The Canadiens had a much better run in the playoffs than expected. They beat the Penguins in four games in the play in round and were able to play with the Flyers the entire series to the tune of a six game series. Carey Price did what everyone was scared of, he stole a series from a better team. Price played so well he kept his team in the Flyers series much longer than expected. Hell I had the Flyers winning the series in four games in my Stanley Cup bracket. The Canadiens played well, but the offense of the Flyers and the goaltending of Carter Hart was too much for the Canadiens to handle.
The Flyers Disney movie playoff run continues after winning the series 4-2. The Flyers were the better team. No one expected the Canadiens to get past the Penguins, but they did, and the Canadiens played this series much closer than anyone expected as well. The Flyers played a great series. Carter Harts back to back shutouts were pivotal points in the Flyers success. Pretty easy to win games if the other team doesn’t score a single goal don’t you think. The Flyers were expected by most to move on to the second round and that’s exactly what they did.
