GDT: Flyers vs. Sabres

20130120-114256.jpg

The Flyers will try to bounce back from a rough loss against the Pittsburgh Penguins by spoiling the Buffalo Sabres’ season opener at First Niagra Center at 12:30 today.

Former Sabre, Danny Briere, is expected to be out of the lineup again.

Will the Flyers have a strong first period today? Can the power play be productive? Without difficult assignments like shutting down Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin, will the Flyers be more of an offensive threat? We will find out the answers to those questions and more shortly.

    My standout star prediction for the game is Wayne Simmonds. Let’s go Wayne Train!

  • Craig F

    Bryzgalov shutout.

    Oof bad miss by Foster there.

    I feel like Doc always makes a Van Impe reference.

      Whoops Ott! Son of a gun.

      • Craig F

    Completely insane calls already being made. If that was goaltender interference then I’m a woman. (Am I a woman and I don’t know it?)

  • Craig F

    Simmonds is looking good Steve. He’s the only one that seems to want to be here so far.

      Yeah everyone looks pretty out of sync today.

  • Hal Greenblatt

    Laughton has been kind of invisible today…

    • Craig F

      Agreed.

    Per Panotch Rinaldo is out for the rest of the game. Big loss in a hard hitting game.

    Kurtis Foster already paying dividends. Hell of a shot to set up that Coots goal!

    • Craig F

      That shot was a bomb. I’m liking Luke also. Stopped that 3-on-1 earlier.

    48 goals in 48 games. Book it yo!

  • Craig F

    Maybe we should quit talking. They’ve scored two goals since we said anything haha

  • Craig F

    Bryz looked bad on that. I know the breakaway wasn’t his fault, but jesus.
