Timonen on Wednesday’s win: “We got lucky”

The Philadelphia Flyers pulled off a huge comeback win in Pittsburgh on Wednesday, but can they do it again? Kimmo Timonen hopes they don’t have to find out.

“To be honest, I think we got lucky last night,” Timonen said. “We didn’t start the way we wanted to start. It’s not easy building a play against the top team in the league, so that’s why I say we got lucky. Tomorrow we have to be a totally different team in the first period.”

Timonen referring to more than just Danny Briere‘s offside goal.

The Flyers are one of the best teams in the NHL when it comes to bouncing back after giving up the first goal, but the Penguins shouldn’t be underestimated. A lot had to go right for the Flyers to escape Game 1 with a win. Under similar circumstances, they might not be so lucky next time. Philadelphia has the edge in the series now, but the Penguins aren’t against the ropes yet.

As Timonen said, they need to come out strong on Friday if they want to take advantage of their “lucky” win.

      Funny, I didn’t see a lot of you in all those threads talking about how badly the Pens botched the game. Why so quiet then?

    Do you ever at least attempt to make intelligent sounding posts or are you just content posting random, pointless gibberish just to fulfill the trolling quotas you must set for yourself?

      Just because you threw a bunch of extra words in your sentence doesn’t make you sound smart I can throw the word juxtapose in my post too. See big word I’m smart. Philly4lyfe yo dawg

        I don’t get it. What did you consider a “big word” in his post?

        Pretty sad if “gibberish, trolling or quota” are considered big words to you.

    Can we get 1 article on this game not just talking about the offsides goal. These writers are annoying. At least mention the icing goal as well for crying out loud.

    What a pathetic post

    Sry, not sure what I was thinking. I should have known there is no such thing as an intelligent pens fan. My mistake.

      To be fair, I’m beginning to think there’s only one Pens fan on this site, he just has 250 screen names.

    And I’m beginning to think flyers fans have WAY too much time on their hands and too many people content with sitting here talking about a game. Did you see how many posts there are for the other games? The pens flyers games get 10x as many, all from flyers fans either overreacting to everything or talking sh*t. It’s not that there’s no penguin fans on here (which flyer fans say all the time) its that there’s more flyer fans than anyone else times 10. Not sure if that’s good or bad….

      All I got from this post is that Sidney Crosby is a baby.

      I think you’re missing the fact that hockey fans in general are paying more attention to his series bc of the rivalry and the stuff that went on during the end of the season. Game 1 got NBC the best ratings for a game one since 2002. Now I haven’t done too much research on this, probably bc I don’t care THAT much, but I’ve seen plenty of Habs, Rangers, Bruins and Leaf fans posting the same stuff that Philly does about Pitt whining and giving out cheap shots. In the same threads you’ll see one Pitt fan with 40 different names which all refer to the size of Crosby’s penis claiming he’s started an army with himself……..And you’re worried about the amount of Flyers’ fans on here? Go get your boy some help!

    Pens fan says-wwwaaaa. Flyers fan says- stop faking every penalty LeTang, Crosby, Malkin, and the rest of the Penguins team. The fact that the Penguins lost this offsides is coming up all the time. Wasn’t the fact that the Penguins were outplayed after the 1st period or the fact that Schenn was a beast all over the ice, or the fact that Sean C. owned Malkin all night. No PHT and every other Penguin’s butt kisser has to find or make excuses. This is why a series is 7 games, but it’ll only take 5 in my eyes. C-ya Pens fans
