They only gain one point on the Bruins but its better than losing a point!

 

 

Not really. This is the team they are trying to catch.

 

Bruins win by gaining a point.

 

But hey enjoy the win they will be golfing soon.

 

Season is over.

that's a talent issue, it's been like this since the lavy era.  the core has to change. we need consistent goal scorers not players that score great in beginning and drop off, you cant win like that.

They started off good this year and then the wheels fell off.   They started out bad last season and got their legs under them.   And that's the issue - a general lack of consistency.   Teams that play more consistently - like the three at the top of the division - get better long term results. Yes, the Pens stumbled early this season but that core has been consistently good over a long period of time.   The Flyers remain up and down...  

You may have seen Jake talking about how "play 60 minutes" is a "hockey cliche" because no team ever controls a game for all 60 minutes.     Yes, he said this after the Isles loss following the Buffalo 6-1 debacle. I'm guessing he didn't see the 6-1 loss. https://twitter.com/billmeltzer/status/1378529367479959562?s=2   If this isn't prima facie evidence that he's one of the guys being talked about as "inconsistent" I don't know what is...   You don't

If you can hold your opponent to two goals, you stand a chance of winning.  Maybe the embarrassment factor was beginning to set in and make them angry enough to compete.

A win is a win, and the team played well in getting two points. However, I'd hate to rain on their parade, but it was against Boston's 3rd string goalie.

Sure but at this point they are ruining their draft position.

 

They can beat the Bruins without giving up a point than it doesn't matter.

 

Might as well start the fire sale and break out the clubs and get that golf swing in form this isn't a good team.

 

And it will be more of the same next year.

 

Chuckles will do nothing but add his yearly Gustafsson attempt to help.

 

Wash rinse repeat.

The hockey God's gave them that one after all the terrible calls.

 

How often do you see Bergeron fall down like that?

 

Giving up one point out of that really did them no favors.

 

FORE!!!

Bergy was tripped....

 

What? Are you hitting hydro?

 

 

Sure he was tripped by the ice maybe not sure what else you are referring too.

 

Trip, fell whatever.

Vladar kept the bruins in that game, made some monster saves..

 

Oh yeah. He may be "3rd string" - behind Rask and Halak most goalies are - but he played well last night, extremely well imho. The back-to-back saves he made on Giroux then Konecny were amazing. Does he go again tonight? Who else do the Bruins have available?

Just three pages, Flyers must have won.

Hating the players doesn't have the same urgency after a win, just an observation of a life long fan.

 

We tuned in just in time for the Sanheim winner, like right as he blocked the Bergeron shot. That was cool.

Also kind of cool seeing Patrick single leg Marchand after getting pulled down...everyone better wear their cups tonight. I think Todd is going to making some cup checks throughout the evening.

It is one of the things I like about Patrick, he does have some punk in his game, the twitter people who also write seemed to think he played well. the twitter people who comment still hate him though so I guess we've reached a stasis there.

 

Since they've had a short break they've played "better". They played well vs the Isles and I'm guessing they played a good road game, only gave up 2 goals, shots looked pretty even.  Two good road games

Good win ?

You got it....

 

I just can't fathom that he wiped out on his own, kind of funny, but not the end result.

With rask out with his ackey-breaky back, and halak in covid proto, Vladar should get the start again, but we will have to see what Swayman can do at some point.

I watched from the second period on despite my wife's "ugh, The Flyers?" groan when I switched over.

 

Since you asked :thumbsu:, I still don't see anything that indicates to me that this roster can seriously compete as anything more than a bubble playoff team.

 

Again. Just an observation of a life long fan. :hocky:

 

A come-from-behind OT win against a "third string" goalie on a team that's been playing .500 since their hot start, based on winning in a 3-on-3 format that isn't going to be duplicated in the playoffs is two points and that's good.

 

But it is what it is. Boston is still three points up with two games in hand.

 

The Flyers are still on the outside looking in and they have no one to blame but themselves.

 

They have 19 games left with 11 of them against teams above them in the standings. 1 against Buffalo, 2 Rags and five Devils.

 

The Bruins have 21 games, play Buffalo six times, Flyers, Rags and Devils twice with 9 games against teams above them in the standings.

 

So we're left with

Just need to get rid of some future assets to bring in Savard and Bernier and then the only question is where to start the parade.

Oh yeah I'd say the "glass half-empty" POV is well-represented around here alright.😆

 

EDIT: the emoji seemed to fit my comment, which was in jest. The wincing eyes expect hell to follow after so let me hasten to add: NTTAWWT.

My take away from this is, if the Flyers handle their business they can make the playoffs and maybe improve their standing to the 3 seed.

It's a heavy lift with no room for error, but the team doesn't have to rely on outside forces.

Will they do it?

It's been a rough year. I won't be surprised if they don't. 

 

I don't see where the Islanders or Bruins or anyone actually is sooooo much better than them in the division.

The Islanders don't have Anders Lee that's a huge loss for them. He's so good along the walls and in tight spaces there's no one on the Flyers and few guys in the league that can handle him. He's missed  and makes that team beatable. I don't think the Bruins are all that either, the Flyers should have 2 more wins vs them this season, 2 head up ass games where they beat themselves in the third period.  So maybe the Caps are the juggernaut- but I don't know. I think the Pens might be playing the best right now...What I'm saying is Jim Carey is on to something.
