Yup, the Flyers are starting Emery Saturday

Nov 2, 2013, 7:01 PM EST

The rumblings were that the Philadelphia Flyers were being rather secretive about their goaltending choice on Saturday. Could it be because they’re rolling with Ray Emery after Friday’s mess?

CSNPhilly.com’s Tim Panaccio reports that they’re going with the 31-year-old even though he seemed to be a hard man to find before the game:

Say what you want about the Flyers, at least they’re entertaining, even when their season seems like it’s in danger of spinning down the tubes.

It’s tough to argue that Emery’s getting the nod against New Jersey tonight because of his recent performances. Then again, Steve Mason was tagged with the loss after putting up nearly identical numbers to Emery on Friday in that 7-0 debacle to Washington, so maybe that explains the logic.

Some might argue Emery’s being rewarded for his pugnacious actions, but whatever the explanation might be, the Flyers are doing things their way.

In other goalie news, James Reimer‘s getting the nod for Toronto and PHT compiled other goalie nods in this post.

    This team is garbage. 2013 is over. Trade whoever.

      Watch hockey much?

        Buy Gamecenter every year. Probably have missed a dozen games since 2006.

        Your ignorant post suggests otherwise. Just sayin’

    Hopefully somebody runs him.

      Go check out Razors fight card. Pretty sure he would welcome it. This isn’t Ryan Miller were talking about.

    Man, **** the Flyers. Maybe they’ll play the Sabres and each team’s *** holes will get injured. #BestCaseScenarios

      Or maybe they’ll break Crosby’s jaw again.

    I can’t believe nobody stepped in to stop Emery from punching him in the back of the head!

    • broadstreetbeatdown - Nov 2, 2013 at 9:16 PM

      It was too funny to watch. Why stop it?

        for once we agree !

    I sincerely hope Emery catches a hard slap shot in the head. Maybe that will turn him back into a human.

    • broadstreetbeatdown - Nov 2, 2013 at 9:15 PM

      I hope Emery pitches a shutout.

      • theskinsman - Nov 2, 2013 at 9:17 PM

        He did, fighting a guy who clearly didn’t want to, and clearly didn’t know how to. If I were the opposing coach,I’d send my enforcer to hurt him. Every time he was on the ice. Forever.

      • broadstreetbeatdown - Nov 2, 2013 at 9:23 PM

        I guess its a good thing you’re not an NHL coach then.

      • broadstreetbeatdown - Nov 2, 2013 at 9:37 PM

        I guess I was right. Great job getting the shutout and beating the snot out of Holtby, Razor.

    @Broadsteatbeatdown all your post on PHT just confirms what a piece of Sh..t you are. Emory acted just like the fans who supports him. But I guess you wouldn’t expect anything else from the filthiest city in the US. So go ahead put that team of losers up on your clown they and you still suck.

    • broadstreetbeatdown - Nov 3, 2013 at 1:52 AM

      Holy crap! Besides that I’m a POS and Philly sucks. I need a retard interpreter to understand the rest of your post.

    Do the Crapital fans have any room to talk ? oh wait they cant cause they choke too much to get a clear cut sentence out of their mouths

    This game has been violent for decades,but as soon as a black man gets the best of a white man its time for a change SMH!

    • President Charles Logan - Nov 3, 2013 at 11:52 AM

      LOL!!! best post of the day!
