Philly PD May Use Taser if Savard Bites Again

Posted in Uncategorized on May 4, 2010 by flyersfan44

The Philadelphia Police Department may decide to use a taser on Bruins’ Marc Savard if he continues to bite Flyers during scrums. Flyers’ winger Dan Carcillo reported that Savard bit his finger during a shoving match in Game 2. Savard was suspended in 2003 for biting, so Carcillo’s claim is not out of the realm of possibility. Savard should be careful or he may end up like this guy:


Flyers Drop Two in Beantown

The Flyers are coming home having dropped the first two games of the Eastern Conference Semifinals against the Bruins. Two one-goal losses were tough. The Flyers played well for stretches of both games, but seemed to have been unable to match Boston’s intensity for full games. In Game 1, they came out rusty from the ten day layoff but played well in the second and third periods, coming from a 4-2 deficit to send the game into overtime. In overtime, however, the Bruins created an onslaught of shots (15-4) that ended with Marc Savard’s winning goal. In Game 2, a tight-checking affair was 2-2 in the third period, but you could see Boston taking the game away with wave after wave of attack that finally resulted in Milan Lucic’s goal with about seven minutes left. The Flyers couldn’t match Boston’s intensity throughout.

Thus far, Mike Richards, Danny Briere (despite his two miscues that led to goals in Game 1), Chris Pronger, and for the most part Brian Boucher have led the way with great play. More is needed from Scott Hartnell, James van Riemsdyk, and Claude Giroux if the Flyers hope to tie this series back in Philadelphia. They’ll need to win both at the Wachovia Center to keep this series from getting away.
