Thanks to everybody for the congrats. I just got out of the sin bin here, but oddly I could stay logged in and like posts? Weird. It was a super fun final and I got hammered the night they won. Didn’t

Why aren’t they showing flyers highlights 

Took grand daughter to her first Ducks game, for her 5th birthday.   Pretty awesome until they dropped the puck. lol.   Ducks gave her an autographed picture of her favorite player, John Gibson.   We

3 minute review on play followed by zero explanation 

To be clear, I'm not saying the Flyers were robbed. If you're taking that long to review it say what you were looking at.

I'm wondering if they were looking to make sure Pitlick poke was after whistle (or dreaded attempt to.blow whistle)

real nice to see the Flyers still pressing and not just sitting on the lead. Great to play strong defense, but doesn't mean they have to curl up in their zone. 

and have to love when guys want to lay a big hit, so they go after 170 pound Farabee. Great job dude

a soft goal let up by Hart and a complete defensive breakdown. Let's not act like the Islanders are on fire here. Flyers doing a nice job making mediocre players look great with bad play there last 6 minutes of that period. 

interference hit on Couturie and picking on Farabee left the Flyers short handed with their forwards, wonder if that had a bigger effect then anyone mentioned

what the F is that. No one playing defense to clear the front of the net anymore now huh?

Maybe one day the Flyers can play hockey for 60 minutes

Interesting franchise trivia

@avappleyard: The goal tonight was @NHLFlyers Giroux's 25th in the play-offs.

He therefore passed Lindros and Brind'Amour (24) to go 11th in franchise history for post-season goals.

Next up? Rick Tocchet (27). #Flyers #NHL

Demko showing why Benning would be a fool to not let Markstrom walk and have someone else sign him to a $7 mil + mega deal.  though Benning loves foolish deals.  but he also makes great draft picks.  quite the crossroads.

what's the status of barzal and coots

I'm expecting bad news on Coots. If that was knee on knee...that's not a 48 hr injury. I know he played with a torn MCL a couple years ago, but preparing for worst.

Meanwhile....

@TheFourthPeriod: Early indications are Mat Barzal’s doing well; no issue with his eye.

@CapFriendly: TRADE:

To Montreal Canadiens:
G Jake Allen

@CF_DepthCharts: St. Louis is now down to four goalies under contract in their system.

Jordan Binnington

Also have two unsigned prospects.

that's a pretty wild trade. Allen has 1 year left on his deal at $4.35MM and the Canadiens are already paying Price $10.5MM/year.

Plus, didn't Allen outplay Binnington this year?

EDIT: guess this is mainly about finding money for Pietrangelo for St. Louis and lightening the load on Price but there had to be cheaper options for Montreal than this.

Habs have the cap room to do it, but it does seem like a move that would have made more sense to satisfy exposure in the Seattle draft

I think this trade is really dumb for Montreal. That's a lot of money for your G position. Is above average backup goaltending really worth anything? If Price goes down, it's not like Allen is taking you anywhere any other backup wouldn't unless your goal is to sneak into the playoffs or steal a series. Which, granted, is probably all Price is gonna give this team anyway, but still.... that makes it even more odd.

Trading for over-paid backup goalies is a fool's errand, IMO. 

Perhaps Montreal will be able to flip him for a profit or they want Pietro to stay in STL and not move out East? Or perhaps Jake Allen will be the savior they need.

Allen only has one year left on his deal and they only have Domi and a few cheap RFAs to sign.  I don't think Domi costs much and will probably sign a short term prove it deal if he's not traded anyway, which there is a pretty good chance he is.  regardless, they have lots of space.

it's not like this was some high risk move.
