Benching goalie Carey Price couldn't spark the Montreal Canadiens. Now Danny Briere and the Philadelphia Flyers are one win away from eliminating the Eastern Conference's top-seeded team. Briere scored the winner on a rebound with 3:38 left to lift host Philadelphia to a 4-2 win last night for a 3-1 lead in the Eastern Conference semifinals. The Flyers, the worst team in the NHL last season, can eliminate the Canadiens in Game 5 on Saturday night in Montreal. "We have to find a way to get it done," Briere said.
