This PK thing is ridiculous, opposing PPs just have free passes into the slot for easy shots/redirects on a nightly basis. No idea what AMac was doing there.

If you had either of your normal goalies in tonight you win that game. Shit like this happens though with injuries.

Honestly, even Stolarz might have been the difference. Relying on your fourth string option isn't a recipe for success. Someone get Neuvirth some Imodium pronto.

Lappy definitely should be updating his resume right now. I think there's very little chance he isn't gone at season's conclusion.

Man, if Lehtera was even an average skater he’d be a pretty good player. I like watching him, he’s just way too slow.

Laperriere should not survive the off-season. Filppula should not be re-signed. Manning should not be re-signed. And Lehtera may never see another game in a Flyers' sweater beyond this season. So, yay for silver-linings.

Don't forget Matt Read takes a walk after this season.

WIth the cap going up, gonna have some money to work with this offseason.

Also, Morin has been out all season so re-signing him will be cheap, and at the rate Hagg is going he's not going to get a huge pay increase when they re-sign him.

Don't know who tweeted it, but I saw someone referencing a reporter having heard some time ago that the Flyers front office was targeting 18-19 to make a real push. So, this summer will potentially be interesting.

EDIT: If any of you assholes are playing Fortnite ... gotta say, getting a solo win in that is among the most adrenaline inducing video game moments I've had in quite some time.

Would say that would depend on who they wanted to replace him with. I'd prefer to keep him, though.

It's not crazy to think the Flyers have a chance to win the division. We have been playing a lot better lately and seem to be gaining ground every night. Do I expect it to happen? Obviously not, but it isn't out of reach.

Chance? Sure ... but it's a miniscule one. 8 pts in 28 games (tough schedule with a lot of division games) is a tall order. 2nd place, though ....

Just looked at the game highlights. Of course Rinaldo scores and Cousins scores in the shootout. Hilarious that we won an easy game with that much hardship. Hopefully Elliot is alright. Patrick starting to look real good too.
