So I'm reading the game notes from the Flyers and I find this gem...
PHI radio color commentator Chris Therien played 11 regular season games for the Stars in 2003-04 and was a key cog in Dallas’s
trip to the 2004 Stanley Cup Playoffs. His number has not yet to this point been retired by the Stars.
Oh man, Chris Therien. He makes me grateful for Woywitka.
He was the last of the dinosaurs. I still don't know how he survived the lockout (asteroid) and continued to play in the 05-06 season with all of the newly dominant mammals scurrying about him underfoot.
So I'm reading the game notes from the Flyers and I find this gem...
0_0 major lololols.
He had a pretty funny quote after we lost to Colorado that year in response to Tippett. Tippett told the media you aren't going to win a series if Chris Therien is your leading scorer. After he said that Tippett felt bad that he might have slighted Therien in the media, so he apologized. Chris said "what are you apologizing for, it's true," or something to that effect.
As for Fistric, Crawford said there appeared no reason to change the defense after the 5-0 win over Chicago.
``It is tough, but that's part of his job,'' Crawford said. ``He's been absolutely wonderful with staying sharp and staying upbeat and positive, and that's important because we all know it could change like that, and you have to be ready for that.''
There was CLEAR reason to change after the San Jose game, yet he didn't. So why use that as a reason. *rolls eyes*
I hope Kari gets his first win against them, or maybe crawford could have turned to raycroft for this game, anybody know what raycrofts career numbers are against the flyers?
Kari confirmed for tonight. Only way Raycroft plays again this season is if Kari gets hurt or we're in a position in the last 3 or 4 games that we can rest some players. I think we all know which one is more likely.
