The Philadelphia Flyers had three wins in a row including an exciting come from behind win against the Columbus Blue Jackets.
However that win streak came to an end against the New York Islanders on Sunday as they lost 5-3
Something we've seen really stand out over the last couple of games is the Flyers really dumping the puck in. While it's something that might not be entertaining, it's a style that can create turnovers and head coach Alain Vigneault says you can expect some more of it.
"I think we’re putting a lot of emphasis right now on making the other team’s defensemen turn, making them go back for pucks, forcing them into turnover situations where we can press and create that quick counter, whether it be in the offensive zone or the neutral zone,” Vigneault said last Wednesday. “We are chipping more pucks in, and I think, at the end of the day, that’s a read that players are going to get more used to.”
The Flyers head coach doesn't mind holding onto the puck when jumping into the zone.
“It’s like anything else — if you’ve got room, use the room, make a play,” he said. “And if you don’t have room, get it behind them. And that’s what we’ve been stressing, whether it be from our breakout situation, to the neutral zone, to the offensive zone.”
