I think the ice was funny in that place." Lapointe made it 3-1 with one minute left in the opening period. Detroit led 5-1 after two periods with Brendan Shanahan scoring in the final minute of the middle period. Post-game, Flyers' head coach Terry Murray made his infamous "in a choking situation" comment about his team's play and among the comments was "Eric (Lindros, who had two third period minors) is our key player and I need more from him that we saw tonight." Murray was fired less than a week later, June 13th. Ron Hextall made 23 saves in the loss.

who cares if its pre season the time has come for hockey!!
09-15-2009 01:30 AM
It's been entirely too long since I've seen a GDT.
It always takes me a little while to get into Flyers mode until the Dodgers are knocked out, but this year'll be different.
Just please, Flyers, don't start off as bad as you did last year.
09-15-2009 01:33 AM
I have never been so excited to see a GDT.
Is there any possible way to follow this game in some way?
09-15-2009 01:53 AM
I think I may be more stoked about Hockey this year than ever before (if that's possible). After watching some football tonight, I am just really sick of the NFL. Everything is a penalty. "Taunting"??? Really? That's a penalty? You're not allowed to talk smack? Just ridiculous.
"Paddlin' the school canoe? You better believe that's a paddlin'."
HOCKEY HOCKEY HOCKEY!!!!!!!!!
09-15-2009 02:31 AM
I don't think I've ever been this excited for a Flyers season, ever. Cannot wait.
Hopefully someone gives us a webcast to watch because I really want to see this game. Should be interesting to see who plays and how Emery does.

Great GDT MSE. Even though I didnt post much in the previous years, I enjoyed every single one of them. It's beautiful to see them back up with a new year ahead of us! LETS GO FLYERS!
