At Least They Salvaged a Point

Wednesday, February 20, 2008 ·

The Flyers lost for the eighth straight time last night, this time via the shoot-out. The Flyers battled back from a two goal deficit to tie the game early in the third period. The Flyers saw goals from Kimmo Timonen [SH] on a pretty pass from RJ Umberger and Scottie Upshall when he deflected a Jim Dowd shot.

The officials in the game were absolutely atrocious. Lasse Kukkonen was cut on two different occasions from a high-stick, Jeff Carter was hooked on a break-away, and in over-time a Flyer player tripped a Senator and there was no call. I am actually at the point where I don't want to watch the games because of the officiating. The referees make between 100,000 and 200,000 a year. It is starting to look like they are too slow for the game.

Claude Giroux looked like he could become a special player after a somewhat shaky first period. Stevens awarded him with the first attempt in the shoot-out. Daniel Briere is continuing his woes as he completely whiffed on his shoot-out attempt. Timonen scored a shootout goal for the Flyers. Jason Spezza's shoot-out goal won it for the Senators.

At least they got a point. They're back in action tomorrow against the San Jose Sharks.


A small introduction...

We Hate to Lose began in October 2007. The initial purpose of the website was to provide news updates and commentary on all four major sports teams in Philadelphia. Because of time-constraints, in April of 2009, I decided to post only on my first-love, the Philadelphia Phillies.

My name is Justin Evans and I hope you enjoy the site.
