Flyers reincarnate Reg Dunlop, pummel Panthers 5-1; David Booth hospitalized

Panthers vs Flyers coverage                  Broad Street Hockey

 

Shoulders were flying high for Philadelphia, as the home team literally knocked the collective head off of Florida.

Forget the final score: Mike Richard's "collision" with David Booth was not unexpected simply in its occurance, only in it's ferocity.

Booth, scrambling into the offensive zone in the second period, began to turn his head toward Richards and the considerable momentum he was carrying, taking a high shoulder to the face, knocking him headfirst to the ice, and left motionless for several seconds.

This was not the first issue of the evening: Tollefson on Dominic Moore early in the first (drawing a two-way bloody nose), a knee-on-knee to Radek Dvorak later, who left the game. Rookie Dmitry Kulikov was later targeted with a face-first drive into the boards.

Just another night in the City of Brotherly Love. Barbarians.


Nuts and bolts? Cats played far better than the score reflected through two periods. They were quick, improvisational, and above all prepared. Just not for what transpired.

Gonna continue searching for news on Booth and Dvorak, which will post as I locate it. Go Cats, and our thoughts are with David and Radek.
