Craig Berube refused to consider the factors off the ice for the Oilers on Tuesday. What mattered was the effort of his own players.
The Flyers turned in their best game of the season on Tuesday, playing with excellent jump from the beginning. In the first 40 minutes, the Flyers opened a 4-1 lead. There was no scoring in the final 20 minutes, but Berube thought the third period was the Flyers best of the game.
"I thought it was our best period of the game," Berube said. "We killed a couple penalties, with Mason making big saves at the end. I thought the first two periods were not casual, but sloppy at times for me, with not enough attack. We had more attack in the third."
