    Why is Simmonds on the PK?

    While a bad play from Del Zotto started that. Simmonds didn't help. Most dangerous man is the man with the puck and he got caught in between. Bad 5 on 5 play from that line.

    Mason's save % going up every game.

    Typical afternoon game from the Flyers, no life, no sense of urgency. Almost a quarter of the schedule done. Looking more and more like a .500 team.

    Flyers mostly outplayed the Lightning today. Shot attempts, scoring chances, high danger chances. All the above. I thought the Couts line looked very good for the 2nd straight night and Ghost and Provy were very good among the D men. Del Zotto had a rough one. Poor positionally on the PP goal by TB and looked really bad on the 2nd goal.


    Vasilevskiy was very good. Period. He was just having one of those days, you weren't getting one by him today.


    It happens, but overall if the Flyers play like this most nights they will win more often than not.


    It's frustrating to not score, but it's not a reason to be upset. They played pretty well overall.

    VandeVelde was hurt in this game, sustained an upper body injury when he went head first into the dasher on the penalty to Coburn.

    No word on if he misses time, and you hate to see anyone get injured, but injuries can create opportunities. And this could be an opportunity for Lyubimov or maybe even Laughts (maybe call him up, send AMac down) to step in and prove to Hak that this team can be better without VandeVelde (specifically the PK since I think that's the main reason why Hakstol plays VandeVelde).

    still frustrating when we have outplayed played teams this year and have lost due to 1 or 2 mistakes, either by poor defense or just a bad goal. When it turns around hopefully we can get a win streak of 2+ games going.

    But they're at least on the right track. I would rather this team be playing the right way and losing tight games at this point in the season, than winning weird games where they are consistently getting outplayed and happen to be getting some bounces.


    They've been let down by their goaltending and lapses in coverage so far. Goaltending is improving; they were about 20 points below the 2nd to last team in the league in save percentage last week and they're now only about 1 point below that mark (goes to show how truly bad their goalies have been to date). Lapses are still there but not as frequent.


    They're getting better. Their PP is on a cold spell right now, that happens to every team. They're still 7th in the league in ES goals, 5th in CF%, they have the 11th best shooting % at even strength.


    It's coming around. Stay patient.

    ya its definiitely really encouraging that we are outplaying many teams. We just need to play smarter in our own zone. Our play definitely isn't a reflection of our position in the standings. We could have easily had a couple more points right now.
