It's unfortunate it cost us the game." Atlanta head coach Bob Hartley told Flyers' head coach Ken Hitchcock "Keep this one wrapped in Christmas paper. Wrap it in Christmas paper!" to which Hitchcock replied "I'll send you a card, I'll send you a kiss (Hershey, AHL reference)."

Niittymaki ended the season as one of only two active goalies with a perfect mark in at least 10 decisions against one team ( Detroit's Chris Osgood was 17-0 against Tampa Bay). The Thrashers scored two PPGs in the third period. Riley Cote (17 PIMs) fought Eric Boulton (5 PIMs) in a lengthy fight in the second period. Both players were issued fighting majors, but Cote also got an instigation penalty and a 10-minute misconduct. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C3bWlyUb5IA
  • 2009 -- November 28 -- Johan Hedberg made 34 saves and the Thrashers stopped a 14-game losing streak in this series with a 1-0 home win. Rich Peverley scored a PPG just past the midway stage of regulation. The Flyers entered the game with a record of 29-3-3-1 in this series and the 14-game win streak tied a team record for wins against one opponent (also against Los Angeles from 1978-1982). The Flyers held a 34-18 shots advantage including 25-6 in the first and third periods combined.
  • 2010 -- January 28 -- Atlanta scored three third period goals in a 4-3 win at Philly. The Flyers were 22-0 when leading after two periods. Johan Hedberg made 34 saves and Jim Slater scored twice including the GWG with 6:32 to play. Slater also scored the first goal of the game in the opening period. The Flyers responded with three goals in the second period to pull ahead 3-1.
  • 2010 -- March 20 -- at Atlanta -- 7:00 PM
  • 2010 -- March 21 -- at Philadelphia -- 7:00 PM

It is a sad, sad thing that we have yet to beat Atlanta this year. Let's change that.

I'm not going to lie to you, I have no knowledge of the history behind Led Zeppelin's music. All I know is that (to my ears) they didn't get awesome till they started listening to raggae, and from then on out all their albums all pretty much kick ass. In the Out Door, isn't popular with a lot of huge Zeppelin fans right? I love it, one of my favorite albums of theirs.

Need this win. Need every win, but this one should be good. I'm excited to see the Geezer. If only Hexy were here to jump him.

I think most hardcore fans sensed it was a direction the band headed if John Bonham didn't die after the album's release. Plant and Jones loved the album more so than Page and Bonham. Some fans like the earlier bluesy feel. This album had the radio staples "All My Love" and "Fool in the Rain" on it and the epic "Carouselambra." Maybe a little known fact: it was recorded at ABBA's studios in Sweden.

Is Colby Armstrong is FA this off-season? I'd like the Flyers to try and pick him up since he is a physical forward.

TCN sucks.

Why aren't the Flyers available to thousands of fans?

The God-awful 76ers that's why. The 11th place, 24-45 76ers led by scoring machine Andre Iguodala. Should be an exciting game though - what with the Sixers coming off an exciting loss to the disgracefully horrible Knicks tonight and facing a really exciting sub-.500 Bulls team. I'm sure there will probably be plenty of big dunks and uncontested three point shots. Two teams going nowhere and everybody has a guaranteed contract. Why any moron would watch this garbage game - especially while the NCAA tourny is on - is beyond me.

Crap game in a crap league. ESPN would tell you it's a great product though.

Biron sucks worse that Boucher. Ugh what a softy.

They want to see the anger as they attempt to get TCN on all basic cable. Soon they will see that it is for naught. No one cares about Comcast's own news network.

Other than being the channel the Flyers, Sixers or Phillies get bumped to the programming is garbage.

Yes he is but IMO he's stealing money. He's making $2.4 million & will be UFA. Dude only has 25 points & IMO he's a puss anyway. Big hits, then runs to the bench.

TCN's picture is insane. Like why the hell is it so friggin' dark to watch and why can't they have a picture like CSN?

The biggest departures from their earlier blues-rock were more due to Plant and Bonham disintegrating and Jones doing more and more of the actual work. Sure, Jones had differing tastes and influences but at a certain point he was the only one coherent enough to guide the bands musical direction. I like their late period stuff but most critics agree that the drugs began taking their toll and the keyboard driven late 70s/early 80s sound on some of their songs were largely due to Jones being the go to guy.
