(Disclaimer: I saw nary a second of this game).
This is the best the Flyers have looked all year.
After the jump, questions answered and your comment of the night.
1. Michael Leighton's first game since... you know. What's the deal? Sam Carchidi of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports that Michael Leighton allowed four goals in this game.
2. Kimmo Timonen is playing, but you know he's not 100 percent. Does he show his injury? You jackasses didn't mention Kimmo Timonen's performance once in the comments, so who the hell knows?
3. Both teams were completely obliterated in their last games. Extra jump off the start? If by jump you mean a failure to close a five-hole, then yes, it started with jump. I read Martin Brodeur's autobiography, and he posits that jumping is not a sound method of goaltending. He did, however, have great things to say about Red Lobster.
4. Defensively, the Flyers have been terrible across the board in the last two. Any improvement in that department? According to my Algebra II teacher Mr. Evans, 4 < 6. Therefore, we have improvement in that department.
Comment of the Night:
To the tune of Auld Lang Syne
May Michael Leighton’s legs be shut
and the puck not go through the fiive
For puck’s sake Michael close your legs
now let’s get this fucker tied --KreiderDesigns
True story : Auld Lang Syne is one of the two songs I can play on piano.
I've had December 31st marked on my calendar for so long. Not because it's New Year's Eve, but because I thought I was going to get to watch Danny Syvret.
