As Santa leaves town, hockey’s most prestigious trophy will be arriving a few days later, thanks to a former Flyers Coach…now an assistant with the champion Los Angeles Kings.
You win some and you lose some, but these losses hurt and they hurt bad. And let’s be honest, Sunday’s match against Portugal felt like a defeat …
Well, the stage for the Lord Stanley Cup Playoffs is set. The first puck will drop at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Wednesday where the Kings will take on the New York Rangers. As you might imagine there are dozens of ecstatic fans of both teams here at CBS Local Sports National headquarters. We do, however, have one resident hardcore Chicago Blackhawks fan; Field Operations Manager Stan Pillman who has a few things to say about last night’s loss. Here are the top five things Blackhawks fans are saying about last night’s thrilling Game 7 loss, according to Stan.
Ron Hextall’s opportunity to be an NHL general manager was coming. The Flyers decided to speed up the process.
“I just think it’s perfect,” Holmgren said in a press conference on Wednesday.
Flyers will reportedly promote Ron Hextall to GM, Paul Holmgren to team president.
Giroux missed a point blank opportunity from the slot late in the second period on Wednesday night’s game 7, sailing the puck high over the net.
After staying alive with a very impressive, 5-2 win over the Rangers in Game #6 of this series, the Flyers will battle the Rangers tonight at Madison Square Garden in the decisive Game #7.
On yesterday’s show I said some things that in hindsight I regret. I called for the Flyers organization to put a halt to using your imagery and voice when singing ‘God Bless America’ before games.
The Philadelphia Flyers have no doubt they will be back at Madison Square Garden one more time with their season on the line.
The Flyers will try to even up their first-round playoff series tonight as they host the Rangers at the Wells Fargo Center.
Jeremy Roenick and now Flyers coach, Craig Berube, were both with the Flyers organization late in their careers. The two had their differences when Berube, or “Chief” was with the Flyers and Roenick was with the Blackhawks. Berube always promised Roenick he’d get him, and when the Flyers acquired Roenick, Berube got him.
After evening the series at one game a piece on Sunday in Madison Square Garden, the Flyers and Rangers series shifts to South Philadelphia and the Wells Fargo Center, in one of the most hostile environments in all of hockey.
The Rangers are 0-2 at the Wells Fargo Center this season against the Flyers and understand what the atmosphere will be like come Tuesday night for a pivotal game three.
Steve Mason will not dress for game three against the Rangers.
