Flyers Advance To The Eastern Conference Finals!!!!!!!!!
The Flyers Blew Away the Top seed Canadiens 4 Games to 1.
It really could have been a sweep, but they were robbed by a bad penalty call that led to the tieing goal.
The Flyers led each of the 1st 4 games 2-0 -
lost the 1st game, but held on to win games 2,3 and 4.
Game 5 The Canadiens led the game 3-1 in the 2nd period,
but the Flyers stormed back to win the game 6-4.
RJ Umburger was the star - scoring 2 goals on his Birthday -
and now has scored 9 in the playoffs.
The stars of the playoffs have been Marty Biron and Danny Briere.
Marty is giving his best Bernie Parent impression ,
making amazing saves and stopping everything he can see.
After a sub par regular season Briere has stormed back in the playoffs with 7 goals, 3 of them game winners-
and now is going to the Easter Cinference Finals for the 3rd straight time - the last 2 with the Sabres and now with the Flyers.
I really had a good feeling about these playoffs -
it was really teed up for the Flyers -
No New Jersey, Tampa Bay, Ottawa, Sabres or Carolina to deal with - teams the Flyers have had trouble with in the playoffs -
instead the had The Caps and the Canadiens -
2 teams they have a history of playing well against -
now they face either the Penguins and Sidney Crybaby or the Rangers and Jagr - to more teams they play well against.
I really like the odds of the Flyers advancing to the Stanley Cup Finals!
Lets Go Flyers!
