The Ever Unoriginal ‘I’m Thankful For’ Post

Day after Thanksgiving. I’m attempting to write this with my toddler nephew on my lap, but hopefully he’ll get bored watching me type and get off and go play with his mower. Pancakes are soon to be made and I already dropped off my car to get the muffler replaced. That’s how my early hours of Thanksgiving were. Muffler pipe broke off about four hours into the drive (It’s normally about eleven hours. It was a solid twelve this time) and eighty miles away from home, there was an huge accident on the main interstate and we were rerouted off …

Flight Plan Week of 10.30.2011

The Philadelphia Flyers split their four games this week. After a big win over the Toronto Maple Leafs, the Flyers dropped a bad one to the Montreal Canadiens where they looked all sorts of out of sorts against a team who was desperate for a win. Then, the Flyers continued looking discombobulated up until the end of the second period against the Winnipeg Jets in a crazy 17-goal back-and-forth shoot out at the Wells Fargo Center, the Jets barely getting out of dodge with a win they should have had locked up. Wrapping up the week, Philadelphia was able to …

Leino Nets Winner In Overtime, Forces Game 7

The game wasn’t pretty, but it’s what the Flyers needed; a win. Lacking consistency in net, the Flyers fought back from a 3-1 deficit after the first period and found a way to force the game to overtime with a Scott Hartnell third period goal setting up the deciding marker by Ville Leino in overtime to win 5-4. Danny Briere had two goals and Mike Richards had two assists while Brian Boucher got the win making 24 saves on 25 shots after relieving Michael Leighton to start the second period.   Sunday’s game started off eerily similar to Friday’s Game 5. Two …

Boucher Comes Up Big, Flyers Win 4-2

When a player gets injured, somebody has an opportunity to step up and fill in. Tonight, that somebody was Nikolay Zherdev. Stepping in for Andreas Nodl, Zherdev netted the game-winning goal in a Flyers’ 4-2 win in Game 3 which gave the visitors a 2-1 series lead. Jeff Carter and Kimmo Timonen also hit the net as Philly snapped a five-game playoff losing streak in upstate New York. Nathan Gerbe and Drew Stafford scored, Marc-Andre Gragnani picked up two assists and Ryan Miller had 22 saves on 25 shots for Buffalo in the loss. One of the Flyers’ biggest weaknesses so far in the …

Flyers Drop Fifth Straight To Buffalo In Overtime

Eight days into April and the Flyers are still looking for their first win of the month after Thomas Vanek scored an overtime goal to give Buffalo a 4-3 win. Nathan Gerbe netted two as Ryan Miller stepped in for Jhonas Enroth to start the third period as the Flyers dropped their fifth straight game. Both Scott Hartnell and Danny Briere had a goal and an assist in the loss as Sergei Bobrovsky made 25 saves on 29 shots. For the fourth straight game the Flyers scored the opening goal. This time, it was a one-timer from Scott Hartnell that …
