Looking for another win tonight.

Great road game by the Flyers tonight, took advantage of their chances.   Was a pretty good paced game by both teams.


Does the book on Emery say go high?   The Pens seemed to be going high an awful lot last night, but just create a great deal of work for the rink crew cleaning the rubber off the glass behind the net.

I missed the game last night. How did they look? I saw the highlights, and the work by Simmonds on Schenn's first goal is the kind of effort that's been missing from the whole team this year. Happy to see hard work.

So, did it look as lopsided as the shots indicate, and Emery kept them in it? Or were the Flyers a worthy opponent?

I was excited about the win, but not overley excited about their play. We hung on in the 3rd and played defense, very limited offensive effort imo. I know this probably has been said a million times, but Timmonen looks like its about time to retire. Slow and making mistakes. I was actually feeling calm with Emery in net, normally I cringe every time there is a shot on our net, but Emery looked good. I am excited about the direction of this team now. Its only early in the season. I don't want a lottery pick.

BTW...Giroux looks just a little bit off. Seems a bit slower on the puck and decision making, hopefully his body will catch up to his brain.

made emery look like he belongs in nhl funny statement, considering he was 18-1 last season

Playing mostly weaker teams behind Chicago's defense and powerhouse scoring... *shrugs*.

Oh sorry... Hurray for a lifetime backup goalie!

There are a lot if Flyers players I'll speak we'll of, but Emery? Come on! You guys have a love fest because of his attitude not any serious talent.

Mason is clearly your go to guy right now. Emery will do as he's done that's had him bounced between the minors and NHL his whole career... Fill in as a decent backup.

 He wasn't playing behind powerhouse scoring or Chicagos D last night....but he was the best player on the ice. He's still a backup, but he played a hell of a game last night. Pitched a shutout the game before. And remember, we're not used to seeing this kind of goaltending, we're kind of in awe, even if it is what a lot of teams are used to.

I didn't think Emery did anything but play angles on outside shots well. Pens couldn't hit a barn with a ball last night. Even Sid looked slow and out of sync.


No thanks. Fleury has stunk, but if I'm going for someone besides Vokoun, I can think of many better than Emery. His stats aren't all that different.

What's Even Better Is That The Flyers Are 7-1-1 At The Pens New Arena. I Think Has Something To Do With Mario POuring His And Cindys Man Juice On Center Ice When They Opened That Rink Up...


LOL, I didn't think Crosby was capable of making man juice?
