Anybody concerned about the big picture?

You definitely have a point. Giving up the starts they have and the goals they have is a disappointment.
But I think you need to look at them in the context of the games played. Both games the Flyers fell behind early, and had to play catch-up. That leads to a wide open system where you score a bunch of goals and give up a bunch of goals. I think their system would be tighter if they didn't keep falling behind early.
I think the most encouraging things are the balanced scoring we're getting and the team skating. When the whole team is skating hard, you're winning playoff games, and I think this team has the youth and athleticism to out-skate other teams.
I also feel confident that sooner or later, we're going to see the Bryz that we saw in March, and we're going to win a game 3-1 or 2-0. Maybe not against the Pens though... matching their style is causing crazy high scoring games.
