The Philadelphia Flyers have a couple of days off as they try and regroup to put a stop to their nine game losing streak. 

While a large group of fans have had enough and were chanting for Dave Hakstol to fired during Tuesday's game, Flyers general manager Ron Hextall doesn't understand why everyone is freaking out. 

"We're not playing poorly," Hextalltold reporters. "To look objectively at our team right now, to say we're playing poorly? No. Are we shooting ourselves in the foot at times? Yes, we are.

"I still believe we're a playoff team. We need to be better at some critical moments. But part of it, we need to continue to do what we're doing because we're doing a lot of good things."

While Hextall is right to a certain degree, five of the team's nine straight losses have come after regulation, the team is six points out of a playoff spot and missed the playoffs by seven points last year. 

Two teams who struggled at the start of the season, the New York Rangers and Montreal Canadiens, have both looked to have turned it around, while the Flyers continue digging their own grave. 

The team will be looking for their first win in three weeks on Saturday against the Bruins, they'll also be hoping to not be booed off the ice for the second game in a row.
