The Flyers and Canadiens get the Eastern Conference Finals started today at 7pm in Philadelphia. Both teams are coming off of upsets in the prior round and neither team was thought to make it to this point in the playoffs. This is the first time in NHL history that a 7 and 8 seed made it to the conference final. In the playoffs the hot goalie and momentum is the key, so I’m picking the Flyers to win the series in 7 games. The Flyers muck it and grind it out style will wear the Canadiens out and the Flyers will return the Stanley Cup Finals for the first time since the 96-97 season.
Flyers versus Canadiens Game 1 tonight.
