I’ve been sweating this series out like a hooker in church since the Sabres took game 1. Given the playoff history of our sports teams in this city, it is a normal occurance anytime a Philly team is in the post-season However after last nights OT win in Buffalo, I am confident the Flyers will dominate the Sabres tomorrow night. Heres is 5 reasons why:
2. Ryan Miller - Okay, so he’s the only goalie with two shutouts the playoffs so far this year. But he’s overrated, and a bitch. I mean I won $1,000 dollars twice on two different scratchoffs within a week of each other one time, but that doesn’t make me a superstar gambler. Oh yea, and who could forget this. Yes, he let down America.
3. Sabres are babies- After game 4 Ruff called out the Flyers for their complaints about the officiating. Basically calling them a bunch of whiners, and said they should just sack up and play hockey. Four days later after the Sabres loss to the Flyers in game 6, Ruff (as well as cRyan Miller) were the ones crying to the media about Richards hit on Connolly. It’s unfortunate that Connolly was hurt on the play, but you can clearly see Richard’s releasing Connolly as he realizes Connolly is going down.
4. Danny Briere – Straight up slings it. Always. He eats Sabres for breakfast. He also has 65 points in 65 postseason games since the lockout. Which is #1 among all active players in the NHL. While unconfirmed reports say that Kaleta calling Brieres x-wife “a smelly pirate hooker” was the primary motivation factor for Briere’s lockerroom speech and superstar third period play in game 6; we can in fact confirm that Briere keeps an african honey badger in his jock strap in place of a cup in order to harness its energy.
5. ROCKY BALBOA - Everytime you count them out, these guys find a way to pull through. (See also: Final game of regular season 2010, Flyers vs. Bruins round 2 2010.) Sure they played like a bunch of limp dicks the last month of the final season, but they have proven they can channel their inner ROCKY and get up after being knocked down. Eh yo, Adrienne…..bring on game 7!
GET FLYERED UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!
