Voorhees, N.J. - Tues. April 10, 12:05 p.m.
I’m jacked up for the playoffs to finally start. Our flight leaves at 2:30 this afternoon and I couldn’t be more excited to get to Pittsburgh.
I think what the team needs to do is just get bonding again. That’s a big thing for the playoffs, for me at least, is just to bond with the guys and get even a little tighter than we normally are. That’s a huge thing.
I didn’t mind the practice schedule this week, playing Saturday and then Game 1 on Wednesday. I think that’s a good thing for our team. It works to our advantage, we can work on our systems and fine tune things.
With all of the emotions facing Pittsburgh, discipline will be huge. It’s always big in the playoffs, in every series. I think it works to our advantage. In the regular season, refs are usually calling the Philadelphia Flyers more than any other team.
