WE GOT US A SERIES! FLYERS WIN 4-3

That the Flyers went into Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Final trying to make history pretty much goes without saying. But there is history and there is history.

And there is this: no team in the annals of North American professional sports — no team, not one, not ever — has won a playoff series after losing the first three games, won another playoff series after losing the first two games, and ended up winning the championship in the end.

That is what the Flyers were trying to do.

They dig holes in series. They dig holes in games. They lost the first two games of the Final to the Chicago Blackhawks and they trailed by 3-2 in the third period of Game 3. Down, down, it hasn’t seemed to matter. Truth be told, the Flyers dig and dig and kind of seem to like it underground. While the rest of us wait and watch and look for signs that the canary’s breath is labored, they just keep digging out. LINK

The Flyers climbed back into the series with an overtime win at home tonight. GAME ON! I’m just too tired to blog any more tonight. This is some of the best hockey I’ve watched in years. Friday night is critical!

    To quote The Wolf: “Let’s not start sucking each other’s d**ks just yet.”

    The hole-digging the Flyers are doing will be why they’ll lose. You cannot play from behind against a team as good as the Blackhawks. They’re too dangerous and too damned fast. No one wants to see a Stanley Cup here more than I, but the realist in me has me sticking to my original prediction:

    Hawks in six.

  4. ONE GOAL GAMES. Anybody’s series. Goaltending WILL be the difference.

    Our father who art in Philly, Hockey be thy name. Thy will be done, The cup will be won, On ice as well as in the stands. Give us this day our hockey sticks, And forgive us our penalties, as we forgive those who cross-check against us. Lead us not into elimination, But into victory. In the name of the fans, Lord Stanley, and in the name of the FLYERS. Amen
