The guy has 0 goals in 64 NHL games. He's like Clarkson if you removed the goal-scoring talent and added more falling down. The 4th line will get annihilated tonight, it's just a question of whether Brodeur can make the stops.
This means he is due for a hattrick

What is it about Sestito that infatuates Lou, I will never know. I would rather see Zharkov up and playing instead of him, but it looks like the lineup will have Harrold on wing and Larsson on D so we might not have to worry about it.
Hopefully they can grit out a win tonight. I personally don't think we'll see Kovy play before game 4 at the earliest, as it would give him another 5 days to rest. Tonight is a must win, and Marty needs to stand on his head to get it.

Man, I feel so bad for Kovy. The guy has a genuine desire to just win, would do whatever it takes. And he is hurt in his first-time second round action. It must be killing him that he can't play. Get better soon Ilya...
I agree 110% this guy will do anything to win and now he has to sit this must be killing him. Get better soon come back strong and kick some Philthy ass Kovy!!! LGD!!!!!

i wouldn't worry too much, i think we will see him back on sunday.
Only if we're down 3-0 by then. At this point now that he's out of the lineup, he'll be out a 'while' I think, at least until our next elimination game.

-NHL record for most home wins in the playoffs - 12-1 in '03

Trying to be positive, he added nothing to us in game one and was very shaky on a couple of the Flyers goals. By that thinking, its a net gain.
True. But not having him on the PP definitely hurts as, even though he wasn't playing well, the Flyers always had a player up on the point to prevent him from gettng off his shot during game 1. With how weak shooting our D are, not having him there to open passing lanes will allow them to collapse the box and force everything to come from the outside. However, it's not like we can pass the puck on a PP anyway, so maybe you're right after all.
BTW...love the "Defend Jersey" thing. They should put that on a T shirt and/or towel and give those out at Game 3.

Harrold on wing.

Lou confirmed it was a "day-to-day lower-body injury".
This reminds me of earlier this season. DeBo said someone was out with an upper-body injury. Lou said it was lower-body. When asked about the discrepancy, DeBo said it's a middle-body injury.
