'Ruff made Barber look like an amateur. Changing lines on the fly, he got most of the matchups he desired. He assembled a true checking line (Curtis Brown, Vaclav Varada and Erik Rasmussen or Vladimir Tsyplakov) after spreading those duties around during the season. They kept the Flyers' stars in check. Brown scored an OT winner and Rasmussen set up another.'
