Thoughts after period 2 of Flyers-Bruins game 4

May 6th, 2011 by Scott Dargis | Filed under Baseball, Flyers, Hockey, Phillies.

– I forgot that VS. was going to put the game on after the Red-Wings-San Jose game, because the coverage on Hockey Night in Canada has been fantastic. The color from Garry Galley and play-by-play of Dean Brown has made the game seem so epic.

– Bobrovsky looked fantastic that period. He is the main reason why the score is tied.

-Great job by Versteeg, he has played awful this series, but finally showed why the Flyers traded for him. He can make plays, finally made a good decision to wait shooting on Tim Thomas. Nice pass by Richards to set it up.

-Hartnell has had a rough game, but made a good decision on drawing that 4 on 4. The Flyers skate much better in the open ice.

-It would be a perfect time for JVR to step up. He has played fantastic this series and this would be the perfect time to step up when the captain is starting to play like one, he made a great pass to set up Versteeg.

-Tough loss for Cliff Lee. Hard to believe but he got out dueled by Derek Lowe.  16 k’s is hard to beat, but the offense worries me.

-Jamie Garcia is perfect through 7.1 innings. He has already gotten through Braun and Fielder, but as I type this he just walked Casey MceGhee and then gave up a hit to Yuniesky Betancourt. A perfect game attempt turned into a game that will never go in the record books, and thus becomes another regular season game.

-Sven the Wise is showing some power tonight. 5 hits 3 HRs and 6 RBIs, all power so far. Nice to see Jay Bruce finally step up. James Shields has been a solid pick up  7.1 inn 5 Ks 1ER. Virtually no w.h.i.p. Keep him if you have him.

– And finally get to hear Jim Jackson and Clement, awesome.
