The Flyers sweep the Devils in a home and home? When was the last time that happened? I bet it was back when the Devils were still a "Mickey Mouse" team. Funny that team we could never beat with the goalie that owns the Flyers, gets beat by a team that hasn't won a game all year. Marty Brodeur never loses to the Flyers until this year, what changed? His mask has changed. From always being a team guy with the NJD logo on his mask to his initials. So Marty first loses.
Anyway back to real hockey. The Flyers are winning because they are playing with passion. The really good news is that the opening run of games against the best teams in the league is over. This means that the Flyers have a soft spot in the schedule sometime soon. From a hockey point of view, the passion equates to forwards backchecking, defensemen clearing the crease, and goaltending that makes key saves. It really is that simple.
