The Flyers have a quick turnaround as they face off against the Devils. While the Flyers were busy notching a win within the first 7 minutes of the game, the Devils were off giving up a natural hat trick to Joffrey Lupul. It could have been worse for the Devils thanks to an amazing save by the ageless relic known as Marty Brodeur. Keys for tonight’s game and the sick save by Mr. Brodeur after the jump…
Now that the first month of the season is over, it is going to be interesting to see how this team holds up considering the team is either young and new to the NHL grind or old and beaten up from the from the long, drawn-out NHL season. With Briere, Read, Schenn, and Pronger out, you can only hope that the rest of the team avoids getting bit by the injury bug. We’ll see after the jump if the Flyers lineup, which consists of 5 rookies tonight, will hold steady against a formidable Sabres team.
The Flyers GM has never been one to sit on his hands and hope that things work itself out. With that, there have been reports that Paul Holmgren was in Columbus yesterday, but for what could be anybody’s guess (Detroit played Columbus last night). After the jump, I will give you some possible scenarios to let your mind race a little before the pre-game write-up for tonight’s game against the Habs.

For years leading up to this season, it seemed the only major chink in the Philadelphia Flyers armor has been goaltending. But hiding just beyond eyesight of many and deep within the armor itself was a bruised farm system, greatly affecting performance with its inability to provide the right type of spark in crucial moments.
The Flyers have obviously altered their game plan in order to achieve positive results, and their efforts have yielded a perfect 3-0 start to the season. At the core of this success has been youth and goaltending.
