The importance of coming back again and again after the cup-favored Penguins kept going up 2-0 shan't be ignored by the management nor the ownership of this team.
And frankly, it's ****** that's it's been so quickly forgotten by some of the more surly elements of the fanbase. But that's the internet for you.
It's how the coaching carousel works in the NHL these days. I don't want him to be fired, but when the Flyers miss the playoffs, heads are going to roll when Mount Snider erupts.
