Flyers reacting to pressure against Devils

Somewhat snippy, snippy little Flyers at practice today, the day before Game 4 with them down 2-1 to the New Jersey Devils. That's a good thing. Some guys moaning they didn't think the Devils were this good along the boards and in neutral zone (how couldn't they?), others saying the team doesn't seem to be playing with the same emotion in games as they did in the first round (how couldn't they?). Maybe they should put a cardboard cutout of Sid Crosby along their bench tomorrow night to properly fire themselves up.
But recognizing the problem is the first step toward solving it. Expect the Flyers to really come out hard tomorrow night. Whether or not that translates into successful trips through the neutral zone against the Devils is another matter.
Also, forget all those memories of comebacks against the Bruins two years ago and the like -- if the Flyers don't win Game 4 they aren't winning this series.
