Fleury played 1 good game and 5 crappy ones. I guess thats good enough for the lot of you.
IMO the only guy on the team who performed beyond expectations was Jordan Staal. Its ironic hes the guy who might not be with the team in the fall too. Malkin has been horrible. Hes got the worst case of tunnel vision i've every seen. Sid just doesn't care any more. Hes not invested in this. Fleury - enough said. I'd put this game on him based on those awful two goals.
If you're going to go out, atleast go out with some dignity instead of not caring. Pens need to play that 3rd period like their LIFE is on the line. Atleast even if you lose, you can say you tried. Fleury? wow....talk about mental issues galore. HAS to be the worst goalie mentally in the league, it's hilarious!
How much of MAF's issues do people think are due to workload? The guy played a ton and seemed to be wearing down towards the stretch.
Yeah, I think that definitely had something to do with it. The fact that Johnson sucked buttcrack meant Fleury had to play way too much. I think Shero should look into getting a backup that can play a handful of games, a guy like Josh Harding
Its hard to believe that a team full of rookies wants it more than our team who is finally healthy for the first time in a long time. I really hope they show some heart in the third and im not talking about dirty/frustrated play like we saw in the first few games..
boy, i don't see any team stopping the flyers after they beat us. i see a nashville- philly finals
Really? I thought the opposite. They create match up problems for us. Our D isn't good enough and right now we are on the leagues ***** list so it's PC to call all the penalties they want on us. I don't think they beat the Ranger or Bruins if either of those teams advance. Our goalie isn't playing lights out like Thomas, Lunguist or even Holtby and a lot of that has to do with the support they get on d. We also aren't strong enough to crash the net and score dirty goals, really haven't been all season. The Bruins are getting beat by a hot goaltender right now but the style they play will destroy Philly in my opinion.
Absolutely. They're a really good team and we are too except we seriously lack guts. Surprising but true. This team does not want it enough this year, period.
just check when they work on the walls, I wish I could go back and check individual battles for the puck, but I would bet Flyers win 80%, they just hustle more,
Malkin gets a puck wind around has 4 guys on him, that means our 3 guys should be open but no they hide they don't get open no movement, I guess its all on players, no coaching here
If you re-watch that Briere goal the defense played that perfectly. Fleury was surrounded by white jerseys and no Flyers player had a chance of getting their stick on that puck. All he's gotta do is find it and freeze it, and he didn't.
