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.
I agree with this, they actually played pretty decent. There weren't defensive breakdowns, failed clears, failure to move the puck up. The problem was finish, and that alone.
Now granted, Toronto seemed to have been gassed so the real test will come on Saturday against another 0-1 team. It'll be easier to gauge then.
