Matt Read should be suspended for his hit on Carcillo, but he won’t be

Amidst all the god awful officiating in last night’s 4-1 Rangers victory against the Flyers, was this clear head shot by Matt Read on Daniel Carcillo that went uncalled. “As the video shows”, Read stuck his frickin’ elbow out intentionally to pop Carcillo in the dome. It’s a hit worthy of at least a game as the video is pretty damning. Read did it on purpose. He targeted...

Three Pointer – Flyers are Living Dangerously vs. Rangers

The Flyers finally got a win in Madison Square Garden on Sunday and considering how they’ve performed there over the past three years, this probably qualifies as an Easter miracle.  Rookie winger Jason Akeson redeemed himself with a power play goal to tie the game midway through the second period and LUKE SCHENN (yes, that Luke Schenn) put […] The post Three Pointer – Flyers...

On Friday most people wanted Steve Mason in goal in game 2 and Jason Akeson out of the lineup. Neither of those things happened as Mason has still not recovered from his injury, and coach Craig Berube left Akeson in the lineup even though he took a 4 minute penalty in Game 1. During the game on Sunday, Akeson and Mason’s replacement Ray Emery played a huge part in the Flyers 4...
