Shot of the day
Full set is here
Pix from last night's game vs the red Wings can be found here. My Friend Sandy took these pix.
his new mask is nice.. but didn't he just get a new mask ?
I thought so but now he has a different one. I dunno
Also...where is his Phantoms mask? LOL
LOL, I was gonna say, he got the wrong team name painted on it. The way he's played, he might need to have an ECHL logo slapped on there.
Backlund looks hugely improved. I think that he is staying to be able to work with Goaltending coach Jeff Reese. Jeff has been working all 3 goalies for 30 minutes before each practice. Almost all the Phantoms goalies have Flyers themed masks so he is keeping with the trend.
