Updates: Hartnell Monster Coming to Fruition in Final

I’ve been one of Scott Hartnell’s toughest critics this entire season, but like Mike Richards, the man with the out-of-control orange hair has begun to win me over.

Hartnell has become more valuable to the Flyers as the postseason has wore on

  In the Stanley Cup Final, Hartnell has lived up to his nickname that was coined by CSNPhilly.com writer Tim Panaccio, “The Hartnell Monster”.  He’s been physical in the offensive end, has cycled at will against the Chicago defense and has even scored a couple of gigantic goals for the Flyers in this series.  Now, some media members in Canada are starting to take notice.

TSN has a great article up about how Hartnell has elevated his game as both a skill player and an agitator with the Cup on the line.  Hartnell, who became known more for his hair and yeti-like look this year moreso than his on-ice productivity, suddenly is a key player if the Flyers are to make any more noise in this series going forward.
