Game Day: Flyers
The Thrashers take on the top team in the Eastern Conference in what, if the playoffs started today, would be their first round matchup.
The Flyers are experiencing unusual success this year despite missing future hall of fame defenseman Chris Pronger for a long stretch. Their good fortune is due in large part to the emergence of Sergei Bobrovski in net.
Long time NHL fans know that this turn of events is entirely accidental, as the Flyers' charter contains a clause in which they are bound to attempt to win a Stanley Cup with mediocre-to-terrible goaltending.
