The Flyers are up 301 in the series on the backs of three shutouts. They’re the heavy favorite to win the series now, but Broad Street Hockey warns that the boys in orange can’t afford to overlook a desperate Habs team.
It’s important that the Flyers don’t look ahead tonight. With a loss in Game 5 against a Habs team that has been on the brink five times this postseason, the Flyers would have to travel back north to Montreal for a Game 6 in front of a rejuvenated Bell Centre. Much like in the Flyers semifinal series with the Bruins, a win in Game 5 for the team down 3-1 could be a huge swing in the series.
