Losers GDT - Flyers Game 5

I am very certain the Flyers win this one in convincing fashion.
-
-
-
Pretty sure the refs cannot allow any more interference on our forwards in front of Miller. In game 4 the 15 foot radius around Miller was a "free cross-checking and interference zone". That won't continue to happen. I'm sure the refs have to review tape and realize just how badly they called that game.
(because that hasn't been happening at both ends...)
-
-
-
Pronger with one arm is better than syvret with two. This is the must win game. We lose this, we probably lose the series
-
-
-
The more people talk about Kaleta, the more it shows that he's doing his job. He needs to be ignored...he's small potatoes and just a distraction. If we jump on them and get a lead, he becomes a moot point, so let's do that.
-
-
-
Am I the only one that wouldn't mind seeing Jody Shelly play and mixing it up with Tyler Myers a bit. I honestly feel we have no one on the roster that can physically stand up to that guy.
-
-
-
Rinaldo would be chaos..

He hits like a truck.
(He's 170 fucking pounds. For the record so does Gerbe but it doesn't ever amount to anything.)
-
-
-
OMG rinaldo is starting. This may be one of the worst or best coaching decisions ever.
(Dude only played 1:56 effectively putting the Flyers down a man in a game when they really could have used some extra legs against the depleted Sabres.)
-
-
-
Rinaldo takes out Miller, breaks him for the rest of the series. Gets suspended. Flyers win.
-
-
-
Rinaldo is ****ing playing? Oh ****ING NO! NO NO NO!
-
-
-
I'm starting to think Rinaldo is a mob move: take out someone important and we'll take care of you, regardless of the repercussions. That would pretty much cement our legacy of awesomeness.
-
-
-
50 percent chance of rinaldo getting thrown out of the game today.
100 percent chance of rinaldo fighting someone
(What about 150% chance of him being as much of a non-factor as you can possibly be while still playing.)
-
-
-
LOL WTF.

Zherdev gets shrugged off by Ennis
-
-
-
i'm going out on a limb - but game over.
(wow...)
-
-
-
Is he drunk?
(Reactions to their goaltending are literally all over the place.)
-
-
-
Well we lost already. Great job guys. Bob would of had that ****.
-
-
-
worst goalie ever
-
-
-
****ing Leighton is on the bench, what a joke
-
-
-
I still think we can comeback in this one.
-
-
-
And it said on the ticker on TSN that Carter and Pronger are out for the series.
-
-
-
I remember. I was at a game where Roman Checkmonik (sp) gave up about 3 weak goals in less than 8 minutes in the playoffs. We were about to start humming batteries at him.
-
-
-
Come Flyers, it's only Ryan Miller. By HFB logic he has to be awful.

The reasoning:

He has posted 2 shutouts in a playoff series. Impressive on its own but with HFB logic it fails to compare with Leighton's 3. And as we all know Leighton sucks b***s.

Therefore Miller isn't good enough to hold Leightons jock strap.
(makes sense to me...)
-
-
-
This is so ridiculous. We're not going to score 4 goals on Miller, game over.
-
-
-
I'm ****ing done, I don't understand how officiating can be this ******* bad game after game...
-
-
-
What i don't get why anyone is really surprised. This team hasn't really played well in awhile and needs to be taken out of its misery. Buffalo will move on and we still look forward to next year and the offseason. Sure i didn't expect 2 soft goals that quick, but i expected at least one. This team has been playing crap even in the 1-0 losses. Buffalo is a better team and plays a better system with a much better goalie.

(I don't know if I would go that far. I would say that both teams are good, and if anything wins Buffalo the series it will be their coaching, goaltending edge, and momentum.)
-
-
-
What is with the "i quit," tude here? Bad start, yes. 2 periods left people. Anything can happen in the next 40 minutes!

Miller isn't a god, he can be beaten.
-
-
-
Anyone hear who thinks this game IS NOT over is retarded... We have MFL in net and Boosh was starting.... I mean come on..... No Carter, which doesn't matter b/c he is a ghost in the PO's and no Pronger.
(good call)
-
-
-
The PP has looked awesome but jesus christ Miller...
-
-
-
Please don't tell me because of this quick turnaround, we will be starting Leighton next game.
-
-
-
I don't care what ****ing idiot is in goals if we win the game. I would put Robert freaking esche in net if it meant we win
(Please for the love of god put Robert Esche in net...)
-
-
-
Lindy Ruff setting up the excuses for the post game show!
(lol)
-
-
-
Dammit I don't want to go to OT with Leighton....Miller has been clutch so far
-
-
-
I don't like the derisive Miller chant. He's been pretty great.
-
-
-
How good has gaustaud been for buffalo. God damn it flyers, one goal. One more goal!
(Not so much until the last two games)
-
-
-
Oh ****, I missed that Pominville incident. Ow. Ow. Ow.
-
-
-
Ennis
(Flyers fan from Vermont calls it)
-
-
-
series is officially over. There is no way this team will win a game with their backs to the wall.
-
-
-
lol nice rebound leighton
-
-
-
We continue to dominate this team and lose.
(yeah okay...)
-
-
-
how depressing. The Flyers should take this up with the NHL. The reffing has been so once sided it's almost farsical.

How is gerbe allowed to punch a player in the face after the whistle, and not get called for anything. Mike richards gets punched in the face after a whistle, and gets to go to the box.

I'm ****ed off with the NHL. It's a ****ing disgrace. What a fix.
-
-
-
We couldn't even get the puck out of our own zone. Buffalo was all over us regardless of how bad Boucher was.
(Hey look, logic!)
-
-
-
Wow... I [feel] like a total d-bag now.
(Guy who called Ennis.)
-
-
-
85% of teams that win game 5 in a 2-2 series go on to win the series.

Leighton has probably lost us another series.
-
-
-
Buffalo like Pittsburgh, is a team where the sum is greater than their parts. We are pretty much the complete opposite. Its just ironic that Pittsburgh is probably cruising to the second round while we golf and without their 2 superstars. Its bad enough we get ribbed, but imagine now when we get knocked out?
-
-
-
It's what's so perplexing to me. The guys that run this team were members of the Cup winning teams of the 70's...where they had a solid goalie.

They just can't see the forest through the trees.
-
-
-
Who makes a kicking save on a ice level shot unscreened from the point?
Even Devan Dubnyk would have soaked that up with ease.
(lol)
-
-
-
Disappointing. Outplayed them for 5 games and suffer due to bad bounces, poor officiating and questionable goaltending. Sunday is a day of miracles apparently, so lets hope we get one in Buffalo. This team is too good to not win this series.

And to the haters that are pinning our prediciment on a goalie. You're right. It's all Millers fault.
(Flyers fans have to be the most delusional fans I've seen. Neither team is really outplaying the other. Goals are identical, Hits, Shots, and Faceoffs are all close. The teams just have different strengths which makes the Flyers look like they're playing better than the Sabres. A lot of that supposed domination is the Sabres being content to let the Flyers take all the shitty angle shots they want.)
-
-
-
We just used our third lifeline on the $1000 question.
(hahahahahahaha)
-
-
-
you realize BUF is an AHL caliber team with a good goalie?
Um, Miller was pretty much garbage all season.
-
-
-
Leighton totally ******** on the D in his interview:
-
-
-
So 4 goals against and all questionable and not one person in the world can come up with a logical choice as to who should start game 6 ?

How is this not finally a red flag to someone high up in this organization ?????
-
-
-
The folks high up in the organization are color blind, they can't see red flags.
-
-
-
Buffalo had like 1 scoring chance on Boucher and scored three times.
-
-
-
We totally deserved this one. It's a shame that Buffalo are leading this serie.
(With extremely rare exceptions, the games you win are the games you deserve.)
-
-
-
Remember how buffalo smoked us when we had esche in net? Yea it (starting Leighton) will be like that.
-
-
-
Bloggers on the Flyers beat were implying that Bobrovsky had a serious breakdown. He was despondent after game 1 and, allegedly, has been a zombie after getting pulled in game 2.

From the sounds of it, if he showed any sign of being mentally "together" at all, he would be getting these starts.

I feel awful for him. On a team full of North American meatheads, he is on an island because of the language barrier. It's impossible for a veteran to have a heart to heart with him when he's low.
-
-
-
I agree, I think they'll start Boucher and say the old "everyone has a bad night"
-
-
-
The soaps One Life to Live and All my Children are being cancelled yet we keep seeing reruns of ALL MY GOALTENDING EFF UPS by Holmgren and this organization. Again...two career backup goalies and a rookie going into the playoffs...I swear you have better odds playing Powerball...
I prefer "As the Goalies Turn"
-
-
-

Also, Michael Leighton blames the defense for that goal publically? I hope Zherdev has a few Russian mobsters come and garrote that stupid ****, and his body is found floating somewhere in the north end of the Delaware, buoyed by his freebound-generating RBK pads. Moron.
(Stay classy)
-
-
-
i cant believe this. i look at our lineup up and down and i just wonder how...

how are we losing to this team

the mother****ing buffalo sabres

a team filled with call ups and injuries, and yet they relentlessly **** us into submission seemingly every night

im going into a coma, no one wake me up
-
-
-
I agree with you fully on all points but your suggestion that the Sabres may be leading the scoring chances. I'd tend more towards equal with a slight edge over the Flyers. All of our puck possession and zone time has not translated to a lot of GOOD chances, but rather mostly perimeter/bad angle chances on Miller (even close chances can be more or less easy saves if they're not right in the slot).

That said, I think the edge on really good opportunities falls to the Flyers; Miller has had to make a lot more big saves than any of the Flyers goalies have, but as you mentioned, goaltending is the great equalizer.


I also don't think the Flyers are that hungry. I think for the last few months they figured that they'd just show up and what happened last year would happen again. They seem too content.
(More logic!)
-
-
-
Why dress Rinaldo to play a minute? Surely Shelley could have done that and provided a bit more veteran presence/locker room mojo than Rinaldo. Or play Gus or Holmstrom... not a deciding factor but seems bizarre.
(My pondering exactly)
-
-
-
OFFTOPIC:
they really need to stop the kate smith thing
it was better when they used it in ' pressure, backs against the wall ' type games ( like game 6 / 7 will be.)
its losing it impact in games now
-
-
-
These number 1 goalies are pretty hard to find, so how will the Flyers magically get one after 20 years of not having one? I just want a competent goalie who wont lose a series for you, not exactly be the reason you won. im not good with the salary cap but the only goalie I know that is out there is Bryzgalov.
(Which is funny because Bryzgalov completely lost the series for Phoenix. Do these people watch hockey?)
