I understand your point, but completely disagree with it.

The schedule was published long time ago, and it's a job of FO and coaching staff to design strategic approach to the "back to backs" as well as individual game plans. May be it's not a good plan to try to play "run-and- gun" game at the tail end of a back-to-back against the team that is fresher and ready to trap. And may be they need to evaluate personnel in this situations and put some previously scratched people on ice.

Also, I am not a hockey player, but today is my fifth "back-to- back" this week, and I do not think my employer would tolerate if I suck at what I need to do.

It seems that he can never win with this crowd: he is either "too out to space" or "too emotional".

Agreed. Bryz is not the problem and hasn't been the entire season.

Two games Stanley, one game Seth. It is depressing, as an end result, that they won't seem to be consistent on either end of the win-loss spectrum. But I can swallow the loss to the Panthers a lot better with the memories of fighting out a momentously entertaining win against the Penguins the night before, rather than game after game akin to TSTSNBN.

The guy faced liked 3 breakaways in a row, I'd be pissed too.

They were playing their 5th game in 5 different cities in 7 days against a team that had been off since Monday. Not to mention coming off a 60 minute war with Pittsburgh, fatigue happens and there's not much you can do about it especially dealing with the injuries they have.

A back-to-back can't be an excuse for a loss.

The Flyers play 10 back-to-backs this season, which is tied for 4th most (Chicago & Detroit play 12 each and Columbus plays 11), but most teams play 8 or 9. There isn't a serious disadvantage to the Flyers, so they need to figure out a way to play 120 minutes of good hockey over two days.

I dont care how much money he makes. He lost his cool and composure. He looked like a fool doing that. This has nothing to do with setting an example for kids. Its not looking like a stupid jackass acting like that.
It was still the first period, its not like that was the GWG goal in the shootout. He should not be doing that.

This loss was definitely disappointing and prior to the start of the game I was absolutely sure we'd win this one. Heck, even after the first period I believed in a comeback and that's the first time this season that's happened. So while it sucks to lose a game like that, we weren't really bad and created a lot of chances that just didn't go in. Not a lot of them were exactly prime scoring chances, but some were, and I think it's easier to correct for those mistakes that led to Florida goals last night than it would be if our game totally blew.

I have to say I really like that kid line Florida has, especially Shore and Mueller.

Oh, and poor Grossmann. Even for a big guy like him, he was clearly way out of his league sparring with Parros, and he got lucky there at the end that the bout ended when it did. He was holding out for dear life there, and things were looking to become way worse for him than just that trickle of blood he let out.

I am just asking for him to keep his composure. this isnt about winning anyone over. if he wants to freak out like that he can throw all his equipment at the end of the game. Not with 50 minutes left in the game.

Goalie is a head game. I personally play best when I'm quietly pissed off but focused. Other guys "zone" might just be when they're waving their arms around and acting like knuckleheads. Bryz is a weird dude, after all.

He needs to stay focused and not act like a child when he gets beaten like that.
Why? Why does he have to produce and act according to your standards? Why is it not enough he does his job?
