The Flyers qualified for the playoffs by beating the Rangers in the shootout of the regular-season finale. They then kept their season alive with three straight must-wins over the Bruins.

So tonight, while the Bruins are facing elimination for the first time this season, the Flyers are approaching the showdown like it's their fifth Game 7.

"We're in a familiar spot," Peter Laviolette said. "It really is our fifth time that we've been faced with elimination. I feel like we're ready for this. The message hasn't changed from Day 1 since I've been here to where we are right now. Everything stays the same. Meetings stay the same. The message stays the same. What's expected is the same. It's important that we got out and do what we've been doing, because since Christmas time, it's found us a lot of success. When you start mentioning Game 7, there's this hype and there's this buildup because somebody's headed home. We've been faced with that for a while."
