I dont get to watch that many other NHL games but it does seem like games with the Flyers are more penalty filled affairs than others, including the opposition
Well, according to nhl.com, we've had the most PP opportunities of any team (interestingly, we get 4.84 penalties at home, 4.11 on the road). We also have 121 minors, 145 total penalties, and 112 times shorthanded. The next closest team with minors is Anaheim with 103, shorthanded 97 times.
So we take about one more penalty/game than most teams.
Teams (not including us) are averaging about 4 times shorthanded/game. We average 4.55 PP opportunities/game, so I guess games that we play in are more penalty-filled affairs.
