Liveblog: Devils beat Flyers 3-1, advance to Eastern Conference final

Devils celebrate

Say goodnight, Kate Smith.
God bless parity.

Another top seed is out of the playoffs.

Ilya Kovalchuk, who is having great playoffs, fired a rocket past Ilya Bryzgalov on a New Jersey power play to seal the deal in five games.
With Claude Giroux watching from the stands, Philadelphia couldn’t generate enough offence to beat New Jersey’s rock-solid defensive system.
Bottom line: New Jersey’s best outplayed Philadelphia’s.
Jaromir Jagr was invisible in the series, as were James Van Riemsdyk and Wayne Simmonds.
In the end, the Flyers may have been hurt by their easy conquest of the Penguins.
The Devils had a tough series against Florida, going to OT in the seventh game in the Panthers building.
They were battle-tested, and ready to advance.

BTW, Bryzgalov is signed until 2020.

And Phoenix, his old team, has Mike Smith.

The Flyers join the Bruins, Penguins, Canucks, Blues, Blackhawks, Red Wings and Predators as upset victims.

Here’s a wild stat: the Devils are the highest-scoring regular-season team still alive in the playoffs.

Another one: Only three of 25 highest salaried players are still active in playoffs: Brad Richards, Marion Gaborik and Alexander Ovechkin.

    Any chance we make a pitch for Zach???

    • habstrinifan says:


    • Malreg says:

      There will probably be at least 20 teams making a pitch for him.

      Speculation is he and Suter will sign with the same team. Apparently they are both very good friends.

      • HFX-HabFan says:

        Ken Holland couldn’t be happier

      • LizardKing12 says:

        If Bergevin wanted to get really bold he would dump Gomez in the minors, and find a way to get rid of Kaberle and Bourque. That would free up 14.8 mil which could be given to Suter and Parise. I’m not sure they would go for it but we would have a really solid team.
        Top 6: Top 4 D:
        Pacs DD Cole PK Gorges
        Parise Pleks Gio Markov Suter

  2. EasternOntarioHabsFan says:

    Crawford anyone??
    any opinions at all would be greatly appreciated.

    • habsfan0 says:


    • habstrinifan says:

      OK by me.

      But I would drive to MTL and sculpt a statue of Marc Bergevin if he manages the triumvirate of Roy/Carbonneau/Robinson…. I could also reserve your spot on the parade route were that to happen. We gonna have a parade one way or another… cause we have the coolest bench/GM or cause we won the Cup.

    • LizardKing12 says:

      Not a big fan. He’s missed the playoffs 5 years in a row and it isn’t like he had terrible teams. Vancouver was in a bit of turmoil the last year he was there. LA had some talent though with Kopitar, Frolov, Cammy, Visnovsky and Blake and the Stars had Richards, Ribs, Neal, Ericsson, Jamie Benn and Brenden Morrow.

      Sure they weren’t powerhouse teams but they were definitely playoff worthy. To me it just seems like he doesn’t get the best out of his players. If he is hired though I will support him until he proves otherwise.

    • Un Canadien errant says:

      If we’re going to go with middling choices, let’s hire former Montrรฉal greats. Patrick Roy, Jacques Lemaire, Guy Carbonneau, Larry Robinson, Guy Lapointe, Kirk Muller, we have a lot of candidates who can fill the roles.

      How about it NHL? No fighting, just hockey?

    CBC coast to coast coming up, I would love to see this segment with them all talking after hits of helium

  8. LizardKing12 says:

    It feels like Philly is doomed to never have a good goalie ever again. Bryzgalov was a solid goalie in Phoenix but has been below average all year for the Flyers. Seems like even King Henrik wouldn’t post a SV% above .900 in Philly!

  9. Mattyleg says:

    Flyers wingers are breaking into the zone acres apart.
    They need to close the gap between them because their passes are too long – easy for Brody to predict, and lots can go wrong in such a long pass.

    —Hope Springs Eternal—

  10. otter649 says:

    Bryzalgov pulls a (junior) MA Fleury move for a goal……

  11. Mattyleg says:

    Hilarious. That penalty was for the least offensive thing that the Flyers have done to the rules of hockey this game.

  12. Max_a_million says:

    Pelle Lindbergh was good yes!

    • HabinBurlington says:

      Pelle was a stud, was a shame how that ended. In my opinion the last great Philly goalie, I never thought Hextall was great, but I suppose was effective. (Granted he had that one great Cup run)

  26. canada4l says:

    Looks like the refs are “letting them play hockey”. I never understood this phrase as hockey has rules and by not inforcing them it no longer is hockey. While they are at letting the Flyers goon it up why not stop calling off sides and icings. They are “letting them play hockey.”

    Did I just see two players leave their feet to hit one? With no call?

  28. Max_a_million says:

    I love how the Leafs can’t win in this Dudley situation. If he stays they have their enemies head scout in their midst as a spy, and if he goes so goes all of their insight to their enemy.

    Love how this one turned. I like that Bergevin, has successful friends looking to follow him! Bodes well for us!

  29. ZepFan2 says:

    Clean shot? Umm, no, he left his feet.

  30. Mattyleg says:

    This is what makes the NHL suck:

    Volchenkov drills Schenn with a perfectly legal hit when Schenn had the puck; he gets completely pasted by imbeciles when he no longer has the puck.

    How is that legal?

    The NHL needs to start enforcing its own rules.

    —Hope Springs Eternal—

  31. canada4l says:

    So how many games for that charge? He clearly left his feet. Not sure if he hit him in the head.

  32. Stormin says:

    Volchenkov just joined Schenn, courtesy of Rinaldo

  33. HabinBurlington says:

    Flyers playing Flyers hockey now, the Philistines must be happy.

  34. frontenac1 says:

    But Quenneville has got a french name. Maybe he could just fake the lingo a bit.He could get away with it.

  35. Mattyleg says:

    Is it just me, or has Jagr completely disappeared this series?

    —Hope Springs Eternal—

    • HabinBurlington says:

      Agree 100%, I think the longer sched. compared to KHL and his age is now catching up. He has been wonderful for Philly all year, but seems to me he has run out of steam. (You do realize he will now have 4 point night and make us look like the idiots we are eh Matty?)

      • Mattyleg says:

        Actually, maybe that’s why I did that.
        Subconscious, you know..?

        Yeah, I’m sure it’s the age thing catching up with him.

        —Hope Springs Eternal—

  36. Stormin says:

    Schenn got belted back into Monday

  37. HabinBurlington says:

    What a hit by Volchenkov, would love if we had him and Emelin on our defense.

    • Malreg says:

      Nice hit, but Volchenkov has been terrible this playoffs. He was on the ice for almost every goal against at one point in the 1st round.

  38. frontenac1 says:

    Stormin,That’s what she said!

  39. Mattyleg says:

    My girlfriend made the most insightful observation about the Roy situation the other day.
    I said that I was on the fence about him, and she kind of went quiet, then said:
    “His problem is that he doesn’t listen. You see it in interviews, you see it on TV; he doesn’t listen to anybody. That’s why he and Tremblay had such a bad time together. Tremblay doesn’t listen either. Do you want a coach that isn’t going to listen to his players?”

    I thought about that, and she has an amazing point. He is coach, GM, and part owner so that he doesn’t have to listen to anyone but himself.

    Do you really think that he’d listen to a rookie GM who’s the same age as him? No, I didn’t think so either. A legend like Lemaire, perhaps. Otherwise, his two Stanley Cup rings are stuck in his ears…

    —Hope Springs Eternal—

    • LizardKing12 says:

      I’m on the fence about Roy for the same reason. Especially having a rookie GM I don’t think it is the right time for Roy to be named coach of the Canadiens, the risk is just too high IMO. I’m not saying he wouldn’t make a good coach, he might but he might also be a disaster due to his temperament. I’d rather not do the rookie coach thing again, especially not with a rookie GM and coming off the worst Habs season in several decades.

  40. HabinBurlington says:

    Mr. Boone given your support for the Liverpool squad, I can count on you to support my Bayern Munich squad against Chelsea? Right?

  41. L Elle says:

    Last year RDS interviewed Quenneville and encouraged him to say something in French.

    He couldn’t put two words together. OY!

  42. frontenac1 says:

    Forget about Patrick Roy,too much of an introvert. Get “Le Tigre and Bluet”behind the bench.Now you’re talkin!

  43. HabinBurlington says:

    Ron Mclean needs to stop with his pathetic attempts at segways. WTF does Tiger Woods at a golf tournament named Wells Fargo have to do with a hockey game at an arena with the same sponsor.

    Gee Ron, perhaps you could pull your head out of that rear area and realize Tiger never plays Quail Hollow well, regardless of the sponsors name.

    Sorry, but I am completely done with Mclean. Worse than Cherry IMO.

  44. Stormin says:

    Quenneville apparently failed his French oral.

  45. Stormin says:

    AK46 will be playing with the Belarus Mooseheads next year

  46. HabinBurlington says:

    Watched a clip on TSN regarding man of the hour Quenneville, I don’t know I have a sneaky suspicion that this dog still hunts. I think Bergy has something up his sleeve.

        hmmmm valid point, but my issues with Philadelphia run deeper. Funny though, as a kid my mom used to cheer for the Flyers, and I almost went down that path, thankfully Robert Frost showed me the road not taken in my family and I became a Hab fan.

        • L Elle says:

          Well at least your Mom was a hockey fan, and didn’t insist you take ballet lessons. LOL

    So Chicago and Vancouver seem to be keeping their coaches. Who’s next up?

  54. Habfan10912 says:

    Lots of rumors and some made up stuff perhaps going on with the coaching position. I’m thinking MB is keeping the search and interviews close to vest. I wouldn’t be surprised if nothing is heard until the position is filled. I think he’s probably already close. Maybe this week?


  55. habsfan0 says:

    If Flyers’ goalie Ilya Bryzgalov allows a quick goal tonight, it will be interesting to see how the Philadelphia crowd will react to him.

    Pat Hickey might want to caution Bryzgalov as to where NOT to park his car if the Flyers are eliminated tonight, particularly if Bryzgalov stinks out the joint.

    • shiram says:

      At least the Flyer’s management made sure Bryz can buy alot of replacement cars…

    • Cardiac says:

      It’s clear the only reason Philly got into the second round his because Fleury crapped the bed worst than Bryzgalov.

      I would have actually liked to see Boston vs. NJ over this…

        Still hasn’t “stole” a game yet though… Add to that his save % and GAA is worst among active playoff goalies.

      Bears are pretty common on the golf courses in Whistler. Also, two years ago we had a mother bear with a cub that would come graze where the outfield met with the woods. When I played right field I’d always sneak a look over my shoulder to check that she was still at least 50 metres away between every pitch. She never came on the field when we were playing, never paid us no mind though.

      • 24 Cups says:

        Point well taken. But the only tangible candidates that I can think of are Crawford and Quenneville.

        Is anyone afraid that this Chicago connection is going to be a bit like our last Ottawa leadership gang? Is in-breeding really that healthy?

        • HabinBurlington says:

          I have wondered that a bit Steve, but I think he is picking the good fruit from Chicago, and one can argue the fruit that got them a Cup.

          Not sure we even got the week old fruit from Ottawa, I think what we got was already rotten… That may be too hard on JM but not PG.

      3rd, 32nd and 52nd(?) sounds good to me.

      There’s also a good chance that Calgary and Nashville won’t make the playoffs next year which should help out with the 2nd rounders in 2013.

      I also find it hard to believe we can’t get another 1st rounder next year at the deadline when we auction off an asset.

      Two firsts and three seconds all in the top 44 for 2013. Me like.

        Perhaps we can sign Gaustad over the summer and deal him at the trade deadline next season…

    I still can’t believe we let Zubrus slip away. He was one of my favourite players back in the day. He’s only getting better with age also.

    • Cardiac says:

      In his best season with the Habs, he scored 42 points. And that was playing top 6 minutes. His highest career totals was when be played along side Ovie in Washington.

      The guy was a bust, and to think we traded Dr. Recchi for him.

    Hey Boone, great piece on the HNIC intro montages, that was right on, those really get you into it…

    There’s something about the marriage of image and music especially when they weren’t created as a collective piece (like those godd***ed music videos) that can really “hit you right square in the forehead” as my good buddy Gonzo used to say on the radio.

    Calling it like it is:
    Jack Edwards is a clam.
    Boston Bruins, gutless diving weasel pukes.

  73. First idiot to say FIRST!
