Flyers Need To Think Defense First

from Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer,

In the first three-plus weeks of the season, the Flyers have been mostly about glitter (see their NHL-leading 3.91 goals per game) and little about substance (see their sad-sack 3.64 goals-against average).

That has to change, coach John Stevens said after yesterday’s practice at the Skate Zone in Voorhees, Camden County.

“We’re almost thinking the game offensively first, and that’s a trap any team falls into at certain points of the season - and it’s one we have to learn from,” Stevens said.

“We’re almost cheating on the offensive side of the puck too many times, and it catches us,” he said.
