Recent Flyers Pwnage
The NHL has gone ahead and uploaded a ton of NHL highlight footage to YouTube. In other words, this is a perfect excuse to post some great Flyers games I've caught this year (and a few great endings from last year's playoff run).
The best Flyers comeback I've seen perhaps ever, and certainly the best third period ever - came just a month ago on December 11, 2008. The Flyers were at home and behind the Hurricanes 5-1 going into the third. That was simply unacceptable.
This is a gem from last year's improbable playoff run against the Capitals. Game 7 in Washington. Regulation ends tied 2-2. Overtime. Winner moves on to the semi-finals. Lupul. Do the math. Saw this in a hotel in Atlanta and nearly jumped out a window.
And in the semis, here is the clinching game in Montreal, when the upstart Flyers stunned the top-seeded Habs on their raucous home ice, 6-4. And RJ Umberger, who has since moved onto the Columbus Blue Jackets, dished out a massive EPIC WIN playoff scoring performance that will go down in the annals of Flyers history as one of the most memorable post-season performances in recent memory. Sweet.
