Oh by the way. Did anyone else see the Flyers playing a 1-3-1 tonight? Cause I sure as hell did. Im tempted to stay up to watch the replay on Sun Sports just to capture the image of it and stir the pot on the main boards
Was waiting today for this. Was disappointed

I got sidetracked. I did dvr it ill try to do it tomorrow
Anyone have the link to the YouTube video of lavioletye criticizing the 1-3-1 etc?
Yeah, I couldn't find a vid of Lavi saying much about it, but heres this:
Flyers defenseman Chris Pronger, by contrast, gave voice to plenty of frustration. He was especially critical of Tampa Bay's sit-back-and wait, clog-the-neutral-zone style of play.
"That's not hockey in my book," Pronger said. "But whatever, the League's letting them do it. Would you pay money to watch that? I wouldn't either. That was a TV game, too. Way to showcase the product. Look at the players they've got over there."
Pronger, returning after missing six games with an eye injury, logged over 25 minutes of ice time while taking one shot and picking up two penalties.
Philadelphia coach Peter Laviolette defended the tactic his team used.
"They have a set forecheck in the neutral zone, so we have a set breakout,” he said. “As soon as we get some pressure, we'll get into our outs. If they don't want us to stand there, they should come after us. Why are they going to just stand there?"
