Flyers Clinch!

Saturday, April 5, 2008 ·

How fittingly...A Flyers win over a Devils team they haven't beat in their last six opportunities and a Florida win in Carolina, a place they have never won, would clinch a playoff spot for the Flyers. Well, it happened. The Flyers played their best game all season as they chased Martin Brodeur out in the third period and shut out the New Jersey Devils 3-0 to do their part. Florida beat Carolina 4-3 behind amazing goaltending performance from Tomas Vokun and Craig Anderson.

Back to the Flyers, it was an amazing defensive effort as everyone did their part. The Flyers handled the puck well and created more turnovers than they gave up. If there was any defensive lapse, Biron was there to bail them out. It was definitely a complete effort from start to finish and like I said, it was the best game I saw all year.

Flyers Goals:
1st Period - 5:44 R.J Umberger (Prospal, Hartnell)
3rd Period - 11:16 Scottie Upsall (Carter, Jones)
3rd Period - 11:53 Joffrey Lupul (Richards)


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.
