The Flyers won again last night, taking their mostly meaningless but nonetheless enjoyable preseason record to 4-1-1. More important than the win, their powerplay unit was clicking again, scoring both of their goals en route to the 2-1 victory over the Devils.

Flyers won again last night, taking their mostly meaningless but
nonetheless enjoyable preseason record to 4-1-1. More important than the
win, their powerplay unit was clicking again, scoring both of their
goals en route to the 2-1 victory over the Devils.

The addition of a certain Czech winger has given instant life to one of the weakest units on the ice last season, as Jaromir Jagr continues finding a way to be the open man on the 5-on-4. Check out this puck movement, and the authority with which Jaro slams it home. Even breaks his stick:

It’s cool, the Devils. Just let him camp out there while Claude Giroux skates unmo’d into the slot.

Earlier in the game, Wayne Simmonds notched one on the powerplay as well, skating alongside Jagr and G for the man-up while JVR heals up. That goal and more highlights in the video below.
