Fedotenko scores in overtime, gives Philly improbable two points over Caps

  Ruslan Fedotenko beat Braden Holtby in overtime to give the Philadelphia Flyers a 5-4 win in front of the home crowd tonight.

Hockey Hilarity: Sergei SpongeBob Bobrovsky is really good

Friday funnies brought to you straight from hockey’s own players, media personnel, and broadcast botches. We’ll be mucking it up every week right here, examining puck ups, puns, tweets, and more! So, what’s funny this week in hockey is that the Philadelphia Flyers really stink and that their goaltending, aside  from the first couple of months from Ilya Bryzgalov has been pretty meh. Anyway, there was this kid, once upon a time, that they picked up.
