mason once again comes through with timely saves-he is so huge for us.also not so long ago i thought couturier was overated-thought he had a good series against pens but besides that did not think he was gonna be great-i have never been so happy to be so wrong in my life-he is just growing as a player every game and is going to be a monster in this league for a long time!thank god hes ours!!
I also realized in the third that Chris Lee was refing this game & then things suddenly made sense to me.
Lee and St. Laurent.
how did that happen.
good win tonight. really thought they were doomed after they fell behind 3-1. Especially the way the goals have been hard to come by for this team. Thankfully Detroit forgot to defend in the 3rd period and the Flyers took full advanage.
NBC still have not picked up on how well Mason is playing. The only thing I heard them say about him was that he played three seasons for Columbus!
Coots is blossoming before our eyes!
Roenick was scoffing at the idea that Mason has been great, whenever game he was doing commentary with JJ and Clement he was on CSNPhilly earlier and Tocchet was rolling his eyes at JR for suggesting that Mason hasnt been the reason the flyers have been semi competitive.
I did not like the game until we scored our second goal and felt we now had a chance. I love Coots, Mason gave us a chance to win.
Hartnell had a nice goal and game hopefully he gets on track, now we need Ville Voracek to get on track
We take too many minor penalties, I wish we would have more fighting penalties
And Steve Downie has 16 pts so far....not bad for a goon
This is sarcasm for those who can't read the internet.
The way he plays is why I've always been so high on him. High level of compete. Strong as hell. Takes no guff. Gives a bit too much of it, which should be tempered as he ages. Sacrifices his body to make plays. Basically, a terror on the ice. He isn't going to score 40, but he's going to make the opposing team beat him. A true glue guy, like Read.
No wonder that line is clicking. They win battles.
