Suddenly someone'll say, like, plate, or shrimp, or plate o' shrimp out of the blue, no explanation. No point in lookin' for one, either. It's all part of a cosmic unconciousness."

I'm more worried about Clarkson getting out of the way of Zdeno Chara bombs from the point than avoiding fights lol

I think there was a combination of things last night. Philly's quick start was probably helped by their timing being really good and the Devils timing being a little rusty. Then as the game wears on, the Devils timing starts to get a little better and the Flyers legs start to wear out because of the 3 games in 4 nights.

The unlucky first period for the Flyers probably doomed them as they likely needed to win that period to win the game.


I might not be giving the Devils enough credit for the win. But the way that game looked to me, it just seemed like the Flyers imploded under the weight of that disappointing first period.

Either way, good on the Devils for picking it up and locking it down. There's a lot to be optimistic about after two games.

FWIW, that's an AP story that TSN picked up. The same story is on ESPN's NHL page.

In any case, it's still relatively uncommon for the AP to use that kind of wording. Tom Canavan is the AP writer who covered this, and according to his Twitter, he's been covering New Jersey sports since '84.

Near Branford Place and Treat Place.. Been parking there for years with no issues

Thankfully, nothing was taken. Guy just broke the window and quickly searched the glove compartment and center console.. Like I said, he passed up on two $200 hockey sticks

He was probably a drunk or a junky looking for straight up cash for the next fix. Sucks about your window, but I'm glad nothing got stolen at least.

+1 for sure. I was not overly impressed with how we played, although we took advantage of our offensive opportunities enough to win. I was massively disappointed with Philly's effort; I thought they were a much better team than what they've showed in three games.

Looks like Schenn will be the first player this year to sit down with Shanahan about a questionable hit.

Flyers Brayden Schenn has a supplemental discipline hearing today for possibly leaving his feet on hit on Anton Volchenkov in 2nd period.

Gotta love the Flyer strategy when they're losing:

1) Take penalties, throw unnecessary hits, and try to start fights
2) ?????????
3) Win game


How's 0-3 feel? But hey, the strategy will either work, or you'll make a lot of stupid Broad Street Retards fans happy

I think Bryz left his brain in space. That Clarkson goal was a laugher. Instead of following the puck he focused on his lost stick and before he knew it the puck was in the back of the net. That's goaltending-101. Don't take your eyes off of the puck! Brainfart Bryzgalov.

What a glorious start to the season. Rags 0-2. Phailures 0-3. Devils 2-0.

That's a pretty tough save. Clarkson just whips it through the crease and it bounces off the defenseman's skate and goes into the far side corner. If it doesn't deflect in off his own player then the puck probably flies out of the zone. I think that shot's going to go by almost every goalie.

TG tweeted a link to the hit



Nothing blatantly bad, but he's borderline on leaving his feet, borderline on charging, and borderline head area. It won't surprise me if the league gives him a game as a message, rather than because the hit was actually that bad.

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

IBryz put himself in that position by taking extra time to go fishing for his lost stick. If he keeps his focus on the puck instead of trying to go after his stick he puts himself in a much better position to make the save. I think a lot of the top end goalies, or even more seasoned goalies would have forgotten about the lost stick and kept their eyes on the puck. He just lets up too many of those oddball goals.

Even if he was following the puck, what is he suppose to do? I rarely see goalies being able to react quickly enough to a player shooting from behind the net, off the defenseman, and into the far side of the net. The play is over before the goalie has time to react, even when they have their stick.

Goalies get beat on those plays when there are actual shots, it's that much harder when it's a deflection off your teammate and there was no Devil in front of the net to worry about.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

It looks like I stand corrected. From my seat it looked like Bryzgalov put himself way out of position by going after his stick but from this photo it looks like his head was at least somewhat focused on the puck. I figured if he at least gave up on the stick he'd be in a better position to have the puck hit him off of the deflection.
