...when you riot and burn cars after winning in the FIRST ROUND.

Let's go Flyers.

Looking forward to a great series against the Pens.

Depends on your point of view I guess.  Wink

It's the simplest formula in sports; the team with the better goaltending wins. Price just wasn't ready for prime time.

Exactly.  And I wonder if there wasn't and injury or something with his glove hand.  The Habs insisted there was no injury, but it just wasn't right. 

A couple of notes:

The Flyers have the reputation of being a physical tean, but they're more disciplined (other than Hatcher) and a faster skating team than most give them credit for.

And Montreal is known for its team speed and finesse, but they're a more physical team than most give them credit for.

Also, in the Eastern Conference, there seems to be a lot of parity and the for the most part, the teams that made the playoffs are pretty close.

I agree with all of the above. Price's glovehand didn't seem right. Although on a few occasions he even seemed to whiff on the puck with his glove, so it may have been more than just a hurting hand.

The point standings bear that out the parity with only 10 points separating the 1 seed from the 8 seed. Further, the Flyers had a somewhat anomalous ten game losing streak in February. No excuses, they just sucked badly, but other than that stretch they played as well as anyone else in the conference during the balance of the season.

I've been impressed with the Flyers. They've played better than I expected. For a young team they show a lot of composure, both in their ability to right the ship after dropping ten straight (something that would make a lot of young teams pack up and mail it in), and their ability to stay on point even when they're getting out shot and in many cases out-skated. However, it's a bit easier to accomplish that when your goaltender doesn't let in too many soft ones, and bails you out with some great saves...and the other goalie is letting a lot of slop lay around for some junk goals.

It's been a fun ride. A series against the Pens will be tough for both teams.
