It seems like since the first period of the second game,the fire went out. Without a strong leader(Pronger) the guys seem to have lost their way. Maybe its time for a Sestito or Rinaldo for a little inspiration. The boys need some help. Pronto!!

I felt like they played a much better game and could have won no prob, just didn't capitalize when they could've.

for me it seemed like a team that realized that their opponent needed to be taken seriously but still was trying to avoid going all out like they had against the Pens. Maybe they thought that the Devils needed 7 to take down the Panthers coupled with that they took down the heavily favored Pens meant that they could get through the series at half speed, attempting to get to the next round good to go. Maybe I see it that way 'cause that's what I fear but they don't seem very "inspired" (as this thread is titled) in this series as of yet. This last game showed some hope but I thought the Flyers were going to really impose their will. Instead they may have lost Couts for a while... Jagr looked spent (was hoping he'd be given a shift off or two so when he was out there he had some jump). And please Carle, play the body please and take the bricks out of your skates.

here we go again... the captain argument? we're not losing because of a lack of leadership. 2 games ago G was the 2nd coming of clarke and now we've lost our way? gimme a break. there are solid reasons we lost the last 2 games and they don't have anything to do with the nebulous 'leadership' myth.

@OccamsRazor has the right idea... trade jvr for blueline help.

I love to send JVR to the Yotes for O.E.L.

Yotes need more speed and size on the wing and the Flyers need a young defenseman to anchor and build around. Its a win win for both organizations.

that's the way I see it - and a bunch of us do too - I think you can include the players in that. Many of their comments are along these lines - "we thought it would be easy" "We're playing like we think they'll let us do what we want" etc.

I'm sure the Flyers will win Sunday's game. I'm hoping it's not even close. If the Flyers truly "wake up" and play inspired hockey they can wipe the ice with this Devils team.

[edit: After reading Lavy's comments I realize I forgot to mention the most important thing the Flyers have to change - and it's a fairly simple one: they will have to work much harder. Skate harder to the puck, focus better on executing their assignments - and the result will make the Devils start chasing them for a change.

Paraphrasing Lavy, he says "hard work, competitiveness beats talent" and he's right. It's time the Flyers proved it by being the harder-working team.]

And the flyers- devils have proven this to be true to the letter so far
