Flyers Talk: Overtime Games, Benchings, Battle of PA, and More
With hopes of rivalries being renewed, the Flyers played three more games in the past week against divisional opponents. After falling to the New Jersey Devils in overtime, they responded with back-to-back wins in a home-and-home against the Pittsburgh Penguins.
On this week's episode of Flyers Talk with 97.3 ESPN Flyers Insider Kevin Durso, Brianna Barretta and Kevin sit down to talk about all the action.
An eventful game against the Devils featured the benching of Joel Farabee and a controversial game misconduct call on Garnet Hathaway. Was the benching justified for John Tortorella and what's Kevin's take on the hit by Hathaway on Luke Hughes?
One consistency of the Flyers has been the play of their goaltenders. How have Carter Hart and Sam Ersson been driving the Flyers' success, and can it be sustained in the future?
Tyson Foerster started to heat up with four goals in his last three games. After several weeks of not scoring, but regularly being praised for doing all the little things properly, the offensive production is coming in a big way. Can Foerster be a mainstay of the lineup on the top liine?
Next up, the Flyers hit the road to face the Arizona Coyotes in their next game. Arizona is on a hot streak of their own. What can we expect from the game between these two teams?
Finally, we close things out with some talk from around the NHL, as the three Hughes brothers faced off for the first time in the NHL on Tuesday night.
