Brotherly Puck Weekly Issue 9

SCORES & REVIEWS

2/4 vs VAN    Carter Hart stood on his head making 41 saves as the Flyers took their win streak to eight with a 2-1 win over Vancouver.

2/7 vs LAK    Even though the Flyers didn’t play a great game, they managed to force the game to a shootout. Claude Giroux turned Jonathan Quick inside out, but the Kings were too much for Stolarz and the Kings won 2-1.

2/9 vs ANA    The Ducks came into the game only winning two games in their previous 22, so it felt like a trap game for the Flyers. Luckily, they didn’t get caught up and the offense continued to stay hot as they won 6-2.

STUDS & DUDS

STUDS

Carter Hart– The kid is as legit as it comes. He has made 40+ saves in two of his last four games and it has been eight games since he has registered a save percentage lower than .900.

Travis Sanheim– Even though his offense has cooled, he is seeing over 20 minutes of ice time a night. He has really developed into a star since Hakstol got canned.

Anthony Stolarz– Even though it is just a small sample size, Stolarz has really stepped up his game with Hart around. This could be a great tandem for years to come.

DUDS

Jori Lehtera– He was finally sent to the Phantoms, hopefully he stays there.
