What the hell? Flyers lose to Jets, 9-8, and I can't think of a good headline

True story: All of these pucks went in the net during the game tonight.


PHILADELPHIA -- There are really no words to describe tonight's 9-8 loss to the Winnipeg Jets. We could talk about the team having no defense or coming back from a huge four goal deficit, but there's no sense. Tonight's game was utterly incomprehensible and there's just no sense in doing that.

So instead, we're going to tell the story of the game through comments left in our game thread. All the comments below are in chronological order from start to finish. Enjoy.

hello how is everyone's evening so far?

Not bad thanks. Ready for another round tonight. you?

Not sure I can handle a loss to the Jets. Who's in goal?

That didn't take long.

There is absolutely no way they call this a goal.

no goal

GOAL!!!!!!

Now THIS team I recognize...

It's the team that shows up in front of Bob.

Lets hope they remember games actually last 60 minutes this time.

If it wasn't for bad luck...we wouldn't have no luck at all.

What's up with all these unfavorable bounces?

How many more shitty goals can we give up?

I hope they buckle down and get it together; otherwise my hope that the curse would end with the team relocating to Winnipeg will start to look like a pipe dream

What in the wide, wide world of sports is going on here?

Talbot hurt.

We're not done. It's just 3-1. And we are going to win this game.

When does it stop being unlucky deflection and start being bad defensive philosophy?

COTN Should go to Bundy for unabashedly referring to our rivals as Atlanta a minimum of five times without correcting himself.

Next goal is HUGE!

this team is just... not very good.

Is this really just a lack of Pronger?

um. just took the dog for a quick walk, what the hell?

did anything deflect off the dog? if not, then you weren't walking him in front of the flyers net.

Yeah. Pull Bob. That'll fix the fucking problem.

WHAT IN THE WIDE, WIDE WORLD OF SPORTS IS GOING ON HERE?!?!

i think Jim Jackson and Jonesy need to stop excusing the goalies due to bad bounces.

Yeah, it hasn't all been bad bounces. The rest is the defense leaving him out to dry. Same shit as last season.

You know there was this one game I was at once where the Flyers were down 5-1 in the 3rd period....

2-Man Advantage!

This team does know its not ‘first goal wins' doesn't it?

Giroux!

Let's turn it around boys!!!!!!

The Flyers are starting to play well

CAN ANYONE FUCKING DEFEND THE GUY IN FRONT!?! ANYBODY!?!?!

That was a 19 shot period. That's what I like to see.

LETS GO FLYERS!!!!!!!

Didn't Claude Noel play for the Bears?

4 goals in the first period, 6 goals in the second period. Let's score 8 in the third, all for the Flyers.

Danny boy!

Analysis of the game

(1) Flyers stink
(2) Lavi's yelling causes SBN site to crash
(3) Flyers start playing great

I just shrieked like a girl.

READ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

GTFO of here? Tie game?

HOLY SHIT

i have to change my pants

Everyone who left the WFC early feels like a total ass right about now.

Lilja did something good. Not sure what to do about that. hahahahahahahahahaahahaha this game is just funny

SCORE

I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT IS GOING ON HERE...

BUT WE'RE WINNING AND I LIKE IT.

Since I woke up we've scored 5 unanswered goals.

We were down 6-2, and we're now winning?

HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

Dammit!

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaand...
we're down by one again.

I need more booze

I do not care for Ilya Bryzgalov at this moment

8 goals on 22 shots, makes you sick doesn't it?

This is what happens when Nittymaki isn't in goal anymore.

Someone please tie this game up, please please please.

YOUNG JAMES!!!!!

CRAZY 8s, BITCHES!

RRRRRRRRRRRRREEMER!

Now.... FINISH THEM

This is either one of the best hockey games I've ever seen or one of the worst. Not sure which.

NO NO NO

Bryz looks so sad.

Would pulling the goalie make any difference in this one?

Is it over?

Fuck.

Screw the Thrashers, man.
