“You win both games, you are tied with them, and you have a good chance to continue to battle for the playoffs. You lose both games, you are done. You are done. That's it. This is it. This is, probably, the reality. You're going to be eight points behind…and not many games are left to catch up. It would be very, very difficult. It's not going to depend only on you. It's going to depend more on other teams than you. That's how important these games (are).”
– Philadelphia goalie Ilya Bryzgalov on the importance of the Flyers' back-to-back games against New Jersey Wednesday and Friday night. Thee 11th-placed Flyers trail the seventh-placed Devils by four points.
