Game 1: Penguins at Flyers, 1/13/21 @ 5:30 PM, NBCSN.


Recommended Posts

Greetings:

 

I have seen odds all over the map, but it looks like we are a light favorite:

Tristan Jarry is in net for the Pens versus Hartsy.  We were a great team at WFC last year; PIT was poor on the road.  But when these teams meet, and with Crosby's track record against us, odds may not matter much.  On face, our depth should be decisive.  But PIT took two from us last year, even though one of those was in OT:

Both teams will want to to open the season on a high note.  It should be good.

 

LGF!

I FCKING HATE THE PENGUINS!

Hey fam! How is everyone?!   Flyers hockey is back and it's glorious! Damn that forward lineup is DEEP!   Hart is the real deal.    The only question mark for me is on defense. Did not like Braun on the top pair. Let's see what happens when Ghost is ready to go. They have nothing to lose by trying Provy/Ghost, Sanheim/Myers, and then probably Gus/Braun.   GO FLYERS! **** THE PENS!    

First time trying this one, from a local brewery and cider house. Teen-girl Mojo debuts on varsity cheer squad tonight too, big night around here.   @CoachX Prediction: NAK-5 PGH-0  NAK with a 15 point night

Love seeing Oskar back in the lineup. Looking forward to seeing the beginning of some good old fashion hockey hate from playing the same teams 8 times a season too😎

Howdy:

 

Two questions for the game from my perspective based on last year's playoffs:

 

1) How will we handle the top line?

2) What of the power play?

 

We had a tough time on both fronts.  Is there improvement?

So i have to ask....

...who is that sporting the Joker suit??? I can't make him out due to the mask.

 

Is that Phil Myers???

 

What is a Joker suit?  Are you talking about the guy with the smiley face on his beanie (toque) or the guy next to him?

 

What is the deal with no socks?

Not too long before we get our first game of the season!

For once, I would have to give the unquestioned edge in goal to the Flyers in their matchup against Pittsburgh.
Carter Hart's play inspires that.

With any luck, he thrives on a super workload, and ol Brian Elliot will be used minimally.
Tristan Jarry and Casey DeSmith will have to show they can handle regular starts...especially Jarry.

Flyers skaters also have to be excited and feel they can match up well against Pittsburgh especially after their good run last season.
Looking for Travis Konecny to turn things up even more and become an undisputed mainstay on the Philly top line.
