He played much better tonight. Both he and Scott looked more settled in. Plus he jacked up a rag which is always a good thing.

I'm not sure. What say the rest of the Flyer fans?

He was pretty good. He skated hard and made smart, safe plays with the puck. All you can ask really. I like him better than Rinaldo in the lineup. He's bigger, a better skater and doesn't get penalties called on him for his reputation.

Sestito played well too. I'm not going to get crazy and say that Shelley was good just because he didn't directly cause a goal against.

That was where I thought I could win this.

Guess not.

The coaches have decided not to conduct a practice tomorrow (Friday). It was undecided prior to the game.

How great it is not having to worry about goaltending. Bryz has been very good so far this season. Kudos to him for starting off well and hopefully he keeps it up.

Ditto. He looks very confident and is moving well. The quick leg in the second on that shot off the quick wrister from the slot was his best tonight.

One small thing I noticed, though, was that Bryz hugs the post too much, with half of him over the red line. With the number of own-goals on inadvertent redirects, I'd like to see him stretch the opposite leg out along the goal line.

Does the exact same thing as Rinaldo except he is bigger, doesnt take bad penalties, and can actually fight.

Nice game from a lot of players. Couturier looks like he's gonna be a 2 way stud!

Couturier was so strong on the PK tonight.

Bryzgalov stats during the second half of last season:

18 - 8 - 1 with 2.01 GAA and .946 Save Percentage.

That last number is off the chart. If Bryz even played at his career average during the first half of last season (.916 Save Percentage). He would have finished with a save percentage in the neighbourhood of .930.

I'm not surprised how well Bryz is playing. I also like the fact that they played a real defensive gem tonight. This is how they should be playing in a shortened season - lock it down and play every game like it's a playoff game.

And I have to admit, I'm very impressed with McGinn. He might have earned a spot on this club for the next little while. He's a big hitter, plays within his limits and is a very physical player. He's Sestito, but with ability and great skating ability.

So glad I went to the game, right behind the net! Got to see both goals right in front of me, but I think the crowd was the loudest during that PK, every clear was like a goal.

Very good game to be at...luckily I didn't sell my ticket! I'm glad the team tightened the D up and paid attention to details. I concur with those saying Shelley played well...he wasn't fast but played smart positionally. Bryz looked like March 2012 Bryz. So far 2013 Bryz is looking much more confident in net.

The only bad thing about the game tonight were the two fans behind me lamenting that Flyers shouldn't have never gotten Bryz but made Leighton and Bob 1 and 2 respectively...

another great game for couturier. he's looking like one of our best defensive forwards already. the fourth line was pretty good tonight as well given its makeup. sestito and shelley both looked pretty stoked to be playing at all.

bryz had another great showing. the only goal was off another unfortunate pk bounce and an unstoppable backdoor shot. his save on nash during the 5 on 3 sealed the game.

the rangers don't look that great in the early going. this was a great win and a good place for the flyers to start given the recent history against the rags but they have to grind a bit harder. they're not gonna win many games on only 2 goals.

Sestito was great. Like him on the 4th line regardless of who's available. Wellwood is fast, but that's literally it.

One of the biggest insults tonight I heard from Flyers fans against Ranger fans was

"How is Nash working out for you guys?"

Nash pickup may have messed their chemistry up.....but too soon to count him and the Rangers out but they don't look all that great so far. Having played Boston last night probably didn't help their cause tonight but Flyers still played very well collectively.
