It wont matter, we still have Mottau and Zajac on the team, with JL behind the bench.

Carter is supposedly out for the season. Well, the Caps can thank Pronger for finishing him off.

Gagne 3 weeks, Carter season. Hopefully this is a light confidence boost for the team. Can't hurt.

I think this is definitely to our advantage.

not really, if neither played in any of the four games, the series would still be the same. it makes them thinner, but they're not the problem. Pronger is the problem, and their grinders are the problem.

In addition, the Flyers already have one 3-1 series that they screwed up royally to this very same team.


Really? This Devils team was the 2000 roster?

Really? Because Carter definitely made quite a difference last night.

Don't try to be smart, you know I meant this team, as in the New Jersey Devils.

you remove him from the game and the Devils still lose. the second goal came on a 5 on 3 when the game was over. anyone could have scored that and would have.

and Gagne... it was a great save, but that was Madden on Weekes, in OT-level bad shot placement

I think you're not giving enough credit to carter. The kid was really starting to come alive in game 3 and he had improved greatly since the first game. Gagne I agree isn't crushing for Philly.

At the very least it may just give the Devils some belief that Philly is cracking just a little bit. I mean everything that ccould have gone wrong so far this series has gone wrong. At this point I'll take whatever the hell we can get to be honest. No mater which way you slice it they're a little bit more worse then they were yesterday.

everybody came alive in game 3. we were motionless for the better part of the last 43 minutes of the game.

it's nice, it thins them out, but still, Pronger is going to bitch our forwards, some scrub like Asham will find a way to storm up the ice and beat Marty, and Boucher will stand there and do nothing except cover deflected pucks and stop 95% of what comes at him from 60 feet.... still looking shaky and looking behind himself after every one.

What's wrong with Zajac? He's the best center on the team.

Good point about everyone coming alive. I don't know, I was just waiting for Carter to bury one. You could just feel that it was coming.

Ugh and please don't get me started about Boucher. I guess he has done a decent enough job but you could't be more accurate about him.

All I know is that we are due for a big game against them. Law of averages says so damn it! You would have to think that in 11 games there would be at least one that goes your damn way from start to finish and maybe Philly doesn't bring their best game.

Everyone keeps talking about Pronger and the Flyers forecheck. I remember a few years back when we had a series against Tampa Bay and Lecavalier and St Louis, and these two guys were killing us in the first few games. However, as the series went on they became more and more of a non-factor because the team adapted to deal with them and minimize their impact.

The point is that, yes, Pronger and their forecheck has been choking us in this series. However, it's been 4 games already. I'm sure they are watching videos of what's happening and trying to adapt to it. Just because these two aspects of the Flyers game have been so successful the first 4 games doesn't mean they will be for the last 3 (if it goes that far). Lets show SOME faith in the coaching, and hope that they can work around these two issues. If we can beat Pronger and their forecheck, paired with the loss of Carter and Gagne, and the Flyers don't have much left to them.
