Flyers Move On

Tuesday, April 22, 2008 ·

Lupul! Lupul! Lupul! Joffrey Lupul sent the Flyers to the second round with an overtime goal when he put in the game-winner with 13:54 left. Washington had a number of scoring chances in the third period, but the Flyers did not break and held on to force overtime. Biron stepped up and made 39 saves in the game.

In the overtime period, R.J. Umberger drew a tripping penalty that lead to a Flyers penalty. The same Flyers power-play that failed to score on a full 2-minute 5 on 3 which took place during a 4-minute pp, finally put it in the net when it mattered the most.

It was an up and down game and I was definitely nervous. After last night, their was a collective "oh, please, not again" when we left the arena. However, they held on and it seems like a bounce finally went our way. Next up are the Montreal Canadiens. It is going to be a tough series and one where we'll need to play a full 60 minutes. There will be more in-depth analysis later.


A small introduction...

We Hate to Lose began in October 2007. The initial purpose of the website was to provide news updates and commentary on all four major sports teams in Philadelphia. Because of time-constraints, in April of 2009, I decided to post only on my first-love, the Philadelphia Phillies.

My name is Justin Evans and I hope you enjoy the site.
