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.

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Flyers goalie Ray Emery made national headlines when he skated the length of the ice to attack and pummel unwilling Capitals goalie Braden Holtby in Washington's 7-0 win in Philadelphia on Friday, setting off a melee.

Everyone is still talking about the Ray Emery - Braden Holtby "fight" which occurred during a massive brawl between the Flyers and Capitals. It'd be easy to rank that incident as the best from last week due to the sheer spectacle of it all, but we've opted to go in a different direction. Which fight leads the way? Read on to find out. 5.

Last week’s goalie fight between the Flyers’ Ray Emery and the Capitals’ Braden Holtby has generated plenty of discussion and debate among the hockey community.
Emery left his zone and skated past center ice during a line brawl between the two teams during Friday’s game in Philadelphia, then proceeded to fight the Washington goalie even though the 24-year-old didn’t want...
Hearing John Walton call the Ray Emery assault on Braden Holtby on Friday was the hockey equivalent to listening to Herbert Morrison call the Hindenburg disaster.
Apparently, after Philadelphia Flyer's goalie Ray Emery fought Washington Capital’s goalie Braden Holtby last Friday night in Philadelphia, goalies fights could now be a thing of the past. You have got to be kidding me?!? This is what happens when we have an incident and then we have an over reaction. So, when Patrick Roy fought Chris Osgood, no one seemed to care.
Brendan Shanahan was on Sportsnet's Hockey Central at Noon and one of the topics discussed was the Ray Emery fight.
It’s always sunny in Philadelphia.
Even though the Philadelphia Flyers are second to last in the Eastern Conference and tied for second to last in the entire league, things are somehow looking up for the Broad Street Bullies after their 7-0 mugging at the hands of the Washington Capitals, which featured a third period line brawl and a Ray Emery-Braden Holtby goalie fight so one...
