You Win Some, You Lose Some
Todd Zolecki has the game story of the Phils' 6-3 win over the Cardinals yesterday. His notebook lists the punishments handed down by the league in the aftermath of last week's bench-clearing brawl against the Marlins. Paul Hagen cites statistics that the Phillies need to score runs, and lots of them, to win: they are 9-2 when they score more than 3 runs, and 0-8 when they score 3 or fewer.
Tim Panaccio has the disappointing details of last night's Flyers' loss to the Maple Leafs. Phil Sheridan saw Toronto bully its way back into the series. Ed Moran says Toronto's punch landed in Philadelphia's gut. Ray Parrillo says you can throw out history, we now have a series. For the first time in the playoffs, Sam Donnellon senses doubt. Rich Hofmann talks of the Flyers' unique brand of justice following a first period crushing hit landed by Toronto's Alex Mogilny. The Toronto Star's Mark Zwolinski has Jeremy Roenick lamenting that the hit "nearly killed" his teammate since "it was from behind."
