I'll be at the game tonight. Quick question, when did we stop scoring for cases of tasty cake?


ProfessorDerp22

Brad Marchand only tips 3%.


SplendaMan

Tbh that's better than a lot :(


SplendaMan

I never thought it would be possible but I think I have...too much beer???

Your first thought was correct sir!

Brad Marchand eats pizza with a knife and fork


badscene518

Sitting on the Bruins shoot twice side. So Jones better make some massive saves.


all_these_moneys

Jokes aside, I really hope a change of atmosphere is exactly what Risto needed to step up his game. He won't be looked at as the #1D here, or even top pairing, so hopefully easier matchups will do him wonders as well. Really don't want that trade to be as bad as it was at face value.


yumyumb33r

I live out west and work late tonight, so ill miss streaming the game. Any way I can watch it tonight or do I have to wait until espn+ has it on demand?


myflyerwire

I hope that TNT gets their act together tonight.


Dont_Call_Me_John

The broadcasts were pretty good last week, whatever was going on in preseason got worked out

Brad Marchand reminds the teacher that she didn’t assign homework.

Brad Marchand puts lettuce on his cheesesteak.


robspeaks

Brad Marchand thinks a draft is an animal with a long neck.


Dr_A_Kreiger

This is the best one.

Honestly, I love this.

greekleaderofthemall

Does anyone know what time the doors open at WFC tonight? I think 6 but want to double check?


Diggums53

Yup. 6


greekleaderofthemall

Thanks!


kbuck30

Going to a bar in Bruins country to watch this game. Def repping my G reverse retro jersey! Can't wait to get shit on and hopefully the boys kick some ass!


Clolarion

RASMUS RASMUS RASMUS


dynamys

Eh, I'll keep my expectations in check. Probably gonna get downvoted out of emotion but I've never been a fan of him. Sabres allowed more shots, chances, and worse 5v5 performance/goal differential with him on the ice than off. It's really not something you want to see out of any defensemen. On top of that, his feet are cinder blocks.


Clolarion

I will agree that he was not great IN BUFFALO! Here it will most likely be a different story. You are forgetting he was on the worst team of the last decade, it wasn’t all his fault. A new atmosphere and an actual stable ownership and coaching circle will do wonders for his play. TRUST MY GOOD FRIEND, TRUST IN RASMUS!


dynamys

If buffalo is that terrible of a team, and they perform BETTER with Rasmus OFF the ice, than what's that say about Rasmus?


jgriff93

Entirely different defense systems in place for him, as well.


Clolarion

That he lacked confidence because his team sucked? Because he was forced to play top line minutes against the leagues best on dare I say it again, the worst team of the last decade? Ownership that constantly shifted, new coaches every year? You seriously think that he sucked soley based on his own skill level? Jesus dude throw him a bone


UnloosedMoose

Not to mention that the best defensemen he's ever played with is a 24 year old, being on a team with Ellis, i think, will do him wonders.

Brad Marchand is the guy who asks a question that makes the meeting go on for an extra 30 minutes


DudicalAwesome

This one is good because it actually made me mad.


CarterHartArrest

Marchand only puts ketchup on his hotdog.

I hate Marchand as much as the next guy, but that’s how you’re supposed to eat a hotdog.

After hearing "This Girl" 6 times at the Kraken game it is really growing on me. I do miss Feel the Shake a bit though.


UnloosedMoose

That's Stockholm speaking.


BaronVonDouche

It could be. Just give it a couple games and you'll be getting a Pavlovian Hype Boner when you hear it just like me!

I have an extra ticket to tonight's game. Somebody please take it


pdh1919

I’ll gladly take it!


ProjectEureka

Okay


speckontheground

I know Hart has the day off but I’d love to pull one out tonight for my birthday. I’ll be wearing my orange all day either way. Fuck Boston.


qwopcircles

Don't sleep on Jones. He can be clutch when it counts


speckontheground

Not sleeping on him per say, just not as confident right now. We’ll see how he does in between em tonight. I just hope the boys come out the gate like they did Monday.


Anthemz

Happy birthday!


exemplarytrombonist

Ayo fuck Boston. I hope we beat the shit out of rat man tonight.


tacjos

It's unnaturally warm out today......looks like WFC is gonna be heatin' up today boys


LePwnz0rs

Anyone know off the top of the head if the stadium sells NA beer? Have tickets for the game tonight but can’t drink for a little bit


Schmosby0514

They will most likely carry o douyls. I’m hoping they starting selling hienkin zero and Stella. Stella’s NA is surprisingly good


elentiyaa

They have the Athletic Brewing NA Beer this season that they have been pushing super hard at games.


Schmosby0514

Thanks!! Didn’t know that


LePwnz0rs

I haven’t tried Stella’s NA, but the Heineken zero is pretty good. There’s some really good NA craft beers out too, but I doubt they’ll ever carry them


Schmosby0514

Try it, it’s not bud. The one I was most excited for and the most disappointed about was labatts NA


elentiyaa

I know they have at least one for sure!


LePwnz0rs

Oh thank the lord! I was down in Charlotte for the eagles panthers game and they had none. Any idea off the top of your head where they sell it?


pcomet235

there's a section of the remodeled area on the first floor that has huge wawa style fridge cases, full of beer. I'd imagine they have some there.


Risen-Phoenix

There are "cafes" on the 100-series floor that have NA beer options. I think I saw them around 105-106? and the exact opposite size of the stadium. You'll see them


beatboxbilliam

Let's fuckin go. I wanna see win bear tonight!


UnloosedMoose

Ehem, FUCK BOSTON. FUCK RAT RATATOUILLE WAS A CUTE MOVIE THOUGH. UNLIKE FUCKING BOSTON. FUCK THEIR ACCENT. ONLY ONE WORSE IS YINZER. FUCK THE PENS. FUCK THE STIGMATIZATION OF MENTAL HEALTH THAT MAKES ME FEEL GUILTY FOR TAKING A MENTAL HEALTH DAY OFF OF WORK. FUCK IF WATCHING THE FLYERS IS GOOD FOR MY MENTAL HEALTH. FUCKING SCARED THAT ALL TEAMS THAT LOST OUR HYPOTHETICAL BAD PICK UPS ARE UNDEFEATED. FUCK FEAR . FUCKING PLAN THE PARADE ALREADY. FUCKING ONLY KUNG I KNOW IS THAT KUNG FU FIGHTING SONG. FUCK PASTA. bergeron is cool tho. FUCK TIM THOMAS FUCK HARVARD. FUCK BOSTON. GO FLY GUYS GO.


Ibadtendy

Really like that you got Tim Thomas in there. Chef's kiss


mls5594

I agree with everything except I’ll take the western PA accent over the Boston accent any day


tictacballsack

Oh boy I think we are gonna play real well tonight. Fuck Boston, let’s make them look like the dumb animals they are


ClearSights

Boston has only played 1 game so far? Wtf


gabbagabbahey38

What's on the menu for this evening? I'm thinking steak.

Leftover pizza or new takeout.

The_Flyers_Fan

I'm from mass and would really appreciate it if the flyers could beat the brakes off the bruins so I can talk my shit


robspeaks

Trying to imagine what sort of homily you heard that got you fired up to beat the Bruins


The_Flyers_Fan

Listening to Jack Edwards commentate games all my life and 2011


Wekilledit88

You don't need a vaccine card to get in to the WFC do you? Pretty sure I threw mine out by accident cleaning out my home office and I'm irritated lol.


xxphantomxx77

Masks are “required” at the arena. I was there Monday and not really anybody following that or enforcing it. If you’re weird about that I wouldn’t go unvaccinated cuz not much coverage going on lol


elentiyaa

Yeah, it’s crazy how little enforcement there is now compared to the games I went to at limited capacity. I guess they have more important things to worry about and it’s way harder at full capacity to enforce.


madhatta42

You do not need one. But masks are required


elentiyaa

You do not!


Jameze123

Brad Marchand is an angry little elf. Pass it on…


murderfuk

Brad Marchand hates baby animals


TwoForHawat

Hey now, I can think of one baby animal that he absolutely adores.


SSCoffin

Rats or weasels, right?


murderfuk

I always though those were full grown gerbils that he puts in there?


NowFook

Whos here for another Giroux elite year? Would love to see Giroux casually just turn back the clock again and score like 90 points to remind everybody how damn good he still is. If Giroux keeps this sniping mojo he shows every once in awhile I could see him having another huge PPG year. If he just put all his focus on offense i think he would easily break PPG. Also cant wait for TK to show how dumb it was for many fans to want to trade him this past offseason.


robspeaks

Me: 90 points fuck yeah Also me: 65 points would make for easier contract negotiations


iTITAN34

thats true, but I also have no issue with G getting his money.


robspeaks

The issue isn't with G getting paid, it's with fitting him under the cap.


iTITAN34

for sure, wonder if he would take a little less to stick around. not that he is obligated to, but he seems like that kinda guy


The_Flyers_Fan

I'm ready for it, he looks like he's possessed by the hockey gods themselves out there. He's going to have a 90 point season there's no doubt in my mind.


Pendraflare59

Indeed. Giroux was one of two bright spots last year among the vets, along with Couturier, carrying these knuckleheads like it was his job


madhatta42

Been doing that his whole career haha


NowFook

The teams stats with Giroux on the ice vs off last year were insane. Flyers were dominant on both sides of puck with him on and vice versa when off.


knight_who_says_fuck

Can’t wait to see who rag dolls Ratfink Marchand first - Risto, Mac, or the newest oldest brawler Thompson


l_rufus_californicus

I would give up booze for a month to see Thompson thomp on Marchand.


robspeaks

It’s bizarre that this is only Boston’s second game.


apsae27

Meanwhile, Seattle has played 5, including 2(?) back to backs. The start to this season makes absolutely no sense


Dont_Call_Me_John

It probably doesn't help that 2 teams didn't have their home stadiums ready for opening day lol


ArminbanVuuren

does WFC have Farabee jerseys? asking for myself. lol


vivelaal

Yep, I bought one for my sister at the home opener. They had most players' home jerseys, many had reverse retros, and there were a few black alternates.


Arnie_pie_in_the_sky

Fuck the Bs


jarebear69420

McAvoy still drinks milk with his dinner


Hexys_broken_dreams

After hearing about Kane suspension for forging a vaccine card I absolutely believe he bet on hockey games he played in. Dude is just that dumb. Get him out of the league already


kbuck30

Wouldn't shock me if he is sounds like the sharks don't want him back and I'm not sure anyone will want the headache of signing him.

badscene518

Will be there tonight. 33rd NHL game attended. Last Flyers game I went to was that dreadful season opener against The Sharks. Hopefully tonight goes better.


n333rds

I really hope Jones makes some great saves (which would become goals if he doesn’t)


kah_blouie

I hope he makes some regular saves (which would become goals if he doesn't)


SSCoffin

Don’t rule out the iron to bail out jones (which would become goals if it doesn’t)


nic_cage_da_elephant

I was there Gandalf


electricamethyst

I’m excited to see Risto play


WooderFountain

It's he definitely IN tonight?


electricamethyst

Yep! Instagram posted today was his debut

We must prepare for war with the bears!


Shady577

Getting shit on my a bird sucks enough, getting shit on my a bear would really suck


LSKTheGreat1

I think that would ruin my entire week.


NippleDickPussyBhole

Bears are already terrifying enough


LSKTheGreat1

Truth.


animalsciences

Would make my job a lot fucking scarier.


Rustytire

I would imagine that any animal suddenly gaining the ability to fly would be a challenge.


animalsciences

It would be a challenge but some animals would just be more of a pain in the ass than a danger.


LSKTheGreat1

I am happy it is not that way. I wouldn't want a flying bear to maul you.


animalsciences

Yea I just worry about ground bears mauling me. And drop bears they are dangerous too.


LSKTheGreat1

If a bear mauls you, I will come personally fight that bear to avenge you.


animalsciences

Good luck, it’s winter time so they have packed on the pounds.


LSKTheGreat1

Nothing is too great to avenge you


Nochtilus

They would be the apex predator of the planet.


LSKTheGreat1

Easily. A flying bear hunting you for sport simply because it can. Imagine these flying bears treating the planet like we do. Goddamn I want that movie.


mitt_awing

Who wins in a fight - a bear that can fly, or a shark with arms and legs?


LSKTheGreat1

Bear that can fly. Flight beats land based 99 times out of 100


kc9203

Who is excited for Martin Jones tonight??? I know I’m ready for a stressful evening yelling about how Holtby signed for the same contract


WooderFountain

Carter Hart should play 75 games, and I mean that sincerely.


Phillyfreak5

75 games including a playoff run, sure. If you just mean regular season, you're out of touch.


DudicalAwesome

I've said it before and I'll say it again: Charlie McAvoy is a real life Garbage Pail kid and I won't hear any different.


beau9292

Member when Marchand whiffed on the puck in the shootout? I member
