After a tough first half of the season, the Flyers kept us on the emotional rollercoaster all the way until early April. It took the full season, 5 extra minutes, Giroux scoring, and Boucher making the save, just to qualify for the Playoffs. Each and every game the Flyers played, we showed up, (even if some players took the night off) and every time we got together we commented. A lot!
During this period of time the number of comments increased dramatically as more friends made BSH their home for all things Flyers. The growing community made the task of picking the CotN a lot tougher. Travis, Ben and Geoff, were up to the challenge, but the playoff bump that was about to occur must have made the task almost impossible. (Those comments will be posted next week)
After the bump is part 2 of the Flyers 09/10 season expressed through the words of the fans Comment of the Night.

I really dislike Kovalev, and the majority of our team, today.

First the good news:The Flyers outshot Washington 17-5 in the second period…
…then the bad news…..but got outshot 23-7 in the others periods (and OT) in a game ...
…and the bad news….. screw it, Im not pasting the rest of the AP quote.

Cheers for Mike Maclean and the Cannon

I cannot wait to see Lavvy go ballistic on the refs.

Feb 1st W 3-0 Flames
i was gonna say it’s weird seeing a #2 that can skate.

Feb 3rd L 1-0 Oilers
So what’s the scoop on Danny Syvret?

The Olympics, so I can go two weeks without having to watch a boring, frustrating game.

Feb 8th W 2-1 Devils
Why did that loud horn go off all of a sudden? Why are some of the fans standing and cheering? I don’t get it…
Feb 10th W 3-2 Devils
Gagne has jump, at least… execution lacking, but there’s some life

At this rate the McDonald’s Power Play Jackpot will be re-named "Who Wants to be a Millionaire."

We are now changing the Philadelphia Flyers to the Philadelphia Luftwaffe.
March 2nd W 7-2 Tampa
Thank you I’ll be here all week, try the schnitzel.
March 3rd L 7-4 Panthers
Nothing worse than looking forward to a game all day, and this is what you get….
March 5th L 3-2 Sabres
I feel like I’m all alone in my position of feeling hot and cold over Leighton’s performance last night. There were definitely some very good decisions and some very bad ones, so I can’t really condemn him nor can I say I’m happy. I wasn’t home so I hadn’t read any stuff before the game, and I admit when I was listening to the first period on the radio I ran off a few expletives when I heard Leighton was starting, I honestly felt at the time that they should have started Boosh. He wasn’t looking too bad at the end of Tuesday’s game once he started to get his stuff together, and I want him to play a full game before he gets rusty again so we can actually evaluate where he is.
March 7th W 3-1 Leafs
Maybe it’s just me, but I would expect that if someone were planning to hold up a sign asking a player to marry them, they would at least put in the effort of making a real sign….
March 9th W 3-2 Islanders
I swear, if the Islanders ever beat the Flyers, the sky is probably going to turn purple like on Lost when they didn't push the button.
March 11th L 5-1 Bruins
Because Ben, Travis, and Geoff were at the game and they did a recap by committee.
Here are the CotN from each:
Travis' take: ah, screw it. Ms. Benes, a little help please? What was your opinion on tonight's game?
Ben's take: I also saw what appeared to be a Danny Syvret practice jersey, which somebody theoretically paid money for. Or they stole it out of his bag, one of the two.
Geoffs’ take: Like I said, this is short, but we're all tired and I'm sick.
March 13th W 3-2 Hawks
W T F!!!! OH MY GOSH! AWESOME!
March 14th L 3-1 Rangers
Oh jeez. Gotta be careful not to overwork him.
-Ben Feldman, on Cote's heavy first period workload
March 16th L 4-3 Nashville
Hey, I was expecting him to pass.
-KreiderDesigns, on Richards' shootout move
March 18th W 3-2 Dallas
One thing I miss about Leighton: Not being able to smother shots resulted in much faster games.
March 20th L 5-2 Thrashers
I saw a lot of anger on the Internets (not necessarily here) about Brian Boucher's play, but he was left out to dry literally all night long. It was pathetic.
March 21st L 3-1 Thrashers
The Flyers are moving backward. They also lost 5-2 in Atlanta on Sunday, and have lost all four times to the Thrashers this season, after a 14-game winning streak.
March 23rd L 2-0 Senators
Keep breathing man, before you kill the dog or something
March 25th L 4-3 Wild
OK for serious, WHAT THE ****!?!?
TV is taken up, flyers up 3-1, tv is mine, 3-2
Girlfriend calls, 3-2 we have chances, we hang up, 3-3
**** YOU FLYERS!? WHAT THE HELL DID DO TO YOU!?
March 27th L 4-1 Pittsburgh
Has Steigerwald made any jokes about plane crashes yet?
March 28th W 5-1 Devils
There are good odd-man rushes now? Is that when the offense is bringing the goalie pizza or something?
April 1st L 6-4 Islanders
To quote the MSG announcer, "Does anybody want this playoff spot?"

Pierre is in that little box with Coatesy. I want to see them fight.
