FLYERS: Quote – Not Winning the Right Way

“There’s winning, and there’s winning in spite of how you play.”

– Chris Pronger, to reporters after Tuesday’s 4-1 win against Edmonton.

…The Flyers came to play in the first period, outshooting Edmonton 17-1 and taking a 2-0 lead into the break. Where did that energy go in the second and third periods? Sure, the Flyers got the victory, but they didn’t play 60 minutes in the process. They’ll continue to face desperate teams in the coming weeks, who all have been playing a full 60 mins just about every night. It’s a habit the Flyers MUST get into sooner rather than later, and I’m happy Pronger is voicing his concerns over it. He’s a big part of the leadership on this team, and they need to know when something is not working properly.

In the end however, you take the two points and move on. They need a full game’s effort against Toronto Thursday, just to show themselves they can play an entire hockey game at their level.
