Look at the guy in the background, his expression is like, "oh no jaromir is ready to eat someone's face off again"

Biron has the highest goals per game out of the remaining goalies in the playoffs. If it weren't for multiple shots off the posts then it would be even be higher and they might not even be in the playoffs.

Don't get me wrong, he made some really terrific saves, but for the most part a lot of shots hit off the post and the Habs were just dead after Boston, not to mention Price stunk up the joint.

As of right now MAF has been performing better, but all that could change within 2 games.

I hate to say it but it was Price's fault for the Canadians downfall. Now, I say this with no offence what-so-ever. None, at all so please noone call me out on it.

He was tired and over-played and just wasn't ready for that type of responsibility and commitment. He mentioned this in an interview;

"It seems like I've been playing for two years straight"

He wasn't mentally ready to take on the deep rounds of the Playoffs. He is still good though and he will see a Stanley Cup in his career.

There are of course some obvious differences that need to be pointed out when comparing the Ducks of '07 and the '08 Flyers.

First and foremost, the Flyers have Biron, while the Ducks had Giguere. Giggy is a proven winner and a former Conn Smythe trophy winner (for a losing side no less). Biron is a lifetime backup who, although playing well this year, is just another name on the list of Flyers' goaltenders that just can't cut it.

Secondly, the Ducks had a defensive core that had Pronger, Niedermayer, and Beauchemin. The Flyers have Timonen and Coburn...oh, and Derien Hatcher, lol.

Finally, IMO the Ducks played a better team defense than the Flyers and their PK was much better than Philly (86.8% vs 77%), which allowed them to take as many penalties as they did.

The Flyers are going to need to capitalize on their PP opportunities if they want to remain competitive in this series. With the unit they have, I don't think that should be a problem (although the Pens PK is doing outstanding so far - all the Hal Gill naysayers have been silenced). IMO it might be a better idea to replace Lupul with Knuble, in order to get some heavier traffic in front of Fleury. Knuble is a beast - always willing to pay the price. Great player for the city of Philly.

Pens > Flyers in 6. Maybe 5, It's going to be a stressful round for me...

Wings > Stars in 6.

This game was hard to watch, there was very little energy from the Stars and I think the Detroit crowd knew it cause there was alot of empty seats in the third period. Least they scored once and 3 of their 4 goals were PP's so it was entirely Turco's fault.

Today we also learn that Timonen is out for the season with a bloodclot in his ankle. Bad news for the Flyers
