Some Teams Have Meetings, Some…

One by one, as the Flyers skated back-and-forth in sprints during yesterday’s lengthy practice, Peter Laviolette called out the players who took mindless penalties in recent games and made them skate alone while everyone else rested.

Jeff Carter, Kimmo Timonen, Claude Giroux and Mike Richards were just some of those singled out for a lack of discipline.

Afterward, Laviolette said it was nothing more than “just a good practice.” But his players got the message.

“It’s got to stop,” Danny Briere said about the Flyers’ league-leading number of penalty kills. “The last four games, we have been taking too many penalties. It’s been happening since Game 1. We put ourselves in trouble. Our power play to penalty-kill ratio is lopsided and we have to do something about it.”

And some coaches have meetings. Let’s see if Peter Laviolette  accomplishes in a few minutes what it took Randy Carlyle hours, days, a couple seasons to do.

    There are too many entries here and I cannot even read all of them, not to mention responding. (This is not a complaint, it’s an indirect compliment – but this good blog needs marketing!!)

    lol, thank you cz. Really. One of my goals is to get more stuff up everyday than one person has time to read or view. So you saying there’s too much to go through is very special. Thanks Bud.
