This is the make or break weekend for the Flyers. They have been playing poorly over the last two weeks and to make matters worse they see Tampa and Montreal (twice) on their schedule. These two teams along with New Jersey have been the thorns to the Flyers for a few years. So they promptly lost to Tampa and now have home and home versus Montreal.
This is the time for this team to settle down and play the tight defense and let our forwards be opportunistic. The next two games will go a long way to deciding how the trading deadline is handled by Holmgren. If they lose both, you might see him more cautious and patient, win both maybe more agressive, split and he is really rolling the dice.
It will be interesting over the next two weeks! And this is why I love this time of year so much!
