Winners and sinners of the Flyers' Week:
Pass: Quick redirection by Eric Wellwood at center to spring Jake Voraceks breakaway goal in Pittsburgh.
Bravado: Kimmo Timonens guarantee that if the Flyers meet the Rangers in the playoffs, its going to be a different story.
Reason to think the Flyers have better than a punchers chance against Pittsburgh: Marc-Andre Fleury holds no mystique to Philadelphia shooters.
Judgment to defuse a potentially ugly situation: Penguin assistant Tony Granato took it upon himself to confront a Peter Laviolette furious with Dan Bylsma for putting out the goons after the empty-net goal. Assistant coaches cant get a third-man-in penalty.
Area of defensive coverage: How many goals were scored by Flyer opponents this week by shooters alone in the high slot?
Goal: James Neals shot from 30 feet out at almost the half boards squeezed through Sergei Bobrovsky to put Ottawa up 3-0.
Move: Claude Giroux turned his back to Anderson in the shootout and got poke checked. Rule of thumb: Practically nothing good ever happens in hockey when you arent moving forward.
Whine: By Sidney Crosby about Brayden Schenns crosscheck, which precipitated the precipitous situation in Pittsburgh. Schenn was retaliating for some dirt done to him by Crosby during the shift. When John Tortorella went off Thursday night about the Penguins' two whining stars (Crosby and Evgeni Malkin), the Rangers coach became a Philadelphia hero, for this round anyway.
