Flyers Lose for First Time in a While, Pronger Fails to Steal Puck

Flyers_highlights

The Flyers' 10 game unbeaten streak was snapped last night, as they ran into the hot goaltending of Carey Price, who stopped 41 shots.

BOB finally came back down to earth, allowing three goals (including a couple of softies) for the first time since an overtime loss to Washington.  It was his 11th start in a row and second start in consecutive days. It may be time to rest him, yo.

So, remember last season's Stanley Cup finals when Chris Pronger tried to keep the game puck away from the Chicago Blackhawks after a few games, angering the opposition. There was the Flyers star blueliner Tuesday night trying to keep the game puck away from the Canadiens, who wanted it for goalie Carey Price and his shutout. Habs center Scott Gomez and captain Brian Gionta chased down Pronger and got it from him.

Price? He then flipped the puck to a kid in the stands.

"I was wondering what was going on," Price shrugged afterward. "I should tell those guys [Gomez and Gionta] that I don't really care about the puck."

Pronger's response?  "I was going to give it to a precious kid in the stands."  Video after the jump.

    I love this site and read it every day. But enough with the “yo’s” at the end of sentences. I don’t know anyone from Philadelphia who talks like that.
