Thursday Morning Fly By: Series Lead, Boosh Love, Pronger Praise
The Flyers got too complacent under Stevens and developed a cavalier attitude. They took advantage of him, didn't play with enough passion and helped him become unemployed. Shame on them. No one worked harder than Stevens. No one studied more film. No one cared more about this franchise. Again, shame on the players for taking those qualities for granted."
An in-depth look at new Philadelphia Flyers head coach Peter Laviolette. What does he bring to the table?
"The guys are playing hard. You guys are going to paint the picture you want to paint. Mike Knuble is trying to get position in front of the net there -- I don't think that's a retaliatory penalty. I don't think I've ever seen Mike Knuble take a retaliatory penalty. I thought our guys played hard tonight and I thought our guys showed a lot of discipline. You're going to have penalties in the course of a game by just playing the game. That's what happened tonight.
- John Stevens, speaking post-game to a reporter who insinuated that the penalties in overtime were caused by a lack of discipline
