“There’s been plenty of times where we’ve been down in the third period and we come back like that.  And I definitely think we’re going to pull it off tonight,” she said.

Flyers’ legend Bob “The Hound” Kelly says the Flyers can survive if they get off to a good start.

“It’s our building, it’s our fans,” he tells KYW Newsradio.  “We win here, we go to Game Seven, and anything happens up there in New York.  A bad bounce can hurt you.  We need to get the lead for a change.  We’ve started the series off always behind the eight-ball.”

And Flyers’ playoff tickets — still available?  The team says yes: tickets for tonight remain.
