Wow...bye-bye Philly!

My prediction that the winner of the Flyers/Pens series was going to get swept in the next round came pretty damn close!

Man I love Bob Cole in the playoffs! So much better than the regular season .

Congrats to the Devils and all of their fans. Rangers/Caps better take note: this isn't the same team that got taken to seven by Florida. The Devils are the real deal.

This.

...sigh...

Lots to love about this team, but geez, wish they the hadn't peaked in the playoffs in April.

All credit to NJ. Honestly, I think if Philly holds on and wins Game 2 1-0 they would have won the series, but it just wasn't in the cards. Dammit.

I can almost agree with you finally haha. But I'd take Jim Hughson all day. I love living in Michigan as I get CBC here, great hockey coverage.

Yeah I'm starting to prefer hughson as well. It's tough to hate a guy like Cole though. 40+ years with the CBC and still going strong . Isn't the same as he was 15 years ago though. Seems to really (especially in the regular season) take breaks mid-game from time to time and describe the atmosphere in the arena (especially in Toronto, Montreal and Ottawa!).

But because I never like to agree with you Jim Hughson #@#@#@#@ing sucks and Bob Cole is a god

Bob Cole is also a Leaf lover so no wonder you like him

I have always love Hughson, every time I hear, "Great save ______!" It makes my night.

Bob Cole is the best, I just got home from work, started the BBQ and heard old Cole yelling "what a gift, what....a....gift" - then saw the Bryz, well....gift.

In this thread alone, there is the "they are happy with beating the Pens so they don't care to win any more" or something to that effect. Silliness.

It's funny you mention that because the first thing I thought of after the game was "Devils in 5" and how you might feel worse then me right about now.

My second rule back when I used to make some "phone calls about games" was to never bet with my heart (first was never chase money). I think I might have been betting with my heart a little by not giving the Devils any shot BUT I still think the Flyers gift wrapped this series for the Devils and tonight was more proof. Once Briere hit the post on a wide open net on what should have been a gift goal from Brodeur to tie it up, I knew it wasn't meant to be for my boys this year.

I won't lie and say the dough wouldn't had been useful, but I just feel good about getting my prediction right. Take that ESPN "experts"!

Nutshell;


Nice to see the Devils close when they needed to. Hats off though to the Flyers. I know my popcorn chewing image of being a Devils fan and watching the Pens/Flyers in the first round summed it up, but I knew whoever made it through was going to be roughed up. Flyers have a terrific young team that is only going to get better over the next few seasons and will be very tough moving forward.

I said this at the beginning of this series, and for the most part Bryz was the ONLY Flyer worth mentioning, but last night he really gave up a couple of Goals that justified this original post! You just can't give up Goals like that the 2nd one in the playoffs I will continue to root for the 40 Yr. Old Goalie, a 38 Yr. Old did it last year

Kevin Callahan/ Courier-Post

“Saying Bryz’s latest meltdown was just a mistake, however, misses to capture how frightfully inconsistent he has played all season, except for a stretch in March where he was good enough to be named the NHL Player of the Month.”
