Flyers played an EXCELLENT game. Unfortunately Nabakov was excellenter.
sure, they could have gotten more traffic in front of him. But he made at least 2 great stops through screens by Simmonds. The shorthanded save on Talbot was huge. Stoned Jagr on a great 1 timer in close. Took two from G that few goalies would even have been in position for. There were a couple of defensie errors, a couple shots wide. But they outshot the Isles 45-18. Bryz pitched a SO. G played his best game in weeks. Only took 3 penalties. Outhit them.... Nabakov flat out stole this game, no doubt.
They have played far worse games against far better teams - and won.
Could they have played better? Sure, every team can, every game, no one is perfect. It seems that's what you're looking for.
