Wow What a Win!

So the Flyers just came back from a 5-1 deficit? I'm not sure I've ever seen that happen in my life. After listening to the first two periods, I shut the radio off because I was disgusted after listening to us give the game away to Carolina... after watching The Office, I check my fantasy team, and I'm shocked see that the Flyers have come back to tie the game at 5 by the end of the 3rd period. Scott Hartnell got things going with, what else, a shorthanded goal, and ended the game with a power play goal, a short handed goal and a even strength goal. Not a bad night. The Flyers killed off another penalty in overtime to force the shootout, which the Flyers are generally terrible in, but a Christmas Miracle happened and both Simon Gagne and Mike Richards scored while Nitty stone Rod Brind'Amour (still one of my favorite players) and Eric Staal (I think) to win the game. I'm pretty shocked.

but a Christmas Miracle happened

I know! What a game! It was so awesome, one of the best games I've ever been to.

Eric Staal (I think)

It wasn't Eric Staal in the shootout. I only remember this because Soph and I turned to each other and were like, "Why is he not playing E. Staal, the guy had two goals already!" But Carolina's loss is the Flyers gain... woo hoo!

Yea I didn't catch the name, so I guessed. It may have been Williams?

I don't really remember, but I think Soph said it was Tuomo Ruutu. I know you'll be able to sleep at night now, knowing the answer to that burning question haha

Aha so that's why I didn't fall asleep til 5:30 this morning!

Jess said...

Clearly. Oh, what would you do without us?

K-Mart said...

Well I know I wouldn't be going to Flyers games...

Jess said...

And I know you're counting the days until then... ;)

Soph's really good at getting people to go to games. Before last year, I would only go to one Flyers game a year... or none. I'm glad those days are over (though my bank account isn't!)!
