Wow, nice GDT!

Both teams are coming off bad games. Not sure which Kings team will show up, the one that shut out Colorado and San Jose, or the one that lost to St. Louis and Phoenix.

Here's to a good game!

Interesting game...

Apparently the Kings are the second best defensive team in the league. Even though they played last night and are probably tired, they got beat pretty bad by the Yotes so I'm still expecting a tough game from them.

I honestly don't know what to expect from the Flyers; I agree with what Briere said in his post-game interview about how if they don't compete and work hard and be aggressive on the forecheck they will disappear. I mean for a second just put all the skill that we have aside; one the reason why we've been so successful and effective is because we out work the opponent, we compete harder than them, and if we don't play like that we'll lose our identity.

i suspect NONE, cuz you'll still hate on him and find reason to say it was the team that did teh work not him..

personaly im beyond giving a **** what anyone here thinks about leighton, im just glad to hear he might finaly be in rotation (shame it is a game after their stop in Van, as i REALLY wanted to see him in net)

GO Flyers...
Seeing I'm a woman I won't man up. And as far as comments after the game, will you accept that he sucks when he screws up?

Well, if you're not giving a ****, then that's a reason that you fundamentally misunderstand the whole basis of the team philosophy of the goaltendning.

To reiterate:

That's EXACTLY why Michael Leighton is even in the NHL. The team does the work in front of him, and his job is to not completely **** the bed. After all, he's not even being paid $2M a year.

Theirs a very good chance that it could be Matt Carle's fault though.

I'm in the extreme minority, and I understand why, but I'm excited to see the Leight man back in action. Hope he plays well.

Thank you -- we're so lucky to have MSE take the time to do these every game! Such a treat.

I don't know what to expect out of the Flyers, but here's hoping it's a good game!

Well, no matter what, we'll have something to talk about with Leighton in net. Should be interesting, win or lose. If Timonen's in the lineup I'm not sure how he'll fare, if he's out of the lineup then he'll get destroyed I think.

Not wishing this, but if Leighton gets lit up in the first/ second - who's the backup?

So let me get this straight...Pronger is out, Timonen isn't 100% and Leighton gets the start?

We don't "hate" Leighton. He's just a garbage goalie.

edit: he's garbage as a starter. he's almost tolerable as a backup.

It really doesn't matter who is in nets as they are all pretty much equal. If the team doesn't play in front of them, then we are screwed.

Another awesome job by MSE on the GDT. I think the best part was the Jay Wells vs Dave Brown fight, truly epic (for me at least) because Jay was my Peewee hockey coach ! Hoping for the best expecting the worst today with leighton in net today

Wouldn't it just beat all if it took the first start by Leights for the Flyers to get their first shut-out? Not that I specifically think he's all that, but that seems like it would be something just odd enough to occur.
