Is It Time In Philadelphia?

from Sam Carchidi of Philly Hockey Now,

What if the power play is as bad as it has looked in the first four preseason games?

Well, if that all happens, the Flyers will certainly be in the running for super-prospect Connor Bedard, a center known as the Can’t-Miss Kid.

The Philadelphia Flyers have two preseason games left, and it’s time for the offense to show a pulse, even if these games mean less than the price of gas in 1970 (36 cents per gallon).

It’s time for the Flyers to put together their expected opening-night lineup — or close to it — on Sunday against the host Islanders. It’s the first preseason game in which new coach John Tortorella will be behind the bench.

It’s time to find out what the Flyers have. Or don’t have.

It’s time for the attack to produce more than one goal a game, their average in their 1-3 preseason.

The Flyers’ offense has been virtually nonexistent. Too many one-and-dones. Too little traffic in front of the net. Too much shooting from the perimeter.

Too little cohesiveness on the power play, which is clicking at 6.7% (1 for 15).
