- 4-1 win is always good. Beating Flyers also good. Dominanting the shot clock and owning possession against what should be a decent hockey club very good too.

-Pacioretty and Gallagher involved in two goals, both take delay of game penalty and both get sent to the dressing room by the Flyers in the third. Hopefully they'll be fine.

-Bourque elbows his way to a free goal. That call went our way after a bunch of injuries didn't get calls.

- Ho boy did the Flyers look bad tonight. TImonen is probably playing hurt and their defense is horrific past him in Coburn which probably explains that, plus the back to back.

-Plekanec is awesome.

-Budaj didn't piss away a winnable game. Horaay!

There weren't many recs going on so I went with the ones I liked best for the three stars for comments:

By TrevaDaddy: 7 broken ribs, be back by Tuesday.

By Scott Matla: God PK is so selfish, going to the box by himself... his team clearly hates him

By Punkster: PJ has the whole Paul Reiser from Aliens look going

-Well deserved win. I hope their aren't any casualties from the third period.
