Peter Laviolette is a big believer in postseason desparation ... and its therapeuting effects on a hockey team.

Party on, P-L: Your team is desperate again.

But there is good desperate, and there is bad desperate. And the Flyers' 7-3 loss to the Bruins in Game 1 didn't have any scent of the good kind.

The goaltenders, plural, were useless. And the defensemen were stale. But it was more than that that sent the Bruins to within three W's of the conference final. It was Boston's physical edge, goaltending edge, speed edge.

Desperate? The Flyers will be just that in Game 2 Monday.

Just leave it at that.

And check out my column in the Sunday Daily Times or on Also, I will provide a glance at Bruin David Krejci, who has a special reason to want to break the Flyers this year.

We can talk about it too ... give me a call (610-632-0975)  Sunday when I host my program from noon until 2 p.m. on 97.5-FM The Fanatic.
