Tuesday Tactical Tidings: Giroux and Voracek Lead Flyers Potent Power Play

After looking at the penalty kill last week, I wanted to flip that and look at the positive aspect of the Philadelphia Flyers’ special teams: the power play. The Flyers power play has been great as of late, not only this season but in past seasons as well. However, the departure of Scott Hartnell and injury to Kimmo Timonen left question marks for 2 of the 5 positions on the...
