More annoyed after tonight than any other game this year. 5-on-5 they looked like the better team. Hopefully it's a sign that they're turning things around and also that the new guys in the lineup can contribute over a full season.
Lost because we got dominated at special teams and face-offs.
As far as my other comments. Gustafsson, McGinn, and Raffl's play just goes to show how retarded our management/coaching is/was since we've been saying since the beginning to call them up. Or at least I have.
I also see the team is doing it's best to maintain it's absolutely ridiculous 21 PIM per game average.
Forwards all looked pretty good but specifically Schenn, Simmer, Raffle and McGinn. Schenn in particular was beasting it and lead the team with 7 shots. D overall was good today too, specifically Gus. A couple bad shifts for the Coburn and Gross combo but that's it. Kimmo passing up that wide open shot is completely mind boggling. Emery was pretty bad bad.
Overall I thought the Flyers played their best game of the season and deserved better (at least a point).
I don't see how they can justify keeping Timonen on the first PP unit. Something obviously needs to change and after that abomination of a play in a one goal game, it should be him. Switch him with Streit or put Read there.
Refs were bad, but realistically more PP chances wasn't going to do anything for this team.
Schenn again the lowest toi on the ice. JVR 2 more goals......how bad is this trade looking.
In his defense, he hasn't played bad. He had a slow start last season, hopefully it's just a matter of time until he turns it up again. He and Gus were great together at the end of last season, I would like to see them reunited and Schenn given more ice time.
