The Flyers are playing one of their most familiar rivals two days after they last faced them. Not sure there's a whole lot to add to the narrative in terms of a meaningful preview, but the good news is the home team will be a little healthier than they were on Sunday, when they got smoked. Kimmo and Voracek are back, though Meszaros and Kubina are still out.
Ilya Bryzgalov looks to add to his impressive shutout streak, having gone cold turkey on goal allowance for two straight games before getting a night off in Jersey. Previously overshadowed by stout defense and great goaltending, an offensive slump currently has the league's best attack looking lost in the offensive zone.
We've seen the Flyers score at an exceptional clip this season, so there's no reason to worry. The scoring will return. The good news is, the goalie stole them a few when they were down. Now how about everyone does their respective thing at the same time….
You have to give Marcus Vick credit, he still has that breakaway speed. But it's not exactly "getaway" speed as he demonstrated in his failed attempt to elude police in an incident that took place back in April.
The incident occurred at Onelife Fitness when a police officer tried to arrest him on an outstanding contempt of court charge in Montgomery County, Va., and Vick ran, according to the police report obtained by WAVY.com, damaging a door as he did so. As the officer tried to grab him, Vick pushed him and, after a brief chase on foot, he was taken into custody. Online arrest records originally indicated that he was charged with a hate crime, but Newport News Police spokesman Lou Thurston told WAVY that was an error.
Vick, 32, was charged with one count each of resisting arrest, obstruction of justice, destruction of property and felony assault on a law enforcement officer.
The video ends with Vick on the ground and the police officer whose camera caught the whole chase with his weapon drawn and pointed at Vick. Scary and strange stuff for the brother of former Eagles quarterback Mike Vick.
