At 8:00 pm, our selection is on the Philadelphia Flyers over the Montreal Canadiens.  Those who thought that the Canadiens' improbable run would end quickly in round one against the talented, top-seeded Flyers were in a for a bit of a shock on Friday.  The lowest seeded team, who beat the mighty Penguins in four games in the play-in round, shocked Philly with a 5-0 rout two nights ago.  Veteran goalie Carey Price was magnificent, stopping all 30 shots he faced while the Flyers pulled their #1, Carter Hart, after he allowed four goals and replaced him with veteran Brian Elliott.  If you're a Flyers fan there's no need to panic just yet.  Philly was simply flat on Friday and the Flyers have done a really good job recently at bouncing back after games like that.  Philly is 7-2 (+6 games on the moneyline) in its last nine after a blowout loss of at least five goals in the previous contest.  The Flyers are also 14-5 (+10 games on the moneyline) in their last 19 revenging a loss to an opponent.  Meanwhile, the Canadiens are a poor 6-11 this season (and 16-32 the past 3 seasons (-15 games on the moneyline)) when matched up against the league's best teams (which outscore their foes by 0.5 goals per game).  Take Philadelphia.  As always, good luck...Al McMordie.
