No chance of Storr tonight?

Risk of a letdown here, but I'll stick with the guys and call this one a 4-2 win.

LOTN, you are the man. Just out of curiosity, do you have a computer programming background?

I would still expect to see Niittymaki in net, but it wouldn't shock me if they gave 1 start to Storr.

I'm having mixed feelings about this game and think that the Flyers will come out a bit slow and even be down 1 or 2 goals, but will gut it out and win 4-2.

The real question for tonight is how many dives will Crosby take? My over/under is 3.

Sweet Jesus...nice GDT...


As for the Crosby dive counter, I'm taking 4 slashes to the face.

Thanks, why got a job offer?

Seriously though, i got some computer education in our equivalent of high school, other then that i'm self educated.

It's not hard (IMO atleast) and it doesnt take as much time as some people seem think.

You certainly won't get slammed here by any Flyers fans. Any lurking trolls however, that's a different story.

Dayaamn!

This GDT is enough reason to wish Sabres or Pens were playing Philly every night.

I fear a let down, too, tonight and I am sure the Pens will be jacked. But what better way to begin a streak of 11 straight road games than knowing a win puts you in first place. Lets go, boys.

P.S. -- Lion, superb job as always.

Time to DESTROY Pens. I predict 2 or 3 goals by Gags.

Sorry for my gloom and doom, but I am actually going to get to watch the game tonight, and my record in games I watch is about 9-31-7 in the past 10 years or so. I have seen two games so far this year, the 8-6 loss to Carolina, and the sorry 6-5 loss to Atlanta, so I predict a 7-4 loss.

Carters lasers start finding the back of the net. 2 goals and 1 assist for him tonight.

Flyers win 5-3

What on earth is Savage doing on the second line?

Just because of that I say we lose.

Great work as usual LOTN.

I think we'll win it tonight. We've got a healthy team and just came off a huge win. Let's keep the good times coming! 4-2

I'd rather see Jon Sim up there as much as that pains me to say.

I have no problem with Sidney Crosby. He is a whiner, but at least he took his teammates to task for playing like @ss. Doesn't bother me in the least. I do hope Hatcher erases him tonight, though.

I think the Flyers will win this game and should win this game, even though I am anxious to see how hard the Pen's play tonight after 4 practices with Therrien, in couple of months or so, the Pen's team should be a systematic machine(wow, weird saying that about the Pen's), but anyways should be a good game, anxious to watch.
