Giroux had a few good shifts, definitely more engaged than he has been in the first 5 games. Still, he needs to be better
Emery was awful. The first and fourth were Bryz-esque
The Schenns were solid. Brayden was the best Flyers IMO tonight. Won battles down low, was strong on the puck and had some great chemistry with Raffl and Simmonds.
Gus made the entire coaching staff look silly for not dressing him the first 5 games. There is zero reason for Mez to be back in the lineup barring any injuries.
Mez looked fantastic in the press box. Most comfortable hes looked all season.
Friday was an anomaly for Read. He was the best forward tonight outside of B Schenn.
Simmonds' was....better I'd say. The energy and passion has been there for Simmonds through the first 5 games. I guess tonight it just looked like it was actually doing some good for the team
Couturier had a rough game again in my opinion. He lacks acceleration which is killing any possible offensive production he may have in him. He also needs to hit the weight room because he gets knocked off pucks far too easily.
I honestly dont believe the score is truly indicative of the actual game. It's not even debatable that this was their best game of the year - they deserved to win. Too many chest snipes, not capitalizing on any scoring chances and Emery were the reasons they didn't come out with 2 points.
