no offence, but Jagr was pretty much only forward who was getting into scoring chances tonight, it didnt end up with goal but i wouldnt call him slowing down while whole team plays like crap, get your facts straight

Jagr did have a strong game. So did Simmonds

Good to hear. Jagr has been disappointing the past few weeks, so good to see he got a good game in.

I loved the road hockey toe save while he was trying to pick up his stick.

I thought Brayden Schenn was our best player last night.

honorable mention for the save on Thornton who was all alone on the change of direction play to start the 3rd.... bailed them out .. that would have been game over

Kings fan here. I watched the PHI vs SJ game and man, does Simmonds play like that every game for you guys?

In LA, he talked a lot of trash, beat guys up and would always jump in for his team mates. He still likes to crash the net, has excellent puck skills down low and is like Gumby when he has the puck.

But in addition to all of that, the guy was just wrecking havoc in front the SJ net. Taking swings at guys, causing mayhem all night long... does he always do that this year? Reminded me of Tocchet in that regard.

It's like going to a team that gave him more opportunity unleashed some unstoppable beast of destruction....

** side note - please no comments on Richards or the trade. I personally am happy with Richards and think he'll be an important piece of the team for a long time.

Yes, Simmonds has been playing like that virtually the whole season. Everything you wrote is pretty much spot on, especially the bolded part. Homer even said after the trade that the Flyers felt "there is more there" when it came to Simmonds' offensive potential.

Simmonds has a unique skill set and style and understands his role on the team. Earlier in the season he was trying to be cute with the puck and looked like an idiot in doing so, but he's now back to being a mucker, grinder, and all-around thorn in the opponent's side, especially in front of the net. Basically all his goals come from within five feet of the net and are the result of pure determination (I've taken to calling him "the garbage disposal"). Simmonds is willing to do the dirty work that not many other players are, and he's definitely one of the toughest dudes in the entire league. All out effort every shift, every game, and gets the most out of his ability. He's simply been a treat to watch and should be an integral part of the Flyers' core group moving forward.

He got to see the puck pretty well and used his size accordingly last night. Sure makes a big difference when he can get a little north of his crease, tough to get there with big bodies in front. Was also nice to see him hang in there after the Clowe goal.

i dont deny i fancy Jagr, but he was really getting into chances and making some, it just didnt end up with finish as i said

pretty much whole team was looking sloppy, unable to make a play, but Jagr still did. But no use without goals i agree.
Tho putting Briere to 1st instead of Roo had no effect, mby it was worse, can't tell, but Roo was really invisible
