The morning after: Flyers @ Penguins 10.07.10

“The morning after” is a review of the previous night’s Flyers’ game which, in theory, provides a more objective perspective on the game. The Flyers have been gambling with their goaltenders for years. So, it really shouldn’t be too much of a surprise that the team decided to roll the dice and put Sergei Bobrovsky, their untested goalie prospect, in net last night against one of the most elite teams in the East, the Pittsburgh Penguins. Bobrovsky played well throughout camp and likely won the start over Brian Boucher when he played soundly in relief of Johan Backlund in a …

The morning after: Flyers @ Sabres 10.03.10

“The morning after” is a review of the previous night’s Flyers’ game which, in theory, provides a more objective perspective on the game. Overall, last night’s 9-3 loss against the Buffalo Sabres was a forgettable one but there is no reason to be worried. The Flyers only dressed a handful of players who will be on the opening night roster. Bill Guerin played his last unimpressive game of the preseason and, quite possibly, in a Flyers uniform. The local media was unanimously doubtful that Guerin would be offered a contract. Frank Seravalli hints that Andreas Nodl may make the team. …

The morning after: Flyers vs. Sabres 10.01.10

“The morning after” is a review of the previous night’s Flyers’ game which, in theory, provides a more objective perspective on the game. Well, that was the most entertaining game of the preseason. Brian Boucher looked good in net tonight, outdeuling Ryan Miller to a 3-1 Flyers victory. He’s played the toughest games of the preseason, which should be an indication that, no matter how high the organization is on Sergei Bobrovsky, Boucher will begin the season as the starting goaltender. This team makes plays that are so much prettier now. The additions of Nikolay Zherdev and Ville Leino, as …

The morning after: Flyers @ Wild 9.25.10

“The morning after” is a review of the previous night’s Flyers’ game which, in theory, provides a more objective perspective on the game. Braydon Coburn had another great game, tallying an assist and a few good scoring chances, including a smooth-skating coast-to-coast run in the third period. He finished the night a +2 and played 25 minutes. Sergei Bobrovksy — or Bodrovksy, if you’re from Minnesota — was stellar once again. The only crack in his armor was a lack of awareness that the delay of game penalty existed. Whoops. Erik Gustafsson is completely flying under the radar. He’s been …
