March 25 Philadelphia Inquirer:

“Chris Kunitz’s shootout goal lifted the Pittsburgh Penguins to a 2-1 win over the Flyers last night at the Wells Fargo Center. Pittsburgh’s Alex Kovalev scored the first shootout goal. He was matched by Danny Briere. Kunitz got the final shootout attempt through the legs of Sergei Bobrovsky for the winner.

Troubling signs in shootout loss

March 25 Camden Courier-Post:

“Andrej Meszaros used the word “embarrassed.” Braydon Coburn said the Flyers “lacked the punch we usually have.” Mike Richards said, “Maybe we thought it was an easy game.” But if you want the real reason behind the Flyers‘ unemotional 2-1 shootout loss Thursday night to the Pittsburgh Penguins in front of the biggest home crowd of the season, just ask Flyers defenseman Kimmo Timonen.

Flyers’ power play fizzles

March 25 Camden Courier-Post:

“While the Flyers‘ penalty-killing units continue to climb in the NHL rankings — they entered Thursday night’s game ranked seventh (83.8 percent) after killing off 11 of 12 power plays the previous four games — the power play has plummeted. The Flyers entered their game against the Penguins ranked 19th in the NHL on the man-advantage, at 16.6 percent, and had gone four straight games without a power-play goal (0-for-10).

Bobrovsky bounces back but Flyers fall to Penguins in shootout

March 25 Philadelphia Inquirer:

“IMAGINE, FOR 1 second, that Sergei Bobrovsky and Claude Giroux – two of the Flyers‘ youngest tikes – took a break from the Wells Fargo Center and walked across Broad Street to Franklin Delano Roosevelt Park in South Philadelphia. The weather, like the Flyers‘ status in the Eastern Conference, is breezy and comfortable – even though a few clouds are starting to roll in.

Flyers: Long suspension justified for Cooke’s hit

March 25 Pittsburgh Tribune Review:

“The Flyers historically are sympathetic to players creating controversy. The occasional cheap shot here and goon there has always been part of Flyers‘ lore. These days, however, even Penguins left wing Matt Cooke can’t get warmth from the Flyers. “The hit didn’t need to be made,” Flyers center Blair Betts said. “A suspension was definitely justified.”
