Flyers vs Red Wings Saturday 7pm
     If your going to watch the Flyers play one team, its the Penguins.  Plenty in the game, games.  Lots of villains.  
     After going down 1-0, the Flyers got first period goals from Streit and Bellemare.  Bellemare tipped a great pass from Couturier for his 1st NHL goal.
    Pascal Dupuis tied the game up on a tip in in the second, setting up a great 3 rd period.  
   In the third the Flyers build a 4-2 lead with RJ Umberger's first goal of the season, and 2 minutes later Matt Read's first goal of the season on a great pass from Couturier.  After Marcel Goc made it interesting with a late goal, Sean Couturier spun a back hand shot near the blue line into the empty net for the win.
     Ray Emery was sharp and made several great saves.  
      Zac Rinaldo had 3 hits in the first period, including a a nice body hit on Sid Crosby.  He would later injure  his arm and not return after the first period.
Scott Laughton named CCM/AHL player of the week
