While the Flyers find themselves in the midst of a three-game winning streak, the Flyers of Tomorrow continue to hold their own. While it's been a bit of a slow week for the Flyers' prospects, there are still some interesting takeaways.
It was the end of an era yesterday as longtime Devils goalie Martin Brodeur officially announced his retirement. Brodeur spent 21 seasons in New Jersey. He won three Stanley Cups, four Vezina trophies, and five Jennings trophies. He is the all time NHL leader in wins and shutouts. He will assume a role as a special assistant to Blues general manager Doug Armstrong.
As the final horn sounded on Thursday night, the scoreboard showed a 5-2 Flyers victory over the Winnipeg Jets. It marked one of the Flyers more impressive games of the season.
In December, the Flyers showed character with a win over the Jets by rallying for two goals in the third and scoring the game-winning goal 10 seconds into overtime. This time, the Flyers controlled the game against a team that had won five of their last six games.
