Sports Talk with Brodes: Flyers Shutout a Rival, Sidney Crosby & the Penguins
The Philadelphia Flyers head into the all-star break with another big win under their belt. They defeat the Pittsburgh Penguins by a score of 3-0 and Brian Elliott records a 19-save shutout. They have now taken down four of the best teams in the NHL over a 14-day stretch. The penalty kill was absolutely outstanding and Kevin Hayes made the entire building erupt as he milked clock with beautiful moves. Jakub Voracek opened the scoring with a great goal, but the best part about it was Sean Couturier's laser pass through a ridiculous window. Joel Farabee also recorded an assist on the goal. For the second goal, my favorite line the Flyers have right now hopped on the score sheet. James Van Riemsdyk drove the net and Travis Konecny delivered a pass to him backdoor. Claude Giroux, centering the line, received an assists as well. This line put together by Alain Vigneault has been awesome. Sidney Crosby heard BOOs everytime he touched the puck. The audacity by Flyers fans... he is my favorite player in the world. It's a violation, I know. The Flyers head into the break with a 27-17-6 record.
