Twitter Points are updated as of Sunday's Phantoms game.  I have one more Phantoms game this week so the top players should get additional points.
I am going to Habs at Flyers tonight I think I will be subtracting points from Mr Cammalleri.

First the pictures

The Phantoms to me looked tired.  I am very sure that they were tired.  4.5 hours to Glens Falls after Friday's game and 5.5 Hours to Hershey from Glens Falls I would be too.  Not much sleep and alot of hockey.

I was really proud of the Phantoms for keeping Hershey off the board in the first period.  It didn't hold up as well the rest of the game but you could see these guys were not giving up with out a fight.  There was fighting and Defensemen jumping up on the rush.  To me these are signs that this team is far from done.  I wish them continued success on Wednesday.  

Eric Wellwood and Stefan Legein were both injured in this game.  Legein was injured by Souray.  It seems everytime the Phantoms play the Bears this season Souray is involved with some injury.

The Phantoms did really well last night beating the league leading Wilkes Barre Scranton Penguins.  I think this shows that the Phantoms can play with anyone and have a very bright future. 

Here are the pictures from last night.  I hope you enjoy them.

Twitter Points update and a Busy hockey week

Danny Syvret and Stefan Legein are getting 5 points each for entertaining me this morning as well as reminding me I never did this post last night.

I am attending several Phantoms games over this next stretch.  Provided everything goes well I will be adding 20 points for each game. 

 Mike Cammalleri was injured this week I do not think he will be playing on Tuesday when I go to see the Flyers play the Canadiens.  You never know but knowing my luck that will be the case. 

This little stretch is pretty busy for me.  I saw the Flyers Tuesday night.  As you can tell I never got a post up about that game but I will give you the link for the pictures. 

I have 3 Phantoms games and one Flyers game with in the next week.  Please check back for Pictures and other updates.

I am really looking forward to tonight's Phantoms game.  I miss the Phantoms.  It had become my Friday night activity.  I am glad they are here for a Friday night game.  I feel with the amount of Twitter interaction that the Phantoms as just as close and familiar as the Flyers for me.  I am glad that so many of them have embraced that media.  I hope that all of those out there who are always saying bring up this one and that one come out and take a look at those players.  Game is on TV tonight too.  If you can not come watch in person watch on TV.  Take a look at these guys you want on the big roster. 

 I do feel really bad for the Phantoms.  They play here in Philly tonight then tomorrow in Glens Falls then Sunday in Hershey.  That is quite a few hours on the bus.  I would hope that the AHL schedule makers look next year.  It may have been better to do home and home with Hershey or Wilkes Barre  or maybe to have had Wilkes Barre, Binghamton, then Hershey to keep travel time to a minimum.  I think it will be hard on the Phantoms this weekend with all of that travel.  I will see though and let you know.

Twitter points update & Hertiage Classic > Winter Classic

 Twitter Points update:

I am giving Stefan Legein 20 points for giving his heart out on Twitter about the World Juniors.  I think it was commendable the point he was making

Heritage Classic thoughts

Maybe it is the Flames fan in me but I was not at all excited about this years Winter Classic knowing that the Flames will be playing the Canadians outside in February.  I thought that the HBO series helped fuel this years Winter Classic anticipation but not enjoying either of the teams playing makes it hard to keep my attention.  For me the Heritage classic has two of my favorite things the Calgary Flames and Mike Cammalleri.  Truly unless Cammalleri went back to being a Flame and the Flames played the Flyers, I couldn't be much happier. 

I have noticed that most of the talk has moved forward to who will be in next years Winter Classic but there is still one more NHL outdoor game this year.  I think that we need to make sure that is as much of a success as the Winter Classic. 

I urge you all to tell your friends and your neighbors to watch this year's Heritage classic.  It will take place on Sunday February 20th it will be televised on Versus.
