Flyers Week in Photos 3/28-4/3

To the relief of many fans, the Flyers didn’t have a lot of games this week. The team was mathematically eliminated from a playoff run making the rest of the season even more of a struggle to watch; not that it wasn’t hard watching them lose over and over again anyway. Being eliminated from the playoffs did offer the Flyers the opportunity to ruin the Penguins chances at home ice advantage without any worry about a playoff race.

In December, the Flyers lost to the Sharks by a single goal in a low scoring game. On Saturday, the Flyers lost in a shootout determined to keep their miserable shootout record in the garbage. Michael Raffl made it to the 20 goal club after poking in a shot from Nick Grossmann that deflected multiple times. Claude Giroux scored his 23rd goal of the season to tie the game which would go to the shootout where Matt Read and Sean Couturier would be expected to suddenly be good at the shootout. They weren’t. In fact, the decision to put Coots and Read on the shootout may be in the top ten of most hated Berube decisions.

Penguins fans are so angry about their team’s inability to beat the Flyers in their own building, it’s amazing. Before the game, Mike Milbury decided to offer his expert general managing advice and trash a few Flyers players including Vinny Lecavalier, the Schenn Brothers and Steve Mason. Every player that Milbury tried to trash helped the Flyers beat the Penguins yet again. Lecavalier ended a scoring drought  to put the Flyers on the board, Brayden Schenn scored twice on the night and don’t even get me started on Steve Mason whose .928 save percentage is 3rd in the league.

Maybe we should be thanking Milbury for the positive jinx he put on players who haven’t been so spectacular this season. Thanks for the boost Mikey!
