One minute and seventeen seconds. Twenty-nine seconds.
The former? The length of a two-man advantage for the Philadelphia Flyers in Tuesday night’s contest against the rival New York Rangers, which generated only two shots on net and no goals.
The latter? The amount of time it took the Rangers to capitalize on their one-man advantage only minutes later, extending their lead to two goals, a lead that they would never fully relinquish.
A punchless power play and ineffective penalty kill have been the key reasons for Philadelphia’s disappointing start to the 2013 NHL season. After seven games, the Flyers are 5/35 (14.2%) with the man advantage, which would have placed them 28th in the league during the 2011-12 season.
But their ineptitude while a man up has been dwarfed by their struggles while a man down. So far this season, Philadelphia has killed only 21 of 31 penalties, for a horrific 67.7% PK percentage. ...

The Philadelphia Flyers have never been an organization known for its patience with losing. The historical tendency when the team gets off to a very slow start has been to make major changes; whether it is a significant trade and/or a coaching change.
In the wake of last night's frustrating 2-1 loss in New York and 2-5-0 start to the 48-game regular season, there seem to...
It's not like Peter Laviolette or even his player to use excuses for losing.
You can come up with a couple of easy reasons why the FLyers were going to lose in Tampa Bay, starting with back to back games and finishing with 6 games in 9 days.
Or how about ... the Lightning right now is a better team? Period.
What is starting to bother me, however, is that the players...

If you watched the game, you know the Flyers lost this game. The Rangers played a strong game, but they certainly didn't win the game, we lost it. The Flyers again were unable to capitalize on their power plays, and they get the loss.

The Rangers fought their way to a well earned 2-1 win over the Philadelphia Flyers at the Garden tonight, but the win unfortunately was overshadowed by the loss of Ryan Callahan, who succumbed to a shoulder injury early in the third period.
Callahan and Flyers forward Max Talbot were involved in an altercation to the left of Bryzgalov...
“We better damn get our special teams straightened out or we’re in trouble. That’s what it’s all about in today’s game _-special teams - because 5 on 5, it’s hard as hell to score nowadays.”

The Flyers have had some bad powerplay numbers in my lifetime, most of them were due to the fact that they simply do not shoot the puck. Since I began watching Flyers hockey, the team has always passed the puck around for almost the entire time, and then force shots as it expires. SHOOT THE PUCK!
Flyers fell to the Rangers on Tuesday night 2-1, why...
