After three consecutive losses to their three biggest rivals in a little over three days, the Flyers finally got a win. So you should totally… not get excited, because they are still in the midst of what is shaping up to be a horrifically disappointing season. 


But it’s OK to let ‘em in. Knock Knock is back, at the request of one captain, one Mr. Claude Giroux, who is finally showing some leadership (and why yes, Virginia, there is still some t-shirt inventory to move):

Let’s talk about a Brayden Schenn’s game-saving save: Before the opening faceoff, a super focused Schenn told Brian Engblom that this was a must-win game for the Flyers. And while that sort of clichéity is nothing new in pre-game rinkside interviews, Schenn backed it up in the third period with the Flyers holding a 3-2 lead when he somehow stopped a puck that had gotten by Bryz from crossing the goal line:

Afterwards, scriptuals asked Bryz about the assist:

Q: Tell me about the save that Brayden Schenn made for you in the third period.

Big save! Big save.

Q: How about yours on Cody Hodgson?

Big save! Big save. 


Big saves, indeed. 

Of course, Bryz was less excited about the Sabres' second goal. He seemingly yelled "dumb shit" as he slammed his stick over the crossbar. Might he have been referring to Kimmo Timonen's suspect handling of a 2-on-1? Probably.

I know I’m hard on Bryz for both his play and flakiness, but I still can’t help enjoying the disdain with which he answers reporters’ nonsensical questions. Check out his post-game presser, along with a very predictable song, after the jump.
