I can't remember the last time the Flyers beat a real backup. I'm sure it's happened though. It had to have... right?

We beat Antti Niemi a couple of times.

The Flyers have lost to Curtis McElhinney, Brent Johnson and Mathieu Garon. I am willing to guess the list is rather short on the teams that have lost to those 3 goalies in one season.

I can't remember - was Niemi a backup or were they platooned?

If so, then that's probably the first backup the Flyers have beaten in a few years.

I used to joke that the Flyers were playing "Bob the goalie" whenever it was announced they were facing a backup. Because the Flyers now have "Bob the goalie," that joke is on hiatus. However, it seems to me that they fared better against starters than they did against their backups over the years. The only exception is Brodeur, whose backups have played like six games in the last 15 years.

It was a joke because even though he won the Cup, he's a backup now. And playing like one, to be honest.

Both goalies in the 2010 Final played like backups. Actually, Leighton apparently played with his back down and out.

Will miss this game. Flying back into Philly from Phoenix in a couple hours. Buffalo is beatable.

The Flyers need to win the last three games in October to replicate last October's record of 6-4-1. Let's go, Flyers!
