Not For Nothing, But Danny Briere and Ilya Bryzgalov Really Dig the Maple Leafs

Not For Nothing, But Danny Briere and Ilya Bryzgalov Really Dig the Maple Leafs

Not trying to jinx anything, but the Flyers have a few solid trends on their side this evening in Toronto.

Starting with Danny Briere, the Maple Leafs are one of five teams Briere has averaged better than a point per game against in his career.

Kings: 22 G, 25 Pts, 1.14 PPG
Flyers (go figure): 16 G, 18 Pts, 1.13 PPG
Jets/Thrashers: 30 G, 33 Pts, 1.1 PPG
Maple Leafs: 40 G, 43 Pts, 1.08 PPG
Blue Jackets: 13 G, 13 Pts, 1 PPG

Against no team has Briere scored more points in his career.

Then there's Iyla Bryzgalov. In six games against the Maple Leafs (four starts), Bryz is 5-0 with a 1.21 GAA and a .956 save percentage. Against no team does Bryzgalov have a lower GAA nor a higher save percentage.

The Flyers won their last meeting with the Leafs 7-1, and as CSNPhilly's Tim Riday points out, won all four meetings last season by a combined 16-6 margin. Actually, the Flyers haven't lost to Toronto since March 3, 2011 and haven't lost in Toronto since Jan. 14, 2010. They're 7-1 over the last two seasons against the Leafs. For reference, here's the Canadian Press' lead from the last time these two teams met:

TORONTO — At last there is nothing left to say.

With their exasperated fans chanting "Let's Go Blue Jays!" and their home losing streak having plunged to a new low, the Toronto Maple Leafs were completely out of answers.

This picture from that same evening also warmed our hearts.

But that's all in the past, as is the draft-day trade that swapped James van Riemsdyk for Luke Schenn. Tonight will be L. Schenn's first trip back to Air Canada Centre and Reemer's first game against his old mates.

Finally, despite all the good news above, the Flyers haven't been so good on the road so far this season. They're just 1-5 away from Wells Fargo Center and tonight kicks off a season-long, six-game road trip that will Peter Laviolette's team to Winnipeg, New Jersey, Montreal, Long Island and Pittsburgh.

Puck drop is set for 7 p.m., can be seen on CSN and heard on WMMR.

How do you feel? Reemer has "mixed emotions." Maybe give this guy a call and pick his brain, Evan?

Sixers to play on new court design, wear special City Edition jerseys with old school bell

The Sixers announced on Wednesday morning that they'll be unveiling their fourth edition jersey in the near future to be worn on seven tribute nights with a "Spirit of 76" theme to them.

It will include a bell logo on both the jerseys and at center court of the Wells Fargo Center.

"'Spirit of 76,' introduces a new 'bell' logo, inspired by imagery from Philadelphia's 1976 bicentennial celebration, a special center-court logo signed by 76ers full season ticket members, collectible tickets and membership boxes for season ticket members," the team said in a statement.

The team will also unveil three new sculptures at their Camden training facility to go along with the campaign.

“We are excited to announce the ‘Spirit of 76’ campaign as it provides another incredible opportunity to celebrate the proud tradition of the 76ers with the city of Philadelphia, our fans, players and alumni,” said Philadelphia 76ers Chief Sales and Marketing Officer Chris Heck. “The ‘Spirit of 76’ campaign honors the legendary icons who paved the way for this organization, while recognizing the passion and intensity of our fans.”

The City Edition jerseys will join the Association Edition (home), Icon Edition (road), and Statement Edition jerseys this season.

Below is a list of games for the "Spirit of 76" campaign where the special jerseys and court will be featured.
