Flyers Drop Two Straight In Ugly Fashion

The Flyers experienced a weekend to forget.

On Saturday, they dropped 6-3 to a hot Tampa Bay team. On Sunday, they put forth an ugly showing against the rival Rangers, losing 4-1 at Madison Square Garden.

The Islanders have begun the season slowly on offense, so for some reason their coach Jack Capuano believes that breaking up the teams top scoring pair is the best way to ignite the team. This logic makes no sense.
