Great home opener....Nice big screen tribute to Wayne Simmons(even though he's a Devil now LOL). Flyers goals by Provy, Hayes, Coots and TK with solid goaltending by Hart including a highlight reel glove save while the devils had a 2 min. 2 man power play. The crowd cheered long and loud - something they haven't been able to do much of these past few years. Final result Flyers 4 Devils 0.... That's right Hart notched his 1st NHL shutout !!!
Not doing so well on their western swing. Dominated by the Canucks but lucky enough to tie it(lost the S/O). Last night again dominated by the Flames - Elliot got his first start and had a decent game(can't say the same for the rest of the team - turnover central was back) despite allowing 2 goals. Back at it tonight at Edmonton(a homecoming for Carter Hart) .... hoping the team that played the Devils shows up !!!
Well the boys have put together a nice little 3 game win streak with Elliot in net. Scoring 4 unanswered goals in the 3rd period last night to take a 7-4 win over the Blue Jackets. I believe Hart get the net in Today's game, hopefully the team isn't out of gas.
Pitiful play against both the Islanders and the Pigeons. Easily pushed off pucks in their both zones. I could almost let the Islanders game slide since it was back to back.... BUT the Pigeons game was downright UGLY... might have been a game if they had called up the ECHL Reading Royals ... There sure weren't any NHL players in Orange + Black.... Have to see who shows up on Friday against another division rival the Devils.
Who is this team... suddenly winning shootouts.... LOL. I was pleasantly surprised that the boys played so well in the 1st+2nd periods - 3rd period not so much(but it was back to back). Several other great chances that didn't find the back of Bostons net. I do like that they seem to be more physical here lately taking the body instead of trying weak stick checks.
