Hockey Hilarity: NHL-Network’s Giving Out Free Goals!

The Philadelphia Flyers finally won a game! Not only that, they beat the New York Rangers and did it by simply outworking a team they couldn’t outwork at any point last year.

Flyers GM Paul Holmgren just updated the status of forward Scott Hartnell, telling multiple members of the mainstream media that he will miss anywhere from 4-to-8 weeks with a broken bone in his left foot. At issue is the metatarsal, one of a series of bones mid-foot which lead up to the toes. The potentially devastating news came as the Orange and Black try to prevent a franchise-worst 0-4-0 start to the season at home against the New York Rangers. The trade watch is now on, as Holmgren admitted to a pool of reporters.

Poll: What is your biggest concern about the Flyers at the moment?

With an 0-3 record to begin the year, there is a fair amount to potentially be worried about. The Flyers have managed only three goals for and eleven goals against in those three games. Both the power play and penalty kill have seen their struggles. Now, with Hartnell’s injury, (and Schenn’s suspension, in the short term), the depth will be tested.
