After his team's latest victory, Flyers coach Craig Berube sounded like his predecessor, Peter Laviolette. "I really liked our skating legs tonight, especially in the third period. We had a lot of jam left out there," Berube said after the Flyers' 5-2 win over the New York Islanders at the Nassau Coliseum on Saturday. The victory gave the Flyers (3-7) a modest two-game winning streak. They will try to win their third straight - something they didn't accomplish until April in last year's abbreviated season - when they host Anaheim on Tuesday. In their last two games, the Flyers have outscored their opponents in the third period. Before that, they had been outscored, 12-2, in the final period, which was the main reason they started 1-7. In Saturday's win, Vinny Lecavalier had his seventh career hat trick as the Flyers played their best all-around game of the young season. They got strong goaltending from Steve Mason (again), played well at both ends, won the special-teams battle (1-0), and were hard on the puck for a full 60 minutes. In short, they seem to be adapting to Berube's system. "They played a solid game without the puck," said Berube, whose team is 2-4 since he replaced Laviolette. "When you do that, you can still score a goal. It's not just sitting back and playing defense. It's playing good without the puck to create turnovers. You still play in the offensive zone. We got rewarded for it. We shot the puck. We were at the net." "We were just sloppy in our own end," Islanders captain John Tavares said. The Flyers made the Isles look sloppy with a strong forecheck as they improved their record to 3-7, five points behind the third-place Islanders in the ragged Metropolitan Division. "We have to build on this," said winger Jake Voracek, who scored his first goal of the season. Team Techno The Flyers are using an indoor GPS tracking system on their players to evaluate some of their physical ability. At practices, tiny devices are placed inside their jerseys to track their movements. The tracking devices can also monitor progress on injuries, fatigue and acceleration.
