Tragedy Strikes Toronto

Posted February 6, 2010
I am a father. I have four children who are individually and collectively the biggest and brightest pieces of my life. I ache because I cannot do more for them.

Once again I took notes through the game and provide my opinions on what I saw here. PERIOD ONE Back to Philadelphia we go and the Flyers are down 2 games to 0. It's not how they wanted to be coming home and as this period has gone on, that energizing crowd has been fairly tame. I was expecting to be hearing the roof coming off regularly, and to be fair, the Pens getting the start they did... Read More »
