LETS FUCKING GOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!! Huge dub for the boys in Orange and Black tonight! Just when you thought the Islanders had it in the bag, the Flyers once again prove why you can never count them out.
It started off shaky for the Flyers as the Islanders were able to get the first goal which was complete bullshit as Barzal was standing in the crease blocking Hart from playing goalie. The Flyers would respond though as they have shown all year long and it would be no other than the captain Claude Giroux who would tip one past Varlamov to tie the game at 1.
Less than two minutes later another one of the guys who AV asked to put his big boy pants on would pot one. JVR would get a sick pass from Laughton and would give the Flyers the 2-1 lead heading into the third period.
The third period started off perfect for the Flyers as just four minutes in Matt Niskanen would give the Flyers a two goal lead with a sick shot from the point. Things would start to fall apart though as you could feel the Islanders coming back. Sure enough with less than five minutes left, Brock Nelson would take a slap shot and beat Hart to pull the Islanders within one. Then of course in typical late game Flyers fashion, they would let Derek Brassard be left wide open on the side of the net and he would tie the game at 3. We would head to overtime and I stopped breathing for the next hour and change….
Overtime was beyond stressful as both teams had plenty of scoring chances and the Flyers were one shot away from being sent home. But that wouldn’t be the case, ill let the video due the talking….
Game 6 is Thursday at not sure what time yet but probably 7pm and last but not least…”Be a fuckin’ Flyer.”
