Isaac: Nothing Comes Easily For Flyers
As the Flyers return home tonight the Winnipeg Jets the loss to the lowly Coyotes hangs over their heads from the weekend.
Flyers Insider Dave Isaac says this is because everybody is playing hard this time of year in the NHL:
"You seen the way they played this season, nothing comes easily to them. Except for maybe playing the against some of the top teams. For whatever reason they really come to play when the big boys are in town or they are visiting their barns. But for whatever reason the Flyers seem to have a little bit of trouble with some of the teams beneath them in the standings. They thought they had remedied that situation...it still gives them trouble. At this time of year everybody's playing hard as your trying to play spoiler or your jockying for position in the playoffs. None of them are gimmies but the Flyers do have Toronto on their Schedule, the Flyers do have a Detroit team that seems pretty fragile on their schedule...."
Hear what Isaac had to say about if Anthony Stolarz will get playing time before the end of the season, Claude Giroux's health, and the impact of Coach Dave Hakstol on this team
