On the Flyers: Oy, the Flyers

The Flyers played four games over the last week, and boy, were they ugly. Now the team is riding a four-game losing streak heading into this weekend, when they will take on Columbus on Saturday night (a team they lost to last Friday). We keep hearing the same excuses, about needing consistency and to play the full sixty minutes and blah blah blah. At least the Flyers played with some fire against Minnesota last night. Here’s hoping they can get their stuff together and win a game this weekend. In the meantime, check out the stories from Pattison Ave from the past week, in case you missed them:
