Philadelphia Flyers: Robert Esche suddenly went mute once the playoffs started and with his scruffy beard he easily fit the nickname "Silent Bob." After the Flyers goalie helped Philadelphia dispatch two of the most successful active goalies, Martin Brodeur and Ed Belfour, in the first two rounds of the playoffs, Esche's results are speaking loudly for him.

Tampa Bay Lightning: Tampa Bay assistant coach Craig Ramsay isn't bent on revenge in the Eastern Conference finals against the Flyers, who he coached for just under two seasons. "I had a great time there. That's what I choose to remember," Ramsay told the St. Petersburg Times.

Calgary Flames: Calgary head coach and GM Darryl Sutter doesn't want to hear anymore revenge talk, either. Fired by the Sharks in the middle of last season, Sutter has rebounded nicely in leading the Flames to the West finals against his old club. But he just wants to look ahead.
