Game 75: Islanders at Flyers; 3/23/19 @ 1

Recommended Posts

The O & B are a mild favorite over the Isles.  Given recent play and our record against them this season, that's expected:

I have not seen any lineup.  I suspect Carter Hart will be in net.  

 

The visiting team has won each of the prior two this season. We are 5-5-1 in our past 11 at home:

I'm going to this one.

I wonder if we'll see anymore Boychuck /Voracek weirdnesss?

I was hoping for more points from that wash/tor/pgh/mtl group of games so there would be something on the line for this game. 

The Flyers need help, but are still "in the fight", which is remarkable since they were dead last in the league on Jan 12 or whatever.

Our seats are decent, so looking forward to a fun afternoon.

go Flyers

Have a great time.  Hopefully it'll be an exciting game for you and Vorachek can get his best revenge with a hatty!

 

Enjoy!

 

GO FLYERS!!!!

I'll be making a rare (recently) appearance in the building today myself. Boychuk has been a healthy scratch of late, we'll see on the revenge factor....but good to see some ill will between the Flyboys and the Isles, I miss being able to work up a good Islander hate!

Today is a perfect day for Morin to play his first game. If Boychuck or that idiot Martin start anything , we would actually have someone to defend our guys.

It would have been nice to have Goulbourne for this one in case they try something which i am sure they will.

 

But to me if Boychuk tries something after he had the chance to actually see the replay then he will have proved to me on the fact that he is a punk.

 

Because at the time of when it happened i could see him being mad because he might not be sure how it went down...but i know he has seen it since and if he think that is what Jake was trying to do then he is a fool and deserves to get his arse beat.

 

And i would love to see Jake be the one to pound him but we know Jake ain't no fighter.

So from reports is no Johnny for today's game. Which doesn't mean there won't be anyone going after Jake.

 

I won't be able to watch going to my daughters dance competition in Charlotte North Carolina.

 

It goes without say they need to win this...in fact lets go ahead and say they can't lose another game.

 

That is the mind set they have to have. Go Flyers!

 

Flyers 5

 

Isles 2

You know, for a game that features two teams not too long separated by the Voracek-Boychuk incident, and one where the Isles had been sputtering lately and are in danger of losing home ice for the playoffs AND one where the Flyers still got a shot to get in... there is just very little emotion here on either side.

Sure, both teams are playing hockey, both teams obviously want to win, but still....very disappointing.
I guess I expected some more fireworks, some bigger hitting, guys yapping, chirping, getting on each other's nerves.

Even when players are crowding goalies and invading creases, no big scrums, no guys shoving guys away from the crease... almost like, "oh, hey, can you get out of my goalie's face, please?"  "Yea, sure, sorry"   "Alright, no problem".
Blech....

I just expect more from teams in this situation...especially Isles vs Flyers with a chance to get in the post season or play for home ice.

This Flyer team is too soft for that.

 

All they know how to do is throw out a flailing stick...sad.

 

Sure could use Morin.

One of the more grotesque displays of incompetence from refs I've seen in awhile. 

 

Eric Furlatt and Kendrick Nicholson have simply been criminally bad. They're stealing their paychecks.  

 

Why don't officials get suspended or fired for being so incredibly bad at their job?  It's really hard to believe it's simple incompetence.  Clearly, bad calls.

Bad calls aside, and there were some doozies, the Flyers were outplayed badly today. 7 games left, time to give Morin, Talbot and some others some games to start building towards October.

Don't even know what to say about this non call.

 

 

Did Hagg get called for a penalty last game that was on Filppula too?

      Is it wrong for me to say that I'm happy about this loss? It's an eye opener as to just how badly coached this club is when it comes to even the basic fundamentals of the game. Referees certainly played a big part, but it just goes to show how far from contention this team really is.    I'm hopeful of a full house cleaning in both Philadelphia and Lehigh Valley once the season ends and that who ever is brought in, there's an emphasis on fundamentals, break out plays and sustaining pres

      Can they at least be castrated so they don't make baby refs?

      Okay, but again just to be clear, I'm not arguing it is.   Refs or not, they were flat.  They spent entirely too much time in their own end and 5-on-5 the Isles owned them all game.  I'm not blaming the refs for the loss.     I'm blaming the refs for being entirely and pathetically inept at their job.  I mean, cut them some slack if they miss something away from the puck or if they misinterpret something away from the puck.  But all of these things (the Hagg thing, Hartman, a

      This is still a dump and chase team, moving slowly east-west.    And when they actually *do* attack and enter the zone with purpose, they are at a loss as to what to do next. It usually involves peeling *away* from the net along the halfboards, stopping, and forcing a pass that isn't there, leading to a turnover. Or, try and skate *through* players and making pass after pass after pass, then turnover. The final option is to cycle and keep the play along the boards that is mostly harmle
