Lavs joined Mike Missanelli yesterday, and before ever getting to the hockey discussion, he called out Mikey Miss for talking nothing but Eagles for the last four months.
Before we even get into that, right, what's goin' on there? I don't know if I should admit this or not, I actually listen to your show. Right? And the Flyers have been alright, we've been doing ok for the past, oh say, four months. Right? And not even a crack on that show, ever.
What do we got to do to move our needle?
Keep winning, big fella, keep winning.
By the way, I couldn't agree more with Lavs. The vast majority of the population is happy to move on and talk about hockey and baseball- but that's another post.
The conversation quickly turned to the goalies and specifically, Bob. Lavs detailed why Bob got 11 straight starts back in November. In Soviet Russia, win guarantee you!
He literally said during that run… he got beat one game and he went in and told Jeff Reese he wasn't going to lose for a month. That's the way he worded it, I won't lose for one month. So we kept playing him and he kept winning, so we just left him in there.
He was able to get it out in English, either that or Reeser took some Russian classes. Anyway, it got back to me, so we just kept playing him.
Amazing- this kind of confidence from a rookie.
A quick check of the stats shows that after Bob lost to Anaheim on October 21st, he didn't lose in again in regulation until November 16th. He started every game from October 26th-November 18th.
The best part? It sounds like he said it in English. So, by my count, he knows two phrases in our fine language:
I won't lose for one month
May 15th would be a good time to drop that second line again.
