Episode three...revenge of the...

War! The Republic is crumbling under attacks...

Since we no longer have to discuss system...for now...let's focus on some very positive things, and the next debate item I will attempt to prove visually...it involves #10...

First, Rinaldo acting like a hockey player...making a great decision and an even better pass...

Not only is this a great pass to a spot from Rinaldo, check out Couturier's ability to get around the defender keeping his stick blade free...the defender's objective there is to tie up the body AND the stick...

Next, Giroux with more space than the two previous games combined...thus, the impact of returning Voracek to that line...

Simmonds to Lecavalier...there's a lot to like about these two together...

Look, Giroux with space again! The bench was yelling to shoot...thus Hartnell rushed the shot...these two are not "broken"...

The next sequences might upset some...and thus, the reference to #10...although, there is some really nice hockey here...and, a #10 pattern...

First, please note where Streit is in comparison to Schenn...next, Couturier makes a move to get around forechecker to start the breakout...

While I am attacking Schenn, why not keep it in the family? :) Just a terrible decision...not only because he went up the middle, but because his primary target on the break out was open!

THE GOAL! Nice win on the draw, but the key to the play? #25...

This one is part of the pattern...an age old play...in fact, I think the Flyers do this drill in camp...puck carrier moves one way against a defender, shooter moves in the opposite direction...except #10 doesn't move!!! Check out the goalie's head! This should've been a goal...or at least a shot on net...on the PP...and that's Schenn's role on the PP to get the shot!

Look how fast these guys close on Schenn...that's how fast you must react in the NHL to be a goal scorer...

It's a new day! Let's end on a positive, 'eh? 21 seconds of PK brilliance...how in the world would anyone want to trade this guy, but not that guy, is beyond me...

Conclusion: if you are going to create a defense first culture, where guys are accountable and smart away from the puck, there's all you need to see...it's no mystery why the Flyers have a top 10 PK. This team might not be perfect, but they are a lot better than an 0-3 start.
