So as much as its great to see the passion of all the Flyers fans, and all the talk about how the Flyers dominated and they will kill the Devils, thats cool and all but personaly im going to look at this series game by game and nothing further, plus it makes each win even more exciting. So I guess my point is, Flyers better lace up there skates a lttle tighter then normal because, neither this series or the ones that follow will be easy.
I don't think most of us Flyers fans are jumping the gun, I mean we all saw what happened to the Bruins in 2010 when the Flyers came back, so I don't think we are all out boasting about the Flyers in this series. I think what you're seeing now is just more confidence and faith in this team than you have in years past. It can come off looking a big arrogant, especially with the amount of issues Flyers fans stir up on here to begin with, but I mean look at what this team has gone through with injuries, goaltending issues, and defense issues and look at what they continue to do. I'm not saying every other team out there hasn't dealt with some sort of negativity either this season. I am not saying they are destined to go all the way this year either, in fact that would be a stupid statement for me to even make, but I do have a ton more confidence in this years team than any other team in my memory. To describe the team this year in a simple word, they are relentless. They don't give up and they never quit. The amount of times the Flyers have started games behind on the scoreboard and come back to win is astonishing. Starting down 0-1 or 0-2 is not a good thing at all, but the fact that when most teams rarely come back to win these games and the fact that the Flyers continue to do it is even rarer and I cannot remember another team being able to do it. Then again, the Devils do have Marty Brodeur back there, so as you stated, he can single handedly change the outcome of the game. So no, the series is far from over, but to basically sum it up as I said before I just think you're seeing the confidence the Philly fans as a whole have in the team right now.
