9:48 am
patrick roy losing it. and the flyers cash in on that power play. that is a heck of a shot. 1-0 flyers. then second period, still on that same power play, wayne simmonds makes him pay. the flyers almost let a 4-0 lead slip away. the flyers hold on 4-3, and they are not happy about what happened to luke schenn. >> i thought he should have got kicked out the rest of the game. obviously the refs decided that it was just a five-minute. but that's their decision. can't do anything about that now. >> how many times do you go into a corner and you have a forward in front of you. if you push him, he goes head-first into the boards. you just don't do it. it's dangerous, he goes head-first. you know, he was lucky. he hurt his shoulder, but i think a hit like that, you've got to get thrown out of the game. it's not a question. >> and eagles kicker cody parkey
