Phillies Trade Ben Francisco to the Blue Jays; I Have Yet Another Useless Jersey

3 on 3 for the week of 12.11.2011

Welcome to this week’s 3-on-3, where we look back on the week that was for the Philadelphia Flyers. The Flyers won all three games last week to gain 6 points and take over the overall lead in the Eastern Conference from the Pittsburgh Penguins. Let’s look at this week’s 3 “hot” and 3 “not”: 

3 ”hot”:

  1. Claude Giroux: “G” has continued his stellar play and has taken over the scoring lead in the NHL with 39 points, 3 points ahead of Toronto’s Phil Kessel. Claude totaled one goal and 7 assists in the 3 games but left in the second period on Saturday with an "upper-body" injury when teammate Wayne Simmonds ran into the back of his head. Giroux leads all forwards in average ice time with 21:28 per game and is a plus-7. Hopefully, he will not miss any time as he has been playing great hockey lately.

  2. Scott Hartnell: “Harts” has been riding the wave with his linemates Jaromir Jagr and Giroux,but Scott has been putting up some good numbers all by himself. Hartnell had 3 goals and an assist in 3 games and is a team high plus-17. He currently has a five-game goal scoring streak as well. If he keeps it up, Hartnell will be on pace for a career year, one on par with his 30-goal season in 2008-09.

  3. Jaromir Jagr: The ageless wonder notched 2 goals and an assist in the 3 games last week, continuing his great return to the NHL. Jagr ranks 3rd on the team in scoring and fourth in goals and is a plus-7 as well. He continues to play both ends of the ice equally well, which was not always the case early in his career.


  1. No one really: The team is on a five-game winning streak, so other than a misplay here and there, everyone on the team is playing well. Not much to complain about when it’s all going right, despite injuries and playing 9 rookies this season.

That’s it for this week’s 3-on-3, join me next week when we look back at 2 road tilts against Washington and Montreal and a home contest with Boston.
