After that we got better, though we were cheating a lot when we still were down (understandable). Brière drives me insane though, did you see how he just stopped skating once he reached the defensive blue line? Giroux still has some troubles finding his guy in the defensive zone as well.
Briere was awful defensively, including in the overtime when you need to get your **** together.

The Flyers only allowed 6 shots in the first and were only hemmed in their own zone once (that I can remember).

A lot of the miscommunication will come from the two new guys on D. I was pretty happy with the team's performance in their own zone, aside from a couple bonehead plays (the short-handed goal, especially).
