Devils expecting Philly to throw the kitchen sink at them

The Flyers head into tonight’s Game 5 without Claude Giroux and the Devils know this means they’ll get everything and more thrown at them. One thing’s for sure, New Jersey is prepared for the worst.’s Tim Panaccio hears from Devils captain Zach Parise about how the Flyers will stop at nothing to force a Game 6.

“Ideally, we’d love to go there and end the series, but again we expect them to play very well, so we have to keep playing the same way we are and even better,” said Zach Parise, who has been a formidable foe at both ends of the ice against the Flyers.
“I’m sure in their minds they’re not saying they’re out of it. They’re saying they want to win one game and then seen what happens. So, every little play is going to be important next game and for the rest of the series.”

The huge thing for the Flyers is that they wouldn’t be in this position if they decided to bring the thunder right from the get-go. Now that they’ve got their backs against the wall and won’t have their top point producer means if they’re going to win tonight, it’s going to be on the ugly side. Maybe that’s just how they need it to be.

      He hurt this team sooo much with all his play in the regular season, and in the playoffs they could have definitly done without him, yupp…. I dont know why they dont just send him to the AHL, because thats how much he hurts the team… You’re an idiot.

        acting like a baby in a stanley cup playoff game and getting suspended hurts your team, especially if youre the best player on that team. it was selfish, childish, and yes it hurt his team. unless you believe they are better off without him?

    In the beginning of the series everyone looked past the devils, now everyone is looking past the flyers, let em play.

      was just about to make the same comment…Both Rangers and Flyers were looking at third round match up against each other too

    Literally throw the kitchen sink at them. Maybe they’ll wear brass knuckles under their gloves. Bryz is going to be carrying a hidden knife at the end of his stick. They’re going to have land mines buried in Bryz’s crease.

    And it still won’t be enough! Let’s go, Devils!

    He did hurt his team. They have to work twice as hard and the way the devils have been keeping them from taking shots I don’t see them winning without Giroux.

    As a Devils fan, Im not going to fall into the same trap that Flyers and Ranger fans do. Ill wait till its done to say its done. Im not putting anything past either team. One is trying to eliminate the other is trying to stay alive and they are home. Granted they gave up 10 goals in that building to the Penguins, but its still a road game, no last change, hostile environment and maybe calls go their way….Just hoping the Devils keep on track and continue to excel. LETS GO DEVILS!

    As a Flyer fan, I’ve seen this dejected attitude many a playoff seasons. They are done. Maybe not tonight (probably tonight) but they are done. Devils are the better team, they match up very well against the Flyers, and have executed perfectly. Marty isnt even playing that well and they are still winning.
