Flyers defenseman Nicklas Grossman made this incredibly lucky save on a point-blank shot from the Senators’ Kyle Turris last night in Philadelphia. With Grossman the only line of defense in front of a wide open Flyers net, Turris’ shot deflects off one of Grossman’s skates and ricochets off the other before the entire puck can cross the goal line. The Senators were neither lucky nor good last night, as they eventually lost to Philly by a score of 5-2.

Ted Nolan remembers what it was like to take a young team into Philadelphia.
The Flyers are tough, aggressive and their fans are passionate. It’s not an easy place to play. And back in 1995, during his first stint as the Buffalo Sabres’ head coach, he saw his team reveal its own grit and character in those games.
