Jets Defeat Flyers 9-8

I normally don’t point to game recaps, but if you missed the game, it was a wild one.  Every time I was about to change the channel, someone scored.

from Paul Waldie of the Globe and Mail,

Seventeen goals, three goaltending changes, one blown-four goal lead and countless crazy bounces. Throw in a hero goal in the last minute and it’s hard to believe this was a game involving the Winnipeg Jets. But it was and the Jets managed to hang on, just barely, to beat the Philadelphia Flyers 9-8 to in front of a cranky crowd at the Wells Fargo Center.

I had a goalie in this on my fantasy team.  My wife’s fantasy team had the other.  Sadly, I had the goalie that went the furthest, got the W, and STILL had much worse numbers for his efforts.  So while it gained me the lead in W’s for the week, it dragged my GAA and Save % ouside and shot them in the head repeatedly.

Last night may as well have been a fantasy hockey wake in our house.  We’re calling it Black Thursday…
