Last week, Craig Berube threatened benchings. On Saturday, they began.
First, it was Andrew MacDonald and Pierre-Edouard Bellemare who took a seat on Saturday.
The benchings continued as the West Coast trip began. This time, Vincent Lecavalier was a victim. And so was...Michael Del Zotto? Wait a minute, the Flyers most consistent defenseman all season was benched too?
"To me, his defensive play has dropped off a little," Berube said.
Really? It's always frustrating in Tankadelphia.
