TRH RECAP 72: Carter Blanche

KINGS 3, FLYERS 2

Still, I bet that Flyers fans have gotten over the whole thing.

Too sexy.

 

1. Jeff Carter

Thanks to Jeff Carter for setting aside a few minutes to talk about last night’s game.

Jeff, how did you feel once you scored that goal against your former club, was it a big weight of your shoulders?

And did it feel any more special doing it in front of Ed Snider and Paul Holmgren, the two people who told you that you were going to spend the rest of your career in Philadelphia?

Lastly, is there anything you’d like to say to the fans who inexplicably turned on you even though you did sign that long-term contract?
