…This week’s games are obviously huge and it’s a very good sign that the Flyers realize that and know that their best hockey had better be on the horizon. The potential exists for the Flyers to pull four points ahead of the Capitals with two games in hand, while also going further in front of the Penguins, the lone team that stands in their way this point when it comes to an Atlantic Division title.
I agree with Carchidi in that Bobrovsky will likely get one, if not both of these contests, and will probably be the man in between the pipes come playoff time for the Orange and Black. The Caps will be red hot coming in on Tuesday, and it will be up to the Flyers to stop them in their tracks. I have a bad feeling – I SINCERELY hope I’m wrong – but I have a bad feeling that these next two games will show the Flyers’ glaring defensive weakness without having Chris Pronger in the lineup against some of the game’s best players. We shall see though; one game at a time.
