It may only be one game that is in the books in this young NHL season, but it was certainly refreshing this evening to watch the Philadelphia Flyers play in front of a real goaltender.

It's been a long, long time since the Flyers had a shutout. 85 games to be exact. It's only fitting, then, that the supposed savior between the pipes ends the drought.

The three Flyers goals were scored by Claude Giroux, Matt Read, and Wayne Simmonds. Read's goal was the first of his NHL career.

Flyers and NHL fans alike all have to admit what I admitted to myself last night. It's strange to see Jagr in a Philadelphia Flyers uniform.
