Game 45: Islanders at Flyers; 4/18/21 @ 6:30, NBCSN


Recommended Posts

Greetings:

 

We are a moderate underdog.  As this bookie notes, that's a bit surprising given our recent play and how well the Islanders have played against us this year:

The Isles have lost three of four.  We are on a back-to-back.  I don't know how that shakes out.  It looks like Elliott for us between the pipes.  

 

My only comment:  I think we got a good indication of where the O and B was heading this season in our playoff series against NYI last year.  Our performance against the Isles is a good benchmark for whatever progress we make over the next year.  I hate to say it, that may also speak to coach and management, not just players.

I can't see why....   Van Riemsdyk 1 goal last 18 gamesHayes 0 goals last 10 gamesPatrick 1 goal last 17 gamesLaughton 0 points last 15 gamesFarabee 1 goal last 13 gamesAube-Kubel 1 goal last 27 games   j/k man they are choking hard.

FYI on Farabee...has more points than the FIVE players taken right before him COMBINED.    Liked the pick then. STILL like the pick now.

Which really, all things considered isn't too shabby. Only thing I'd quibble with here is NAK, who doesn't seem to have a touch for anything but taking penalties. I'm kidding but I do wonder whether he's just another part of the fell-off-the-cliff development downturn that's affected all the Flyers this year? Or is he something worse, on his own downward trajectory?

I think it is safe to say it is riddled throughout the club house from top to bottom.

 

I is time to start the purge...

Boy, this really is system failure.  I can't even begin to compute if that is a talent issue or other?  If they really are snoozing, it's pathetic and AV needs to send some signals...and CF needs, yes, to purge as best we can.  Aube-Kubel is really hurting the team with penalties and  has regressed big time from last year.  He may be falling off the radar screen.  As for JVR...SOS taken to a new level.

 It IS system failure. There's talent on the team...we saw it last season. This is neurological. Every player is hurting the team. Except Allison, because the stink hasn't penetrated him yet. It will if he plays long enough. 

 

 Gut this mess and reboot.

Well, I think Pierre McGuire just laid cards on the table about the squad.  It was not what was expected going into the season.  Yep! Defense, goal, forwards...the whole shebang.

look like the keystone cops out there on these odd-man rushes. better focus and the Flyers have 3 goals by now.

 

Decent period for the Flyers.  Several odd man rushes.  They needed to capitalize on those.  Islanders were asleep.

I can't agree it was even decent. As you say the Isles were asleep that's the only reason the Flyers had all those looks, which they blew one after another. If NY wakes up in the 2nd it will get ugly real fast unless the Flyers' skaters bear down.

They way it’s been going for the Flyers this season, the fact they weren’t trailing by 2-3 goals after the first period made it a solid or decent period

all the vet forwards have to go, but cf has to get some vets on d and let the younger forwards develop, i mean look at carolina, they have a very young forward core with experienced d. there's no other way, not unless you want to tank for 15 years and hope star forwards fall to us, you dont want that either.

 

put it this way we are a 500 team when vet forwards dont show up, that's good we just need more d and great goaltending and we are fine.

TK had a pretty good game.  Elliott played well in net.  Sanheim played great.  It's unfortunate that he did the right thing by getting his stick in the passing lane and deflected the puck past Elliott.  Just a schitty end to a well played game.

NBC posted there have only been six 0-0 ties this season.  I can't remember the last time I witnessed this.  You feel for Elliott on a number of levels.  

 

It is not a good year in Flyerdom.

The Flyers deserved better than the one point tonight.  The hockey gods failed them tonight.  That was one of their best games in the last 6 weeks or so.

Am I the only one that thought the Flyers played way to conservative in OT. Normally they are good for a few offensive chances in OT. Yesterday it seem like they were trying to get it to a shootout, although god know why.
