You were so close, but you should have said OT!

Lol, at khudobin celebrating. You're missing the playoffs and the only reason it was in a shootout was because of him! :laugh:

Playoff time. Lets go!

Flyerfan4life 04-13-2014 04:54 PM

well at least it werent a 8-1 blowout for Heeter..

still sucks this team cant win a shootout to save its life.

Appleyard 04-13-2014 04:54 PM

McGinn has been credited with the assist on the Simmer 1st goal.

dats81 04-13-2014 04:54 PM

I'm for one don't want to see Cal Heeter anywhere close to this hockey club next season.

I wasn't that far off. Who knows what happens on the 3rd attempt by the Canes if the Flyers could get just 1 past Khudobin.

Well, exciting game to finish the season. Akeson and Gus looked good, it's a shame we don't use them more.

Hartnell is dumb, do something Berube.

Heeter looks like he has potential, just had some nerves this game. At least he can move unlike Emery.

Shootouts are so lame

BlameUtley 04-13-2014 04:56 PM

Coffe 04-13-2014 04:57 PM

For a meaningless game it was enjoyable.

RJ8812* 04-13-2014 04:57 PM

According to Bettman, "75% of the letters" he receives..are in favor of shootouts.

He must have stopped counting at four.

Boo Flyers lost! :p:
Yay for comebacks! :yo:
Taps for the new guy! :handclap:

My fiance is trying to get tickets to game 1 or 2 at the Garden! We're planning to visit my family in New York for the holiday weekend so a game would be nice!

chupanibre 04-13-2014 05:01 PM

Hey guys, I missed the majority of the game unfortunately.

I'm guessing that Heeter was weak due to 5 goals, am I right?

Also how was Akeson?

Or maybe he is just bad at math ;)?

I really do think they should just change it to 3 vs 3, like they had in OT for a brief period against the Pens yesterday, that was cool.

He's conflating NHL shootouts with O.K. Corral style shootouts.

Insulin 04-13-2014 05:06 PM

Oh dear we have Coatesy dancing on the post game show. Akanon, get on it. :laugh:

Dirty but Good 04-13-2014 05:06 PM

No more shootouts until October :yo:

There is the matter of convincing the PA and any change can be used as leverage by one side against the other. I doubt the PA will simply say, sure, 5 minutes more. The rewarding of two points for a shootout win equated to a 60-minute regulation victory is more of a farce than the shootout itself.

Random Forest 04-13-2014 05:07 PM

Akeson deserves a spot. Just look at how guys like Maroon prove their worth in the NHL. Akeson is a very talented player, and can be extremely useful if he's used correctly.

No reason to blow money on patch work players like Downie if we have a guy like Akeson ready to contribute. Bring in Laughton+Akeson next season, and this team's depth will be second to none.

I'll admit they can be entertaining when we win, but it's not a way to decide who the better hockey team is. I've been skeptical about extending overtime, but another five minutes for 3v3 would be super exciting.

MiamiScreamingEagles 04-13-2014 05:08 PM

Simmonds got the game's first star, last one of the regular season.
