The Flyers won a tough game against the Boston Bruins Thursday night, with Marty Biron earning his first win as the team’s starting goalie. In a fitting end to a gritty contest, Scottie Upshall scored his third goal in his seven games as a Flyer after a huge save by Biron with 9 seconds left in overtime. After the save, Sami Kapanen sent a brilliant outlet pass to Scottie Upside, who put a sick move on Bruins goalie Tim Thomas, going all Bobby Orr on a deke that caused Thomas to break his stick in frustration afterward. The announcers kept calling it the "Forsberg move," but the only similarity I saw was the that it was a short left-far right backhand deke, which isn't that uncommon. It was the acrobatics that made the goal... Let the kid have his moment. I'm tellin ya now, Upshall is gonna be a force. Tough to beat that for an exciting road win, and it’s a nice start to Biron’s tenure in orange and black. Both he and Upshall were great tonight.
Kings starter and otherwise really good goalie Jonathan Quick is out up to three months with a groin injury, while backup Jeff Zatkoff is currently on injured reserve with a groin injury too.
Before eventually brining in former Predators and Coyotes goaltender Anders Lindbach, Los Angeles called around the league to see if any teams might be able to help them find a replacement for Quick. Mason was one of the potential candidates, Friedman said, but Mason's $4.1 million cap hit couldn't fit into their cap situation. Plus, the Flyers don't have any cap flexibility, either.
Mason is 4-2 with a 2.77 goals-against average and .901 save percentage in six games this season.
Get this guy season tickets! (Just kidding, we don't endorse this kind of behavior and almost don't find it funny at all)
A man who if you were kind of drunk could almost look like Larry Bird's second cousin was ejected from the Wells Fargo Center on Wednesday night for showing a bit of negative emotion directed at Oklahoma City Thunder star Russell Westbrook.

The fan was later removed from his seat and probably told to act like a decent human.
