    The second period made me a Blackwood believer (maybe - small sample size). A lot of those saves were special.

    To just keep playing well is the key for this team. Too early to start counting points or handicapping the race. Three wins doesn’t quite make a streak. But it’s a hopeful start.

    Happy 2019 to all. MP

    We played great in the 3rd. I'm not sure if the Vatanen goal took the Canucks out of the game or if somebody did some screaming in the locker room in the 2nd intermission, but they only had 4 shots the entire period.

    IF the devils make the playoffs, he should win the calder. Similar to how hall was mvp last season since he basically carried the team to the playoffs.

    Sal said if we score early in the 3rd it would be game over, Vanc would be deflated, he was right

    What exactly did Vancouvers announcers say that ruffled some of your feathers?

    That third period was some excellent hockey. Would love for us to remember how to play with the lead like that - we looked like a team with an identity.

    The way the devils played in the third really made me love that Lovejoy intermission interview.

    Glad to hear that, I've missed the Columbus, Boston, and Carolina games due to vacation.

    Santini I've always had faith in and have said he should be a starter.

    As for Severson, if he learns he's playing defense in the NHL rather than wing, I'd have no problem with him.

    The Wood shot was a laser, even you with your schoolmarm rigidness for goalie play, cant fault a goalie on that.

    The Boyle & Zacha goals could have been saved.

    I'm old enough to remember when he was going to cure the Flyers long-standing goalie problems. Then Roman Cechmanek (the weird face-save guy) was going to save the Flyers. And on and on for over 20 years now....

    There really are only 3 things certain in life; death, taxes, and Philadelphia Flyers goal-tending woes.


    Your regular whiskey or were you trying something fancy?

    He was off his angle on the Wood goal. I think even Dano pointed that out.

    After looking at the Zacha goal again, I don’t think I can nail him on that one. It was a one timer and I don’t really ding the goalie on a one timer, unless he was in position on it.

    The Vatanen goal is starting to look more hideous to me, I don’t think that went off a skate in front.

    Yeah, I mean, he's clearly the favorite were I a betting man, but that's a bit premature. Especially given his shooting percentage is > 27%.

    That at least tells me his goal-scoring clip is completely unsustainable & a flukish outlier to this point. I'd also hazard to say that few people actually understand or are aware of this.

    The ones that are aware are tripping over themselves to explain it away by saying his shot selection is so good he will sustain it. No one beats shooting percentage, it has never happened.

    Pettersson does have a 14 point gap on the next closest rookie, so he is a pretty heavy favorite. Saying it's a "lock" is a bit premature though.
