Thursday night’s game between the Philadelphia Flyers and Ottawa Senators was insanity.
No matter what side you were on, it’s hard not to sympathize with Flyers fans who feel robbed after several controversial late-game calls.
When there’s controversy in a hockey game, there’s usually entertainment to be had.
We pinpoint the five best reactions from the Flyers 5-4 loss to the Senators:
Ron Hextall following Mark Stone’s goal
When Mark Stone made it 4-2 for the Senators, the camera panned upstairs to GM Ron Hextall watching things unfold. You don’t have to be a professional lip-reader to understand what he is saying here.
Claude Giroux following the first disallowed goal
When a Brandon Manning blast from the point was waved off after it was deemed Jordan Weal interfered with goaltender Craig Anderson, Captain Claude Giroux appeared baffled listening to the explanation that was being given to head coach Dave Hakstol.
Jordan Weal following goaltender interference ruling
When it was ruled Jordan Weal interfered with goaltender Craig Anderson on the Brandon Manning goal, the young forward was in pure disbelief on the bench. He clearly doesn’t believe the right call was made.
Ron Hextall following goaltender interference ruling
While it wasn’t as good as his reaction to the Mark Stone goal, Hextall clearly wasn’t happy after it was determined Jordan Weal interfered with goaltender Craig Anderson on the Brandon Manning goal. Just one of those nights.
We all know what anger does to Claude Giroux’s game. He’s at his best when he’s mad. The captain let out his frustration following the Tom Pyatt goal that gave the Senators a 5-2 lead.
A frustrating night for the Flyers, but at least we got some great reaction gifs for future usage.
