Could it be we were all wrong about this?
I’m not sure I heard anyone say the Flyers had a chance against Chicago, and yet, after four games, the series is tied and it’s the Hawks now who have the jitters. And could it be that there was a reason most of Montreal’s forward were silent when they played Philadelphia? Because the Hawks forwards are just as silent as Montreal’s were.
Maybe the Flyers are for real after all.
Take away the nasty and belligerent fans in Philadelphia. Forget the Broad St. bullies of old. This team, and it’s only a little tough to say, is a great-looking squad indeed, led by the gigantic and hockey-wise Chris Pronger, who doesn’t stand for any horseplay in front of his goalie.
This orange team first took out the upper-echelon New Jersey Devils, then came back from down 3 games to nil to the Boston Bruins and won it in game seven after fronting the Bruins three goals, and now have stormed back from a two-game deficit to tie everyone’s sexy pick – the Chicago Blackhawks.
This is pretty impressive work by the Phildelphia Flyers. Wow.
Is it possible they can win it all?
