Morning Puck: Who Loves Some Cooter?!

Kyle Scott - January 18, 2012

Flyers rookies really are all the rage. 

Last night, Sean Couturier scored a goal in his fifth straight game, equally a feat achieved by Matt Read back in November. It is the first time in Flyers history that two rookies have had five-game goal scoring streaks in the same season, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. 

The 19-year-old Cooter – whose age I couldn’t check on Wikipedia because the site is rightfully protesting SOPA today (if you haven’t heard about it yet, you will) -  has been an incredible surprise thus far, and appears to be wise beyond his years– 10 G, 7 A, 17 PTS, +13 in 40 games. Unfortunately, last night’s shorthanded goal wasn’t of his typical Clock Tower Sniper variety – a nickname coined by reader Mr. Nickles for Cooter’s patience in often waiting to shoot until the time is just right – but it was beautiful nonetheless:

So, really, all this Cooter talk leads to a necessary question asked by reader Dave: Who buys him his beer?

Cooter was drinking wine with Brayden Schenn and Scott Hartnell in an episode of 24/7, so one of those two guys might be the obvious answer(s), but I’m going with fellow rookie Harry Scrabble. Or Papa Briere.

There’s love for Cooter, your Clock Tower Sniper.

Meanwhile, in the $51 million net, Ilya Bryzgalov played well, giving up only one goal in the Flyers 5-1 win. After the game, when asked about the word that makes sports writers all wet, confidence, Bryz offered this via the Flyers post-game transcript:

Q: Is this a boost to your confidence? Only allowing one goal? 

“I don't want to talk about this.”

 

Whatever it takes.

Flyers Finally Beat the Lightning, Lavs is a Genius

Kyle Scott - February 16, 2011

Richards_zone

Stevie Why has a good post this morning about Lavs' plan to beat the Lightning's trap. The Lightning sit all five players in the neutral zone in an awkward and uncomfortable display of dental damn on ice- nothing gets through. They capitalize on the mistakes of eager opponents before transitioning to an odd-man rush. Lavs' plan, which was met with some boos in Tampa, was to hold the Flyers back and essentially wait for the Lightning to make the first move. At that point, it was up to the Flyers to not turn the puck over. It's boring as hell to watch, but it worked.

Another thing Lavs did, a play that almost worked on Sunday, was send a forward in motion along the far side of the ice. When the Flyers were trailing the Kings in the final seconds of Sunday's game, Lavs pulled the goalie and set Carts in motion during a blue line faceoff. The Flyers won the draw back to the defense and hit a streaking Carter, who had a full head of steam into the offensive zone. The play resulted in two scoring chances in about seven seconds… all from a faceoff that started outside of the Kings' zone.

Last night, they employed a similar technique, which was evident on the first play after the Flyers took a 1-0 lead. Mike Richards won the faceoff back to the defense, then slowly skate towards Brian Boucher. The Flyers passed the puck toward the near boards while Richards looped in the defensive zone. Matt Carle skated along the boards, then threw a no look pass backwards to a streaking Richards, who wound up slicing through the Lightning's zone and ended up behind their net.

Besides the power play, it is almost impossible to draw up a "set play" in hockey- there are just too many moving parts. Lavs does it on a nightly basis. Genius.

Hop it for full highlights and the video of Richards' play. Or read Stevie Why's full recap. The choice is normally yours- today, you do both.

Flyers Drop Another in Shootout

Kyle Scott - November 27, 2010

Bouche

The echoes could be heard everywhere – it sounded to the untrained, unknowing ear like boos each time Flyers goaltender Brian Boucher or Devils goaltender Johan Hedberg made a save.

But to anyone who knows the nicknames “Boosh” and “Moose,” it was obvious the Flyers and Devils fans in attendance at Prudential Center were just voicing their approval. It happened a lot, as the backup goaltenders dueled it out all afternoon, with Hedberg and the Devils emerging with a 2-1 shootout win over the Flyers in Newark, N.J.

Read the rest from Steve Whyno at Philly Sports Daily or watch the full, extended highlights after the jump.  The choice, as always, is yours.
