The Flyers are now down 2-1 in the series, and tonight is a must win situation for the Flyers.  Going into this series, Flyers fans were very positive about the Devils, stating that if we play our game, we have a striaght route to the cup. Wells Flyers fans, they aren't playing their game...yet.



With the overtime loss on Tuesday, I think the Flyers received the Devils message. Here are a few things to look for tonight:

  • Claude Giroux- G has been shutdown all series, today he will, and kind of has to produce.
  • Scott Hartnell- Giroux's linemate, like Claude has been shutdown this round.  Hartsy needs to play a physical game early on and really get under New Jersey's skin.  The Flyers need their leading scorer, I think we get him tonight.
  • Zach Parise- Parise has certainly elavated his game this series, as it seems like he is EVERYWHERE. Parise is using his speed to win the race to the puck almost every time.
  • Bryzgalov- Plain and simple, if the Flyers want to come back in this series and become a real threat for the Cup, we need the Bryz-ness.
  • Powerplay- The Flyers PP has been bad lately, especially in overtime on Thursday.  The key reason for the Flyers round one PP success, was the amount of shots they threw at Marc-Andre Fluery.  If the Flyers eliminate the "perfect" play, and just throw pucks on net, they will even up this series.

Tonight's game 4 is on at 7:30pm on the NBC Sports Network.
