But the biggest surprise was how quiet the arena is. I've been to several Flyers games over the years and the place is always rocking. I know they aren't exactly having a great season, but the place was dead....except for when the "Lets go Rangers" chants started and they booed, lol.
As for the game, I didn't think we played a great game..but we won. We NEEDED this win. Lundqvist played well and made some big saves at the end, Jagr played an excellent game, the 4th liners looked good...however, the powerplay is still awful. It's the same stuff going on for the past five games. You could see Rozsival and Nylander set up with an open lane about 5 feet from Esche and not shooting...why? I get the whole cycling thing even though I don't agree with it, but that just seems like foolish hockey.
Nevertheless, we're 1-0 after the break and we gotta keep this up. This isn't exactly a rough and tumble stretch we are going through, so now is the time to take advantage.
Danno I was there this afternoon aswell. Your right it was like someone died in there. But man was that goal horn loud!!!!!!! Holy crap I was suprised at that. Were you down by the Ice before the game in the big group of Ranger fans. I was there, lol. We started the Lets Go Rangers chants and the Henrik chants.
Quote's from the day:
Flyers Goal scored by number 44 Joni Pitkanen....Guy next to me: Hey, he scored... Trade him while his value's up!!!
On the way out
Flyers fan: Go Home Rangers fans!!!!
My dad: Ok fine, and we'll take our 2 points with us.
