Flyers 4, Blackhawks 1

Not a whole lot to say here.  The Flyers are a damn good team.  The Hawks were due for a loss eventually. 

Meanwhile, John Scott dressed for the first in a few weeks and the idea of ‘rolling all four lines’ was tossed right out the window.  Not exactly the thing you want to do with a team like the Flyers who are incredibly deep.

On the bright side, Marian Hossa ended a 23 year drought by being the first Hawk to score on a penalty shot at home since Troy Murray at the old Stadium.  That is simply an incredible record. 

Apologies for the brief recap, but you can be sure to hear a whole lot more of our thoughts tomorrow night as we’ll join Chris Block at The Third Man In for his weekly podcast at 8 pm.

    I think Seabrook was still drunk during the game yesterday.

    Leddy is bigger than I thought. Kid has a nice burst of speed too.

    Brutal second period for the Hawks… thought the score line was a little unfair though. Hawks could have easily walked way with a point.

    The faceoffs we’re horrible, but I thought the Hawks could hold on. Oh well, if they’re going to lose, better to an Eastern team.

    I think that Scott dressed for Car Bomb, but they never danced. Man, Carcillo is a tool!

    Well, hopefully we’ve seen the last of John Scott til March (given the upcoming schedule).

    Agree with Otter that the Hawks could easily have walked away with a point. The first two Philly goals were unlucky screwups, but the 3rd was a terrific tap down by Carter. Nice to see Hoss end the penalty shot snide. Soup has been terrific all year, but Sunday he looked out of sync. Toews looked to be playing hurt (as reported).

    Leddy looks ok to me so far. Certainly an upgrade from the other guys on the third pairing.

    Playing Scott on the 4th line meant that you totally lost the ability of that line to play a speed game. Against a tired Philly team that would have been an advantage.

  5. Otter says:

    The problem with Scott is he can’t skate. And for all the toughness he brings, the point of hockey isn’t to beat up other teams, it’s to skate past them to score goals. John Scott isn’t able to do this. It’s a horrible signing and goes against everything the “New” Hawks have been about.

    Interesting article about the uselessness of players like Scott (written by an ex professional player)

    I think it has relevance to the hawks since Seabrook is the only one willing to ever hit somebody on a regular basis
