RT @NHLFlyers: Per Flyers GM Paul Holmgren, Boucher replaced Leighton at the start of the shootout win in Toronto. According to Holmgren,

RT @NHLFlyers: Leighton was experiencing a back issue. The team is cautiously optimistic and Leighton will be re-evaluated when the team returns to Phila.

If you count the shootout, that is three games in three nights. Generally, that is frowned upon and likely the thought process of Leighton scheduled to go the distance per Jeff Reese.

what a goal shootout goal by Giroux.

If anyone has a link I think it deserves a thread on the main board.

That was some one-sided story telling... lol. All the Flyers goals came off unfortunate bounces and the Leafs got robbed (which they did, but the bit about the unfortunate bounces is over the top; if the goal that didn't count had counted, I wonder if that would have been told as a lucky bounce, and WHAT OF one of those other Leafs goals, banged in from the side of the net, from where it bounced from off the goaler and players about the net... lol )

Possible strained lower back.

http://www.csnphilly.com/09/24/10/Le...015&feedID=695

Quote:
The big news out of Toronto on Friday night wasn't that the Flyers went a third straight shootout in preseason, but rather the status of goalie Michael Leighton.

Leighton apparently strained his lower back during the overtime portion of the Flyers' 4-3 shootout win over the Toronto Maple Leafs at Air Canada Centre.

"He has a lower back issue and we are cautiously optimistic," general manager Paul Holmgren texted CSNPhilly.com.

Holmgren said Leighton would be re-evaluated when the team returns to Philadelphia.

The Flyers have a team quite capable of making a repeat stand as a Stanley Cup finalist this season. The very last thing they need is a goalie injury although Brian Boucher, coming in cold, was outstanding in the shootout on Friday and rookie Sergei Bobrovsky has been very impressive in training camp. If either of the veterans were unavailable for the regular season's start, "Bob" as teammates call him, would undoubtedly be on the roster.

Looked at the highlights of the 3rd (which I missed). Thought Wellwood played well in the first 2 periods. ALMOST had a goal and an assist this game. I bet he gets another looked at for another game.

I actually thought Testwuide had a very good game tonight, much better than last night, not that he was bad just didn't impress last night. He and Nodl looked like NHL players while Powe and Carcillo were pretty much invisible.

The Briere, Nodl, Testwuide line seemed to take control of the game when on the ice and that had a lot to do with good responsible play by Nodl and Testwuide to get puck control, get the puck in the zone and gain control below the goal line. I'm not ready to put him in the top six but going by what I've seen in preseason so far, I'd take him ahead of Guerin, Powe and Carcillo. Obviously that could change quickly and we need to see more.

If I had to rank the Forward play tonight I would rank it like this:

1a Giroux (looked like a magician the whole game not just shootout)
1b Briere (was in playoff form)
3a Nodl (looked a level above the other AHL and 4th line guys including Powe and Carcillo)
3b Testwuide (I was very impressed tonight, he looked like he belonged there and seems to be a smart responsible player with all the tools needed to be a solid top 9 guy)
3c Wellwood (seemed to have a lot of takeaways, speedy, pleasant surprise) Apparently, Lavi noticed because he got moved up to Giroux's line.
6 Zherdev (you could see the skill but I kind of think he was little lucky on the goals and he fumbled the puck a lot tonight, he actually seemed to be a liability on Giroux's line until the goals.)
Not impressed by the other forwards.

Why would you think I'm making fun of Leafs fans or trying to be biased? I expect it from any team's fans. There have been many here who have gone and done the same thing. It's only natural. My comment was not at Toronto's fans. Just at the nature of these boards. You can expect something like that most of the time, that's all I was "sayin'."

I truly try to look at these things objectively. In fact, rarely (if ever) do I go into a thread on the main boards and go on about the Flyers or their players. Only when it is deserved. It's classless, homerism at it's finest and I loathe it.

After listening to those Leafs commentators, I hope that one day Giroux will be as good as Kadri.
