Flyers have been here before
Flyers coach Peter Laviolette said he doesn't see any Game 7-related panic in his team. He credits some of that to the experience from Sunday.

"We've already been here," he said in his pre-game media briefing. "We were already faced with this last game. I know it's a Game 7, but our Game 7 was Game 6. We've already got a little bit of experience."

He also said he puts no stock in any momentum that might have been gained from the 4-3 overtime win in Game 6.

"Momentum can be the death of you," he said. "Give me a heavy dose of desperation and I'll be happy."

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
