Flyers Point Streak Ends

Sunday, November 30, 2008 ·

The Flyers traveled to Toronto coming off an over-time loss to Carolina. Still, the Flyers were able continue a streak of registering at least 1 point to 9 games. That streak came to an end last night. Toronto's 4-2 win gave them a 10-3 record against the Flyers since the lock-out.

The Flyers looked sloppy defensively and they were often giving the puck away to the neutral zone. Every goal that Toronto scored came off a Flyers turnover or Biron finding himself way outside of the net.

Biron, who did make some good saves was a little off of his game and probably should not have been playing after being injured last night. I understand that you want to maybe put him back out there to test him out, but you did come off a loss and you do want to make sure that your best possible lineup out there. Niittymaki was rested and very well could have played nicely. Biron's mistakes lead to 3 goals by Toronto including one where he tried to clear the puck, but he put it off a Toronto player into the net.

After the first period, the Flyers just lacked complete energy. They had some opportunities, but they looked to slow to really have them develop in to anything. Mike Richards was able to jam home two goals for the Flyers, giving him 8 on the season. One of his goals was another short-handed beauty. Gagne added an assist to give him 31 points on the year, third in the league.

The Flyers will host Tampa on Tuesday and they're another team that gives the Flyers problems. Stop playing down to damn competition!

A small introduction...

We Hate to Lose began in October 2007. The initial purpose of the website was to provide news updates and commentary on all four major sports teams in Philadelphia. Because of time-constraints, in April of 2009, I decided to post only on my first-love, the Philadelphia Phillies.

My name is Justin Evans and I hope you enjoy the site.
