Man, ANOTHER horrendous non-effort by everyone from start to finish on this PATHETIC roster! I hope Paul Holmgren is working the phones just to get a couple of ECHLers for the high-priced floaters. No heart. No effort. No scoring touch. Just really, really ...

Pardon? They what?

Oh, cool.

He was trying to do too much. Hopefully with the goal he will relax a little bit and not press so hard out there.

Definitely. He's playing more aggressively than he has all season. That bodes well for him.

A win is a win, and it was good for Giroux to get the monkey off his back.

I hope they get right back to work tomorrow and don't party all night and take the day off tomorrow. This team needs to put the work in still.

I think this is the first game this season that Mason played where he didn't have to either steal the game or keep them in it.

I think Giroux had more chances this game than in the last 5 games combined. He was also much more active backchecking after what happened last game.

His shot is heavy and accurate...a rarity 'round these parts.

Yeah, that was pretty cool.

Good to get a win before heading on the road. This team could use some time away from home. Hopefully, they get some teams playing some open hockey in front of their home crowds and the Flyers can open up.

Not saying it wasn't cool, but I thought he did that for every goal.

He does not. He was asked about it in his post game (Mason's) and he said he went up cause it was such a big goal.

Hmm, to comment shortly on the game, I thought Coburn had a really good game this time. But, again, it's his streakiness that bothers me. Grossmann was a rock this time, as well.

If there's a Streit bandwagon, I'm on it. If not, I'll start it. As for the other two new guys, Raffl was excellent on the PK, but he just can't get a shot on the goal for the life of him. Vincenzo has his up and down moments, but is, I think, still the best player on the team.

I did not care much for Giroux finally getting his first goal. Oh, and on a related note, I was impressed with Belov on the Oilers team. He also shouldn't have gotten a major for that check on Giroux.

I'm satisfied with the win, obviously, but I hate how they can't get a shorthanded breakaway going, there's always a pass gone bad somewhere in the mix. Same with the empty net goal. A lot of people were making fun of Carter on the Kings team when he scored an empty-netter. Well, it seems there's an art to that, as well. We haven't even begun to learn it, let alone master it. It's not crucial, but still.

Oh, and Rinaldo's play seems to have regressed under Berube. I don't know what it is, but he doesn't really seem to be his old self or what he was last season. He's making stupid plays again, and his passing has been terrible at times. But I guess with the team playing better, that's something we can live with.

I think it was you that I was talking to about him not being aggressive, and not trying to level anyone yet this season. Sure enough he tried to flatten someone in this game, and looked a lot more like himself.
