The game-winning goal by Philadelphia Flyers’ Claude Giroux.
The Flyers are horrible in shootouts. Just terrible. They’re 2-8 in them this season, the most losses in the league and the second-fewest wins. And it looked like last night’s game against the Winnipeg Jets was headed to another shootout.
But then Shayne Gostisbehere and Claude Giroux stepped in. NHL overtimes are 3-on-3, and the Flyers had a 2-on-1 break with about 20 seconds left. But as Giroux attempted to pass it to Gostisbehere, the Jets’ Mark Scheifele tipped the pass into the air. But Gostisbehere dove for it, hit it with his stick, stopped it with his glove, then passed it to a wide open Giroux in front of the net. He scored, and the Wells Fargo Center crowd went wild.

It may be hard to believe — especially with the glimpses of warm weather here and there — but autumn is approaching its final few weeks. In Philly, fall is a clear sign of change in the air, but in videographer Cory J. Popp’s newest video, the season takes on a kind of citywide peace, as well. Popp takes his camera through the streets of Philly to explore this near-perfect autumn season and the city in action for a second time.
It is almost October, and that means we are getting very close to Sixers season. While the Sixers have not exactly been very good recently, we hoopheads are excited that pro basketball (or some facsimile of it) will return to Philadelphia. Read more »
The Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society has been absolutely destroying social media recently, with cute cats and cute dogs filling up our Instagram, Twitter and Facebook timelines.
But yesterday they may have topped themselves. In an effort to drum up donations, PAWS posted a video of a bunch of kittens playing on top of Comcast, PGW and other bills while “Bills Bills Bills” by Destiny’s Child played. Aww! Read more »
In the fifth episode of his “Uncover Philly” series, videographer Cory J. Popp brings us the first weekend of Spruce Street Harbor Park (SSHP)—a perfect minute-and-thirty-second video to get lost in if you haven’t had the chance to check out the glowing oasis on the Delaware Waterfront.
The flick captures everything we’ve heard about SSHP so far: the outdoor roller rink, the food trucks, the hammocks. But it really gets into its groove around the 16-second mark, when the city goes dark and those hanging, light saber-like tree lights illuminate the communal spaces underneath. It’s like something out of a fairyland. Delaware River Waterfront Corporation definitely turned up the notch on SSHP this year. Check out the video above, then head out to experience it for yourself if you haven’t already.
After the womp-womp that was her last video, “Style,” Taylor Swift has decided to turn things up a notch for her next offering by inviting a handful of her famous pals to star as elaborate, funny-named noir characters. She tweeted a hint about the video, for the song “Bad Blood,” yesterday evening, explaining that each star chose their own name and persona:
Philly videographer Cory Popp has wowed us with videos over the past few years, namely a couple works that feature Philadelphia covered in snow and ice. They were gorgeous in the dead of winter, when we didn’t mind looking at stuff like that, but ain’t nobody got time for that right now. With that in mind, I present Popp’s latest, “Philly in Bloom.”
The horde show up in random places all over the city. Check out the video to see them lurking from beneath a bridge in Fairmount Park, in the plaza of City Hall and even down one of those cramped, cobblestone streets in, I’m guessing, Old City.
By now you’ve probably caught sight of the Upworthy-approved “Love Has No Labels” PSA that went viral this week. The work features folks from various sexual, religious and ethnic backgrounds as skeletons behind an X-ray screen set up on a busy strip in Los Angeles. The point of the project is to show that we all look alike underneath—or in this case as skeletons—and that love, as the title suggests, should carry no labels.
One of the couples featured in the project has local ties: Germantown native Anthony Henderson, who has since moved to Los Angeles to become a fashion stylist to the stars, shows up with his husband—and former Philadelphia suburbanite—Jason Strong and their son Marcelino.
