A lot has gone right for the Flyers thus far, and while their record portrays that, there’s still work to be done in order to go to the next level.
Teams can make leaps from good to great in a matter or time, but it’s almost always a progression and doesn’t happen overnight. Much like a game is progression from puck drop through two intermissions to the final horn. In terms of game progression, the Flyers’ bugaboo has been the very start of games —and the first period of games to be specific.
When you breakdown the Flyers’ work over the course of a game the results end up being pretty cut and dry.
