Flyers with a Powerful Win

Sunday, March 9, 2008 ·

The Flyers scored 4 power-play goals to defeat the New York Islanders 4-1. The teams skated through the first period goal-less, but the Flyers scored early in the second when Danny Briere found a bouncing puck and put it in the wide open net. Roughly 10 minutes later, Scottie Upshall and Jeff Carter took advantage of a Rick DiPietro turnover to put the Flyers up 2-0. Jeff Carter now leads the team with 26 goals on the year and has 6 in his last four games. Scott Hartnell scored two power-play goals in the third period to complete the Flyers scoring. Marty Biron made 32 saves in the win.

The Flyers are now 5-2-1 in their last 8 games since their 10 game losing streak. Derian Hatcher returned tonight and Joffrey Lupul may be able to return for the Flyers home and home series with the Maple Leafs this week. Mike Richards remains on his three week time table, which may allow him to return next week.


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.
