The Habs still trail 2-1 in the series, but their win over the Flyers on Thursday night was a dramatic lesson in just how quickly a playoff series can turn.
Flyers GM Paul Holmgren said Monday it was still "a stretch" to suggest injured center Jeff Carter would return to action in the Eastern Conference finals against Montreal.
Two teams with dreams of destiny, Philly and Montreal, are set to clash in the East finals. Scott Burnside believes the series could come down to the duel in net.
For the second straight season, these intrastate rivals will meet in the playoffs. Philly is sporting a healthier lineup than last postseason, but can it still shut down Pittsburgh's towering trio of centers?
The Flyers' inconsistent start is nothing new. Just look at their start to the 2006-07 season. But can Philly rebound this time around despite its depleted lineup?
