The Philadelphia Flyers have been having a really tough go recently and despite Saturday's win against the New York Rangers things are still looking shaky.
With two upcoming games against the Buffalo Sabres you'd think that it would give the Flyers a great opportunity to get things back on track but with the Flyers right now you never know.
One of the biggest struggles right now is between the pipes and goalie Carter Hart.
Hart has looked like a shell of his former self and has only given up 2 goals or less twice dating back since February 28th and that goes back 11 games.
That's why head coach Alain Vigneault announced today that Hart would be taking some time off to work on his game.
Vigneault announced that Hart wouldn't be starting or playing backup this week instead he'll be watching games from the press box and take some extra time during practice.
"He needs to work harder, he needs to work better. I've had a good conversation with him & Kim about my expectations about his practice habits and him stopping the puck."
Check out his full description of the situation below.
What do you think of the decision?
Carter Hart scratched today & Wednesday. Focus the next few days will be practice & working on his game. AV: "He needs to work harder, he needs to work better.
