Penguins pound Flyers in Pittsburgh - Sam Carchidi, Philly.com
Fight Club: Flyers drop battle with Penguins - Tim Pannacio, CSNPhilly.com
So much for feeling good about the team again. A night after the Flyers stole a win in Boston the team came out flat in Pittsburgh. Along the way to another loss to the in-state rivals the Penguins demonstrated what a real hockey team does.
Sure there were fights but when push came to shove the Penguins got the last laugh in a 6-1 blow out of the Flyers. New coach, same lousy attitude on the ice. Something needs to be done to shake up the team. Strip Richards of the "C". Make a big trade. Something, any thing to get the team back in gear and on the right track.
The loss sends the Flyers below .500 at 15-16. To add salt to the wound, the win puts the Penguins in sole possession of first place, breaking a tie with the New Jersey Devils.
