The Flyers winning streak finally came to an end at a staggering ten games this past week, but it was an impressive feat. However, thanks to the Columbus Blue Jackets’ own nine-game winning streak, and to the fact that the Metropolitan Division is the best division in hockey, the Flyers are still only fifth(!) in their division. The Oilers are still in the top three in the Pacific, which in the middle of December is quite astonishing given recent history. Coming soon: the holiday break! And the World Juniors!
It was a rough week for the Hockey Feels crew, where the results of the 2016 US election knocked most of the joy out of life for both Rachel and Steven, and their enthusiasm for hockey and other diversions also suffered. Good thing, too, as both the Oilers and Flyers had less than inspiring weeks on the ice. However, the crew presses on to talk about Eric Lindros, sports and politics, and other sundry hockey news items.
The Oilers continue to be impressive this season, winning back-to-back games over the weekend despite facing a bevy of injuries. The Flyers lost in Montreal on Saturday night, but also won back-to-back games earlier in the week. But the Columbus Blue Jackets shocked the hockey world with a stunning 10-0 win over the Montreal Canadiens. All this and more on this week’s Hockey Feels!
The first regular season meeting between Connor McDavid and Auston Matthews did not live up to the (massive) hype, with neither player registering a point in a 3-2 OT win for the Maple Leafs on November 1. The Flyers have had troubles keeping the puck out of their own net while displaying a knack for putting that puck in other teams’ nets. Steven and Rachel have thoughts about these developments and more on this week’s Hockey Feels!
