New Jersey looked like a dead-team-walking after its showing against the Florida Panthers, a series against a lesser team that took seven games. Philadelphia appeared to be a Stanley Cup favorite after destroying the PIttsburgh Penguins.
Now, those roles have reversed. Steve Politi of NJ.com perhaps sums it up best:
"There was a point in Game 4 where the shots were 27-7. The score was still tied at 2, thanks to a Flyers power-play and short-handed goal, but at even strength the Flyers looked so overmatched you wondered how they made the playoffs, much less knocked out the high-powered Penguins in the first round."
On a night when Martin Brodeur turned 40-years-old, he turned back the clock with another nice performance and just another win.
Politi puts it in perfect perspective:
"Here is Brodeur, one victory away from the Eastern Conference Finals, making a glove save on Father Time’s breakaway."
Indeed, New Jersey will look to move on Tuesday night in front of a hostile Philly crowd at the Wells Fargo Center.
