Ivan Provorov overtime winner in Seattle:

If you’re keeping track, the Flyers:

  1. lost eight games in a row
  2. fired Alain Vigneault
  3. a dog shit on the logo at the Wells Fargo Center
  4. they lost two more games to bring the losing streak to 10
  5. they snapped the skid with a 4-3 win in Vegas
  6. they ripped off two more wins against Arizona and New Jersey
  7. they lost 3-2 in Montreal
  8. they beat Ottawa in overtime
  9. the NHL paused the season due to COVID issues and the Flyers had seven guys in the protocol at one point this week
  10. they go out and beat Seattle on the road to push above .500

You buying in? Or do we want them to start losing again to force a blow up? They’re 13-12-5 with winnable games against San Jose and Los Angeles coming up, then they get two days off before playing Anaheim.

Also, Claude Giroux bagged his 600th career assist and 884th career point last night, which places him second all-time in franchise history, jumping Bill Barber in the process. Bob Clark has 1,210 points as a Flyer, but Giroux is ahead of everybody else to ever wear the uniform, which includes greats like Brian Propp, Rick MacLeish, and the entire Legion of Doom line. Gotta get G a Stanley Cup before his career is over, even if he has to go the Kimmo Timonen route.
