They're back in it and in convincing fashion. But do not get TOO comfy down 2-1. This victory has all the potential in the world to become a series changer. Taking game 3 with a 6-3 victory and losing game 4 would be like completing a pass on 4th and 26, and then losing the following week. Build on it. I know that Harry Kalas has very little to do with the Flyers and more with Philadelphia sports in general, but certain Pens fans (you know who you are) brought him up and made a mockery of his death. I won't even quote nor link what was said. Not sure, but you may have just invoked the Kalas curse... that is, if the Phillies fans let us borrow him for just a bit. Highlights and pics await you.
A game for the ages... unless you're from Western Pa.
Giroux, in only his 3rd playoff game, came THIS close to getting a Gordie Howe hattrick. He was assessed a two minute roughing penalty instead of a 5 min major. Kennedy, known by Pierre McG as "one tough hombre", hit the ice... hard.
And this is my absolute favorite. Crosby got a serious face wash from D'Powe and then some lip service. If you look a bit up and to the left, you see one of the Flyers faithful flipping Crosby the bird. What little respect I had for Sid dissipated with his swipe at Kimmo's jaw after the whistle in Game 2.
Three games into his NFL career, Carson Wentz might need a bigger trophy case.
The 23-year-old, who picked up his first NFC Offensive Player of the Week award for his performance against Pittsburgh, has been named the NFL's Offensive Rookie of the Month for September.
Yes, Wentz's first NFL month was a special one.
The No. 2 pick from North Dakota State has completed 64.7 percent of his passes for 769 yards, five touchdowns and zero interceptions. He's the first rookie in NFL history to put up those numbers in the first three games of a career. And his 102 straight passing attempts without an interception is also a rookie record.
It's hard to believe that a little over a week before the season began, Wentz was scheduled to be the Eagles' third-string quarterback and have a redshirt year. That all changed when de facto GM Howie Roseman traded away starter Sam Bradford and the team decided to start the rookie.
While many thought the decision to start Wentz was the beginning of a long rebuilding year, the rookie has the Eagles off to a fast 3-0 start. Wentz has played very well, but has also been aided by a stout defense, led by NFC Defensive Player of the Month Fletcher Cox.
This week, Wentz is spending some time hunting while the Eagles are on their bye week. He bagged another trophy on Thursday.
The team will be back in action on Oct. 9 in Detroit to face the Lions.

Joel Embiid really trusts the process.
And he'll tell you as much over and over.
In fact, JoJo said it so much yesterdady that he was cracking himself up about just how much he trusts the process.
By most accounts, Joel was a bit rusty in the first couple of practices to kick off training camp, but, you know, you've just got to trust the process.
And he does. Trust the process.
