Interesting. I'm sure it's somewhere on the web. I'll try to find it.

In the meantime I'll say this, the Flyers PK still failed last night. Your Emerick quote claims that the average PK gives up a goal every 2:03 when 5-3. The Flyers allowed one in under 90 seconds. Had they managed to live up to the league average, the "bogus" 5-3 would have been killed, and that would have been that. So don't tell me that the officiating was the problem not the Flyers PK.

So you're saying that in these 16 games, the Flyers had Forsberg, Gagne, Pitkanen and Desjardins and they scored at a 22% clip?
