The Phillies Clinch a Berth!

English: Danny Brière during pre-game warmup a...

So the Flyers clinch a playoff berth after losing 10 in a row after the all star break. The team has been crushed with injuries to players such as Hatcher, Gagne, and now even Briere. Briere was a late scratch from tonight's game, and the Flyers elevated their play to make up for Danny not being there. The Flyers scored two goals in the third period to take a three nothing lead, and then Marty Brodeur was pulled. The Flyers faithful chanted Marty, Marty, Marty for the next five or ten minutes or so....but they say it was for Marty Biron, who happens the be the Flyers goaltender who shut out the Devils tonight. The Flyers faithful watched the Panthers shock the Hurricanes, which gave their hometown Flyers a playoff berth. The atmosphere was great tonight, and look for the Flyers to do big things come playoff time.
