Flyers' rivalry turns to rout in the blink of an eye

Tuesday's night's 5-1 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins was all the proof you needed as the Flyers had a prime opportunity to pass up their cross-state rival in the wild-card standings, only to watch it come crashing down in a span of two minutes and 17 seconds when the Pens scored three unanswered goals (see observations). "We know [there are] big points for grabs, especially tonight," Sean Couturier said. Coming off their most impressive win of the season, a 5-3 victory last Friday in Tampa over the NHL's best team at the midway point, the Flyers reverted back to the team that brings the required effort but can't seem to pair that with the necessary goals or sound defensive play.
