Yerpp, especially if the Devils have a chance to face either team in the next round

Washington beats Boston. Sens beat Rangers. We beat Panthers. We face Capitals :ph34r:

Pens are losing it...having your season slip away like that will do that to you. The Asham crosscheck was dirty BUT I'd rather him do that than do nothing. If you're not going to win...at least fvck the other team up.

If he did it to Rinaldo that would be one thing. Maybe the Flyers will hold back on retaliation because it's the playoffs and it looks like they'll be in the next round. If this is the regular season though, it's crap like what Asham did that give skilled players on his own team a giant target on their heads.

Example, if I were on the Flyers I would have been absolutely livid with Rinaldo's slew foot on Parise. Not so much because it was a dirty play, but it resulted in a young skilled player getting his ass kicked. To add insult to injury, Rinaldo punked out when Kovy challenged him and left the fighting to an undersized teenager.

Same reason why the rest of the Rags hated Avery. For as much as he was effective against the opposition, he put his teammates in a vulnerable position.

If caps and Sens upset both Rags and bruins. The Sens might have a chance to beat the Flyers because Ottawa has been beaten them in the post couple post-season.

I equally hate both teams too. That being said, i'm rooting for whatever makes this series last longer and for more games like todays. Let them kill each other in long hard fought games right till the end. Which ever one gets through should be primed for a 2nd round loss.

I just hope they beat each other to a bloody pulp then it won't matter who wins. I am rooting for neither. lol

This series is high scoring, no defense and lots of fisticuffs. Love listening to Doc call the game.

Fleury may suck, but no one can deny that Bryz is definitely a fail signing on Philly's behalf if this is how he's gonna play. The whole point for them was better playoff goaltending and they believed to get it meant signing an established good goaltender to a big contract.

Fleury has given up 17 goals in 3 games. I really don't wanna hear how great the Flyers are. That's the only thing you need to know.

If we beat Florida, we'd have our hands full with either team. I don't EVER root for the Flyers in a playoff series, unless they're playing the Rangers. And even then, whoever wins, I'd be pissed.

Agreed...but I'd rather this go 7 than 4. Especially if the road team keeps winning and sends both these fanbases home miserable. Unfortunately, Fleury looks worse than Goldberg in net.

IMO I would have kept Goldberg in net and not put Cat in, in the Goodwill Games. whistling.gif

Of course, I want it to go 7 as well. But the way Fleury is playing, Pittsburgh might want to think about just forfeting game 4. :P

So who had Claude Grioux with a Gordy Howe hatty?

Forget it. This is Bylsma's fault. He should have pulled Fleury when it was 3-1.
