    +++ Murray: So simple and so poised. He played a quiet but impressive game. I think he made some saves that went under the radar. There were a few chances where the Flyers could have made a run and Mur shut the door down. And he made it look simple.

    +++ Kessel: Right off the first shift, Kessel was flying. 2016 style Kessel. He threw a hit early and started the game with an assist and goal. I thought Geno/Hags were also terrific in this one. That line played well.

    +++ Sid/Jake: These 2 even better than Simon, but I thought Simon complimented that line well enough in Horny's absence. Sid/Jake were on another level and congratulations to Sid for taking over the record. That goal murdered the life of Philly.

    +++ Brassard/Sheary: Flying around all game, #43 was lightning quick. Brassard was playing very well and that's without Rust even having his normal playoff game. Sheary's best playoff game I can think of outside of a few in the 2016 run. They cycled so well for small fast guys. The Flyers couldn't keep up.

    +++ Kuhn/Sheahan: I think you are seeing a pattern here. 2/3 of each line played exceptionally well. Kuhn was terrific and Sheahan's urgency continues to impress me.

    ++++++ Gudas: Thank you

    +++ Dumo/Letang: Dominant top pairing. Dumo is in playoff mode. Letang had a huge goal.


    ++++++++++++ Sully: Name me another coach in any league that is more cutthroat in the postseason than Sully. Yep... you are thinking of the same guy I am. This guy is putting Sheahan/Sid out for d-zone faceoffs up 4-0 in the 3rd period. He's not ****ing around. He's not taking any chances. We may not win it all, but Sully isn't going to let some magical run spark a team. When they are down - he wants to step on their throat.

    I'll say it again! The booing of flyers fans is a combination of Cannibal Corpse, Dying Fetus, and Devourment to my ears! And if we've got any Beatdown bro's up in here, maybe some Clawhammer, too!

    Dumo and Letang playing like a first pairing should, what a game for them.

    +++ MM So poised, so controlled, so confident!

    ++++ Big boys showed up tonight.

    Real talk. Penguins fans absolutely loved Archibald last run and Simon is basically a better version of him?

    Why do people surround him with negativity?

    Same thing with ZAR, legit 4th line option with PK ability.

    It's insane that Sid now has more postseason points than Mario. Many more games but still.

    Like we are watching an era that is now unarguably MORE successful than the era in which we had Mario Lemieux and Jaromir Jagr. So spoiled.
