Next game: 
     Matt Read got his second goal of the season in Montreal Saturday night.
Flyers vs Wild tonight!  7pm
     Craig Berube and Ron Hextall are, and should be, on the warpath after the Flyers effort last night in Madison Square Garden.  Hextall laid into the team after the game, and during the game Coach Berube on a national television interview discussed his teams lack of effort.
    This is critical stuff, especially for a team that needs to outwork other teams to win games.  The Flyers do not match up against the top teams with pure talent.
     Somebody who did play well, earning the third star of the game was Steve Mason.  His goaltending was the difference in maybe losing 6 or 7 to nothing.
     Claude Giroux did play after all, entering MSG with a walking boot on.  Scott Laughton was called up from the Phantoms and saw his first Flyers action of the season.  He leads the team in goals with six, and is second in points with 11 (Nick Cousins has 12).  Michael Del Zoto played his  first game back in MSG since being traded from the Rangers last year.  He left into the third period with a lower body injury.
