6-Unit Play. #006. Take Philadelphia vs Columbus (Thursday, December 6, 7:05 p.m.) As per this selection on the Flyers, you have a team that will be eager to impress the new regime in charge of hockey operations and a team that is well rested after beating their in-state rival, Pittsburgh, 4-2 on December 1. While it hasn't been all sunshine and rainbows for the Flyers, they know it's put up or shut up? time before the coach loses his job or a trade is made to shake up the entire roster. We believe the Flyers have received the message loud and clear and will come out tonight in from of their home fans and put in a dominant performance. Their opponent, Columbus, well, they have issues, to say the least. They blew a 4-1 lead in the second period of their last game and ended up losing 9-6. Not sure, I've seen a game like that before, but the problem I have with it is that their coach let their Vezina caliber goalie, Bobrovsky, in net for 8 of those goals. He refused to pull him and I think that's a huge mistake. Goalies are fragile beings and once you mess with the psyche of a goalie, you are likely in for a world of hurt. The Jackets won't score 6 goals against, and will likely suffer the consequences of emotional fatigue after that wild game just two nights ago. The Jackets are just 3-8 in their last 11 vs the Metro division and 1-4 in their last 5 when their opponent allows 2 goals or less in their previous game. The Flyers are 4-1 in their last 5 when their opponent gives up 5 more goals in their previous game and the home team has won 20 of 27 meetings in this series. The Flyers are the more desperate team and they will get the job done tonight.
