Any Questions now?
Coming into the season the only question people had regarding the Flyers was their goaltending. Does anyone want to question it now? Yes, the Flyers have had their normal slow start to the season. They have been carried by Simon Gagne through the first third of the season. And of course they have been hammered with injuries early. The only question going into the season was how the goaltenders would play.
With Cechmanek coming off of a Vezina caliber season, and Boucher trying to re-claim the starting role after a disappointing sophmore showing there was good reason to question the net-minders. Roman hasn’t played quite as strong as last year but is getting back to last years form. Before going down with a hamstring injury Brian Boucher outplayed Roman and regained the starting job. As a team the Flyers have given up 59 goals in 28 games. The next best team is Colorado with 61 goals against. Despite both slow starts, goaltending has kept both teams above .500. Does anyone think that there is a problem with the Flyers goaltending now?
