Before I get into my thoughts on the Sabres, I have to comment on the hit from Scott Hartnell on Andrew Alberts. Once again, another Flyer hits someone from behind. I dont want to call the Flyers a dirty team because I really dont think they are. But once is enough, two is pushing it and three tends to become a trend.

I didnt think the hit on Patrice Bergeron was that bad. Ill even call it accidential. But this was another disgusting act by a player that I happen to admire for his hard-nosed attitude. I wonder when players are going to learn a. to respect each other, and b. that the league means business when stuff like this happens.

I hope Hartnell gets the book thrown at him, similar to Downie and Boulerice.

As for the Sabres, another solid performance by the boys tonight as they beat the Washington Capitals 3-1 in Washington.

Jochen Hecht was by far the best player on the ice in what was his best game as a Sabre. 2 goals, an assist and a overall force all night. He, Mike Ryan and Dan Paille were a great line together, and Ryan and Pille were on tonight as well.

Brian Campbell was the lone sour spot, as he was schooled by Ovechkin on the Caps goal, and had a brutal giveaway shortly after.

Did you see the hit??? Or did you hear an arguement on it?? Your weak analysis on it leads me to believe you haven't even seen it. ALberts wasnt hit from behind... was it cheap, hell yes. was it another hit from behind...no, the guy was on his knees, and got hit when Hartnell should have/could have laid off of him. all in all your comments lead me to believe you just have bias vs the flyers or are a bit drunk.

actually, i happen to like the Flyers a lot, hence my disgust with the hit.And i did see the hit, he was on his knees and turned away from where he could see Hartnell. Last I knew, if your turned around where you cant see someone, that is a hit from behind.

Cheapshot on Alberts. Saw the replay, he was totally defenseless making a play on the puck along the boards from his knees and got sideswiped in the head into the board riser for nothing other than for one guy to show dominance over another guy who was defenseless. Totally sloppy and classless play.That stuff belongs in extreme fighting, not in hockey.

I'd be curious to know what the attendance was at the Sabres / Caps game last night. If I were a betting man, I'd have to day under 10,000. Sad ain't it?

Just another bruise on the face of the Philly franchise (no pun intended). Their quick start gave fuel to the fire that they've turned the corner but they appear to be average after their first 7 games. Their REAL problem starts in goal.

It was a strange thing. Alberts should not have gone to his knees there. Then Hartnell, who is skating hard, definitely slows up in what appears an attempt to not kill a defenseless player. Then, inexplicably, he decides to follow through with the hit anyway, pushing/elbowing AA's head to the boards. Strange play. Bottom line: He could have and should have avoided the hit altogether.As well as the B's played, the Flyers looked like an absolute disaster for a good portion of that game. Really looked like they were dreaming or drunk for a while. Took them 2 periods to wake up.And here come the Sabres. Only a matter of time really, they'll certainly be in the playoffs in my opinion. What a testament to last year's team that you can lose Briere and Drury and still be loaded up front. Shame they couldn't get by Ottawa.
