What do you say when your team gets blown out 7-1 in your second game of the season?
For the Philadelphia Flyers, the answer is: plenty of things, especially behind closed doors.
CSNPhilly.com shares some interesting quotes following that shellacking at the hands of the Florida Panthers, ranging from Jakub Voracek saying a bad word to Steve Mason taking the blame and Dave Hakstol trying to downplay the defeat.
“The one thing that is absolute is that nobody is going to overreact,” Hakstol said. “You take this situation and deal with it for what it is. Deal with it honestly. Most of those dealings will take place in the locker room.”
Special request: let some of the juicy stuff surface publicly. It will be fun, we promise.
The Flyers won’t need to wait long to try to avenge that drubbing on Saturday, as they host the Panthers in Philly on Monday.
Not to overreact, but many will call for a passionate response from the Flyers tomorrow.
