    I give the Blues credit. They understood they didn't have a shot at winning the Cup and didn't bother going for it, getting assets instead.

    I just wonder if St. Louis & Philthydelphia are going to wake up one day and realize they're never, ever going to have a chance to win if Brian Elliott, Jake Allen or Michal Neuvirth are your starting goalies.

    Elite goaltending will hide a lot of a bad team's flaws and make them look a lot better than they truly are. That's why Carey Price is the single most important player to his team in the NHL.

    Yeah Anderson was the reason they even won 3 games. But he's inconsistent.

    Fair point, they went for it one year with Miller but failed.

    I would give them credit too but so far they have nothing to show for.

    If he doesn’t come as advertised, goaltending in Philly is never a given...Flyers are in big trouble.

    Their far from in big trouble. Tons of talent on that team and there is no way you fully blame goaltending on this loss .

    Voracek , Giroux and Simmonds ..... = 1 total playoff goal

    That's only for the first round... Rounds 2-7 are based on the standings.

    You can count on them to carry a lead into the third period of game 7 against to bruins and suddenly forget how to hockey.

    Too bad the Bruins won. Hopefully they lose against Tampa.

    Losing game 7 while leading after 2 periods is the most Leaf way to lose series ever.
