Too many big wins in a row. This group seems to take nights off after stretches of success.
The Panthers are hard working (not very skilled) and have a solid team defense with a great goalie.

They'll give any team a fit that shows up unwilling to play.

I have no idea why, the Panthers always seem to play the Flyers tough. If the Panthers played this way every game, they wouldn't be down near the bottom. And if the Flyers played this way every game, they wouldn't be at the top. But why it's pretty much every single time they play is beyond me.

I'm not sorry I missed this period.

There was just a short fight in the Boston game. My apartment smells like Christmas tree. That's all I've got, I think I might refuse to discuss this game for my own sanity.

Thats the biggest problem. They over look teams or don't show up, but apparently some here don't agree.

Flyers see a big break coming up and havn't brought their game tonight. Shame on them. They always seem to do it at home too.

I would include Tampa as well. The Florida teams seem to kill us or play us extremely tough. This game should be reversed.

We're lucky that Panthers aren't a playoff team. We'd never win a series against them.

Perhaps they're just saving all their energy for tomorrow's skills competition?

I do hope that this is not a glimpse of our Pronger-less near future.

I doubt people would ***** much about a 3-2 loss.

A blowout from a mediocre team on home ice? A different story.

This is clearly Pronger's fault. He said to the team before the game there's this Rodu guy in Winnipeg, having a really bad day, lets make it worse

I don't know about that -- it was a perfect pass to a player who was allowed to breeze into the zone and get a good shot off. I'd put the D more at fault on that one.

I am not happy. Not a single Flyers fan is but a loss is a loss. Blow out or losing 8:7 or 3:2. In the end of teh day it makes no difference.

Adjustments will be made.

So really only Bob's fault on one of them. From what I have seen of the game, Bob has gotten no help in front of his crease.

It's a complete fiasco. No one looks good. No PECOs is indicative that the forwards have been lackluster. However, as Therien pointed out, management is looking for a reason to put Leighton back into the lineup and this gives them justification.

This is what irks me the most. This game will end up hurting the team even more because it means we'll see Leighton attempt to adapt to the NHL after a long break and an injury. I'd rather eat a bowl of rocks.
