James Neal confirms what we already knew about Flyers-Penguins

4

"Why we struggled in the playoffs is still a tough question to answer," Neal said. "I don't think anyone really can."

Without prompting, the Flyers entered Neal's mind.

"I didn't watch the game (on Wednesday)," Neal said. "But I guess they lost again to the Flyers, eh? It's the same thing that went on when I was there. What the Flyers do to the Penguins ... I don't know why things didn't go the way they should have gone in the playoffs. I don't know why everyone got so rattled. But it's not my problem anymore."

With today's news of Braydon Coburn and Andrew MacDonald both being out for about four weeks each, the Flyers will have to call up at least one defenseman. The only reason Shayne Gostisbehere wouldn't be playing tonight would be to prevent him from getting hurt for something else. Hmmm indeed, Gary Blockus of the Allentown Morning Call. Hmmm indeed.

The Flyers put together their best game of the year on Wednesday night ... just when it was needed against a bitter rival. Then again, it was at Consol Energy Center, so we should've expected this...
