Craziest Game of My Life


(This ended up being a goal, by the way)

I've been to countless Flyers games in my time, but never have I witnessed one quite like this.

Sure, I was at Game 4 against the Bruins last year in the playoffs when Gagne scored his overtime winner to get the comeback started. I was even at the game when the Flyers clinched Eastern Conference Champions with the win over the Canadiens, but this was beyond that....

Here's the setup. We got to the game late because of the traffic. Consequently, we missed the first two goals by the Flyers. Little did we know that SEVEN more were to come between the two teams in just the first period. For those of you who don't watch hockey, the average goals scored per game is probably somewhere around 4 or 5. There was a total of 9 goals in just the first period. The lead ended up changing several times as one team would score after the other. Both teams ended up changing their goalies, something that is rarely seen.

The NHL record for most goals scored in a game by two teams is 21, set back in 1920! Scoring a goal back then wasn't as impressive as it is now. There was a combined 15 goals in the game last night. Some players don't even score 15 goals in their careers.

In the end, however, Stamkos ended up shitting all over us with his hat trick and two assists. Just like I said in my previous post, we needed to contain him and we didn't.

It sucks to lose a game when you score 7 goals....it sucks a lot.

  2. Holy high scoring. I can never decide if that makes games more exciting because there's always something happening, or less exciting because a single goal seems less special.
