The Philadelphia Flyers battled back tonight. They deserved to tie the game 2-2. They also deserved to lose. We let off the gas in the third period and they pressed hard just long enough to get back in it. Our boys then promptly did what Champions do…get the damn momentum back. The Flyers aren’t going to win anything special with Ray Emery in net.
There was a time when “former” Kings just kicked our asses. Every team probably has that but it felt disproportionate. Jeff Carter and Justin Williams scoring goals 1 and 2 was special sweet.
Trevor Lewis had a rare miscue. RARE.
That first goal against Quick…meh. But he was otherwise awesome.
The goal they called back…fuck the NHL Zebras. I am starting to think incompetence is a damn requirement to wear the stripes. Where do they get these pricks?
Interviewer: “Are you a total fucking idiot?”
Candidate: “Oh, yes sir. One of the worst.”
Interviewer: “How are your phantom call skills? Can you blow the whistle and call a penalty when nothing actually occurred?”
Candidate: “That is my greatest strength, sir”
That is one loud building and they have some rabid fans. I hear they are also pretty manic, not the even keeled and unemotional cats Surly and I are.
I still love Marion Gaborik and the chemistry he is developing. We haven’t even scratched the surface of that line’s potential.
