BLOG: Re-Focused Flyers
By: Lesley Van Arsdall
The Flyers endured a tough four-game losing streak last week, but after rebounding to win two straight, they seem to coming out of their fog. Still, you have to wonder, what’s going on with the team?
They were losing to teams fighting to make it into the playoffs. Now, heading into April, these are the games that are going to count. If you look at this team on paper they should be playing better, of course games aren’t played on paper.
Have the Flyers become complacent? The expectations going into the season were so high after last year’s Stanley Cup appearance that their position in the Eastern Conference standings is coming as no surprise.
What about the goal tending? Who will start in the playoffs? It seems there is a difference in opinion as to who should be starting, and according to sources the rift exists in the locker room as well.
Still, they seem to be refocused and ready to attack the playoffs in form. Bring on the cup.
