The key to winning tonight? Don’t give up two goals in overtime, or 4 goals in the shootout. I really don’t know how else to say it; we had that game in the bag until the final two minutes, we just fall apart the second there’s any kind of man advantage, even if it’s in our favor.

So basically, don't take penalties, and maybe if they pull their goalie we should pull ours too? 6 on 6, whatchu gonna do now huh Flyers?

I’m kidding, mostly, like 50%. Like I’m not expecting it, but I wouldn’t be mad if it happened.

On to the (5 on 5) lines:

For the Flyers:

Giroux - Couturier - Voracek
Farabee - Hayes - Konecny
van Riemsdyk - Laughton - Allison
Lindblom - Cates - Patrick

Provorov - Braun
Zamula - Sandheim
Hägg - Myers


For the Devils:

Kuokkanen - Hughes - Sharangovitch
Zacha - Hischier - Bratt
Johnsson - Boqvist - Merkley
Wood - McLeod - Bastian

Murray - Severson
Butcher - Carrick
White - Tennyson


Your Take:

What’s the number one thing we need to do tonight to finally come away with a win?
