"All Geeked-Up for the Deadline..."
Newtown Square, PA • United States • 45 Years Old • Male
Just a quickie - More to come later tonight...

* Two consecutive shutouts against teams - Devils and Pens - few thought we could even beat - let alone hold scoreless!

* Timely scoring from all lines. 7 players with 20 or more goals - only team in the NHL to do so.

* Marty Biron just coming up HUGE! He threw the team on his back and * brought them to the 6th seed. He is, without a doubt, the player of the week. Ride that hot goaltender!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

* Great TEAM defense - forwards backchecking, positional play much improved and keeping teams to the outside.

* Richards & Carter
- their play has been outstanding, especially in light of Briere's absence.

* Penalty Kill
- was amazing!!!! If they can keep shots to the outside and clog the passing lanes, Mike Richards then can play the kill at his evil best. He is a force out there.

* Nashville Transplants - Upshall, Hartnell and Timonen have been hugely responsible for the Flyers' mini-run. Upshall showing grit, emotion and a nice goal vs Pens, Harts has been a maniac around the net and in the crease, banging bodies and playing with Heart, Timonen is the leader of the defense and has been instrumental in mentoring the rookie stud, Braydon Coburn.

* Refuse to lose - this team from 1st through 4th lines have just refused to be beaten. Every shift was played like it was monumentally important - and it was.

- Alex Ovechkin might just be the most electrifying player in the league. The Orange and Black will have their hands full, no doubt, but right now they just seem poised and ready to grab for that brass ring.


I cannot wait until Wednesday - I think I am in a lather. Wait...yep. I had better towel off...more later folks.

Thanks for reading...

I'll say this, even tho the B's had an oh-fer against the Habs this season, I'd rather play MTL than the Caps. Anyway, the dream conference finals match-up lives!! Go Flyers!!!

It's going to be a great series. All right, I've committed and have formally adopted the Flyers as my Eastern Conference team (unless your run ends or when you meet the West...), so Go Flyers!

Thanks Tim. Hell, you HAVE to root for us - we have half of your team!! Love how the boys played this week and it was great to see Scottie Upshall have a meaningful goal and a nice hit on Hall Gill. Go Preds! SYF

It is great that Holmgren was able to rebuild the team so quickly. If you think about the rollercoaster ride over the last 3 seasons it is amazing. The youth is strong and unlike the teams of the late 90s and early 2000s, this team is balanced. Only team in the league to sport 3 centers that have more than 25 goals each. That is why this team might make a deep run this year. GO FLYERS!
