We meet our virtual opposites today in the Philadelphia Flyers, a team that's 5-2-1 to our 2-5-1. They also happen to still have their 1st round pick in the mix, you know, Sean Couturier, the guy we didn't want. Turns out, the kid's pretty good. Who knew? Oh yeah. And...yeah. Et tu?
But the story's not over for the comparison between Mark Scheifele and Couturier, so we'll let the sleeping dogs lie. The more pertinent thing is this is another important game for the Jets, and we need to get some points to convince Claude Noel that these lines are actually working pretty well. Read: I will cry if he breaks up "BAK in the USSR" or Ladd's Little Wheeler. Yet supposedly it's not out of the question.

New Player Nickname: "BAK in the USSR" for the Burmi-Antro-Kane line. You win, Fetch.
What To Do if You're Going to the Game: Wear a fanny pack, and pay for everything in coins from it (not hard if you're Canadian, but the game's in Philly).
Prediction: Flyers 7 to 1. And Couturier scores a goal just to rub it in. And then Holmgren sends him down to juniors for the coup de gras.
