Off the Post: Hurricanes Dominate Flyers, Justin Williams Post Game Comments – On Thursday, the Carolina Hurricanes stormed into Philadelphia and handed the Flyers a 4-1 loss. Carolina right wing Justin Williams kicked off the scoring in the first period, and added another goal in the second period to give the Canes a 3-0 lead. He would finish the game with two goals and one assist. His +/- of +3 would lead the team, and he finished as the game’s top star.
For Williams, the win on Thursday was special. He began his career in Philadelphia, and his wife has many ties to the city. Williams didn’t see a ton of success as a Flyer, but he has fond memories of the franchise that welcomed him to the NHL. You can find rookie cards of Williams in 2000-01 Upper Deck Hockey products wearing his Flyers jersey. In 2000-01, Topps also held an NHL license, and you can find his rookie cards in a number of their hockey products as well.
Williams’ lengthy NHL career has seen him play for Philadelphia, Carolina, Los Angeles and Washington. He has three Stanley Cup championships under his belt, and he’s been a Game 7 stud. From 2015-2017, he played for the Washington Capitals. You’ll find him wearing his Capitals sweater in early 2017-18 Upper Deck Hockey products like Series 1 and O-Pee-Chee. He’ll appear in his Hurricanes sweater in later 2017-18 products like Series 2 and more.
