Hat Trick! Danny Briere's First as Flyer

Hat Trick! Danny Briere's First as Flyer

The Flyers' turkey will taste a little sweeter tomorrow after a nice 6-3 victory in Carolina.  The Fly guys scored four goals in the third period, three of them off of the stick of Danny Briere.  It was his first hat trick as a Flyer.

Scott Hartnell is earning his paycheck while there's no goalie on the ice.  He scored in garbage time on an empty netter for his second goal of the year.  His other goal was also on an empty net.

Yay, Flyers! Basically, we just wanted to post a picture of a nice pilgrim hat.

Karl-Anthony Towns tried coming at Joel Embiid on Instagram ... and it was a mistake

Karl-Anthony Towns tried coming at Joel Embiid on Instagram ... and it was a mistake

Joel Embiid didn’t let back stiffness keep him from returning to the Sixers’ lineup on Tuesday with a dominant effort in the team’s 118-112 OT win over the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Embiid had 28 points (8 of 16 shooting), 12 rebounds and eight assists in a career-high 39 minutes. However, the big man’s best performance might have come on social media the following day.

On Wednesday, Embiid sent out a picture on Instagram and Twitter of him scoring a bucket past fellow center Karl-Anthony Towns during the victory.

Euro stepping our way through Minnesota and we ended up raising the cat last night #TheProcess

A post shared by Joel "The Process" Embiid (@joelembiid) on

Towns, who had 19 points and 16 rebounds in the matchup, had a response. But much like on the court, Embiid got the best of this battle too.
