I am steaming that their is absolutely ZERO accountability for this team to give a 40 min effort under John Stevens. The team is full of good , young players (less Knuble), their is no reason for this inconsistent effort, Sure their will be times where you play bad, but at least try. Can't wait for Stevens press conf.,
So predictable by the way. You people couldn't show your face here after game 2 of the playoffs. Ooooo regular season victory!
not trying to start anything but good game u guys gave me a scare with that third goal...but ya a regular season victory still counts its a new season and ya u guys owned us in po's no denying that but a couple of factors played heavily into flyer's favor...mainly umberger becoming price's glove hand's pimp but not to beat a dead horse good game had me on the edge of my seat. good luck rest of the way...
The habs are a great team, but they didn't play so great tonight. We handed them this one. We had a 2-1 lead, were dominating the game at the time and had our foot on the throat, and we missed many many chances to put the game away (cough knuble cough)
We had a solid effort, but once again we didn't execute and capitalize on the chances that we were given by the Habs. Sbisa continues to be awesome, Vaananen was solid, and Eminger and Kukkonen blow. Andrew Alberts can't come soon enough.
Didn't watch much of the game tonight...but he's now been on ice for 5 goals in 2 games. From what I saw tonight he has the wheels and puck handling ability, but he's a half second slow with frequency making decisions -- got him plowed by Kovalev of all people tonight -- and has been caught defending no one on a few goals.
Well this time we tried to play 40 minutes but did not play last 20.
Kukkonen is not at fault this time. Second goal by Habs was ALL Briere skating away from the puck as well as Kostitsyn. Who passed to Kovalev and in the end Briere totally blew coverage on Hamrlik. What a pathetic d-sive player he is.
Eminger managed 4 penalty minutes.
Knuble, I do not know why people like him. Must be that "loyalty" crap? He can not even unload slap shot. All alone in front of the goalie(who is down) and our 2.8M man can not score or control that puck. He is 3 steps late.
Biron.. good save bad save. Good save bad save, terrific save
But I am ok with all that. No system is a problem. PP is not clicking like last year and all of a sudden Stevens does not look like a genius. D-sive coverage is blown on every other shift. We can not outscore teams liek last season and we must play some D but we can not.
Good game by Carter and Upshall much better effort.
Flyers play 5 more games against playoff teams. Will be fun
Sbisa should be in NHL but next year. With Eminger and Kukkonen on the roster we just can not afford that many turn overs and mistakes.
I think we were very lucky that Habs PP is still a little off.
