After the first intermission, Mike Milbury and Keith Jones weighed in on the odd scene in the first period of the Lightning’s 2-1 victory over the Flyers. The Lightning sat back in their familiar 1-3-1 defensive system that waits for the opposition to attack. The Flyers sat back and waited for the Tampa Bay forwards to attack and actually do something more than just stand in the neutral zone.
The result was something that we don’t see every day. Here’s what Milbury and Jones had to say about the defensive tactic and Flyers’ head coach Peter Laviolette’s response:
