First and foremost, I hope we now have beef with the Oilers because Connor McDavid sure was trying to start some shit. For some reason, McDavid blames Brandon Manning for his broken collarbone when it was just an unfortunate accident. But right from the get go McDavid was coming after Manning and TBH it was working out well for the Flyers. Manning was getting in McDavid's head and making him make mistakes but McDavid got the early lead in the battle when he notched a power play goal right in Manning's grill. The goal would've been enough to rattle B-Man but McDavid decided to turn right around and call Manning a "fucking bitch/pussy" or something of that nature. I was PRAYING for them to drop the gloves but alas the game continued into a barn burner after the Flyers fell behind 2-0.
The Fly Guys proceeded to score 3 straight goals in one minute and twelve seconds and turned the game on its head. The final period was full of high energy and bodies flying around and just fun hockey to watch. Radko Gudas got involved on the offense when he made a nice Ghost-like move to keep the puck in at the blue line and then took the puck to the net resulting in a centering pass to Giroux who put home his second of the game. Then the saucemesiter himself, Michael Raffl, made a power move similar to the one he made the other day to score and take the lead late in the 3rd. The Flyers are ROLLING and have risen to 3rd in the Metropolitan Division. Seven wins a row. Man. Is that good?
P.S. Connor McDavid is REALLY good at hockey
