Post-game Eminger article in the
Steve Eminger had his first chance to show the Washington Capitals they were wrong for giving up on him tonight, and he made good on it. Eminger had an assist on the game-winning goal and nearly had two tallies of his own in a 2-1 win for his Philadelphia Flyers against the Caps.
"[It was] preseason, but I felt like I was pretty jacked up for the game," Eminger said. "I wanted to make a good impression, and I wanted to win."
Eminger logged 22:06 of ice time, which was third among Flyers defensemen behind Braydon Coburn and Kimmo Timonen. He saw significant time on both the power play (his assist, a perfect diagonal pass to Joffrey Lupul came with the extra man) and the PK.
"I am pretty happy with getting to play special teams," Eminger said. "When you get a chance you just have to take advantage of it. You canít just relax on it; youíve got to do something. I donít know what is going to happen during the season, but when I am out there I just want to take advantage."
Eminger, who is now wearing No. 26, even got into a couple of shoving matches with his former mates. Well, one was with Jay Beagle, but he also got in a pretty good shot on Alexander Semin near the end of a play.
I started a thread regarding Downie's injury. Knee, termed "not serious" and out maybe two weeks. MRI to come.
