Jeff Carter... SCORES! Right off the face off - Enrico, The 700 Level
Certainly nice to see Jeff Carter with the scoring touch. Hopefuly that continues for the rest of the season.
With Ken Hitchcock back in town I had a feeling there would be some entertainment down at the Wachovia Center last night. Hitchcock is never afraid to answer questions to the media and is known to speak honestly about a number of topics. I found it interesting to learn that the former Flyers head coach voiced his support for Flyers captain Mike Richards, who has recently reignited his battle with the local media.
I have made clear my opinion on Richards. I do not think he is mentally ready to be the captain of a hockey team. Maybe pressure is getting to him, maybe he is just too young. The fact that Sidney Crosby has already lead his team to two consecutive Stanley Cup Finals appearances and won one makes it a little more frustrating to watch Richards go through what he is going through right now.
