2 great periods.. 1 awful period but let's just enjoy the win boys..

Any of us would have said this morning that a win in their building today with the injuries we have would be great

I don't really care that the devils still won this game. That third period up until like the last 3 minutes is absolutely pathetic. How do you get outshot 17-1? Well actually they got outshot 24-1 at the end of the game.

This is why our goal differential sucks. We never finish games off. No lead is safe for us because we just stop playing and let the other team make it interesting every time. I'd like to see a stat of how many games we've won by more than 2 goals. It seems like if we get a big lead, we let them come back. And if we fall behind, we fight back to win by 1 either in regulation or after. We can never just win confidently.

3rd period kind of puts a damper on what could have been a good game. Just goes to show that you can't take a game off let alone a period off in this league against a good team (Boston has shown that you can't take off 3 minutes).

Devils looked gassed in the third. Once they turned the switch off, it was hard to get it back on. Kovalchuk was definitely a guy you wanted on the ice late in the 3rd. That fighting major almost turned very costly.

2 big points though.

Meh it's just typical Flyers hockey though.

They goon it up, somehow end up on the powerplay after slew footing Parise (still confused about that one..) and force the Devils to play the 3rd-4th lines.

I'll take it. A BIG W, and no injuries after going up 6-0 on this trashy team?

Big win.

NJD had 30 shots through the first 2 periods and just 1 in the 3rd. PHI had 17 shots through the first 2 periods and 24 in the 3rd.

Gotta love Kovy though:

we lost to Bryz 4-0.

That matters A LOT. 2 points for Bryz, zero for the Devils!

Oh wait...

Who gives a sh!t how they won. They won. End of story.

Was everyone here really that worried? The Devils won in regulation, scored 6, and there were no injuries. Clearly the Devils should have kept running Zach, Kovy, Elias and the other tops guys out there for top minutes in the 3rd to keep it 6-0 to appease everyone. I mean, the Flyers would NEVER try to injure our guys or cheap shot them after the whistle. :rolleyes:

Our third period letdowns are still haunting us. We just got to hold it together.

Cant blame Pete Deboer for limiting our ice time for the top players given the way Philly is

Kovy was the last guy I thought we would see dropping the gloves today but I like what he did...just wish he caught someone else like that instead of Schenn.

24-1 Shots in the third period. Absolutely pathetic. I'll take the win but that COMPLETELY spoiled the way this team played this afternoon. Can this team ever fvcking play 60 minutes of hockey!? :rant:

I miss Doc. Could you IMAGINE the level of gleeful exasperation in his post-game "they had 'em all the way" today?! It would have been epic.

They scored more than 3. What are you complaining about? Clearly that's your only concern. :lol:

This has nothing to do with that. The team didn't play at all in the 3rd period. That's it. And yes, I was worried and if you weren't, you're an idiot. The Flyers needed to get 2 goals in about 6 minutes. You think they can't do that? Given that this team excels at choking away victories, I see no reason not to expect us to give the Flyers the greatest 3rd period comeback in NHL history. Don't try to make excuses about it. We played a great 2 periods and then embarrassed ourselves in the 3rd.

Why is everyone whining about this? We won.

If this was a playoff game, we would be up 1-0 (or if you want to count the season series then 2-2). The number of goals don't count but the wins do.

That is true. They usually win when that happens, no? :cheers:

I do. And it matters - with more experience you'll see that wins can tell a lot about the weaknesses of the team just like losses. Not being able to finish has been a problem of ours all year. We won that game - great - but we lost the third again.
