The Philadelphia Flyers continue to hold onto a Wild Card spot despite some offensive struggles.
Philly heads into Florida tonight to take on the Panthers and the Flyers have gone 5-2-3 in their last 10 games.
Head coach Alain Vigneault hasn't been shy about calling out players so far publicly in the media and he was at it again.
Vigneault said that despite being a big fan of Kevin Hayes, Jake Voracek and James van Riemsdyk off the ice, he's not feeling what he's gotten from them on the ice so far.
“All those guys, I love Kevin Hayes as a person, James and Jake, I’m starting to know they’re great people,” Alain Vigneault said after Monday’s practice. “I need more from the hockey player. Two different distinctions, right? The person and the hockey player. Those three guys, I need more from the hockey player. I know that they want to do well.
“We’re 20 games in — it’s time, you know? And I’m not telling you anything that I haven’t told them. Obviously, they feel pressure, but that’s why they (get) paid the big bucks. You’ve got to deliver, you’ve got to produce and we expect those guys to produce.”
Will these three finally get it going tonight in Philly?
