UPDATE ON ALBERTS' STATUS:
http://www.hockeybuzz.com/blog/Tim-P...lberts/2/17247

Andrew Alberts arrived late from Boston and is going to take warm-up. He may play tonight but it's not a guarantee.

"We don't have plans to put him in now, it might be a bit much to ask," Stevens said of Alberts. "HE doesn't have a lot of experience but he does have experience. He's a bit older. We played against him in the lockout year in the playoffs [versus the Phantoms]. He's a big guy with mobility and he gives us some size ... He helps the depth on our back end.

"If you look in the East, there's a lot of big teams here. Washington is a big team. Rangers have a big team. Montreal has some big, strong forwards. I think size and a guy with mobility like that can be a very valuable resource to have. I don't he will ever be an offensive guy, but he can get the puck and make that first pass and be a good defender."

One option the Flyers might have is to turn to veteran Derian Hatcher, who is on the long-term injury list.

By rule, he must miss at least two weeks, or six games, whichever comes first. Hatcher still might not be healthy enough to play, but the team docs did clear him when his knee was the same as it is right now last season in the playoffs.

With Jones and Parent going onto the long-term injury list, Hatcher's salary would almost equal out (Hatcher makes about $200,000 more than the two of them combined), which would work for the Flyers salary cap-wise and would allow them to keep Sbisa, without having to add another contract.

In short, something has to happen. The Flyers can't burn out their two go-to defenseman Kimmo Timonen and Braydon Coburn, who combined for almost 51 minutes of ice time in the opener.

At least Holmgren seems prepared to explore options.

Henri Richard scored the GWG with 7:53 to play; Yvon Cournoyer sealed the win. Montreal outshot Philly 34-20, including 16-7 in the decisive third period.
  • 1974 -- February 17 -- Inspired by a bench-clearing brawl after the second period, the Flyers rallied with two unassisted third period goals to tie Montreal 2-2 in the Forum. The brawl lasted nearly a half-hour and started when Pierre Bouchard tangled with Bobby Clarke. As the clash escalated, Larry Robinson defeated Dave Schultz in a fight and local police came onto the ice to clear the photographers who mingled with the players. Earlier in the period, Schultz knocked out John Van Boxmeer with one punch to the nose and a lasting image of Van Boxmeer sprawled on the ice. NBC was supposedly upset that the bench-clearing brawl interfered with the length of their broadcast. When broadcaster Tim Ryan said that Clarke had the reputation of being a "dirty player," commentator Ted Lindsay said "He isn't dirty. He has guts. If you don't have guts and you can't take it, you don't belong in hockey." After the game, Clarke said "We love to brawl and that put us in the game" while Fred Shero said "The fight inspired us. Normally when a guy (Schultz) loses a fight, you don't dare talk to him. But our club is different. Even when they lose a fight, they kid each other, they think it is a joke." There were 91 PIMs assessed. Bob Kelly (suspended one game for "starting a general melee" according to Clarence Campbell, as he was the first player to leave the bench), Andre Dupont and Serge Savard were ejected. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HZmRW...11&Fight=21769

  • 1996 -- February 1 -- Eric Desjardins' OT tally with :30 remaining gave the Flyers a 3-2 win. The game was marred by an ugly incident when Montreal's Marc Bureau drilled Petr Svoboda with an elbow causing blood to pour from the back of Svoboda's head. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2dJOxIBe5LI .

  • 2004 -- April 1 -- Sean Burke stopped 24 shots as the Flyers won in Montreal, 2-0. It was the 35th shutout of his career. The Flyers reached the 100-point mark. Two key players returned: defenseman Eric Desjardins was back after missing 32 games with a fractured forearm and center Keith Primeau after being out 21 games with a concussion.

2005-2009:
  • 2005 -- October 25 -- Mike Ribiero tied the game in the third period and scored the GWG in OT in Montreal's 3-2 home win. The Flyers took a 2-1 lead on a pair of PPGs in the second period.

A kneeing penalty on Mike Richards at 18:51 of the third period put Montreal on the PP. With Carey Price pulled for an extra attacker, Jeff Carter’s stick broke on a faceoff in the Flyers’ zone and Alex Kovalev scored his second goal of the game with 28.6 seconds left to knot the game at 3-3.

The Canadiens outshot the Flyers 36-23. Biron stopped 28 of 29 shots covering the first two periods. In the game, Tom Kostopoulos threw a punch at Kimmo Timonen. Flyers' Head Coach John Stevens called the punch “cheap” and Richards termed it “gutless.” Montreal Head Coach Guy Carbonneau said Timonen deserved the hit because he smirked at the Canadiens after the Flyers scored a goal.
  • 2008 -- April 28 -- In Game 3 in Philadelphia, Martin Biron's clutch goaltending and Philly's three second period goals sparked the Flyers to a 3-2 victory. Trailing 3-0 after two periods, the Habs yanked goalie Carey Price for Jaroslav Halak and were revived when they scored two PPGs in 71 seconds during a 5-minute major to Derian Hatcher, who was penalized for boarding and issued a game misconduct at the 5:17 mark when he slammed Francis Bouillon into the glass; Bouillon was cut near the corner of his right eye. Each team killed a penalty as the final period progressed. In the second period, Mike Richards' unassisted SHG gave the Flyers a 2-0 lead and R.J. Umberger followed that with a goal. Prior to the game, Dave Mustaine of Megadeth issued a video greeting to the Flyers after a Washington Post columnist made a critical reference about the Flyers' fans related to the band.
  • 2008 -- April 30 -- In Game 4, Martin Biron sizzled making 36 saves and Danny Briere snapped a 2-2 tie with 3:38 to play on a PP in the Flyers 4-2 win. The Flyers scored in the second and third periods to take a 2-0 lead but Montreal recorded a pair of goals within 37 seconds (12:59 and 13:36) late in the third. R.J. Umberger scored an ENG with two seconds to play, his second tally of the game, to finish the scoring. Montreal outshot Philly 38-26. Jaroslav Halak started for Montreal. Mike Knuble (hamstring injury) returned for his first action since Game 5 of the Washington series.
  • 2008 -- May 3 -- In Game 5 at Montreal, the Flyers eliminated Montreal 6-4 and advanced to the Eastern Conference Finals. Scottie Upshall scored with 3:04 to play to snap a 4-4 tie. The Canadiens scored the first goal of the game for the first time in the series and led 3-1 in the second period. However, Philly scored three times in the second, starting with Mike Richards’ goal at 14:02 which closed the gap to 3-2; a video review upheld Richards' goal as he put up his left hand as an R.J. Umberger shot sailed past him and Carey Price. The Flyers evened the score at 3-3 when Umberger scored his second goal of the game then Scott Hartnell scored at 17:00 gave the Flyers their first lead of the night, 4-3. The Canadiens tied the score at 4-4 early in the third period. Martin Biron made 31 saves. Umberger (2-1-3), who celebrated his 26th birthday, finished the series with eight goals and one assist in five games.

32 Riley Cote -- 27 Steve Downie -- 45 Arron Asham

I hope Stevens starts the game with this line..... if Downie's ready to go, of course.


Great job, MSE!

Dear Flyers,
Please win. Or, at the very least, don't look like utter crap in the first period.

Dear Marty Biron,
Please don't look like utter crap.

GO FLYERS!!!

I never like to predict Flyers games, for me it had become like bad luck.

With that being said WHEN you are wrong can I mention it .

I expect a strong outing.

ANYWAY...



For all you Sbisa buffs, with him playing with Coburn, obviously expect big minutes out of him. Tonight will be the best (early) read we can possibly get on him. I hope he does well.

Hopefully they play Sbisa & Cobourn together again, they looked good together. I thought Ossi was very steady for us and will work well with Timonen. Kukkonen & Eminger need to get it together, I thought Eminger had some good moments but overall he did not play a good game. Kukkonen didn't get any ice time, and when he was on the ice he looked bad.

Marty needs to do better if we're going to win tonight.

Well, consider this an early Christmas present.

News of the day? Coach John Stevens changed his defensive pairs ... Luca Brasi, err, Luca Sbisa, has been moved off from Lasse Kukkonen and paired with Braydon Coburn. They played together in the second half of the Rangers loss.

i think we'll be able to look for goals like richards's from briere all year...hopefully the third and second lines can shake out and start to click. i really hope guys get put into spots they've earned, for good or bad (ie knuble).

people say the carter line is handcuffed but i think carter's developed enough to the point where he doesn't need to be the best player on his line as evidenced in the past. this is where my seemingly out of place mini-rant on the lines comes from. if he's really worth it, he'll finally not have to be the best player on his line to do something (even though that may very well be the case, though in a more positive light).

it's late. hooray for classes all day tomorrow!

OK, I take full responsibility for the loss against the Rangers--by the time I got home it was already 3-0. The good news is, I will be home for all of this one. We're winning, that's a guarantee.

Awesome GDT as always MSE.

1996 -- February 1 -- Eric Desjardins' OT tally with :30 remaining gave the Flyers a 3-2 win. The game was marred by an ugly incident when Montreal's Marc Bureau drilled Petr Svoboda with an elbow causing blood to pour from the back of Svoboda's head. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2dJOxIBe5LI . The Flyers' Craig MacTavish later retaliated and beat Bureau in a fight. The Flyers held a 13-1 shot advantage after one period, 30-6 after two periods, and 39-14 in the game.
That I remember, it was brutal to watch.
