If the Flyers don't win on Tuesday night at the Wells Fargo Center, their season is over.
The weather isn't even nice in Sea Isle this time of year.
Their backs are now against the wall as the New York Rangers played a much more complete game on Sunday afternoon at the Garden. The Flyers found themselves trailing early yet again and, while they did battle back, Claude Giroux finally finding the back of the net proved to be too little, too late. Maybe it'll give the captain some added confidence heading into the win-or-go-home Game 6? Kind of says a lot about this series when that's the positive takeaway from the game.
Steve Mason didn't play well enough to win it. Hal Gill, Braydon Coburn and company didn't help either.
The Flyers power play simply wasn't effective enough on Sunday. In a series where it feels like the Rangers are the better team, if the Flyers want to win they have to convert on more PP chances. It felt like they avoided the Rags blocking as many shots in this one, but that didn't end up in any more scores.
The Rangers were the better team on Sunday. Is there anything you think the Flyers can do on Tuesday to turn the tides? Steve Mason needs to be better. The power play needs to be better. The Flyers need to play better pretty much all around.
If they don't, they're golfing.

What a week it's been for Chris Christie.
After watching his top-seeded Cowboys be picked apart by Aaron Rodgers in the divisional round, and being passed over for a position in Donald Trump's administration, the New Jersey governer called Eagles fans "generally angry, awful people."
He can now add being torched by Former Pennsylvania governer Ed Rendell and Philadelphia mayor Jim Kenney to that list.
"You understand how his approval rating is probably the lowest of any governer in the country," Rendell said.
(Three fire emojis).
"In retrospect, the governer's had a pretty rough couple years," Kenney said. "His presidential campaign crashed and burned, his bromance with the President-Elect didn't seem to go anywhere. I understand why he may be a little bitter or angry."

Ugh. Joel Embiid may not be perfect.
He may be buddies with Johnny Manziel, at least according to the former NFL hopeful turned party boy.
It all started when Manziel took to Twitter today to talk about doing a free autograph signing for the people of Texas.
The Twitter rant also included this strange line: "No lie.. I was a [bad word] in 2016 I'm just trying to be a good PERSON again#LostInTheSauce."
Hey, owning it is the first step to recovery, right?
Also, he knows how to get Twitter's attention:
After doing one Google search, there were reports of the pair hanging over the summer in LA. From Busted Coverage:
[Manziel] was tearing up the Warick LA lounge with his Los Angeles friends at a party that included Jerome Boateng from Bayern Munich, Kendra Wilkinson and Joel Embiid among others.
