Flyers lose three straight. Time to fire the coach again.

Reimer should start the next game after tonight's performance.

Evening all. Missed the game other than the 1st 10 minutes.  Left for hockey when game was 1-0 . I thought we were playing great.  Im not surprised that we won but kind of surprised by the SOG disparity

Obviously Riemer had a great game. Rielly ,s stats look great, how was his play?

What a great game by Reimer. Really glad he came out and battled as most of us expected he would. I like that he's a guy who thrives on competition, and he's definitely earned himself the start on Thursday. Rielly keeps getting better every game, Leivo looked excellent tonight, and Ranger is starting to settle in. Look out folks, we're not even healthy yet!

Wow SJ beating STL 4-0. Thought that game would have been much closer.

That makes us 2nd highest scoring team in NHL.

@Spayde_D Grabo has 6 points in 6 games, playing 2nd line at ES, 1st line on the PP. 

Bozak has 5 points in 7 games, playing 1st line at ES, 1st line on the PP.

@Spayde_D I suspect Bozak to be leading in everything important like points, faceoffs, team wins, not being European.....

@-Keon- Total, yes. He has one 1st assist and two 2nd assists.

@DWCMLHS @Jordan29 @Spayde_D Here's the thing though....individual stats in and of themselves never win games.  At the end of the day, winning is the only stat that matters.

@Jordan29 @DWCMLHS @Spayde_D LOL. Chemistry. Bozak doesn't have chemistry with his linemates. He's good for ~30 points less than Kessel over a full season. That's a one-sided partnership. 

And team stats like wins are not indicative of individual players' performances.
