Congratulations to Scott Hartnell on his 500th NHL point that he earned last night on the first goal of the game.
Now that I’ve got that out of the way… Hartnell has had a rough season. He has six goals and nine assists through 33 games and has been demoted from the top line. He is skating alongside Brayden Schenn and Wayne Simmonds on the second line for the time being, but it has been widely speculated that he will be moved to the fourth line upon the return of Steve Downie. Flyers fans throughout the twitter-sphere are lamenting his contract and wishing he could be traded. It has not been a good year for Hartnell and for that, he has made it onto the naughty list.
