Panthers rough up flat Flyers - Sam Carchidi,
Easy prey: Panthers all over Flyers in 4-1 win - Tim Panaccio,
Powerless: In physical game, power play fails Flyers - Bill Clement,
Boucher hurt as Flyers lose again - Travis Hughes,
You solve the Flyers offense - Chris Shafer,

I think Sam Carchidi sums it up best...
Once upon a time, opponents used to fear facing the Flyers in South Philadelphia.
Not anymore.
They don't push teams around with any physicality. They don't score many goals. They don't win the special-teams battles.
Other than that, they look like Stanley Cup contenders.

Don't look now but the Flyers are the next to worst team in the Easter Conference. Scratch that. they are the next to worst team in the entire NHL. When will the organization realize that it is not the coach but the players?

But hey, at least they brought their fighting gloves last night, right?
