Game two of three between the Flyers and Penguins goes down tonight with the Flyers looking to bounce back after a disappointing loss Tuesday night. Plain and simple the Flyers defense just didn’t show up and the Penguins took advantage.
The Flyers will need to have a much better performance in tonights game to avoid the same result. These two teams are now tied for fourth in the East division with the Flyers currently holding the tie breaker. That being said, the Flyers really need to take advantage of a Crosbyless Penguins and win these next two games.
The Penguins have proved over and over again that they can win without Crosby but I expect the Flyers to bounce back. They have proven time and time again that they are great at bouncing back after a loss and I expect tonight to be no different.
