Manny Malhotra's OT Winner Beats Flyers

In a game filled with little to keep fans interested, Manny Malhotra's overtime winner proved to be the difference in a 2-1 Carolina Hurricanes overtime win on Tuesday night.

Malhotra pounced on a Mark Streit turnover and danced in while fighting off a backchecking Sean Couturier, lifting a backhander past starter Steve Mason for the game winner.

"It can't happen," head coach Craig Berube said of the goal.

Philadelphia Flyers Not a Playoff Team

Now 5-9-0 in games against the current playoff set, acrimoniously booed off the Wells Fargo Center ice after a sadsack performance against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Thursday, the Philadelphia Flyers find themselves at a crux. Are they a playoff team?

Is this team, that needs to be bailed out by magical timeouts on a daily basis, that can only play 20 minutes on any given night, that cannot get the big save when they need it, a playoff team?

Flames' age not cause of road woes

I get the impression people want the old fogies of the team sold and replaced by young up-and-comers. They believe doing this will improve the Flames' 8-14-4 road record.

I would agree, if Calgary had a lot of old fogies.

The Flames have the eighth oldest team in the league with an average age of just over 28. Safe to say that unlike the Oilers and Avalanche, they can grow facial hair. But unlike Detroit, they need mouthguards and can’t just take out their dentures before games.
