The Philadelphia Flyers have defeated the Toronto Maple Leafs in seven games in the opening round of the Eastern Conference Playoffs!!

The Flyers won Tuesday night after one of the hardest fought series in both teams histories. A series which featured fighting, diving, hitting, high sticking an occasional goal scored. The series started out in fashion in game one with a fight between goon Donald Brashear and Leafs goon Tie Domi and never looked back from there! Throughout the seven game opening round several players including stars Alex Mogilny and Jeremy Roenick suffered vicious hits at the hands of the other team. We also were able to witness medical history when in game 4 Darcey Tucker was able to come back from the dead on the Ice of the Air Canada Center.

Looking at the stars of the series you have towards Flyers goalie Roman Cechmanek who hopefully silenced critics of him who said he couldn’t win in the playoffs. Roman was solid throughout the seven games and countless overtimes played. Other players who performed admirably were Jeremy Roenick and Sami Kappanen (two goals in the crucial game 5)

So the Leafs are no more and now come the Sens. Ottawa dispatched the Islanders with relative ease and have had a week to rest and prepare for round two. Also Philadelphia will be without it’s best defenseman Eric DesJardins who will be lost for 2 weeks, at least, with a broken foot.

So Toronto, thanks for the memories, and commence with the excuse making!

    umm dude..relax..i think he’s just joking..

    and if he’s not..sick sick man…

  2. Glen says:

    LeClair has to step up against Chara. Size vs. size is the only way to go with him.

  3. Goldenscud says:

    Agreed! Can we convert you to Flyerland?

  4. -Swizz- says:

    that is true..but i dont think any flyer forward matches up to chara…6’9!! the guys a monster..

    ‘scuse me sonny?

    : )

    (i punched myself in the face for being a jackass btw)

  6. calflyers says:

    (i’ll play along)


    yes you did

  7. calflyers says:

    anybody else saying “What the F**K is he talking about”?

  8. Kroeter says:

    Your right, both teams did alot at the dead line, too bad that one team had to lose. Oh well life goes on. See ya next year.

  9. BWbullies says:

    At least it will last to the next round. Thats more then what you can say………

  10. BWbullies says:

    I bet you picked tor in 5. JACK AS*

  11. BWbullies says:

    You need to do a better job of watching the game because they both had an impact on the games. If it wasn’t for LeClair being in Belfour’s crease, Belfour wouldn’t have been cheating towards LeClair and you can forget that triple over time game. As for Amonte he did an incredible job back checking. He broke up plays several times in front of cech. Now I know they didn’t get the goals but there is still another series.

  12. OldNord says:

    I don t give a fuck about TOR, I said Philly will win this serie even if they trailed 2-1 in that serie before and I’m standing at my opinion OTT in 5. BUGGER

  13. WeStSiDe says:

    Did you type that all by yourself?

  14. aaron says:

    The difference being is Cechmanek is putting up those stats IN the playoffs…

    Granted, he’s looked very flakey and given up some bad goals, but if you give up less than 2 goals a game, that’s the important part. How you give them up isn’t an issue.

    Though Lalime has a 1.30 GAA so far, so it’ll be an interesting goalie duel next round. Christ, looking at these goalie stats is just disturbing. 7 guys below 2.00, 10 below 2.10? That is whack.

  15. phillyflyers97 says:

    Is just me or did Cechmanek seem to get better as the series went on. He just needs to get into a groove. He also said that he needs shots to get in a groove, groove is the magic word today, so he gets those shots and gets in a groove he can be really good.

  16. phillyflyers97 says:

    There is so much respect between these two teams now, you could tell from the hand shakes at the end. In the beginning of the series Philly was bashing Tucker and Domi and few others but when it was done and said they found a respect they never really had for each other. That is what hockey and sportsmanship are about.

  17. phillyflyers97 says:

    Quit concentrating on the regular season, that is over. This is the real season and any thing can happen (i.e. Wild + Ducks). So just throw those stats out the door.

    Ottawa had a little bit of trouble against the Islanders and the Flyers will be seeking revenge over last years playoffs. Watch out here come the FLYBOYS!

  18. superman says:

    LOL! Score one for swizz!

  19. superman says:

    You have some big balls from some kid in Philly trying to act all cocky on the Internet. Grow the fuck up.

  20. superman says:

    did you even SEE that idiot do his best ostritch impression while the Leafs player scored from that angle?


    Sens in 5.

  21. superman says:

    And you are definitely going to be contracted soon in 2004


  22. superman says:

    “First thing I want to say to all of the idiots that ridicule other people on here. Grow Up. You are not on the Flyers team nor are we on the Leafs. We are just watchers of the game. So you did not win, the team you support did. That’s it. “

    Exactly. It’s funny, these people trash talk is if they scored the winning goal of overtime.

  23. WeStSiDe says:

    Go back in your hole, you obviously havent grasped the concept of reading yet.

  24. calflyers says:


    get a REAL team

  25. calflyers says:

    actually after i banged your mom, she insisted on doing it for me

    she loves it when i smack her ass

    giddy up!

  26. Lint07 says:


    Come and tell me he won the series for your team!

    They should’ve won it in friggin 5 games!!! But because of him, they won it in 7.

    Let me know when he steals a series.

  27. Lint07 says:

    actually… this is playoff hockey.

    teams play well defensively.

  28. FlyerinOhio says:

    If the match-up is Chara vs. Primeau, Chara wins one on one, yes, but…if thats how they match-up, as a Flyers fan, I’ll take it…it’s the 3rd line vs. the Sens top pairing, which would free up the top 2 lines against the Sens 2 lower pairings, and I’ll take that match-up.

  29. FlyerinOhio says:

    As you posted earlier…reg. season stats don’t mean anything. Well, I’d have to think that last years play-off stats don’t mean anything either then. The past is still the past. Will the Flyers have a tougher time against the Sens, definately, the Sens D is better by leaps and bounds over the Leafs D, but, the past is still the past, anything can happen.

  30. Lint07 says:

    do you understand the concept of ”Defense”????

    if he only receive 20 shots a night and Flyers shot 40 times on the other hand, chances are they’re gonna win more often than not.

    STILL, on those 20 shots a game, he managed to let go AT LEAST 1 softies per game up to game 6 (2 softies in game 6)….

    He’s not THAT bad but what has he ever won again???

  31. -Swizz- says:

    thats pretty pathetic if you really are 34…a grown man still makin momma jokes…

  32. flyersruleclarkstillsucks says:

    was it the whole jizz thing?

  33. flyersruleclarkstillsucks says:

    get over it!

  34. flyersruleclarkstillsucks says:

    belfour stinks on ice!

  35. flyersruleclarkstillsucks says:

    Zdeno Chara is pretty good……..for me to poop on!!!!!!!!

  36. flyersruleclarkstillsucks says:

    i thought leafs only fell in the Fall? go figure! so who are the senators fans here that i need to know about so when the flyers are done with the sens i can rub it in your faces too! all in good fun of course.

  37. DG says:

    Okay Kreskin.


  38. MantaRay says:

    As I suspected.

  39. -Swizz- says:

    haha not really…..its juss fun to exclude him from the bunch….

  40. jpmac says:

    I think we will find out how good Checkmanek is in this up coming series. Ottawa will take a lot more shots than Toronto managed. I also thought that the winner of this series(Toronto/Philly) would not make it past the second round, because they would beat the hell out of each other(which they did) and would be too beat up to beat a higly skilled team. I think Philly will stick with them through four then run out of gas….Ottawa in 6

  41. wingerxx says:

    60 minutes of taking on big boys like Keith Primeau, John LeClair, Donald Brashear, etc, is going to take its toll on any defenseman, I don’t care how big he is. Especially if Chara has to play 30 min. a night.
