It looks like Voracek is odd man out vs. TB

 

Giroux - Coots - Farabee

Laughton - Hayes - Konecny

JVR - Grant - NAK

Bunnaman - Thompson - Pitlick

 

Looks like Haag is sitting and Ghost will be in....

Jake.

 

Farabee is on the top line in his place.

 

I would have put NAK there to be honest would love to see him play with Giroux and Coots.

I get letting Farabee get the shot on the top line. But, I'm with you. Would have loved to see NAK inserted there. I can just picture him having some huge 2 or 3 goal game and never looking back. He needs just a bit more confidence and he can become a legit secondary point producer. He has all the intangibles, tenacity..solid shot...nice hockey sense. He just has to put it all together. 

 

 A LOT of guys playing pure old school Flyer hockey...NAK, Cooter, Konency, Laughton, Grioux (some of the time...lol). Even Grant and Thompson make thos team much tougher to play against. That is a **** of a lot of forwards playing inspired hockey. This group is gonna punish an opposing defense in a 7 game series!!

So....if we beat Tampa tonight, its 100% locked into a 7 game series with the Habs. If we lose to Tampa we play the winner of Toronto and Columbus....correct?

While I won't argue NAK has earned it, maybe his effort per dollar playing on the same line will shame JVR into at least breaking a sweat.

And to me the worst part if you win home ice throughout the playoffs what does that really even mean??

 

The color of the jersey you wear on a given night?? I hope once the playoffs actually start we all only hear the home team goal song/horn when they score....otherwise there is nothing to give the home team that feels like home at all.

Last change, which is actually a pretty big thing when you're looking to match Couturier against Kucherov/Bergeron/Mathews etc.

 

Other than that, there's no crowd to energize, so the effect is minimized.

Good point i had actually totally forgot about that which is huge since you get to set your matchups. And it can work in the Flyers favor.

 

So a win today would be huge. I would love to win this #1 overall seed. Winning always makes things better.

So the Flyers went 0-2 vs the Bolts.

 

In the first meeting they lost 1-0. On the lone Maroon goal.

 

Kase (6th NHL game) and Friedman (3rd NHL game) were in the lineup then.

 

Hart in goal stopped 27 of 28 shots.

 

And in the second meeting the Bolts beat the Flyers 5-3 (5th goal empty net) for their 10th win in a row.

 

The Flyers were still trying to find their footing and struggled with this team 5 on 5 but their PK shut the Bolts down on 5 tries.

 

The Flyers got the power play going scoring on 2 of 5 attempts. Hart only stopped 19 of 23 shots.

 

I think the Flyers are a much better well rounded team now than this med February meeting.

 

I expect AV to try and matchup the Coots line vs the Palat, Point and Kucherov line and try and shut it down.

 

Should be a very very good game. I think Hart is playing the best hockey of his young career and will be up for the task.

 

Flyers will need everyone rowing at the same time to slay this dragon.

 

Go Flyers!!!!

It means opposition center is first stick down. This may seem trivial, but it ain't.

 

I've been watching faceoffs and with our guys being the best in the league, that little advantage is enough to put us into the 60+% mark. The translates directly into possession and it removes scoring threats from lost faceoffs in our end. 

 

In short, it's actually bigly yuge.

No it's not its the tactical side of it I hadn't even considered like last line change.

 

And sides of the ice the start on and finish on within proximity to the bench.

 

Just win baby!

I put this edit to one of my posts in the wrong thread, lol. Little bit hungover today:

 

 

Edit: one of the reasons that first stick down matters is that the guy first down gets kicked out more. This equals faceoffs against lesser opponents and more wins

      I’m as a big a Flyers fan as they come but I’m generally pretty pessimistic about the team based on their track record for breaking my heart with either running into a buzzsaw (Oilers, Pens, Hawks, or Wings) or making breathtakingly bad screw ups and allowing soft goals at the worst possible times.   There is something VERY different about this team and I have confidence in them that I literally never had in them before in the 36 years I have followed the Flyers.  If we don’t win it th

      Just finished the game thanks to an excellent stream   As I said all along, starting Elliott was a stroke of genius. He has the Caps number. Plus it keeps him fresh and ready, without any rust. You never know when you might need him   My faith in Laughton and NAK has paid off. As I have been saying for months now, they are valuable assets and will be a major factor for this team. I love those guys   I got nothing else, this is probably my best post ever

      Nothing like watching hockey in the Dog days of August down south...     ...waking up at 6 am and it's 80 degrees and with 77% humidity...getting ready for game day.

      Nice win by a Flyers.   Flyers are now no lower than #2 seed.  If they beat TB they get #1 seed, lose and they are #2.   Hayes played a great game....

      Unbelievable. Probably one of his best as a pro to be honest. I've not seen a player buy time like that in awhile. Very impressive.   More importantly, that line is buzzing and a real handful for three opposition.    TB will be a real test. They are playing very stingy and can be dangerous.

      Only thing I was NOT surprised by.   Hi Everyone! Good to be back!! GO FLYERS! Unreal Round Robin!   Hart is the REAL DEAL. Verdict is in. I'll never doubt this kid again. And our depth is suddenly REALLY impressive.   So cool.   (Hope you all are healthy and safe during these unprecedented times....hang in there fellow humans!)
