The Flyers are now 12-2-1 overall at the Consol Energy Center, home of the Pittsburgh Penguins, since its opening. Five different Flyers found the back of the net tonight, including Pierre-Edouard Bellemare with his first NHL goal, which is why I wrote half the title to this recap in French. Vive Pebbles!
This abomination of a game was just because the Flyers are saving their momentum for tomorrow night against a much more hated Pittsburgh Penguins team...right? Right? Somebody tell me that's what this was! Intentions aside, the Blackhawks roughed the Flyers up tonight to the tune of a 4-0 blowout. Patrick Kane had 2 power play goals and Mason gave up four goals for the third time this season.
The Phillies announced today that they have agreed to terms with Jerome Williams on a one-year, $2.5 million contract, which includes performance bonuses.
The 32-year-old right-hander was solid in his short time with the Phillies last season, compiling a 4-2 record and 2.83 ERA in nine starts after being claimed off waivers from the Texas Rangers in August.
For a team that returned almost the entire roster from the previous year, last year's Quakers team couldn't piece it together on the court. Plagued by inconsistency and turnovers, 2-3 was the best it got for Penn in the 2013-14 season. This was quickly followed by a 7 game losing streak that saw the Quakers go winless the entire month of December. Sixth year coach, Jerome Allen, will have to quickly integrate the incoming talent into the system to have a chance in the the Ivy League this year, with defending champion Harvard once again the favorite.
The defending Atlantic 10 Tournament champions will be a team in transition for the 2014-2015 season. After graduating the bulk of their lineup from a strong 2013-2014 squad, the Hawks will look to a youthful roster to step up as the season progresses.
We are just under a month away from the start of the 2014-2015 Men's Basketball season, with the first slate of games to commence on Friday November 14th. As with every college basketball season, some familiar faces are gone but some will return, and there will be some new faces that will become a big part of the school's future. The final City 6 power rankings from last season went as such:
2) Saint Joseph's
4) La Salle
Obviously, these rankings will shake up quite a bit this season, especially with teams like Saint Joseph's losing quite a bit of production from last season.
Keeping with the narrative developed over this three-game home stand, the Flyers capped off the stretch of games with a loss 4-3 to the Anaheim Ducks tonight after taking them to a shootout. The Flyers now sit at 0-2-2, the same amount of points they had in the first 4 games last year. (1-3-0)
Everything went right for the Eagles last night; Shady was picking up large gains on the ground, Foles found his receivers early and often, the offensive line pushed the Giants' pass rushers around, and the defense didn't allow a single point. It was the complete opposite for the G-Men, as Eli was sacked six times on the night and they had no answer for the Eagles' aerial attack.
Every team in football has it's rivalry matchups, but it seems like the rivalry games that the Eagles have are just a thousand times better than those other, less important teams. Those four Cowboys and Giants games a year are always great, especially when the Birds fly off with a win. Yeah, the Redskins are a rival too, but they're never as worthy an opponent as the Cowboys and Giants. It's always personal and always filled with trash talk.
