Seriously Flyers?


In all honesty, I’ve been having a hard time trying to blog about this second round series, and after tonight’s game I don’t know how much I can articulate without being too crude. I hate new jersey, I really do, like I wouldn’t even root for them if my kid played for them. I’m a Flyers fan through and through, so now that the series is 3-1, I’m freaking furious. I just don’t even know what to think about the flyers right now. 

This was how I thought the Flyers/Penguins game was going to go, not the Devils/Flyers round. Although, they are similarly matched as the Flyers were the 5th seed and the Devils were the sixth during the regular season, and Brodeur is killing it in the net.  It’s not just through these ways that the devils are destroying the flyers. The Flyers just seem slow at puck drop and getting shots on goal. I just don’t know if they can win if they’re not scoring goals.

Watching this series has been so frustrating, because they played so well in the first round. As a philadelphia fan, I’ve come to expect these types of disappointment, but seriously Flyers get it together! I know that they’ve been in this position before, and went up against a team that I think was even harder to beat, but they need to pull out all the stops if they really want this win on tuesday.

Honestly, if the Flyers are out, I’m going West this year with the Kings. I can’t root East if it’s for the Rangers or (let’s hope not) New Jersey.
