I hear hockey's back. So, let's hang out, have a beer or two, and watch Hextall's kids kick the NHL's asshole in.

Sidenote: fuck Crosby.

At a wedding reception right now, but I'm in center city I may have to casually sneak out shortly after the flyers start. I mean who doesn't change their wedding date around the flyers? Disgusting honestly.

It's so bush league of the NHL for our season opener to drop puck at 11:00 pm local time.

Not a great period, not a horrible one. Just acceptable to start on the road against the Kings. I thought that Streit shot on the PP was closer than it looked in the replay.

So, who had Boyd Gordon scoring the first of the year? Great shot too, straight into the top right corner of the net.


And immediately followed by Coots off Konecny. Great!

At the risk of overhyping, seems like there's a lot of Kimmo in Provorov's game. Smaller guy but makes smart plays with the puck. Thought the little dump to center (after the Flyers had been pinned for 40 secs or so) was right out of the Timonen playbook.

I noticed a lot of Schultz (or pick anyone who fights the puck) in his game too, especially in the first period. Hopefully it was just jitters, since he doesn't have the reputation of someone who fumbles the puck so much

Yeah his first period was pretty rough but seemed like he settled in as the game moved along. Kings' forecheckers also have to be annoying as hell to play against, especially in your first NHL game.

Provorov is way too good on the puck, he was a little shaky early and admitted it in his post game interview.

Konecny and Provorov also seem extremely mature for their age.
