After failing to get a series split on the road, the Flyers look to win tonight as they return to the Wachovia Center for the first time since winning Game 4 against the Devils in the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals. Down in the series 2-0, they can not afford to drop one at home. Game 2 on Monday night was not a terrible effort from the Flyers, but the Bruins showed that they were that much better as they did in Game 1 and took a close game and won. The Flyers were a few plays away from winning both of those games, so we need to see if they can put it all together for tonight. They take both home games, the series is split 2-2 going back to Boston. Coming back from a 3-0 is going to be very tough against this team so don’t think for a second our guys are not going to come out tonight.
It’d be nice to see them score first and establish a lead. If we start getting pucks in deep with a lead and establish our forecheck, there’s not many teams who can come back and beat us. This is one of their last chance’s to find that spark they had in the first round, and the Orange Crush is sure to be rocking tonight to be the 7th man out there. Briere is back at winger to limit his defensive responsibilities which I think was a good move. Him and Richards continue to produce, but Giroux is going to have make a few more plays too. Also, it’d be nice to see James VanRiemsdyk to start producing offensively as well. The key to winning this series is the same as it was the first two games, they just need to execute.
