The only team problem I saw last night was a lack of finish. There were individuals who looked poor, but that was as strong a team game as you'll see from the Flyers this year. Bury chances, win the game; fail to capitalize on chances, easy loss.
They controlled play in the first period. Then as the game went on the Leafs shut the Flyers down more and more, and the Flyers had no answers. Looked like more of the same to me.
