During the Boston series, when the Flyers were down and a comeback seemed unlikely, I remember one of the ESPN analysts saying it didn't feel like the Bruins were up 3-0 - even though they were. That's sort of how I feel now. The Flyers are down 2-0, but it feels like such a close series.

That said, adjustments can and should be made. What do the Flyers need to change to get back into this series?

I would not change anything. They are playing well and matching up well. Coming back to Philly is going to be a huge advantage in Game 3. The fans elevate the game to another level. The Blackhawks earned the two wins. It was not easy for them. We just need the puck to bounce our way a few times - and bingo!

I just love the way the Flyers are playing.

I loved how they were playing, too - except for that 28-second stretch Monday night. What did you think, Bernie, about that second goal?

As for the second goal, you have to give the Blackhawks credit. The shooter picked a small spot top left and used the defenseman as a screen.

The games have been close, no doubt about it. Either of the first two could have gone the other way and playing in front of the home crowd might help. Still, there must be some adjustment to be made. Prior to Game 2, for instance, they put Carcillo back in his normal role.

But let's forget about the changes for a second. If you're Laviolette, what would you tell the players to keep their minds right?

I cannot speak for the coach. But I know he has done a great job so far this year keeping the team's mind-set focused on winning.
