In all my years of watching Flyers teams I never remember a bunch of guys who did not come to play every night.

I can take the losses, just don't come out and play for 20 minutes and then say that it just was not the night, that the ref made some poor calls or the goalie got hot. Good teams overcome that.
Agreed, Columbus got away with quite a bit in their own end. In all seriousness the powerplay has been terrible, so I'm not sure why they think that is an excuse. It boils down to effort and discipline. They didn't get pucks in deep and they took stupid penalties. That kind of effort isn't going to get you very far in the standings.
