Who we'll hate, who to be scared of, and more.

1. WHERE PHILLY SITS IN THE EAST

 

 

2. WHAT PREVIOUS OPPONENT FANBLOGS SAID:

Die By The Blade on Philly's 5-4 win over the Sabres:

The second period has haunted the Sabres all season and tonight was the same old story. The Flyers scored three unanswered second period goals and took a 4-3 lead. The Flyers momentum seemed to come after Nathan Gerbe was taken into the boards by Marc-Andre Bourdon and Matt Ellis responded by challenging him. Ellis was assessed a minor and a 10 minute misconduct for instigating. The penalty not only meant the Sabres would not have a power play but they would be without Ellis for the remainder of the second period.

With Gerbe unable to return because of the injury and Ellis resigned to watching the rest of the period, the Flyers took control of the game.

The Flyers played an almost flawless third period but Drew Stafford tied the score with only 1:35 remaining to help the Sabres salvage at least one point in what amounted to another epic collapse.

 

3. PLAYER THAT WILL PISS YOU OFF.

#27 - Minimum Talbot

You'll hate Minimum Talbot because anything he does tonight will be more than he did all of last year.

4. PLAYER THAT WILL SCORE

Claude Giroux

He doesn't have huge numbers against the Pens:

GP G A 14 6 1

 

But that is because he only has played 14 games against them. Giroux is disgusting. Last year he had 3 game-winning goals against the Pens.

And he is having a monster year:

Jesus.

 

5. Other thing to know.

Tonight's game will most likely be featured on HBO's 24/7, which will start next week.
