Sloppy Play In Philadelphia’s Win Over Pittsburgh

from Seth Rorabaugh of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review,

Observations from the Penguins’ 6-3 loss to the Flyers:

This contest was not the best display of hockey. Sure, it was entertaining, particularly if you live east of Harrisburg. There were lots of goals, plenty of skating and relatively little defense.

It looked like something from the 1980s, particularly when you consider how poorly the Penguins used to play in Philadelphia in that era. The only things missing were mullets and brown goaltender pads.

But it was sloppy. There wasn’t a ton of cohesion on either side of the puck. The Penguins and Flyers looked exactly like two teams that had a brief training camp after largely being off the ice for the better part of 10 months.

That will probably be how this season goes for the entire league, at least in the early stages.

Penguins fans saw why Panthers got rid of Mike Matheson. It wasn’t because he was trying to learn a new system, that is how he usually plays.
