Turn Out the Lights

As “Dandy” Don Meredith used to croon on Monday Night Football, “Turn Out the Lights, the Party’s Over.” Flyers may have hit the rock bottom in this delusional season with inexcusable defeat or giveaway, to the Buffalo Sabres, 5-3.

After an impressive win over the Boston Bruins which, temporarily kept the mourners away from the Flyers season. The orange and black seemed disinterested in salvaging any hope there was for this season. For the first time since March 18, the Orange and Black seized a two-goal lead with lamplighters from Oskar Lindblom and Joel Farabee.

Buffalo was without Jack Eichel and Taylor Hall. They seemed ripe for the picking. Except neither the Flyers nor the Sabres got the memo. Rapid succession goals were the difference in this one.

After Shayne Gostisbehere gave Philly a lead at the 3:47 mark of the third, adult beverages and expensive cigars were in order. Sadly, for Flyer fans, the beverage turned out to vinegar and the cigars were the exploding type. So, Chuck Fletcher, who has been in a game of high-stakes poker, has now been called.

Carter Hart made 26 saves but, is he becoming the Flyers version of Carson Wentz? Gonna be an interesting Sunday night into Monday at 3 pm. Turn out the lights because this thing looks way over.
