Loving every minute of this game. The first weeks of December were so frustrating to watch. The Panthers game was one of the worst experiences I have ever had watching the Flyers, including losing to Sid the Kid two years in a row. Knowing they should have been playing so much better, but they just weren't getting it done. But this...this is fantastic. This is actually more than expected. This is the type of play I expected from the very start of the year, and its great to see them playing a system! A pressure system in fact, which is even more gratifying for me because it is the exact system I preach with my middle school team and will preach with all of the teams I coach in the future. (I am 23, so hopefully it's many more)
On another note, I know the coverage of the winter classic practices start tomorrow at 11 am. Does anyone know which team will be on the ice first? I am resigning my countered offer on a house tomorrow at 10 and was hoping to get in an hour at the gym too, so I was hoping the home team gets to go first. I remember last year the Hawks choosing to go on at the actual game time so they could decide which way to defend. If the Flyers go on first I will just push my gym time back to the afternoon...or just skip it haha.
