Flyers Beat Bruins Again To Force A Game Seven

The Flyers have put themselves in position to shock the hockey world because they not only have the door open to go¬† the conference finals with a win on Friday, the Canadiens’ startling defeat of the Penguins now opens the door to the Stanley Cup Finals for the Fly Guys.

How could you write a more improbable story?  They were beaten up physically and trailing 3-0 in the series.  Nobody, not even many of the Flyers faithful who never say die, believed this team could come back and even up this series.

They’re playing spirited hockey and I thought the emotion and passion at the Wachovia Center was going to blow the roof off the place after the Mike Richards goal early in the contest.

You knew once he scored that goal that it was going to be impossible for the Bruins to overcome the momentum that the Flyers have built up gradually in this series.

“We didn’t want to put ourselves in a vulnerable position,” Richards said. “We came out physical. I thought we played well in the first period.”

“I thought Mike looked as good tonight as he did when he came in and pinch-hit for ‘Boosh’ halfway through the [Game 5],” coach Peter Laviolette said afterwards.¬† “He looked in control of his net, not a lot of second opportunities, he looked big, he looked square – I guess all the things you want to say about your goaltender when the end of the night comes around.”
Now the stage is set for game seven in Boston, so they must put together another great performance and you know it will probably be close.¬† It’ll likely go into the third period either tied or one team up by a goal.
It’s going to be very hard to stop these guys in orange and black.
