I didn't see any of this game. But with a late goal by Jakub Voracek, the Flyers forced OT and lost in a shootout, which seems like an effort with which I should be pretty happy.
But getting one point also solidifies the Flyers hold on fifth, which makes them more likely to face the Penguins or Rangers first, a likelihood with which I should be pretty angry.
At this point it could be said that the Flyers' best chance of getting to avoid the Atlantic would be by just running the table and finishing first, a plan with which I should be pretty content.
But losing games to teams like the Bruins, which suddenly suck as hard as their fanbase (it's almost like Tim Thomas decided to turn down invites to the win column.), isn't going to get it done, so I think the Flyers should try to win all the rest of their games this year.
Happy St. Patrick's Day, BSH. But be warned that green NHL gear is dumb as hell.
