The question now: Is their bullpen good enough to win it all?
That would be the Flyers, not the Phillies. A team with championship aspirations for most of the season is suddenly faced with the issue that has undone this franchise too many times. In just the second game of the Stanley Cup tournament, the goalie was benched.
Sergei Bobrovsky looked overwhelmed in allowing three goals in the first seven shots he faced against the Buffalo Sabres Saturday. Brian Boucher came on in relief, restored order and gave his team a chance to win a game it absolutely had to win.
So now what?
Back to Bobrovsky. It is the only thing that makes sense.
