Jeff Carter, So Hot Right Now, Jeff Carter...

Sunday, December 7, 2008 ·

The supermen came to the rescue again last night. Like they have in many games already this season, the dynamic young duo of Jeff Carter and Mike Richards netted goals again to help give the Flyers a 2-1 over-time victory over the Carolina Hurricanes.

Mike Richards scored his 4th short-handed goal of the season, tying him with teammate Simon Gagne, for the league lead. The opportunity came after Simon Gagne made a great along the boards and got it Richards, so he could deke out Michael Leighton for the goal.

After the Hurricanes tied it up quickly in the third period, both teams traded scoring chances, but to no avail. It was now time for part two of the dyanmic duo to do his magic and that is exactly what Jeff Carter did in the overtime period. He won the face-off and shot it from the circle to net the game-winner. It seems like anything he touches turns to gold right now. He's only on pace for a 60 goal season. Only, right? With Gagne, Richards, and Carter, the Flyers could possibly have 3 players with over 80 points.

Highlights after the jump. Sorry, you have to listen to the horrible Carolina announcers.

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.
