It might be the only consistent part of the Flyers play to this season: the most helpless person on the ice stands between the pipes.
Michal Neuvirth was hardly the reason for the Flyers 4-0 loss on Tuesday, their seventh in the previous eight games. He faced 40 shots against the team with the worst offensive percentages in the league. He sprawled around the crease, desperately trying to keep his team in the game while the rest of the players on the ice stood around and watched.
In the Flyers victories this season, it has often been the goalie playing the biggest role. Three of the Flyers five wins have been shutouts. Steve Mason stole the Flyers a win against the Rangers. Only the Flyers win over the Bruins was an offensive showing that bailed out poor defense.
Enough is enough. It's time for the rest of the Flyers to step up in front of the goalies for a change.
