In Response to Savard
[QUOTE]Looking extremely good on the PP. Probably his best game yet.

His best period anyway.He's playing great tonight.I hope it continues.The whole team played pretty well although they had to rely on Thomas to keep them in it the first 10 minutes.Good period but they will need to be hitting more.

Very smart play in giving up the puck right away when he saw that another Flyer penalty was called. I would say that was easily his best period this year, particularly on the power play. Really good puck movement. Let's hope it's a sign of things to come.

Sets Horton up perfectly on a 2 on 1 than Nathan passes it back ugh...

Not for nothing, but Savard, Ryder and Horton are skating well as a line...they look pretty good together.

Yes. Very good. But still not much finish... Horton really struggling to bury the puck.

Me thinks once Horton pots one he will reverse his snake bitten curse.

Even though Horton didn't score tonight...I thought he played a great game, he was all over the ice and showed allot of hustle. I was pulling for him to get one. Savvy played his best game so far...and is starting to look more comfy out there...as his passing is getting crisper and he is making better decisions with the puck....and that is great to see!

Agree SanDog. And agree Beezfan. Although we could be waiting a while for that next goal at this rate.

I sure hope not... but his effort was obviously there...so we can't fault him too much for not scoring.

Last night was the best i have seen him play since he was concussed.

Agree with all that is being said, I thought Savard and Horton both had great games and very soon the points between them will start to come rapidly. Only hope that when Lucic comes back the line does not go backwards. I am a big Lucic fan but I dont thik his skating/speed is good enough to keep up with the other two.
Keep Ryder in there.

That line was very good last night. I thought horton was a force. He was all over the ice. He passesd up a number of shots which is very unlike him. He is definitely battling a confidence thing.
Earlier this month, Julien talked about having to support Horton in terms of confidence. He isnt a player that responds to the yelling and such. He is definitely a fragile guy mentally but has all the physical attributes to be a force when he skates like that.

Looks like some chemistry is evolving in all three lines. So, what does Claude do when Lucic comes back? Sit Paille and add looch to Cameron and Thornton ? Maybe sit Thornton ? Are they playing better because of chemistry[ knowing what each is doing?] or fear of the trade deadline. This is the team Chiarelli thought he would have, so who does he trade ? Obviously not Thomas's best effort, but it was the Flyers, and they are a good team. All those talked about, Ryder, Wheeler, are playing better; and what about defense when Stuart comes back?? McQuaid is playing well, no mistakes; Kamfer is playing great; is it time to trade Boychuck?
