Gagne a game-time decision for Game 4

PHILADELPHIA -- Injured Flyers forward Simon Gagne said on Friday morning that he will be a game-time decision for Game 4 of the Eastern Conference semifinals at the Wachovia Center. Gagne broke his toe blocking a shot on April 20 in the quarterfinals against New Jersey and had surgery on the toe April 23. He was expected to miss three weeks, which makes the possibility of playing in Game 4 an early return. The Flyers face playoff elimination at the hands of the Bruins as they trail the series 3-0.

 

"It is hard to say right now, I'd say it is a game-time decision. I will see how I feel in warmups and then we will decide," Gagne said. "To be honest with you, I was looking toward Game 5 or maybe the end of the series, but I started to actually feel pretty good before Game 3. ... It is the playoffs and right now we are against the wall and we have to win and we are not allowed to lose any games. It is right there and if I feel...

Wilbon on D&C: C's win 'league changing'

The much anticipated Game 3 between the Celtics and Cavaliers could change the balance of the league, according to ESPN's Michael Wilbon, if the Celtics were able to come out on top and take the series lead. 

 

"This is one of those games that can swing a league," Wilbon told Dennis & Callahan on Friday. "If Boston goes up 3-1, by winning tonight and Sunday — and maybe we will be laughing at this because Cleveland might put a hammer down tonight — but if Boston goes up 3-1, you are looking at the balance of the league changing. You are looking at the rearranging of a league potentially. I don't want to get too carried away, but I think that's at least in play."

 

Rasheed Wallace finally busted out with 17 points in Game 2, and Wilbon said Wallace could be a factor in tonight's contest.

 

"Role players play well at home," he said. "They don't play well...

Melrose on D&C: B's playing best in NHL

ESPN hockey analyst Barry Melrose joined Dennis & Callahan Friday morning to talk about the Bruins-Flyers series. "I think Boston, of the eight teams left, are playing the best playoff hockey," Melrose said. "They're giving up nothing. They're playing a great brand of hockey right now."

 

Melrose said the Bruins' discipline in coach Claude Julien's system has been great to watch. "I love the way Boston's playing," he said. "When they give up a shot, it's from the side. Tuukka Rask is playing great. No outnumbered chances -- no 3-on-2s, 2-on-1s. Boston's playing the system to a 'T.' But again, are they going to be able to score? [David] Krejci's out, [Marco] Sturm's out, [Marc] Savard's probably about 75-80 percent. It's been amazing how they've been able to score with all these guys out of the lineup."

 

Melrose said that if the Bruins take command in this game the Flyers will...
