Flyers just ‘stood around’ in loss to Ducks

The Philadelphia Flyers got out to a 2-0 lead, and then fell apart against the Anaheim Ducks.

The result was a 3-2 regulation loss to the visiting Ducks, and the Flyers now remain at the bottom of the Metropolitan Division with a 3-8-0 record.

The first period was good for Philadelphia. Not only did the Flyers pot a couple of goals to take the lead, they also outshot the Ducks and looked to be in control.

Then it all went wrong. The Ducks scored three unanswered goals, including a pair from Kyle Palmieri in the third.

“We obviously didn’t answer,” Flyers forward Wayne Simmonds told CSN Philadelphia. “It’s really disappointing. We had the game. We were up 2-0 and we just stopped playing.

“We stood around and we were watching. That’s all I can really say. We stood and around and started watching them instead of playing ourselves.”
