I said it before, I'll say it again:

It's not THE reason the Flyers are losing this series, but it's very frustrating to watch them not hit anybody. I'm convinced that they're happy to have a series without physicality in it after how physical the series with Pittsburgh was.

But they're letting the Devils get away without being hit. Ever. And the Flyers are at their best when they're crushing the first defender and establishing a forecheck. Or when they're knocking guys down in the defensive zone.

I've watched more players let up on checking someone in this series than I have have before. You hit and you're engaged. You're engaged and you skate. You skate and you win.

They're just standing around and I think a lot of that can be changed with some physicality. Some after the whistle stuff. Some emotion.
