Refs trying their best to help the Sens out it seems.

Also it is good to see some more emotion from Hak behind the bench...

I think it may have been the high stick from earlier in the game. It hit him pretty flush on the cheek.  I just don't see anything on this play.

So on this play. Doesn't look that bad and he kept playing which doesn't mean nothing was wrong...

Could be. I still haven't seen any confirmation on anything yet.

If Patrick is concussed from either of those two hits, then I think his NHL career is going to be pretty short.   My vote is on shoulder.

Had bad is Folin that they would rather put out a broke down Mcturd out there than play this guy. They really need to just cut bait with Folin and find a vet who can help and actually play.

The problem is that MacDonald is considered the "vet" on this team and would never lose his job to Folin, even if Folin deserves it.  You're right that they net a solid vet and make MacDonald the 7th dman.  Should have happened at some point in the past.

Patrick got banged around a few times.  Neither of those hits looks like a concussion-type hit, though.  I wonder if the high stick got him somewhere around the eye.

It was nice to see the offense kick in again last night. 

 

The good news is that we're scoring 4 goals per game through 4 games. 

 

The bad news is that we're giving up 4.75 goals per game through 4 games, including 2 SHG. 

 

Our PK has picked up right where it left off (68%, 25th). Our PP is middle of the pack (25%, 15th). Still early, obviously, but the PK absolutely needs to get better if the Flyers want to be a competitive team.

 

I liked Lehtera and Laughton's game last night. Weise played well too. 

 

Even so, the Sens dominated us 5v5 even if we outscored them 3-1. They also had the better Corsi (53% to 47%) and had more high danger chances (10 vs 8).

 

Pickard was ok - I thought he looked no better or worse than Elliott in his first 2 games. 

 

I would consider shaking up the defensive pairings, because that is definitely a weakness. The only guy playing top level hockey is Ghost, even if he comes with some risk... his contributions strongly outweigh his gaffes. 

 

Provorov/Sanheim

Ghost/Hagg

Gudas/MacDonald

RE: Patrick

 

If that stick caught him around the orbital bones (there's a lot of bones that come together and overlap in the eye socket/high cheek area)

he could literally have a broken face. 

 

Also after taking that shot where there was contact and then the coup contrecoup motion that followed on the check, he could have sustained a concussion there.

I hope for his sake it's neither of those things.

We won, but I'm not really sure we should have. Which is fair of course. That's just how hockey works. There's a substantial amount of luck involved. 

 

On the one hand, Ottawa isn't exactly a great team by any yardstick I can find. If we are meant to take some sort of step forward this year, this really should have been a fairly decisive victory. I don't feel like it was.

 

The good:

 

Gudas played well again. He's really come around so far this year in fact. Hagg chipping in on offence is good to see as well. Both those guys have more offensive skill than they usually show, so it's nice to see them working at it a bit.

 

Ghost was our best dman and possibly best player overall. This is good. I remember him being very shaky vs Vegas in game one. I'm glad to see he's picking up again. Not surprised, but happy.

 

Provo seems to be struggling with a lack of confidence or something. I hope he shakes it off. Given how good he was for us last year, he deserves a long leash while he sorts through things.

 

Jake had his best game in a very long time. Not only did he put up points, he actually seemed somewhat in control of his actions. Most of the time it feels like Jake with the puck is like a coin toss. He seemed confident and capable in this one. Having Giroux around likely helps with this, but he deserves cred for a good game.

 

The less good:

 

Lindblom was okay, but he's not showing top six skill yet. With JVR out, this is his chance to show he can play at that level. I hope he's capable of doing so.

 

Patrick going down is bad obviously. That said, Vorobyev has been our second best center this year by a decent margin. I can imagine a situation where he takes the 2C role and doesn't give it up even when Patrick comes back.

 

Our PK continues to be awful. This is a systems issue 100% and needs to be fixed with a coaching change at this point. The fact this wasn't addressed properly in the off season by Hexy is frustrating. There's no sense mincing words about it. There is nothing to suggest this roster should be so bad at the PK year in and out. They're poorly coached and have a bad PK system. Find a new PK coach. Full stop.

Well if we’re gonna have injuries, I guess I’d prefer to have them front loaded. 

 

Meanwhile, we can all watch Pettersson and dream about what could have been :D

This is my favourite thing about the game last night. Standing up for Lindblom the whole game, and it started with an authoritative cross check from Lehtera. 

 

That made the game so much better.

I say next game vs. Sens let's dress Goulbourne and turn him loose...he can maybe improve the PK too...maybe...

Also with this issue is now that goonery has pretty much let the players police it but please please the only way it works is to get rid of the instigator rule...do this and the players taking matters into their own hands can work.

      I am actually very interested in this game.

      I want to see if Calvin Pickard really does have NHL staying power.... I believe he does, but apparently, not many GM's do, as he has been bounced around from team to team over the last couple seasons.   Even if Pickard isn't "great", but just good, I think Elliot may have to fear for his job.
      Pickard makes a bit less, is younger by about 6 years, can usually stay healthy, is used to backstopping a young defense (he dealt with mistakes by the Colorado defensemen admirably, IMO), and I believe him to be more athletic than Elliot.

      We will see.
      Maybe the pretender Senators torch him. I think not though.

      Dale “popcorn pal” Weise with a point in his first game of the season! Look for Hak to move him to the 1st line next game.

      Good rebound win.  Fortunately they played the Sens.  Both teams are terrible in their own zone.  PK looks the same, which is very alarming.  Voracek had a great night.  Even aside from the goals, I didn’t notice too many forced passes on his part. Wish Konecny could pot one of his chances.  He’s been buzzing around.  Really have to say that Lehtera played well.    Laughton deserved the promotion.  Even Weise played pretty well.  The defense, on the other hand, remains a major work in progress.  I still don’t understand why MacDonald came back so early.  He looks terrible by his standards.

      I would like to thank Alex Formenton for his cheap shot that actually woke up the Flyers. After he boarded Lindblom (I think that was who it was) the flyers started playing with a chip on their collective shoulders. Pickard looked a little unsure of himself early but seemed to find his footing and control as the game went on. He played miles above what Elliot has done so far. I won't call Pickard the second coming of Christ but he deserves the chance to play himself into the title.......

      He was better than his save percentage and he was very active in the crease.   Nothing spectacular and and there was at least one i would have like to have seen him make otherwise it is what you would want...even from Elliott.   No back breaking momentum killers. Just solid goaltending.
