Flyers defend captain after lackluster series

May 10 Camden Courier-Post:

Flyers defend captain after lackluster series.  Could Mike Richards have played his final game as the Flyers‘ captain?  Could he have played his final game as a Flyer?

Richards’ leadership with Flyers under scrutiny

May 10 columnist Frank Seravalli:

“STANDING IN the middle of his team’s locker room yesterday afternoon, Peter Laviolette looked like a man who had not gotten much sleep since the final horn sounded on the Flyers‘ season Friday night in Boston.  “I’m upset that we’re not in here putting our gear on, breaking down , or getting ready to practice,” Laviolette said. “At the end of the year, when you come up short of your goal, it’s nothing but disappointment.”

Goalie switches hurt, coach says

May 10 Camden Courier-Post:

“Brian Boucher has been around Philadelphia long enough to know he’s not coming back.  Not when the lasting impression of the Flyers goalie is him sitting on the bench in the final game of a four-game sweep hearing derisive chants of “We Want Boucher” from the fans in Boston.

Boucher laments lost opportunity with Flyers

May 10 columnist Sam Donnellon:

“HIS KIDS are in school here, his wife has made her South Jersey friends. So the next transition for the journeyman goalie will be the toughest yet. You could hear the sadness in Brian Boucher’s voice yesterday, a sadness born not out of self-pity but lost opportunity, a sadness that accompanies the inevitable.
