The only thing I can say for this series is I don't expect it to be another 3-0 comeback, and I don't expect to be happy about who wins. Flyers vs. Bruins -- it's just two historic Islanders foes going at it.
Whenever this Flyers' run ends this year, I just figure it will be in part due to faulty goaltending, since that's been a staple since Ron Hextall stopped being good. But leave your own theory in the poll and comments.
Meanwhile, if you're looking for other tournament hockey, the IIHF World Championships are underway, and theirs a bevy of links at their site to follow your hockey powerhouse or obscure country of choice.TV/Schedule

Last round, unfortunately I was among our majority wrongly picking the Sabres to keep the Flyers from getting this far. But at least I got the Bruins right in their series with the Hockey Club from Monreal.
I've got a festival to get to so will miss today's games, but:
Head Says: Flyers in 6.
Heart Says: They can all rot.
