Looking Good


After a convincing win against the Red Wings the other night, the Flyers came out on home ice again to take on division rival the New Jersey Devils. They held a 1-0 lead for most of the game until Halischuk finally beat Emery. Then with great movement of the puck, Pyorala netted one to beat Brodeur high on his glove side. Nothing like beating the Brodeur and Co.

First Cuts and Pre-Season Action

The Flyers cut 29 players yesterday. Try-out players Mark Bell and Mark Foster were both cut while 19 of the players cut were assigned to the Phantoms; including Rob Bellamy, John Matsumoto, and John Kalinski. There were 8 players who were sent back to their junior teams which includes goaltender Adam Morrison and forwards Zac Rinaldo. One of the those players sent back was defenseman Tyler Hostetter but he was signed to a 3-year entry level contract before being sent down. It is nice to see for all of us JVR hopefuls that he is still on the roster and still has a legitimate shot at making the team after he’s been turning heads since the start of camp. Full roster cuts are available here.

2 Pre-Season Losses and Gagne Returning Tuesday?

Okay so it’s pre-season. Losing deciding games to Detroit 3-1 and to Toronto 4-0 last night. The good things to take from it is that it’s only pre-season, and the lone Flyers point was recorded by James Van Riemsdyk’s goal versus the Red Wings on Wednesday night. Emery was solid in the two periods he played on Wednesday; stopping 23 of 25 shots. JVR and Finnish tryout Mike Pyorala have been turning heads during camp as well as the younger guys hoping to land a spot on the Phantoms on Flyers. That being said, there isn’t much to take from these two games as hockey is a sport where line chemistry is a big deal and we haven’t played most of our veterans together so it is hard to see how they will pan out. They have tonight off before playing at Toronto tomorrow night, however the rest of the games will not be televised like last night’s was on NHL Network.

In other Flyers related news, Gagne is projecting his earliest comeback to the ice will be on Tuesday when they finally play a home pre-season game versus the Red Wings. I’m not holding my breath for this one. His injury is more of a nagging one so I’d rather him get rested and healthy so he can score 40 goals this season. Basically, hockey pre-season sucks and it’s boring.
