Indeed, every game I've tuned into, even the Florida game, the announcers have been praising Joni. And that move he made in the third period, just skating past the d-man (who looked like he had no idea Joni was moving that fast) was great. Definitely looks like the best Flyers rookie in quite some time.

I only caught the third period (beer brewing called before that!), but it was nice to tune in and see the Flyers already up 3-0. The Caps looked awful, though, even when they turned it up a bit in the third period. And Jagr was invisible, even with the godawful announcers (their color commentary guy has the most annoying voice I may have ever heard from a broadcaster) trying to point him out. "Here comes Jagr...and he loses the puck." Still, Esche had some nice stops, and the D held for the most part. Now, the Flyers just need to keep this up. They need to remember what two little points, heck, one little point, cost them last year!
