I was impressed with three Flyers tonight, the rest were well.....average tonight.
Derrian Hatcher had his best game since leaving Dallas. He really kicked our butts all over the ice last night, and this is from a team that has feasted off his wheel-chair like pace for years.
Mike Knuble may be more important to that top line than anyone really expects. It seemed to me he really was the leader on that line.
Nittymaki has a penchant for making the big saves (the Kariya save in OT was stellar.) He needs to work on his 5-hole, but otherwise, great reflexes.
And just for the sheer beauty of it, Pitkanen's attempted wrap-around was oh so close. I thought it was a goal. Other than that, though, I didn't really notice a lot of stand out performances.
The Flyers played hard, but I feel the Predators truly beat them tonight.......and for a change controlled the play most of the way. Still, great game, and the Flyers almost eked out a win there in the end. I would love to see a rematch with Forsberg, Primeau (although I'm not sure how long it will take him to recover...hopefully he gets back soon), Walker, Timonen, and Markov. Esche will provide about the same as Nittymaki, IMO....
Until next time
