Disclaimer: if you don’t see the title of this episode of postgame, check it out. I don’t know why but the sound sucked for the first 5:52 of the show. It improves dramatically after that point. I put an ad right at that point to break up the awful sound and the ok sound. After around the 6-minute mark, it stays listenable for the final hour of the program.

The audio quality is an ongoing concern for the postgames, and steps are being taken to return it to last season’s sound. Thanks for dealing with it.

The Excellence of Execution. The Hitman. The best there is, the best there was, and the best there ever will be.

No matter what you want to call Carter Hart, there’s no denying how well he played between the pipes in the Flyers’ 4-1 win over the Carolina Hurricanes on Tuesday night at the Wells Fargo Center.

Hart denied the ‘Canes on 33 of the 34 attempts that reached him (.971 save-percentage), and kept his club in a game which they were thoroughly out-played in over the first two periods.

Despite Carolina carrying play, Philly maintained their composure, kept the compete level high even when momentum wasn’t on their side, and then came out and rewarded Hart for his first 40 minutes by scoring three goals in the third period, and tilting the ice to their advantage, to win the deciding period.

Goals by Sean Couturier (4), Travis Konecny (7), Joel Farabee (2), and Claude Giroux (4), highlighted the offensive effort, but it was the Flyers’ play in front of Hart, even when the Hurricanes were threatening, that kept this game winnable in the final 20.

Listen to the postgame ahead of a brand new BSH Radio, recording Wednesday night. Then listen to that, too. Really, why don’t you just subscribe? There’s a button right on the media player here. But you can also search “Broad Street Hockey” wherever you’re most comfortable looking for and listening to podcasts. What do you have to lose?
