Former Flyers Watch, Week 8: Sharp & ‘Zus Have An Exciting Game 4, Still No Goals For Jagr

Chicago’s Michal Handzus scores a shorthanded goal in the first period of Game 4 against Boston. Read on to learn how his fellow former Flyers have fared in the Stanley Cup Finals.

Chicago Blackhawks vs. Boston Bruins – Series tied 2-2

Patrick Sharp:

Week 2: Sharp’s point-less streak ended in Game 2, and he’s scored two goals in his last three games, including a power play goal in Game 4. He currently has 16 points in 20 playoff games.

Week 1: It seems like Patrick Sharp’s postseason prowess has lost some of its edge, as he has now gone four games without recording a point. He won 80% of his faceoffs in Game 1 against the Bruins, and took eight shots, though he failed to capitalize on any.

Dan Carcillo:

Week 2: In Games 2-4, Carcillo continued to be a healthy scratch.

Week 1: Carcillo still remains a healthy scratch for the Blackhawks. He has not played since May 18 against Detroit.

Michal Handzus:

Week 2: Handzus has two points in his last three games, with a shorthanded goal in Game 4. He did not have a good Game 3, taking just one shot and not having any success in the faceoff circle, but bounced back with that shorty in Game 4.

Week 1: ‘Zus played a couple of shifts short of thirty minutes in Game 1 against Boston, but did not make a difference on the scoresheet. He took one shot on goal, won half of his faceoffs, and was -1 on the night.

Ray Emery:

Week 2: Still no Emery for the Blackhawks, and considering Crawford’s record this postseason, it’s 99.9% likely that Razor Ray will not take the ice for the Hawks until sometime next season.

Week 1: Emery remains as Corey Crawford’s backup, having not seen any ice time since the regular season.

Jaromir Jagr:

Week 2: Jagr has recorded three points in his last two games against the Blackhawks, including two in Game 4. Through 20 playoff games, he’s still yet to score a goal. The savvy vet also hasn’t scored a goal in the Stanley Cup Finals since June 1, 1992 — but that’s only a span of four contests despite a gap of 21 years.

Week 1: In just under 34 minutes of ice time in Game 1 against Chicago, Jagr only took one shot on goal and was unsuccessful. That makes two games in a row that he has failed to record a point, after two consecutive games of doing so.

Dennis Seidenberg:

Week 2: Despite not recording a goal in Games 2-4 against Chicago, Seidenberg remains an important component of his Bruins team. With a total of 13 hits in those three games, and his team-leading ice time in Games 4 and 5, it’s easy to see that Seidenberg is incredibly valuable in all situations.

Week 1: Seidenberg led all skaters in ice time in the first game against the Blackhawks at 48:36 minutes, including 3:18 minutes on the penalty kill. He attempted one shot on goal in 57 shifts, but though he did not score, he continues to be a big factor for the Bruins.
