A New Curse?

With a 5-3 loss to the Montreal Canadians tonight, the Philadelphia Flyers have extended their losing streak to 7 games. Not only have the lost 7 straight, but every single last one was in regulation, so not a single point has been gained. The losing streak started back on February 6th in a game against the Capitals, which may be remembered best as Ron Hextall night, with the Flyers having a lengthy ceremony before the game. And another lengthy ceremony during the first intermission. Well, the hockey gods were apparently upset with the lengthy delay during the game. The NHL certainly was, as they have fined the Flyers $25,000 for failing to forthcoming with the length of the pending delay. Since the Flyers have not won a game since the ceremony, one has to wonder if the Flyers have been cursed by Ron Hextall?

I leave you with my personal favorite Ron Hextall moment.

I like it (the curse and the goal).
