Will The Flyers Start Their Comeback?

from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,

Now we find out if the Flyers can do what the Sharks could not: Turn it up one more notch and not be satisfied with saying they’re in every game despite not winning them. That’s not good enough.

“These guys don’t know the meaning of the word quit,” Flyers owner Ed Snider told ESPN.com on Tuesday. “Even in [Monday] night’s game in the third period, the goalie for Chicago did a great job, but it just showed that we were prepared to come back in that game. We did fall short, but in their building, we outshot them 15-4 in the third period. I think that says a lot.”

On Wednesday night at what should be an electric Wachovia Center, we’ll find out if these never-say-die Flyers can find one more gear to what has already been a decent effort so far in these Cup finals. We wouldn’t be the slightest bit surprised if they do. Talk to observers who have been around this Flyers team, including our own ESPN.com columnist Scott Burnside, and they will tell you how amazed they are by Philadelphia’s competitive spirit.
