Thursday night, the Philadelphia Flyers lost 4-1 at home against the New York Islanders for the first time in seven seasons.
Tuesday, the team defeated Minnesota at home, 5-1. Saturday, they travel New Jersey to face the Devils. Sunday, they host the defending Stanley Cup champion Boston Bruins.
Sounds like the Islanders game was what some refer to as a 'trap game', right?
In the first period last night, the Flyers played like garbage and luckily, goalie Sergei Bobrovsky kept them in the game. It could have been a trap game then, as they were sleep-skating on the ice, with no purpose.
