Panthers @ Flyers, Dec 20, 2010
That Holmgren really looks after those guys. He even hired a team of body doubles so they could have an extra long holiday break. Too bad he couldn’t draw from the AHL. Something about needing amateurs only, an emergency involving a plane grounded by a typhoon somewhere. Not sure what temp agency these guys came from.
You could see it on Bob’s face, a look that transcends language barriers, a look that says: “who the hell are these guys? Where did my team go?” I guess no one let him in on the plan to play hooky instead of hockey.
Lavy was very convincing. I almost believed he was watching the real Flyers fall down out there.
Nah, I know that was them. They just had a lot of inconsisting to catch up on. All that winning wears on a team’s sense of balance.
Oh well. I’ll take my cue from them and ignore this game.
But hey, Vokoun got a shut out. That’s nice. I like Vokoun.
Panthers 5, Flyers 0.
For the gory details, you’ll have to ask someone who gets paid to write them.
