South Jersey’s own Johnny Gaudreau and the Calgary Flames are up next for the Flyers, and we were joined by Mark Parkinson of Matchsticks & Gasoline to preview the game. We chatted about:

  • The surprise of the Flames being the best team in the West by a comfortable margin
  • The success of their offseason moves, one of which has improved the top line a lot
  • Johnny Gaudreau is from South Jersey, did you know this, have you heard about this?
  • What happened to Mike Smith, who was quite good last season
  • How simple childhood decisions about sports can shape your whole life

The game kicks off tomorrow at 1PM and will air on NBC Sports Philly locally and the NHL Network if you’re outside the area. Go Flyers? We guess.
