The Flyers never do things the easy way. Whereas most teams chooses to heat up as they transition into the playoffs, the Flyers are out of gas.
They’re taking two days off after a couple of rough games, including a loss to the Rangers, which is a sign of the apocolypse.
Even goalie Robert Esche is starting to look a bit tired. Don’t be shocked if Sean Burke winds up winning back a starting spot in the playoffs. Esche might not be ready for the grind of a full season. He just might already be too spent.
