    Does Philly make history Friday night or does Boston squeak by?

    Flip a coin. Someone will get a bounce or deflection and move on to play the Habs.

    One thing I will predict: The loser will score 2 or fewer goals; probably 1 or fewer.

    Oh, I so want to see a Boson team choke, though.

    I'm hoping for a Bruins/Habs match-up just so we can all re-live this storied rivalry for a week or two. The West may have the flashier players at the moment but the drama will be alive and well in the East.

    I'm a Flyers and was depressed thru the first 3 games. It will be a nail biter. Kinda hoping Richards knocks out Savard.

    An easy bet. In only 26 out of the 73 playoff games played so far this year (35 percent) has the losing team scored more than 2 goals.

    The same way he knocked out Booth - cheaply...

    I was going to say one or fewer; but I whimped out.

    You still trying to push your "luck" wins hockey games?? Dude, watch the game. If you don't understand what's going on, i'll explain it to you.

    fyi, any game that is played inside a cage (boards/glass) will have elements of bounces and riccochets.

    Mon-Pitt game 6 was a perfect example. The Pens put a puck in the net with a minute to go in the first just they wave it off because the ref blew the whistle for no reason other than that he lost sight of the puck. Plus the Pens banged the iron a few times in the second.

    Yes, that's all part of the game; but don't tell me there was no luck involved.

    Game 7 was another matter. The Pens came out scared and flat. Luck or no luck; you can't do that and win.

    The team who played better will always win in a best of 7!

    The End!
