During the coronavirus pandemic, flyers are powerless in Boston outside of hockey.
Considering the results, they will certainly not miss Beantown.
Alain Vigneault’s club was defeated 6-1 by the Bruins at TD Garden on Saturday night, when Boston played two games with Flyers.
The pilots scored five goals in two games. The Bears scored seven points in the third period alone.
Before this aimless trip, the Ferris Wheel (3-2-1) had no consecutive losses in 30 consecutive regular season games. The last time they lost the regular season twice in a row was on December 31. At 7 o’clock last year, they dropped 4 consecutively.
The Flyers exploded. There was no Selke Trophy champion Sean Couturier for the 201
Carter Hart rarely showed his frustration. He made multiple heavy blows on the NBC Sports Philadelphia radio show and broke his bat after the final corner on Saturday night.
• The flyer is similar to a completely different team that performed well in the 2019-20 regular season.
Should that be worrying? Yes. Do they allow terrible shots? Yes.
But the sky did not fall. They are 3-2-1, and some of Vigneault’s best teams didn’t solve the problem right away, including last season. Reminder: Flyers started 2-3-1 last season and were at most average during the opening month. The flyer was not really clicked until January.
The season started late, a battle that shortened 56 games, but the Delaware Valley shouldn’t press the panic button yet.
• Beyond the opposition does not mean all, But when you win all the games in the first six games of the season, things are not good.
This is what happened to the aviators, where the four shot differences appeared in double digits.
They entered Saturday night, giving the NHL the second highest field goal percentage per game (37.4), and were eliminated in six games by a 213-142 advantage.
• The real breakthrough goal of the Flyers was 4:13 in the third quarter, when Erik Gustafsson was completely exposed in the defensive zone.
The offseason acquisition was sloppy and underperformed on loose hockey. Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand paid him a salary to extend Boston’s lead to 4-1, which is almost a game.
After performing well in the opener, the offensive Gustafson had only 1 assist, 5 shots, and struggled on the defensive end. If he is not good at offense, then he must do better defensively.
• This is the first time in Hart’s career that three consecutive starts have allowed four or more goals. The 22-year-old has allowed 14 times in the start of his current three games.
The flyers behaved badly in front of him. He can also get better, but the pilot is systematically in chaos.
Hart may be the least concerned thing on the Ferris wheel.
Jaroslav Halak can only win 16 saves.
• When the 28-year-old center scored a goal, the Flyers suffered their first regulatory loss during Kevin Hayes’ tenure.
Now, in the game where Hayes lights up the game, they are 24-1-1, including the regular season and playoffs.
• In these two games, the Bruins did not have David Pastrnak (hips), which is no big deal.
The other two Boston stars, Bergeron and Marchand, separated the flyers on Saturday night. Each of them has two goals and three points.
• Oskar Lindblom (Oskar Lindblom) asked the NHL if he can wear a cancer ribbon sticker on his helmet for the rest of the season, so the league approved his request.
The 24-year-old winger was diagnosed with Ewing’s sarcoma in December 2019 and completed radiation therapy in July 2020.
• The aviators are closed on Sunday, practice in Voorhees, New Jersey on Monday, and then head to Newark, New Jersey to compete with the devil on Tuesday (7pm EST/NBCSP) and Thursday (7pm EST/NBCSP) .
