The Flyers Continue To Struggle Defensively & In the Net

I have watched back-to-back games that were complete and total crap.  I’m not going to sit here and tell you that I expect the Philadelphia Flyers to come out and win every game, that would be unreasonable and insane.  At this point, I’d settle for some consistency.  So far, this team has been anything BUT consistent.  There have been flashes of the good stuff that we,...
