Despite a high-powered offense and respectable defense, the Philadelphia Flyers were let down by goalie Ilya Bryzgalov in the post-season. The only reason Philadelphia got to Round 2 was because Penguins goalie Marc-Andre Fleury was even worse.

So just how good are the Flyers? Today’s Puck Panel looks at the Black and Orange and explains why THN pegged them at No. 5 in the Eastern Conference this season.
