Forget it, Jake. It's Philly goal tending...
At the beginning of the season, I was expecting the Flyers to score a lot and get scored on a lot.
Imagine my surprise the Flyers have two good goalies at the same time. And that the first 20 games they couldn't buy a goal from anywhere.
I wasn't talking about the Flyers...this comment was about Columbus.

They use to be a sure win...now they are team to contend with.

Well, I'm not going to criticize the Flyers/Buffalo game but it demonstrates that even the worst team in hockey can beat the best on a given night.
In the playoffs, they have to do that more than once. And how many times has the number 8 seed knocked out the number 1?
But I can't hate the Penguins as a team. Given the choice of a PA team against a NY team, I'll root for Pitt.
What I don't like is the NHL trying to promote and isolate superstar like basketball as if that's the only player that matters on the ice.
And the NHL was definitely trying to do that with Crosby like they did with Gretzky.
As for Pittsburg...they only have fair weather fans...unlike the Flyers, whose fans are die hard fans...you can choose your team...as for me...I'm a die hard Flyers fan.

Oh, I'll root for the Flyer's in any given game they play.

But if the Flyer's aren't on the ice, I'll still watch a good game of hockey even though I have no preference of which team wins. It can be such a fun sport to watch (well, minus the Devil's trap defense that nearly ruined the game.)

The older i get, and maybe farther from my youth and playing ......the more i appreciate the excellence of teamwork and skill, rather than being so team-centric....lol....if that makes sense?

Hi Buffalo Boy, I feel the same way about my Flyers...it's good to talk to another person, who is Loyal to their team.

At least Tortorella is teaching the Canucks how to man up....have some backbone....i.recall their fans rioting after they pussied out at the finals....where are the worst candy-ass's, the Sedin brothers?

I'm no Canuck fan. Canuck fans were a disgrace during those riots.

Tortorella can be funny and entertaining at times in my opinion, but there are also times he lets his anger get the best of him. Coach Pat Burns(RIP) was a fave of mine when he would get angry.

Sound not good, Pat starts at 1:45...calls the other coach a f'ing POS

It does.

Is there anything sweeter than a tic-tac-toe play where the toe blasts a one time slapshot into the open net?(add another teaspoon of sugar if it PINGs off a post)

I'll still root for the Flyers team in good years and bad.
I'll root for individual players that I think deserve to be on the Cup.
And I'll root for a good hockey game.

And I take it all in stride because my year end reviews or my personal pride doesn't depend on the outcome of hockey games.

What a sort of disappointment, Wed. nites game was, as many of the current stars for the Redwings-Blackhawks were off, and getting healed up for the Olympics.....game was more of a mix of NHL and IHL's Grand Rapids versus Kalamazoo Wings.....lol....
