Patrik Elias nets the game-winning goal in the third round of an overtime shootout, pushing the New Jersey Devils past the Flyers for a 4-3 victory on Thursday night.
Zac Rinaldo scored his first NHL goal, Claude Giroux punched home his eighth of the season, and Max Talbot gave the Flyers the lead in the third period on a penalty shot -- but it was not enough. Devils' ruffian David Clarkson found twine with 6:35 remaining to knot the game at three, setting the stage for the shootout that would credit goalie Sergie Bobrovsky with his first loss of the season.
The Flyers are now 1-0-1 on the season series with New Jersey. More to come...
LeBron James to the Sixers. It would take a miracle, right?
Sure, but one MVP is in on the push for the four-time MVP landing in Philly.
Enter Mike Trout.
The Angels' star outfielder, a two-time AL MVP and native of Millville, New Jersey, took to Twitter on Thursday to make a quick pitch for the King. Trout, a well-known fan of Philadelphia sports teams, responded to a 94WIP tweet about reporter Howard Eskin shooting down the LeBron James chatter.
First, it was Ben Simmons tweeting James. That's really how all the buzz started and now the idea is taking on a mind of its own. Clearly, it's being talked about. And what Sixers fan wouldn't want a player like James putting "The Process" into hyperdrive?
And hey, once James comes to Philly, he can then return the favor: bringing Trout to the Phillies.
We can dream, right?
