Hate to admit it but they're done. The NHL's Flyers could not beat the AHL's Marlies. About says it all. Unless G and Jake play like the stars they're supposed to be, even though they've been MIA for the last four, five games, and are the best players on the ice this weekend, the two games will be ugly. Then again, maybe they're not that good.



The Window to the Playoffs is closing for the FLYERS.

Here is a true FACT:

The FLYERS need to win, in Regulation time, a Back to Back Saturday Sunday Games against two of the HOTTEST teams in the Entire NHL in Pittsburgh and NY Islanders.

Lets not forget we also have to Hope that Detroit and Boston needs to slip up and screw up too.

Boston plays their Final Game against Ottawa in Boston on Saturday Afternoon.

Detroit plays their Final Game against NY Rangers in NY on Saturday afternoon as well.

Out of those two games.... Boston has a Cookie if they don't treat Ottawa as a Cookie. Ottawa is out of the Playoffs all together. It is Tempting for Boston to walk in thinking that this is an Easy win. HOWEVER, Ottawa's Individual Players are Playing for a 2017 NHL Job. Also Boston cannot let up as Detroit and Philadelphia are close (93 points 93 points & 92 points)

Detroit has a Tougher Challenge as NYR fell from the top 3 to a Wild Card Slot and are Not HAPPY about that. The NY Islanders play Buffalo on Saturday in Brooklyn and your FLYERS in Brooklyn on Sunday. SO NY Rangers are Hoping to Beat Detroit and that NYI lose one or both of those games to REGAIN Home Ice Advantage in Round 1 of the Playoffs.

Now the toughest News.

Sure the FLYERS have TWO games in hand as Opposed to just one game. BUT THEY ARE BACK TO BACK against TWO of the HOTTEST TEAMS in the last 6 Weeks. NYI have won 6 out of their last 7 and the only team that they lost too in that stretch? Pittsburgh. The Penguins have won their last 9 Straight Games. WOW!

So,... Its like the Equivalent of a amateur club boxer (Ham & Egg'er) Beating a Ranked Champion.

But Wait....... DIDN'T ROCKY BALBOA PULL THAT OFF? DIDN'T ROCKY BEAT CREED?? Yes... but it was the second match....

SO the Point is......

The odds are stacked against the FLYERS.

Now the odd thing is that the FLYERS tend to do better when their back is against the wall and with everything to loose.

IT should be a Dramatic Flair to the End of the Season.


I know who I am rooting for...

Just Sayin'
