It's Always Summer in Philadelphia Open Thread

NEWARK, NJ - MAY 06: The New Jersey Devils fans give Scott Hartnell #19 of the Philadelphia Flyers a rough time at the end of the Game Four of the Eastern Conference Semifinals during the 2012 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs at Prudential Center on May 6, 2012 in Newark, New Jersey.

Honestly, does anybody expect the Flyers to bounce back from this one? Sure, they can win four against a demoralized team whose rookie goaltender had some hip problems that had four centers inactive and Daniel Paille playing first-line minutes, but this is a little bit different. Not have Claude Giroux is bad enough, but the Flyers have been flummoxed by the Devils' forecheck and I'm reticent to believe that that's about to change just because Zac Rinaldo is back in the lineup.

Hey, if I'm wrong, I'm wrong - I wouldn't mind seeing a Flyers comeback, especially if it set up a Rangers - Flyers ECF. But I have a feeling we'll be hearing a call like this from New Jersey's radio team sometime in the next few days, if not tonight:
