I'm starting to think he is even though he said he isn't, his mushing might be getting worse there could be a hangover period now as well.

I feel like you can flip a coin with these challenges, and get a close approximation of what the call might actually be.

So, what, are we going to spend the rest of the game with the man-advantage as some sort of haphazard, post-coital apology?

Well, that game never should have made it to OT, and the refs made sure of it.

Gotta love the NHL.

Or not. I'm going to go with not.

Just saw the no-goal calls. What fucking bullshit is this?

I guess it's good that they got back up, but it would have been better if they hadn't gotten into the hole in the first place. Hopefully things will get better from here on out.

Some real bad calls in that game, but we did suck at the beginning.

Sanheim had a rough game in particular.

Hey, they won. That's good. Some very nice goals there. But why the fuck does one of our guys always have to get injured. Ghost was boarded by Komarov halfway through the game. Of course no call. Ghost did not play the third period. Hopefully he'll be alright.

I understand it's a long season, and there are going to be bumps along the way. But the non-call was fucking stupid. If you're going to give Gudas fifteen minutes for his hit the other night, this one sure as shit deserved at least two. Then again, it's a long season, and the NHL is going to NHL.

That Giroux-Couturier-Voracek line is freaking awesome to watch, don't think we've had a top line that's played like this for quite a while. Even when Giroux and Voracek were at the peak of their powers, they never quite had that 3rd guy.

If they can somehow cobble together a functional middle-six, the forwards look quite decent all of a sudden. Think that Konecny-Patrick pairing had some potential before Patrick got hurt.

To FlyHigh's point, in 2012, Giroux/Hartnell/Jagr finished with a combined 131 ES points. In 2006, Forsberg/Gagne/Knuble finished with a combined 133 points.

Right now, Giroux/Voracek/Couturier have a combined 33 ES points through 11 games played.

I don't expect for them to continue at this pace, or for the entire group to go the entire season without some injury, but IMO Hakstol's three-headed monster has been exceptional.

Morin has been recalled, which does not bode well for Ghost's situation. Meanwhile Komarov did not get a summons from the DoPS. Imagine that.

Team does seem to have life in the third but now just seems too little too late. Can't play one period and expect to win.

GOOD: Couturier, Giroux, Voracek, and Provocop

MEH: Rinaldo, Cousins, and Schenn combined for 0 shots on goal.

I don't know what to think. I kind of expected this because hey, it's the Flyers way, but still sucks. I guess it's good that they dug themselves out of a 3-0 hole, but that was rather unnecessary, particularly against the worst team in the league. At least good to see Weal back and scoring.

Yeah, kinda hoping that plays like that OT rush (and some of his casualness on the d-zone side) will start disappearing as he figures out that he can't do some stuff in the NHL that he could do in the AHL.

Can definitely see the potential at least.

Please let me not say "spoke to soon". Shitty sequence there, a bit of bad luck by Hägg :/

Also am I seeing this correctly that the Flyers haven't had a single PP yet?

If only that had helped. Were two really obvious calls too. Best reaction was the second Chicago penalty. Guy in the box can't believe he got called after skating straight through Provorov's legs with absolutely zero puck involvement.

Bounces really fucked us today. First the puck jumping over Hägg's stick which lead to Toews' PP goal, and just now the puck hopping over Laughton's stick on a prime opportunity.

Patrick being out of the lineup really hurts our 5 on 5 forward play can't wait for him to get back.
