Eight Goals By Philly?
April 13, 2012 in Detroit Red Wings, Florida Panthers, Los Angeles Kings, Montreal Canadiens, Nashville Predators, New Jersey Devils, Philadelphia Flyers, Pittsburgh Penguins, Sidney Crosby, Vancouver Canucks Tags: Evgeny Malkin, Sidney Crosby
Hmm. LA beat Vancouver again, this time 4-2, and reports say close to 35,000 frantic Canucks’ fans are now lining up to jump off the Lions Gate bridge. Try not to hit any salmon please.
Luci mentioned something about the poor fans in Vancouver, but this has never crossed my mind. What about us?
In other news, New Jersey handled Florida 3-2, Detroit evened their series with Nashville by edging the Preds 3-2, and Philadelphia once again beat Pittsburgh, this time by walloping them 8 to 5. What’s with eight goals? This isn’t playoff goaltending and defence.
And what I noticed as I saw some of this game from the Ellis Island Casino and Pizza Eatery in Vegas (just behind Bally’s), is that the Flyers were going hard and heavy on Malkin and Crosby. This is playoff hockey, and what has to be done to be successful. Pound the livin’ jeesis out of the stars. It’s not rocket science.
And it’s a fine example of what the Canadiens are going to have to do in the future if they’re going to capture that elusive 25th mug. Be tough and take no prisoners.
