Drive and heart are immaterial when every night you are outgunned.

Injuries have the Flyers outgunned.

Wednesday night remove Gomez and Gionta and insert Gagne. Who wins?

Thursday night remove Jagr and Prucha and insert Gagne and Handzus. Who wins?

Last night remove Blake and insert Gagne. Who wins?

Once in a while you win a game by sweat of your brow despite having inferior players but by and large you don't. I agree that the Flyers SHOULD be stealing games via grit and goaltending every now and again on this bad streak, but typically, he who has the best players wins, irrespective of drive and heart.
