Several Flyers said their brawl in a blowout loss against Washington on Friday has unified the team and served as a much-needed spark and rallying cry. The Flyers received lots of negative national coverage for the four simultaneously fights - one in which Ray Emery pummeled the opposing goalie, Washington's Braden Holtby, who didn't want to participate. The fights occurred eight seconds after visiting Washington took a 7-0 third-period lead. Left winger Scott Hartnell said the team "fed off" the brawl and it carried into Saturday's 1-0 win in New Jersey, a game in which the Flyers (4-9) allowed just 14 shots and had no turnovers. "Obviously, fighting is part of the game. It's been a while since you see three or four fights in one stoppage and a goalie going down and attacking another team's goalie," Hartnell said after Monday's practice in Voorhees. "People are all over Razor [Emery] for doing that.
