Honestly I am just happy at the resiliency of the devils this game.

Whatever issues they've had in these playoffs, it's definitely not lack of heart or effort. These guys do try and they do fight. But this Flyer team is not a good matchup for them. Having said that, Bryz is definitely no sure thing in net...that Sykora goal was awful.

Kovy looks just lost out there, if your this hurt sit his ass already. Appreciate the effort but he is giving nothing along the boards and in the defensive end he can't get good push off.

Sit him for who? We've only got garbage waiting in the press box, that's why our fourth line stunk for most of the year. Plus he can still contribute offensively if you give him some space. It'd be nice if they could get him off the point, but other than Zidlicky (and he's already on the point) who else can really play there?

thats why the flyers arent going to play for the cup. its really a matter of the flyers scoring enough and forcing the other teams to match them.

3 Devs puck watching Biere

Clearing has been awful

Appears the Devs need to practice quick passing and hard puck handling

posts like this are amusing. they offer no insight whatsoever other then people who really cant see the forest for the trees and point fingers at others who are in tune to what they see and watch.

And vice versa. :rolleyes:

There are negative posts and then there are your posts. Why do you bother to watch our "inferior" team? Sheesh.

Kovy looking like he's becoming a liability out there injured. Sit him game 2.

With the way we have been doing in OT this year, I'm actually excited about at the Devs in OT. Years past it was a foregone conclusion that it was a big L

Scary to think what the Flyers could be if their goalie wasn't putting up an .870 save% or so in the playoffs thru this game.

The Devils actually have a chance to steal this game...hard to believe...

The fact we've been outshot 23-7 the last two periods and are still going to OT is insane. It's to the point where if we even win a few SHIFTS we could get one past Bryz, since we've basically had three real scoring chances the last forty minutes and two have wound up in the net.

Are you the lead cynic? Seems so.

seems that you need to go and point your fingers elsewhere and enjoy the rest of the game.

Under the circumstances and the way that this game evolved, I can't ask for more than this (a chance to win in OT). The Devils flat-out don't deserve to win this game. But the Flyers will walk away from this one thinking "Geez, if we just play the same way and get something resembling competent goaltending, we should win this series without too much trouble,"
