Speaking of Lavy's ways...not sure how this will work out. Taking care of the puck means controlling it and winning faceoffs..right? Well since they haven't done very well most of the season and we haven't been good for a few years now....it will be interesting to see if Tampa controls the puck more by winning faceoffs and if our positional play without the puck isn't erratic....if Prongs plays that should settle things down though. However, Coburn, Carle and Mesz will have to be better with the puck too..and not treat it like a grenade.
Peter Laviolette said that a lot of the discussion heading into Tampa has focused on decision-making with the puck, putting it into safe areas when there is not a play to be made. He said that although he was happy with the Flyers' offensive output in most of their games against Tampa last year, they need to take better care of the puck to prevent Tampa's skill players from running wild the way they did last season.
