Game Day (2-4) Habs @ Flyers


So after the last two games the Flyers are on a roll,
and hopefully a big one.

Argue all you want, but the Flyers should be 3 - 0 right now,
despite the fact we love losing 2 goal leads.

This could be the deciding game of the series if the Flyers win,
so it's definitely a clutch game.

On a side note, Carbonneau PLEASE let Carey Price play tonight,
he's really a great goalie and you should have faith in him -- really.

Accurate... [MrHockey]

After Hatcher's meh boarding misconduct, he'll be back tonight;
along with our favorite goalie pest, Mike Knuble.

The Habs will be out for blood tonight trying to pull off an away win to show they can win on the road.
So we're in for a tense game that hopefully won't get any ridiculous referee interference
(can we make that a 2 minute minor with no refs on the ice?)

Marty Biron will still be in with his stellar playoff performance,
so we're counting on him for another awesome game.


:: Knuble will be back for tonight, which is a huge gain in front. [ Flyers ]
Great guy to have in front of the goalie, it's great to have him back
after that hamstring injury.

:: After a shaky series, Carbonneau is unsure of which goalie will start tonight [ Flyers ]
We're hoping for Carey "Swiss Cheese" Price

:: "I know if we keep playing like this, we'll be OK," Carbonneau said. [ ]
Sounds good to me Habs

:: Biron hates the Canadians [ ]
"My parents still talk about that game," Biron said. "How the Canadiens cheated..."

Welcome to The Orange Crush

Woot! Welcome to the The Orange Crush Blog, the new win in the world of hockey.

In an attempt to offer a Flyers blog that doesn't suck, we've created this beautiful work of coding glory.

We'll be offering you game highlights, hockey articles, and a good supply of immature hockey humor.

Despite starting this blog at the very end of the season, stay tuned for our playoff coverage
of the Flyers and some general around the league info (not to mention off-season posting).

Just to let you know where we stand...

We applaud you sir - touché

**TOCB is not a direct copy of any well known hockey blogs... we swear.

The Orange Crush FAQ

Welcome to The Orange Crush FAQ.

The goal behind our blog is to give Flyers fans a place to entertain and be entertained.
We want to keep a community atmosphere here at TOC.

We view the comments section as more of a message board
where everyone can talk about anything that's on their mind.

We aren't here to force feed you information and jokes.

The idea is to get you readers involved.
We are just looking for readers, commenters, photoshops, pictures, and anything else there is to be sent in.
We love hearing from you guys, and giving you a chance to interact.

This is a FAQ to let people know what the deal is and how we plan to run the website.

So where did the idea of The Orange Crush come from?
  • We really just wanted to make a new blog for the Flyers. There haven't been many Flyers blogs around and the only way to get everything we wanted in a Flyers blog was to make the blog ourselves. We just hope we're not the only ones.
When was The Orance Crush created?
  • After a few days of looking for writers/shoppers/helpers the official first post was on April 29, 2008.
Why should we contact The Orange Crush? How?
  • We love getting photoshops, stories, pictures, links, fan mail, and yes even hate mail. Send us pretty much anything NHL related or not. Or if you just want to discuss some hockey we're always down.
  • To exchange links.
You can contact us at

Why do you care about a community feel?
  • We think the idea behind a blog shouldn't be to present but to share, so we hope to share information, jokes, pictures, whatever. The community feel keeps people involved and gives people a site to go to.
Are comments moderated?
  • Nope, not even a little. We just hope that the stupid posts can be ignore because we aren't here to judge your opinons.
Who runs The Orange Crush?
  • We have 3 writers Mike, Becky, and the infamous FlyersFan88. At the moment we don't have any miscellaneos contributors, but if anyone would be interested feel free to send us an email. Otherwise, we'll make due.
How do I get my link on the sidebar?
  • Just send us an email asking to link swap and as long as it fits in one of our categories we'll be sure to add you.
How often do you post?
  • We post every single day whenever possible. We try to get it up early morning of the next day, but if it's not posted you can almost always hope for one in the evening.
What is What Ya Drinkin'?
  • What Ya Drinkin' is The Orange Crush game where we ask readers to email us a picture of whatever they're drinking during the game (Alcohol or otherwise) next to something Flyers related (Hat, Jersey, Pictures, Puck, Bag, etc. etc.). Be creative!
  • You have until about 1:00am after the game, unless we weren't able to get a post up that night at which point you can send it in all the next day until we post.
Are you secretly The Pensblog?
  • Sorry to all your conspiracy advocates, but we are not. We do admit that The Pensblog was obviously a big inspiration for the blog, mostly because we like the way they do things.
  • We are in no way run by [ The Pensblog ], we just think they're a great example of the way blogging should be done, despite them being Pens fans. We think they're some great competition and the crew over there are cool guys. Regardless, we are independent of them, I promise.

If anyone has anything else they think we should add to the FAQ be sure to let us knowin the comments.
