That is terribly wrong. Philly dominated nothing 5 on 5. Our PK numbers and Fleury's save percentage explain EVERYTHING about that series loss.

Flyers did however put our D into difficulty enough times to have it be a contributing factor, because our defenders coughed up the puck too easily when put under pressure. More than anything that was a consequence of being soff - ie. our defensive group was on the whole too small and non-physical, and once the Flyers chipped it behind the D and had guys like Hartnell, Simmonds, Talbot, Read and others chase.. we couldn't deal. That part we can take care of this season - if we make it a priority to play the guys we have with size and snarl along the vets. Still to be seen if we will though.
