The Flyguys lose another one. Another rough start for this team with a long season ahead. The Flyers had 12 penalties, twice as many as the Avs and gave up three goals on power plays.
The Avalanche outshot the Flyers 17-3 in the first period and got goals from Brett Clark and Marek Svatos against Marty Biron to take a 2-0 lead.
The Flyers scored twice in the second period but both times the Avalanche quickly responded with goals and took a 4-2 lead into the final frame.
Well, after an amazing night in the 215 last night, the local sports scene takes a breather, as the Flyers are the only local team in action at Colorado. We can shift some focus to scouting our Phillies potential World Series opponent (it feels so great to write that) as Game 5 of the ALCS is tonight in Boston.
The magical Rays try to move into the World Series tonight as they face Dice-K Matsuzaka and the Boston Red Sox in Fenway Park at 8pm. The Red Sox find themselves in the similar position, down 3-1 in an ALCS, and the last two times they’ve completed the comeback en route to both of their World Series wins this decade.
Scott Kazmir takes the mound for the Rays.
In terms of effects on your Phightins, a Boston Red Sox comeback to a 7th game would be a dream scenario, letting these two teams beat each other up over seven games is really all any 215 fan should root for. Look for AL Cy-Young candidate Matsuzaka to pitch well and live up to the moment tonight and force the series back to Tampa Bay for Game 6.
Final: Boston 4 Tampa 0
The 19-year-old son of former Colorado Avalanche goaltender Patrick Roy, was involved in a brawl on Saturday night in a Quebec Major Junior Hockey league game. This video is everywhere and is pretty sweet so I’d thought I’d let everyone else enjoy. Notice the form on those haymakers. Also pay close attention to the middle finger after. What a class act.
Jonathan Roy was given two fighting majors, a minor and two game misconducts. Nadeau wasn’t penalized. The Sagueneens went on to win 10-1 (Roy must be a real good goalie).
