Found October 07, 2013 on The Pensblog:
Taking a quick look around the Metropolitan Division. The Canes lost to Detroit in OT in their season opener and then beat the now 0-3-0 Philadelphia Flyers on Sunday. The Isles have beaten the Devils in a shootout and lost to the Jackets in a shootout. The Jackets lost to Calgary and then beat the Isles in a shootout. The Caps have lost to Chicago and Dallas with that emotion come-from-behind win against the Flames sandwiched in the middle. The Devils have lost to the Pens and Isles. The Rangers. Wow. We actually can't even recall hearing they've even played a game yet this year. Apparently they lost a game to the Coyotes on Thursday. Totally forgot that the Flyers didn't make it to the playoffs last year. They have started the season 0-3-0, and Claude Giroux is goalless and pointless. This week, the Pens have the Canes at home then face the good old Florida tour over the weekend.

Getting late early in Philadelphia

Three games and six days. That's all the time Peter Laviolette got with the Philadelphia Flyers before being dismissed Monday morning, thus becoming the first coaching casualty of the 2013-14 season.

Final Observations: Montreal Canadiens 4, Philadelphia Flyers 1

O’Connor’s Observations His stats won’t show it, but Ray Emery played a great hockey game tonight. This game easily could have ended 6-1 or 7-1 without numerous Emery stops. Despite the fact that he gave up more goals than Mason did on Wednesday, Emery had the superior performance. Poor play at even strength and way too many penalties doomed the Flyers tonight. Montreal finished...

Photo by Grant Halverson/Getty Images O’Connor’s Observations After a poor performance on Saturday night against the Canadiens, the Flyers looked even worse on Sunday against the Hurricanes.
