With all the attention focused to the status of Chris Pronger, lost on many last night was the solid effort of the Flyers following two consecutive losses. Matt Brigidi takes a look at the positive parts of Monday night's win.
On Sunday October, 23, the Trenton Titans, ECHL affiliate of the Philadelphia Flyers hosted the Cincinnati Cyclones at Sun National Bank Center in Trenton.
Both teams had some quality scoring chances in the first period, with ten shots apiece. An early goal by Joe Devin and some great saves by goalie Chet Pickard of the Cyclones sent the Titans into the first intermission trailing, 1-0.
The Philadelphia Flyers look to get out of their current funk when they take on the Toronto Maple Leafs at the Wells Fargo Center at 7:00 pm EST. You can see the game on CSN-PH in Philly and on Leafs TV in Toronto.
The overwhelmingly popular opinion right now is that Scott Hartnell should be axed. Fans, reporters, etc. are tired of watching him struggle and just want him off this Flyers team. It is impossible to say that that opinion is not warranted, but there are some reasons to slow down with the hostility for number nineteen in orange.
