Bring on the Flyers
The Canadiens and Flyers are locking horns in the playoffs for the fifth time in their heated rivalry and for the first time in nearly 20 years. Not since the spring of 1989 have Montreal and Philadelphia squared off during the postseason; in their last meeting, Guy Carbonneau and Bob Gainey teamed up to sink the Flyers in six games to advance to the Stanley Cup Final.
