Flyers fight past Islanders, 2-1 - Philly.com
Treasure Island: Flyers top Islanders to snap skid - CSNPhilly.com
For the first time this season I was able to sit down on the couch and watch an entire Flyers game from start to finish. I typically do not pay close attention to the hockey team until after the end of the football season, but things fell into place for me Wednesday so I decided to leave the TV on the Flyers game.
They had struggled on their recent west coast trip and their return to the east coast was not easy. But the team rallied from a first period deficit to pick up two points in the standings by beating the New York Islanders 2-1. It was a fun game to watch as the Flyers went up against former teammate, goalie Martin Biron. Biron had a good game, but Brian Boucher had a better one.
It was also fun watching a couple of good hockey fights.
