The day after their head coach was fired, Philadelphia Flyers players were taking responsibility for their own poor play as they prepared for tonight’s visit from the Florida Panthers.
“It was a tough day yesterday,” captain Claude Giroux said of Peter Laviolette’s dismissal, per Philly.com. “We’re the ones on the ice. We’re the ones doing the job. Obviously, we didn’t get the job done. We need to play more as a team on the ice.”
Giroux has been held pointless as the winless Flyers have managed to score just three goals in 180 minutes of play.
“We need to have a better attitude – both for myself and the whole team,” he said. “We need to have a better mindset going into games.”
