Stevens Shoots Back

from Philly Burbs,

Coach John Stevens was still somewhat annoyed by Pittsburgh coach Michel Therrien’s post-game comments suggesting the Flyers ran up the score (by using their first power play unit) and resorted to rough-house tactics.

It should be noted the Penguins scored eight goals twice against the Flyers last season and finished 8-0-0 against them.

“When you [Pittsburgh] take running head shots at guys, breaking sticks [over bodies] away from the play and running your goalie ... I would be disrespectful if I didn’t put those guys out there,” Stevens said. “I have a lot of respect for the Penguins, but not for what he had his players do. If you’re going to take those kinds of penalties against us, why wouldn’t we try to score?”
