Much like Game 1, one team looked very ready for Game 3. Another did not. It was not the home team.
The Flyers effort on Tuesday night in Game 3 was simply not good enough. That is obvious by the 4-1 score that mirrored Game 1.
But what was more alarming was the Flyers overall lack of response to a home crowd and lack of energy after a Game 2 win. They should have had all the momentum. The New York Rangers proved that this will not only be a difficult series, but an elevated effort is the only way they will prevent an early exit.
