Simon Gagne spoke to the media following the Flyers practice today.
Admin’s note: I apologize for the delay. I had some technical difficulties. Thanks for understanding. Following their hard-fought shootout win against the New Jersey Devils, the Philadelphia Flyers aimed to continue on the winning side of things as they headed off to Tampa on Monday. Unfortunately, they weren’t able to do so. The Lightning seemed [...]
After suffering a 5-2 loss in an atrocious game in New Jersey (which I apologize for not recaping, things and responsibilities got in the way) the Flyers returned home to Philadelphia to get a rematch against the Devils. They didn’t start off much better than in the last game, getting outshot and outplayed early on. [...]
Simon spoke to the media following his first game back in Philadelphia which the Flyers won 4-1.
Last night was a special night. If not for everybody then for Gagne fans in Philadelphia and Simon himself for sure. Last night’s game against the Washington Capitals was his first in the Flyers uniform since 2010. Getting traded from LA on Tuesday he still made it to Philadelphia on time to take part in [...]
I’m really happy to end this short “hiatus” that the website was on for the past week and welcome you to the fresh new design! It was a pleasure to dress the site into orange & black so I hope you like it. I kept the previous theme though because I find it very user friendly, clean and neat. Of course you can expect the regular updates now as you are used to! Starting now!
Shortly after the Flyers Wives Carnival, where you could meet the Flyers, among whom was also Simon, there’s another opportunity for you to meet him! Sports Vault is organizing a Simon Gagne signing this weekend. It will take place at Sports Vault, King of Prussia Mall Location, on March 16, 2013, from 4:30-6:00 pm. You need to buy tickets though to get the access.
I’m sorry I’m slacking on the updates but today I am leaving for the States and it required lot of my time and energy in the last couple days. That being said, due to the long flight etc. I won’t have access to the internet until tomorrow night so there won’t be any updates, unfortunately. I do apologize but I hope you’ll keep visiting! Thank you for your patience! I’ll see you very soon!
Last night was a special night. If not for everybody then for Gagne fans in Philadelphia and Simon himself for sure. Last night’s game against the Washington Capitals was his first in the Flyers uniform since 2010. Getting traded from LA on Tuesday he still made it to Philadelphia on time to take part in the game against the Caps. The Flyers started off really well scoring only 23 seconds into the game from a stick of Giroux. They made it 2-0 when Wayne Simmonds found the back of the net at 4:04 of the first. The Flyers showed a great effort, which showed especially in the 2nd period when they outshot the Capitals 12-3. The Wells Fargo Center exploded in great cheers when none other than Simon Gagne scored on a power play to make it 3-0 Flyers at 3:54 of the second period. The Flyers then added another goal when Max Talbot scored his first of the season. The Caps only managed to prevent Bryzgalov from getting a shutout when they made it 4-1 at 17:51 of the third, which was also the final score.
Simon played like he never left Philadelphia. He was fast and great on both ends of the ice. He played on a line alongside Sean Couturier and Max Talbot. He also saw some power play time on the 2nd PP unit and he used it as a chance to score his first goal of the season. The crowd in Philadelphia gave him a great welcome – cheers during warm-ups and also short tribute video of him that sparkled a standing ovation for Gagne. And Simon gave back by providing one of his best performances of the season. He had 4 shots on goal, 2hits, he was even in +/- rating and scored on a power play.
