic. Fight instead of being busy headhunting. But that might not be part of Brashears job describtion. If you think Roy is scared of Brashear you need to see who refused to fight and instead went on a headhunting spree.

Until he actually shows he can do it. it is just words my friend just words

Call the goalie running and you solve a lot of problem. If you dont call it expect the goalie to slash back. HE SHOULD slash back

I guess you didn't actually watch the game, but here's what happened on that play......your D man (didn't see the #) cross-checked Amonte in the back of the head and Amonte half-fell and brushed Grahame. He didn't see that Amonte was cross-checked and reacted with the Hextall-like chop.

So it's more like, don't cross-check our guys into your own goalie, and we won't brush him, eh?

AWESOME game last night! It was great to see Johnny not only get a goal, but was getting/setting up other chances as well. He was once again a factor, and I hope his confidence is back to build upon. I guess he read these boards before the game.

Sami Kaps with one of the sweetest moves in the playoffs on his shorty. The guy just keeps amazing everyone with his play, and does whatever is asked of him.

I would have liked to see the Flyers go back into attack mode offensively with the two 5-on-3s down the stretch, even with the 6-0 lead. They seemed all too happy to just play it safe and kill the time off the clock. A few more goals would have made the Bolts pay for all the cheap crap.

Game 3, it will be imperative to come out the same way and get a quick one early. That will get Khabi off his game and get the rest of TB thinking "Uh oh, here we go again".

I think that the NHL has gotten so pathetic regarding goalies. If they get brushed at all, it's a penalty, but if they decided to chop at people's knees, it's called "protecting themselves" even though they are the most heavily padded players on the ice.

The other reason they can do this is because they know that they can slash and chop all they want and they will never have to fight someone from the opposing team. Esche got run over quite a few times in the Toronto series, but he didn't complain and whine about it and that's why the Flyers weren't getting the calls. I wouldn't mind making the goalie fair game for a hit when they come out of their net just to teach them some respect and to stop all this chopping and slashing.

Sami Kapanen is absolutely irreplaceable. Trading for him was one of the best moves Clarke has made in a long time.

He's a keeper.

Last night's game was a thing of beauty. The Flyers just needed to sure up the defense and they did just that. Tampa had a hard time trying even to get the puck through the neutral zone. There were a few failed clears but not as many as there was in Game 1. They played solid last night. They used their physical presence to their advantage. They know that TB loves to drop down in front of Nik and that means the guys at the points will be open for the shot like Vlad was. Then if TB starts to come out to play the point, it's going to create more room in front of Nik. Sami played awesome, Recchi played great, Timander had a good game, everyone just had a great game. Refs let another game get out of control. Someone in the NHL offices needs to get these dunces out of there. They ruin a game with the way they ref.

Oh, good job by Chico. Solid as a rock last night. One former Phoenix goalie beat another former Phoenix goalie. Lot of ex-Coyotes out there.

Good job boys, keep it going on Thursday, 3 wins to go.

I really dont think you know what headhunting is. Tucker is a headhunter, Stevens is a headhunter. Name me one player Brashear has injured on purpose this year. Name one hit where there was intent to injure in the last game.

I suggest you keep your mouth shut for you own reputation.

Not true. They crushed Toronto 7-2 in game 5 and went on to win Game 6. Nevermind. They did blow a two goal lead in series clinching game.

Esche made one of the biggest plays of the game IMO. when it was 1-0, LeCalvier and St. Louis broke in on a 2-1 with St. Louis getting a great scoring opportunity and Esche stoned him.
it was a big save to preserve the Flyers lead.

All things considered, i think we've been the better team in this series so far. Game 1 could have easily been ours if we converted our chances in the first half of the game. Suddenly Tampa looks a lot slower than we were proclaimed to be.

Agreed. The first half of game 1 was dominated by the flyers but they didn't capitalize and then Johnson's clearing attempt hits a ref bounces to a Bolt and they convert. Both teams ended with nearly the same amount of shots and chances but the flyers didn't capitalize and lost the momentum as a result. They did not make the same mistake in game 2. They converted on the 1st couple chances and kept the pedal to the metal till the middle of the 3rd. I was suprised how little the Bolts showed last night. They have no phsyical presence whatsoever. They like to skate and not be touched.

If you think Brashear is such a head hunter, can you name any players he has injured with a dirty hit? I'm not saying he hasnt ever in his career (so keep out of this Vancouver and Montreal fans), but just that you, as an example of a knowlegable Tampa fan, have no idea what you are talking about.

He's beat the crap out of your tough guy Roy about 8 times in his career. Tampa had their ***** handed to them, Brash had nothing to prove. And he didn't head hunt, Taylor took a run at him high, Brashear was defending himself.

Amonte never would have touched your pink skirted princess if he wasn't pushed by Tampa's D-man... in my opinion, when you're pushed into the goalie that's when you take liberties and blast them right in the spine with a nasty elbow. Seriously, blame Amonte for being pushed Someone can't handle a loss

stevens never missed a chance to put his shoulder right into someones head, the hit may be clean, but the contact to the head was always dangerous. i would admit that there is some poetic justice that stevens career may be over due to a concussion, when he's caused a good few of them in his lifetime. but to be fair to stevens, who wouldn't have wanted him on their team?

Roy is a dirty puke, he won't fight anyone, he's scared so he has to pull this 3rd man in crap.

I gained a lot of respect for Donald, he kept the intensity up all game.

Pushed or not have no relevance according to a memo out of Toronto earlier in this playoff year learn what is being sent out to the refs and you might understand what goes on
