Yea, its hard to imagine Berube long term as the coach, but he is a loyal soldier and doing a pretty good job for someone in a new job, for the first time.  Great job, Craig!
Next game: 
   Matt Read's net crashing 6th goal gave the Flyers a 1-0 lead against the Rangers.  He would also add 3 hits and a blocked shot.
       Michael Del Zotto  scored his 4th GWG of the season, this time short-handed, 1:19 into the third period and the Flyers held off the Rangers in the last game before the trading deadline (Monday 3pm EST).
      Matt Read scored half-way thru the first to give the Flyers a 1-0 lead, then after two Rangers goals, Michael Raffl scored with 5 and minutes to go in the second to send the game tied at 2 into the third.
     At the end of the third period Claude Giroux picked up a high sticking penalty.  The Rangers had started the 3rd with 1:57 of power play time, Del Zotto would score with 26 seconds left on the man advantage.  Wayne Simmonds added an empty net goal with less than a second to go.
      Steve Mason played awesome, and was especially present during a flurry of activity late in the third that saw the Rangers get 3-4 chances during the same play.
      Nicklas Grossman left the game after taking a puck to the back of the head when he layed out to block a shot.  Vinny Lecavalier suited up after several scratches and looked very effective.
