Danny is a player for the Flyers whom signed one of the most lucrative free agent deals in the history of the franchise, and Chris Pronger was acquired for 2 first-round picks in the draft, and when it comes to their performances at the playoffs, well, let’s say that they are worth the cash Philadelphia paid for them, as they have helped this Eastern Conference 7th-seeded team to make it all the way through the finals.
If the Flyers are able to beat the Blackhawks, whom are currently leading the series by 2-1, then either could end up winning the Conn Smythe Trophy for MVP at the playoffs.

Pronger came up with an assist and Briere with a point at the 4-3 victory from the Flyers over Chicago on game three, which has cut the series to just one game of difference, and they might as well level things up tonight when they meet at Wachovia Center for game four, which is a must-win for the Flyers if they don’t want to fall prey of a 3-1 deficit that with the next game at Chicago, where the home team can close down in five games.
Philadelphia has won 2 series these playoffs after making a comeback from 3 straight defeats, and they certainly don’t want to be on that position again as they know how tough that task is.
The previous year of hiring Briere on a $52 million dollar 8-year contract, the Flyers had the worst record in the NHL. That was in 2007, and when you take a look at this team now, it certainly has improved thanks to the pro center that finished last season with 53 points in despite of playing mostly on the wing, but for the postseason, he returned to his accustomed center spot, where he feels more comfortable, as proven in his last season with the Sabres, when he ended up scoring an outstanding 95 points.
Even though the Blackhawks are leading this series by 2-1, it will be certainly tough for them to come up with a third victory against the Flyers as Philly is currently 8-1 playing at home during the playoffs. Duncan Keith, a defenseman for Chicago has mentioned that they feel pretty confident heading to game 4, and if they can keep playing as well as they have been doing so, they can make Philadelphia’s record 8-2.
