Nabokov backstops Islanders to win against Flyers

“We’re a good team.. Maybe the standings aren’t showing it, but we’re a good team who can play against any team in the League … but we have to find a way to play better.” Asked if the Flyers need a miracle to make the playoffs, forward Scott Hartnell answered succinctly: “Probably.” After a cautious first few minutes by both teams, the Flyers capitalized on a defensive breakdown to grab a 1-0 lead.. Voracek got behind the New York defense, took a 120-foot pass from Giroux and went in alone on Nabokov.. His backhander sat under Nabokov’s pads, but Islanders defenseman Andrew MacDonald slid into his goaltender, carrying the puck over the goal line at 6:28.. It was Voracek’s team-high 17th of the season and came on the Flyers’ second shot on goal.. Moulson tied it just over nine minutes later on a nice three-way passing play by the Islanders’ first line.. Tavares took a hit in his own zone to get the puck to Brad Boyes , who carried into the Philadelphia zone on a 2-on-2 rush.. Flyers defenseman Bruno Gervais cheated slightly toward Boyes, who slipped a pass to a briefly unguarded Moulson for a quick wrister past Mason at 15:36.. It was Moulson’s 13th of the season.. “Boyes made the play.. I just got it out and took a hit,” Tavares said.. “I think this is stuff that more and more myself and everybody just understanding that we have to make some sacrifices. source: http://www.nhl.com/ice/recap.htm?id=2012020582&navid=nhl:topheads

Philadelphia Flyers’ Goalie Drama Continues With Ilya Bryzgalov, Steve Mason

Ilya Bryzgalov fell asleep during a meeting

How many times have you fallen asleep during a meeting?. A lot of his teammates and coach Peter Laviolette denied that this happened.. Some members of the Philadelphia media even stated that they thought it was a fabricated story.. So is this story really newsworthy?. Perhaps not, but it does call into question the eccentric nature of the Flyers starting goaltender.. He’s definitely a weird dude, but I highly doubt he was actually sleeping during the meeting.. This also brings up the drama that is brewing between Bryzgalov and the new backup Steve Mason.. Mason relieved Bryzgalov in last Saturday’s game and he got his first start in Tuesday night’s game.. Unfortunately, both games the new goalie has played in have been Flyers losses.. However, don’t count that against Mason so quickly.. He looked solid in net on Tuesday, but you can’t win games without a bit of defense. source: http://www.rantsports.com/nhl/2013/04/10/philadelphia-flyers-goalie-drama-continues-with-ilya-bryzgalov-steve-mason/
