Flyers kicking butt tonight. They win, 5 to 1

I'm new to the forum, transplant from Jersey and a die hard Flyers fan (born and raised)!  Glad to see another hockey fan in TX, let alone a Flyers fan!  Good to see Bryz get the win tonight, hopefully Lavi will play him for a few games to let him get his confidence back.  I love having this tandem though, Bobs is looking great so far in his role!

hey - yes, very cool to see a fellow Flyers fan.

I really like Bryz, but yea, something needs to give. For his salary, he just isn't playing as good as he did prior to coming to Phili. Some say that the pressure of being in a big hockey town now (where they/the public are very rough on the goalie as far as pressure is concerned) is having an effect on his confidence...

That's probably part of it. But yea, I find myself preferring bobrovsky lately.

I have the same problem with Luongo, admittedly. When the other team scores, its hard NOT to blame him. I just don't seem to get as upset with Bobovsky (or with cory schneider with the Canucks - their backup goalie) as I do with Bryz (and Luongo on the Canucks).

Bryz really needs to get his game on.

Hmmmm favorite teams .. lets see.  The Red Wings and yeah The Red Wings.

Glad to see they are pulling their heads outta their asses and playing finally.  They didn't look good at the start of the season and from what I saw the other day on the NBC Sports game of the week they were looking better but took OT to beat Chicago.

Hopefully I can see all the playoff games on that new NBC channel like Vs used to do.  and I might have to look at the NHL Center Ice thing if Comcast offers it next year.  I missed watching the Wings this year.

Maybe it is the simple expectation that Bryz would bring his game to the Flyers and be the missing piece.  Slumps happen, and he'll get through it.  He was 12-2 prior to "the huMANgus big universe" speech, then the slump.  Oh well, Let's Go Flyers!

Well, I'm liking Bobrovsky more, lately.

But, I hope he brings his game.

I'm actually gonna meet Bryz in about a month, along with Giroux and Jagr

Just finished watching last night's Canucks game on the DVR... Damn Luongo (the goalie)...

Went to a shootout, but the Kings beat the Canucks, 3 to 2  :bangheadonwall:

Just got back from a Texas a&m hockey game. Saw one last night too... This was the first one for my four year old to go to - for an entire game...

Mixed bag of misbehavior  :th_thicon_lol:

He just wanted to go with "daddy."

Gonna be a while before I take him to another... At least this season...

Man, Boston beat the Flyers in a shootout, 6 to 5...

Actually, I'm a bit surprised how well the Flyers did with the way Boston just runs everybody over....

Blame this loss on the goalie, unfortunately...

Bruins goalie Thomas declines White House visit for political reasons

Quote
"I believe the Federal government has grown out of control, threatening the Rights, Liberties, and Property of the People," Thomas said in a statement.

"This is being done at the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial level. This is in direct opposition to the Constitution and the Founding Fathers vision for the Federal government," he wrote.

"Because I believe this, today (Monday) I exercised my right as a Free Citizen, and did not visit the White House. This was not about politics or party, as in my opinion both parties are responsible for the situation we are in as a country. This was about a choice I had to make as an INDIVIDUAL."

I don't like many things from Boston, but I will applaud his stance.

Was out of town and missed the nj and Boston games.  Hartnell got 5 goals over the weekend, pretty sweet!  What happened to Danny Breeze, out with a concussion?

Hartnell got a hat trick. They had to play like the last minute of the 2nd period, after the 2nd period break. THEN they started period 3. It took time to clean hundreds of hats off the ice...

I'll tell ya - everyone is out with a concussion. JVR too...  Now Briere...

Jagr is out again for an injury too...

"Respect the [presidency]," Schneider said. "He plays for Team USA and he has no problem making millions of dollars in the USA, but he can't go say 'hi' to the President? You get a lot of benefits living in the U.S. and he should have a little bit of respect for that.

"It's just the timing," he added. "It's poor timing. It's about putting your own agenda aside to do something with the team whether you like the guy or not."

Reaction from Thomas not going to the White House.
