  • The Flyers-Devils' series history (prior GDT) -- http://hfboards.hockeysfuture.com/sh...d.php?t=897703


January 25, 1983 --Behn Wilson scored twice in a 5-1 home win, the first time the Devils played in Philly. Wilson's first goal came with two seconds left in the opening period. Bob Froese picked up the victory to improve to 7-0-0 and became the first goalie since Wayne Thomas of Montreal in 1972-73 to start his career 7-0-0. The Flyers outshot NJ 38-19. There was a 30-minute bench-clearing brawl in the second period which resulted in 74 PIMs ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xjHMvbTAdpQ ) and ejections of five players: Philly's Frank Bathe, Paul Holmgren and Glen Cochrane (PHI) and NJ's Don Lever and John Wensink. The main fight originated when Hector Marini (NJ) and Cochrane (Philly) fought for the third time this season then Holmgren, who earned an instigator penalty, tried to goad Garry Howatt which led to the bench-clearing but since the NHL couldn't determine which team came off the bench first, each team was docked $2500 which infuriated NJ's brass. ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fj55S2N8RbM). Twelve seconds after the main clash, with Philly up 3-1, Wilson scored his second of the game. Philly held a 30-8 shots advantage after two periods (38-19 in the game).

  • November 27, 2010 -- Travis Zajac scored the SO winner (2-1) in NJ's 2-1 home win. The Flyers led the shootout 1-0 when Nikolay Zherdev scored in the third round but Jason Arnott tied it. Johan Hedberg made 40 saves and was 3-for-4 in the shootout and was selected the game's top star. Danny Briere tied the game with a PPG midway in the third period. Philly held a 41-25 shots advantage including 28-11 combined in the second and third periods. The game totalled 10 PIMs. It was the second straight shootout loss for the Flyers in as many days leading Blair Betts to say “You can feel it (lack of passion). The atmosphere was light and there wasn’t enough emotion or intensity, even before we went on the ice. You kind of felt it yesterday against Calgary and it’s something we have to fix.” Highlights -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=30S83syc1ds
  • December 4, 2010 --Mike Richards (1-1-2, +3), who scored the tie-breaking goal 3:37 into the third period, and Jeff Carter (1-2-3) were the game's top two stars in Philly's 5-3 home win. Sergei Bobrovsky made 23 saves including a key stop on Ilya Kovalchuk's breakaway with the score tied 2-2. Kovalchuk earlier scored his second goal in the past 17 games. The Devils' PP was 1-for-43 on the road but went 2-for-3 in this game including making the score 4-3 with 44 seconds to play. The Flyers' struggling PP went 0-for-3 and fell into a 2-for-41 slump. Philly dominated the second period 14-4 on shots and scored the lone goal to tie the game 2-2. In the third, the Flyers scored three times including Carter's ENG.

Hartnell's second goal tied the game 2-2 with 1:06 remaining in the middle period. David Clarkson gave the Devils a 2-1 lead with 2:20 left in the second period, a goal confirmed by video replay after play had continued. Matt Carle added two assists.

Please win!

BernieParent 03-12-2012 10:02 PM

Need to turn up the intensity, Flyers skaters. They are looking flat of late. The return of 1-2 regulars would be a bonus.

SolidSnakeUS 03-13-2012 01:49 AM

Please. Don't. Suck.

dats81 03-13-2012 03:19 AM

Would be brutal to lose back to back games against a Division rival.

Flyers need a win.

I can't understand for the life of me why Fios doesn't have provide TCN-HD.

mirimon 03-13-2012 08:13 AM

Would be nice to get a win here. Hopefully our offense gets going again. Just ****ing crush'em.

Kaktus* 03-13-2012 08:20 AM

Looks like we will get Voracek back for sure. Timonen Kubina may not play, Meszaros will be out for sure.
I am ok with 6th place.


"We'll see how I feel," Voracek said. "It's not so much headaches, but my neck was hurt. It wasn't that bad. When I saw [video of] the hit, [the pain] wasn't as bad as I expected it."

The heart of the defense corps - Kubina, Timonen and Andrej Meszaros - are not yet ready to return to action. All three remain "day-to-day" with undisclosed injuries. Meszaros, the only one to not skate yesterday, and Timonen have been out since March 1 with "lower-body" injuries.

Looks like Voracek is playing. Updates are upcoming.

UPDATE: Voracek is playing and according to Tim P. Timonen is all but certain to play tonight.

Kubina was paired at practice with Manning which likely signals both will be scratched if Timonen returns.

Big Time!

Bryz to start

I won't call this a must win because the 6th seed isn't some awful punishment, but I definitely want this win as much to shut some filthy Jersey fan mouths as anything else.

Is Rinaldo supposed to be in the lineup tonight?

Let's hope Briere will score some goals tonight.

Even if they finish 6th in the conference, 4th in the division is not high enough. Must win.

I'd prefer to beat the best enroute to the cup not some south paw leftovers team. I get flack about how 'easy' the Flyers route was to the Stanley Cup Finals.

If anyone has the balls to say someone else wasn't playing hard it certainly isn't the backer of the "#1 star of the week Bryz" Sorry he got 1st star, doesn't mean he made up for the whole season prior to this.



As for practice, the feeling was Bryzgalov wasn't serious enough about it. He hadn't struggled like this over the past four seasons, averaging 67 appearances per year. Therefore, he didn't need to do a ton of extra stuff and received rest time because of his workload.

With his game in tatters and on pace for his fewest starts in five years, Bryzgalov was asked to re-discover his work ethic. He did, going on the ice early and putting in the time
Bryz work ethic was challenged, and he responded. That shouldn't have to happen as a professional.

The fact is Briere never said he didn't play hard in front of him. They way Bryz was and the way he was in the locker room and playing on ice, was making it difficult for the team to keep battling for him. Yes Briere has been quiet lately, but stop throwing this on Briere. Bryz was the reason the team had to meet with him and straighten him out. And Briere was on of the leaders to do so. So obviously even when Briere isn't performing up to standards he still has a ton of respect in the locker room.

Love seeing how you either will tell me i'm wrong or try to twist it all around again on another player besides Bryz.

it's a shame Danny feels that playing hard isn't something that should just happen automatically ..... being a highly paid professional and all ..... there really should be no conditions on it .....

he needs to shut his mouth. and play hard all of the time.

have you been watching him? You should try doing that. He's out there trying and giving the effort, it's just not working. Something is off, and the concussion might be why.

Oh, right. Because he dared to call out Bryzgalov he's the worst villain on the team. I forgot.
