Flyers Talk: Return from Break, Flyers Win Two Straight
The Flyers are back from the All-Star break and returned with a pair of wins over the Florida Panthers and Winnipeg Jets.
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 the two games and the road ahead for the Flyers as the season progresses into February.
First, the Flyers overcame a slow start in Florida to pick up a 2-1 win. From depth scoring by Noah Cates to another solid goaltending performance from Sam Ersson, we further break down this game.
The Flyers followed up that performance with a dominant first period against the Jets en route a 4-1 win, but John Tortorella was hardly pleased with the performance despite the end result. We look at the reasoning behind this and what happens that led to the coach's reaction.
Ersson in particular is in the spotlight upon becoming the team's top netminder down the stretch. What should be closely watched in his performance down the stretch this season?
Finally, looking ahead to the next couple of games to finish up the three-game homestand, as the Flyers take on the Seattle Kraken and Arizona Coyotes. What do they need to do to continue their winning ways?
