I want Montreal to comeback and win that series. I could see Philadelphia easily beating us. They are playing their best hockey and they are getting healthy. Very scary team. But then again the Preds, Canucks, and Sharks were scary going in as well.

I want the Flyers-Canadiens series to go on as long as possible.

And if possible some key players getting banged up from one of those teams(Richards mainly).

In some ways the Blackhawks and Flyers are somewhat copies of each other. The main difference being the Blackhawks skate circles around the Flyers in terms of team speed. Flyers probably have the slightly better overall team defense though. Keep in mind that the Flyers also haven't faced an offense that has been clicking liking the Hawks have. NJ, Boston, and Montreal were all near the bottom in NHL offense.

Hopefully we can pay them back for that epic collapse we had earlier in the season

The Hawks have better players, are deeper, more skilled and most important they have the hottest goalie going (sorry dominating a couple of teams that wouldn't make it far in the AHL playoffs, does not equate to being a good goalie, Leighton) in the playoffs.

The Hawks in 5.
Goodbye....Someday.

Philly is very physical but can also score at will. Expect Bolland's line against Carter-Richards-Gagne quite a bit. Dustin Byfuglien in front of the net with Chris Pronger trying to get him out of the crease will be key as well. Mike Richards is mega-talented and also a rather dirty player. And do not take your eyes of Claude Giroux or Ville Leino. Something tells me Ben Eager will become somewhat important, Adam Burish too. Daniel Carcillo is the most aggravating player in the league, think Shane O'Brien with a porn stache. He can take some really, really stupid penalties. Leighton is playing great, but the Hawks have faced three terrific goalies in these playoffs and beat them all by simply getting in his way. No matter how good a goalie is, he can't make the save if he can't see the puck. No reason to change this now.

I won't make a prediction yet, but I'll say this. The Blackhawks are the better team. Whether they come out and play like it in Game 1 has yet to be seen, I have my doubts. We haven't seen a really good Game 1 at home in...maybe since the early 90s. They'll be excited, nervous and anxious to put on a show. They have to quell that desire. Just shoot the puck, possess the puck and work the cycle. That's what killed San Jose in the end, not being able to break the Hawks' cycle.

Let's Go Hawks

Also, feel free to join the discussion, Philly fans. As long as it's kept clean and respectful, no problem with having as many people here join the thread.

From the Hawks board:
Of the 16 teams that made the playoffs, they were 14, 15 and 16 in goal production during the regular season.

14. New Jersey 222 goals
15. Montreal 217 goals
16. Boston 206 goals

So the Flyers haven't faced a team that has the offensive abilities that we do. I feel more confident.
