Saw the highlights. Good win by pulling through. Didn't need to be this close though but great job by Jake playing hero. The Patrick goal was also a beauty of a passing play.

Holy crap, go hiking in the desert for 10 days, come back, Flyers are solidly in a playoff spot, Lindblom is called up, Patrick is scoring and Giroux is pulling skate-to-stick moves in actual NHL games, etc...should probably head back out there for a few months and we’ll win the Cup or something.

CsC that mush was actually at the game, so at least we know DP and Dee cancel him being a mush out. But that would be appreciated if we could ship him out during the playoffs.

So that’s why it took overtime. Flyers were far better for most than of the game.

If Snider were still alive, you can bet he'd try.

Can't believe that this team is a point off the division lead after losing 10 straight earlier in the season.

That sequence with the empty net was exceedingly weird. I guess the first pass was because they tried to give Couts a goal (he's on no. 99 for his career currently). Why Jake would again try to pass it to Filppula again though is weird. Anyway, still won.

I don’t understand the logic of hating Hagg. It’s his first season in the NHL. I haven’t given up hope for him improving.

I think it's just because he's up and Sanheim isn't. Hagg definitely has more room to grow than Manning. He's offensively a black hole right now but hopefully that will improve with some experience. Right now he just seems to always make simple chip up the board plays and doesn't try to do much with the puck. He's leading the NHL in hits though which is cool for a rookie.

MacD-Hagg and Manning-Gudas are pretty ugly pairings though. One downside of having Prov and Ghost up together.

Hagg is up and Morin and Sanheim are not. that is the reason for the hate. I think Hak probably plays him too much and gives him tough minutes and he has struggled with it.
I don't hate the guy like others do. I think he is fine in the 5/6 role with minutes that are not as tough. He is still growing as a hockey player.
Remember years ago when we wondered what it would be like to have an elite top pair. this is what its like. the bottom 4 needs work, but it is baby steps.

He looked fine, made a couple good saves but wasn't tested too much. The D played pretty well in front of him. He's a pretty small guy, but very quick.

Couple unnecessary goals against at the end there, but good win overall.

Hey, at this moment we are tied for the lead in the Metro. Who would have thought that three months ago?

Giroux's goal was filthy. He's got so much swagger back this year.

Hagg's goal was nice too. Manning is an offensive dynamo.

Phils management seems to know what they're doing. They should get there. They also have a much better ownership situation than they used to, and a metric ton of cash to work with.
