Flyers Playoff Hero 2010 – Round 2

Posted by Chris Shafer On April - 30 - 2010

After an incredible 4 goals in 5 first round games, Claude Giroux was one of the first round heroes.

So, as fate would have it, the four Flyers I put on my Round 1 version of Flyers Playoff Hero are the ones who were the most successful.

Claude Giroux had an incredible 4 goals in 5 games finishing with 6 points. Mike Richards had 8 points total off of 2 goals and 6 assists.

Chris Pronger and Danny Briere both finished with 2 goals and 3 assists a piece for 5 points.

Then there was Dan Carcillo who had 2 goals and an assist including an OT game-winner. How about Laperriere and Betts, the bash brothers, diving in front of absolutely everything?

And you know that Brian Boucher guy? The goalie who was picked to cost the Flyers a 2nd round appearance when dueling Martin Broduer? Boucher currently leads the NHL playoff goaltenders in GAA with 1.59 and in SV% with 0.940. Not too shabby, eh?

So who is it now?

Giroux, Richards, or Briere? Can one of the forwards take over this round against a very good Boston defense?

What about Timonen or Pronger, or even Boucher?

Here is the line-up without Carter, Gagne, and Laperriere for the start of the series.

Things could change, and Gagne could be back midway through. You decide.

Carcillo — Richards — Giroux
Hartnell — Briere -- Leino
vanRiemsdyk — Ross — Asham
Powe — Betts — Nodl
(Gagne) — (Carter) — (Laperriere)

Pronger — Carle
Timonen — Coburn
Parent — Krajicek
Bartilus — Syvret

Boucher
Backlund
(Leighton)
