I disagree there. For most of the year the Flyers have had very good goaltening. It was poor for about 2-3 week stretch, when esche got hurt. Hackett went from very good to very bad in a hurry.

The Flyers did not win the games Hackett was bad. the Flyers have had very few nights when their goalie has stolen them points, but other than they small stretch of games our goalie hasn't cost us any points either.

It is difficlut to impossible to win in todays NHL with bad goaltending
