Gudas Leads Flyers Past Columbus

(Getty Images) Well that was fun! Wow, that might be the first time I’ve said that non-sarcastically this season.

Quick Recap: Flyers at Devils

Period 1: I knew this game was going to be interesting from the start, given that both teams need to win to remain in the playoff hunt. The game started as any Flyers’ game would by taking a quick penalty… thanks to Nick Schultz interfering with Stephen Gionta. The Flyers did a pretty good job […]
