No harm no foul in that fight. Take the P.o.s Simmonds out of the game before he does his sore loser antics in the final minute. Way to go Clarky!

Am I the only one that feels like we really got outplayed at points but Marty standing tall and the Flyers catching a bunch of bad breaks has helped us.

I agree. The Devs are very thin right now. They need a lot of help. You can't play a whole season with 2 and half lines. They need a complete 3rd line. Right now, they have a first line a shabby 2nd and a 4th.

Clarkson played a beast of a game.

And the Devils get Henrique back in a few games, and hopefully will add a forward. Again, I'm not worried. Lou knows what he's doing

Not trying to be a sore winner, just an honest question: Didn't the league put in a rule against fights in the final minutes of a game in which one team was well ahead of the other? IIRC, it all came around because the Flyers gooned it up against the Senators many moons ago. Anyway, do tonight's fights in the final minutes fall under this rule?

That's what I was thinking. IIRC, both players are automatically suspended for their team's next game, no?

I could be totally wrong but I thought that's what was established.

PP is rusty and some mental mistakes were had...but it's the 2nd game of the season and we won, so I'm perfectly fine with it.

Love seeing the Flyers get frustrated like that.

Yeah, despite the score I thought they were really outplayed in the 1st. Final two periods were much better.

We've gotten away with it so far but I still think the biggest weakness is that 3rd line with Carter/Gionta/Bernier. They had 1 shot between them despite logging 11+ minutes each. They really seemed to get outplayed a lot tonight.

Tedenby was also a no-show; no shots, only 7 minutes of ice time, and a silly penalty.

I think the coaches get hit with a fine too.

I believe if there is an instigator penalty in the last five minutes now there are suspensions and fines to the coach.

You're right, just looked it up. Rule 46.12 and 46.22. Without someone getting assessed an instigator, the discussion is moot.

Never mind, carry on.

Matteau could stay up all year, but I feel his development and our business will be better off sending him down to Juniors for the year. Seems like Darche will be signed to fill his spot and role. Either way I love his game and am excited to maybe not have Matteau be my least favorite name on earth after a few good seasons from him. Nickname the Devils Spawn or Spawn of the Devil?

That was fvcking great. Feels like we picked up right where we left off with those a$$holes.

Nice win. Devils played horribly in the first but bounced back in the final 2 periods. Some luck on the Clarkson goal and the penalty shot didn't seem entirely deserved but wow has Kovalchuk become money on those plays.

Love Josefson getting 17 minutes. Tedenby got stapled to the bench after his terrible point coverage + penalty - that seemed inevitable. It was fun when he wasn't in the doghouse though. Matteau - 3 shots again, makes some nice reads in the offensive zone, but in the defensive zone he needs work. It's going to be a tough decision but I think he will be sent back. Still, unless he regresses, won't be that hard to pencil him in on next year's team.
