Found February 22, 2012 on Rumors and Rants:
If the NHL wants to turn non-believers into fans, it wouldn’t hurt to have every game turn out like the ones between the Winnipeg Jets and Philadelphia Flyers. But given the impossibility of that happening, I’d gladly settle for seeing the two duke it out in a first-round playoff series. The two teams met for the fourth absurdly entertaining time this season on Tuesday night, with Philadelphia pulling out a 5-4 win in overtime. The Flyers sent the game into extra time in improbable fashion when Wayne Simmonds scored with 10 seconds left off an incredible feed from James van Riemsdyk, then won in overtime on a goal by the former owner of the greatest Euromullet in history, Jaromir Jagr. Other than the late heroics, it would be hard to argue that the Flyers outplayed the Jets. Winnipeg goalie Ondrej Pavelec stopped 50 shots, and the Jets were 3-for-3 on the power play. As entertaining as the game was, it’s merely par for the course for these two teams. When they met in late October, ...

Ty Anderson: Shut Nathan Horton down; Krejci moved to wing

In Philadelphia, an emotional Lauren Pronger met with the media. Not her husband, Flyers' captain Chris Pronger, who has not played for the club since Nov. 19. Chris, one of the most fearsome defensemen in the NHL even at 37, is nowhere near the club. It's not by choice. Pronger can't be near his teammates, he's not well enough. Suffering from severe post-concussion...

Take a look at what he did to keep...
