Can't rush to judgments after one game, orpik looked rusty to me, as did a number of players did, he didn't play during the lockout, it'll take afew weeks for the d to get cohesive, and who is trading FOR orpik, right now????.... No one, let's trade our only physicality from our soft defense already....get idea!!!! Ugh
Watch that play closely again. The Flyers do this every dang shift and it drives me crazy. They get an extra hit or interference on the lowest man down on the ice to trap him behind the play. It's blatant interference and it happened all the time in last years playoffs.
Also, just like last years playoffs, the Pens are dominating the Flyers (were outshooting them 11-3 at one point) in the first period and yet only draw one penalty. Flyers meanwhile are hanging on for dear life and somehow manage to draw 3 penalties.
