An old friend of the Flyers continues to troll them after another tough playoff loss

Will the consistent Philadelphia Flyers show up this season? The proud orange clad fans packed the Wells Fargo Center Sunday with the hopes of seeing their beloved team take control of the playoff series with the Pittsburgh Penguins. Unfortunately, the Flyers took too many penalties, and just aren’t receiving the help that is needed from their veterans corps in Sean Couturier, Claude Giroux, Jakub Voracek, Wayne Simmonds and Valtteri Filppula.

Let’s give Couturier a little break here, as he played over 26 minutes yesterday. Mainly due to the fact the Flyers couldn’t stay out of the box. Oh yea Brian Elliott wasn’t horrible yesterday, but he didn’t make that save like he did on Friday night in the Flyers 5-1 victory in Pittsburgh. Things couldn’t get much worse could it??? Unfortunately, the Flyers old friend in Ilya Bryzgalov has continued to troll the orange and black.

Are you serious Bryz???? Thanks for coming to the game, but you have to be kidding me. Bryzgalov sure wasn’t lights out in a Flyers uniform. For his career as a Flyer, Bryzgalov ended with a career 2.63 GAA, and a dismal .904 Save Percentage. Yes, this is funny that he keeps trolling the Flyers, but this should really rally the troops for a complete effort on Wednesday night.

The Flyers can even the series with a complete effort. I’ll say it again a complete 60 minute effort. They need their veterans in Giroux, Voracek, Couturier, Simmonds, Filppula, and Elliott to step up. The majority of the young guns have played well with their first taste of the NHL playoffs. This can be our time. Let’s show Bryzgalov who we really are, and come out with a, “Humongous Universe,” effort the rest of the series.

  1. Connor,

    Thank you very much for your comment and read. I share the same frustrations as you after yesterday’s 5-1 loss. This is funny stuff by Bryz. The one thing that disturbs me well, Bryz wasn’t very good. Yes, he won us a playoff series in 2012, but look who we gave up for Bryz??? Bob…he seems to be the forgotten piece.

    The day we signed Bryz I was mad. Mad at the fact we let out future go. So if Carter Hart comes in does ok like Bob, but doesn’t meet his full potential in 2-3 years do we go after a Bryz again. I would hope not. That’s the difference. We wouldn’t be talking about this right now, as we would have a two time vezina goaltender on our team. Hopefully we come out with fire Wednesday.

  2. Say what you want about the guy, but the fact that 6 years later we are still having defensive break downs and full game break downs (remember the Devils Series?) where he even has a chance to troll us is super pathetic, and shows he really wasn’t the only issue. If I were him, and was getting paid millions of dollars by the Flyers while this team embarrasses itself every other night, I would do the same exact fucking thing, its too easy not too, AND we deserve it. He’s making us look like idiots. Sit Manning and bring in Hagg, then for love of god please please please put TK on the first line where he belongs. I mean his goal on friday should have moved him up for fucking saturday, he is ready to go, his line mates are simply not. Hakstol is a stubborn mule…… Also why do we have to get our ass kicked in our own building to get fucking motivated? Wheres Jake? Wheres G? What the fuck is going on? If you can’t get up for these games, get the fuck out of the league, Carolina would have done better.
