2012 NHL Playoffs, Devils Vs. Flyers, Game Four: Reaction To Philadelphia Being On The Brink Of Elimination

The Philadelphia Flyers are in some deep trouble after losing 4-2 Sunday night to the New Jersey Devils.

The Flyers once again looked flat and uninspired in a content that as Scott Burnside of ESPN.com writes, was anything but a tight affair:

"Oh you can call this a one-goal game with an empty-netter thrown in for good measure. And history will remember the New Jersey Devils' 4-2 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers Sunday night as such, but this one was a rout by any standard except the scoreboard."

New Jersey has been better in every facet of the game this series. Even after leading 2-0 early on, the Flyers were just hammered for the next 50 minutes without much of a break.

However, Scott Hartnell doesn't feel Philly is ready to quit, according to NHL.com:

"One thing I like about our group is we're not going to give up," Hartnell said. "We're going to fight right through to the end. We're going home. We'll have a day to re-focus. It's do or die, one game."

If the Flyers are going to get back in it, Tuesday night must be the turnaround.
