Last night, I watched a great deal of the Philadelphia – San Jose game. That game ended up 1-0, San Jose. From what I saw, Philadelphia had the forecheck game going, and they had the Sharks scrambling around in their own end like very few Eastern Conference teams get them to do.
The more I watch of the Flyers, the more I like their style. Too bad, as a fan of a certain team, I can’t stand them. They go into any building in the league and they are not going to get run out of the place. San Jose Arena is a hard place to play for a visiting team, but Philadelphia is a tough night for an opposing team no matter where they play. It was a pleasure watching them pummel the Sharkies and camp out in front of the net. Only a great night by Niemi allowed SJ to win.
As a fan of the sport, Philadelphia is the kind of team you want to watch.
