Another Slow Start for Flyers
(Kate Frese/Sports Talk Philly)
We've heard this narrative before about how the Flyers have to avoid the slow start so they aren't trying to back into the playoffs as the season hits the crucial months of February, March and April and every game becomes virtually a must-win game.
If only the Flyers would actually listen themselves.
For the fourth straight game, the Flyers got off to a slow start in the first period. They recovered from it again with a small outburst of offense in the second period, but failed to capitalize on special teams chances when they had a chance to put the game out of reach.
Because of that, a 3-2 loss to the Ducks on Thursday night has them at 1-2-1 through four games and again looking at the potential of another dismal October.
