This was the Flyers reaction after winning a regular season game:
It is October 21st, by the way.
The Flyers won 5-3, but for some reason this game doesn’t feel as bad as it normally does. The game came down to what goalie could make a bigger save. Marc-Andre Fleury or Ray Emery. Ray Emery did, Marc-Andre Fleury didn’t. That statement may seem like it is blaming Marc-Andre Fleury...
