Tough loss in Philly

...But a lot of good to build on, too.

The Flyers won, but they know they dodged a bullet. The Bruins are going home and have not ceded all the momentum in this series. They can close out their opponent with a strong effort Monday and should get a better performance in net from Tuukka Rask aka "Cool Hand Tuuk".
(Author's note-- Rask was remarkably composed after the loss in Philly. Some goalies, after a loss like that, are despondent and dejected. We saw none of that from Rask. He wasn't flippant about it either, he was He knew he didn't have the greatest game in net and wasn't dwelling on it. That bodes well for him and his teammates on Monday night. The more I'm around this kid, the more I see how money he is, to borrow a phrase from the cult classic "Swingers")

I'll be back this weekend with a Memorial Cup preview and some scouting reports on the key draft eligibles.
