Little Danny Briere Leading Flyers

from Roy MacGregor of the Globe and Mail,

As Patrick Roy was to the 1993 Montreal Canadiens, little Danny is becoming to the 2008 Flyers – the one who is there when it counts the most.

There are long stretches in the Wachovia Center when his presence on or off the ice goes unnoticed, but never so in Montreal, where the fifth game in this best-of-seven series will be played tomorrow night.

It is a game Montreal must win to survive. It is a game where Brière wants “to finish them off” so the Flyers can move on to the Eastern Conference final.

When the red-hot playoff scorer so much as touches the puck in Montreal’s Bell Centre, the booing is roughly the equivalent of a Quebec response to a federal power grab.
