The Flyers lack of defense yielded just 3 more shots on goal in the 2nd, 3rd, and Overtime than it did in the 1st period. Likewise in Game 1 when they gave up 11 shots after the 1st period after giving up 15 in the 1st. In Game 3, 3 of the 4 goals had nothing to do with a lack of defense: Elias PP goal, Parise was a turnover behind the net, Ponikarovsky was a bad line change. Kovalchuk was the only one where they completely blew the defensive coverage.
Guess what happens when you trade away your two best defensive forwards and let the third go on waivers.
