FLYERS WILL TRY TO KNOT SERIES WITH PANTHERS

The Philadelphia Flyers did it once to a Florida team. Can they do it again?

In the first round, the Flyers lost two overtime games to Tampa Bay and responded with two victories to win the series. They now have failed twice in overtime in the semifinals and trail another Sunshine State team - the Florida Panthers - 3-2 in the best-of-7 series.Game 6 is tonight in Miami, and the Flyers have run out of options.

"We have no choice but to win," said goaltender Ron Hextall, who has a 2.05 goals-against average in the playoffs. "We can't let yesterday interfere with tomorrow. ... We need to play 60 minutes a game and we have been caught playing 40 minutes."
