Thank you god!
Replace Nodl for Shelley and the Flyers fanbase will have a collective orgasm that would make Billy Penn cry blood.

I only watched the 1st period really... but thank God we're (hopefully) done with the Richards-Carter BS.

We've now had, what, 82 shots in the last two games?

Things are going to be turned around.

Well, after last night's game:

Shots Against Per Game
1. Philadelphia - 25.0
2. St. Louis - 25.7
3. Pittsburgh - 26.1
4. Toronto - 26.7
5. Detroit/Calgary - 27.0

Goals Against Per Game
1. Boston - 1.83
2. St. Louis - 1.86
3. Florida/Nashville - 2.00
5. Pittsburgh - 2.22
6. Montreal - 2.29
----------------
16. Philadelphia - 2.71

Shots Per Game
1. San Jose - 35.5
2. Tampa Bay - 34.9
3. St. Louis - 34.6
4. Boston - 34.3
5. Calgary - 33.7
----------------
7. Philadelphia - 33.3

Goals Per Game
1. Tampa Bay - 3.43
2. Detroit - 3.29
3. New York (I) - 3.25
4. New York (R)/San Jose - 3.17
6. Dallas - 3.14
----------------
20. Philadelphia - 2.57

What does all this tell me? We're doing everything right, but it's not translating on the scoreboard right now. That suggests that this is just an unlucky streak, and we'll pull out of it eventually. You're going to lose many games if you're shooting 35~ and holding the other team to 25~.

Well, we have a team SVPCT of .891 right now... and, unfortunately, I don't necessarily expect that to improve a ton. .891 seems low, but I wouldn't be shocked with a low .900 SVPCT, and that will minimize a lot of the good that you do.

I don't think that .905 is out of the question. The team defense is going to keep shot totals low and it seems that the defense, while doing a great job most of the time, has a habit of giving the other team a few insanely good scoring opportunities each game. A combination of low shot totals but several great chances is going to keep the save percentages low.

And the cheapies. Don't forget the cheapies.

As noted, though, I don't think team defense does a great job of protecting SVPCT (or hurting it)... it does a great job of protecting GAA.

The new lines as of tonight....if I was Laviolette:

Leino-Briere-Hartnell; best line through the season so far
JvR-Richards-Giroux; if you have to move Giroux to win I guess this would be the most logical
Powe-Carter-Zherdev; maybe they can achieve gettting eachother off the schnide?
Shelley-Betts-Carcillo; best shifts of the night were these guys on the ice together, getting a forecheck going and just playing their game

Why? I don't care where JVR is. Richards or Carter doesn't matter much to me. Powe looked good with Richie and Roo, so keep him there.

Or just leave JVR there? Why make the minor change? Your post was entirely about swapping Powe and JVR? Why?

Best shifts of the night were clearly Hartnell - Briere - Leino.

Because JvR and Giroux have played well together, putting Carter and JvR is once again relegating a player to have to play with the shoot happy Carter, when JvR is a similar type player, so why not put JvR with some guys who will get him the puck. Carter and JvR is the last possible line combo I want.

Cause Powe is a SOB to play against, he goes to the boards, will crash the net and does not need the puck on his stick, and is defensivly sound....a perfect complement for Carter and Zherdev.

Yup, physical on the d-men, made the guy handling the puck pay for looking up ice and were able to establish the cycle a couple of times. This is what you want from a 4th line, and good/appropriate line changes.

That is what I said before as far as the best line, but the 4th line did their job and put together some strong forecheck.
