Jim Dowd: The Pride of Brick, NJ! October 19, 2007

Posted by Brian in Jim Dowd, Philadelphia, Philadelphia Flyers, sports.

Fellow Brick Township High School alumnus, Jim Dowd (#34 in photo), scored his first goal as a member of the Philadelphia Flyers last night against his two-time former team, the New Jersey Devils. Dowd redirected a shot from the point past Devils goalie Martin Brodeur at 10:49 of the second period in the Flyers’ 4-0 victory.

It’s so nice to see Dowd, a 16-year NHL veteran, playing for the Flyers. I know the whole “Jersey Boy Playing with the Jersey Team” story was nice for the media and all…but it was really hard for me to root for my fellow BTHS Dragon as a member of the hated Devils.
