The Flyers came through with my Christmas presents. I got a win and Scott Hartnell's autograph.
Thanks to Theresa and Brooke as always great hanging out with you guys.
I thought the Flyers came out really strong. It seemed like Stevens was trying to match lines especially with the change to Mike Richards line of having Hartnell instead of Umberger. I thought that was a good change from the aspect of Antropov is just a really huge guy and Richards was up against the 2 ton Leafs Line. I was happy to see all 4 lines roll until well into the 3rd period.
Carter's goal with that sweet heads up pass from Hartnell was awesome.
There were definitely lapses in the Flyers good play and they heard it from the fans when that happened. I definitely would have liked to seen the Flyers be a little more physical in puck battles in their end of the ice. Times when they were more physical they won those battles and possession.
The Leafs seemed to try to goad the Flyers into penalties with shoving etc. The Flyers for the most part were smart on those attempts.
Marty Biron I just can not say enough about Marty Biron's game tonight. He was just absolutely stellar.
This was a great team effort for 50 minutes. I hope that they can build on this in Florida this weekend.
