This is my first attempt at any type of blog here on HockeyBuzz. I've been a long time reader of the site and read just about every thing posted here. I've been wanting to do game previews and recaps for awhile now and I have finally went ahead and did it! I hope you enjoy it and I hopefully I can improve in the future.

A more graphical version can be found on my new website that I am slowly working on. http://www.jasonwinslow.com/flyers/gameday.html

So here we go ....

<b>Flyers 4 Islanders 1<br /></b>
<b><u>Game Notes:</b></u><br />
• The Flyers power play was on fire tonight going 4 for 7. Hats off to Terry Murray for finally getting the formula right without Richards. The PK wasn't bad either going 5-5.<br />
• It's wierd when the only plus players in a game are the losing team and the only minus players are the winning team. I guess thats what happens when you score 4 power play goals in a game. <br />
• Briere and Prospal finally seem to be getting a little chemistry going. DiPietro robbed at least 2 goals from them. If Carter cools off this line will be ready to go. Just imagine if Gagne was with them .... <br />
• The refs made a few bad calls including the hit on Upshall. The waved off goal was marginal. They hardly reviewed it. At least the game wasn't decided over it, so it's really not a big deal. The Flyers got away with a few as well.<br />
• I found it amuzing that after the Bill Guerin cheap shot on Upshall, the CSN Broadcast did a feature on him. Guerin took the camera on a tour of his new house on Long Island.<br />
• Steve Downie was scratched again in favor of 7 defensemen. I could think of better guys to sit but I won't mention Modrys name.<br />
• Scotty Hartnell was rockin' an Eagles hat during the post game interview.<br />
• This was Derian Hatcher's 200 game as a Flyer.<br />

<b><u>PreGame Notes:</b></u><br />
• The Flyers are 0 for 11 on the power play in the last 3 games. They still rank 2nd in the NHL at 22.0%. The Islanders are 28th at 15.4%.<br />
• The Islanders are 10 in the NHL on the penalty kill at 83.6%. The Flyers are 16th at 82.4%.<br />
• The Islanders are 11th in the East with 71 points, 5 points behind the Flyers. Philadelphia also has a game in hand over the Isle's.<br />
• Flyers lead the season series 4 games to one. The Flyers have outscored the Isles 18 to 11. The two teams will meet twice more in Philly on 3/23 and on Long Island on 3/29.<br />
• Islander's backup goaltender Wade Dubielwicz made his 3rd straight start on Thursday. Rick DiPietro has lost 3 of his last 4 starts and also allowing at least 3 goals each. However DiPietro is likely to get the start. Biron will start for the Flyers.<br />
• The Flyers are 100-86-26 lifetime against the Islanders. They are 60-34-11 at home.<br />
