The day started with some minor roster shuffling for the Lehigh Valley Phantoms. Anthony Stolarz was needed as the Flyers emergency backup, leaving Jason LaBarbera to start in goal for the first time since Feb. 12.
The Phantoms provided some early offense, but couldn't sustain it as a 2-0 lead turned into a 4-2 loss to the Hartford WolfPack on Saturday afternoon from XL Center.
The Flyers last game on the road before the weekend in Florida was a Tuesday night game where the Flyers played extremely well and ended up on the wrong end of a 3-1 loss to the Carolina Hurricanes. On that night, there was no silver lining or moral victories for a team that had limboed between winning and losing for two weeks.
In the eight games since then, the Flyers have failed to record a point only once and been on the losing end only twice. The second of those games came on Saturday in a shootout to the Florida Panthers, but the point they earned and the way they earned it was much more of a moral victory than any other loss they have taken all season.
