Richards A Key Player In Flyers/Capitals Series

from Ryan Dixon of the Hockey News,

For Philadelphia to beat Washington, Richards has to be the engine that drives the Flyers.

But Richards embodies – albeit internally for the most part – that great fighting Philly spirit that must be unleashed to combat the assault Ovie is going to lay on the Flyers.

Richards, despite his modest size, is physical. He’s smart. Skilled. And most of all, he lives for this stuff.
