The Flyersâ€™ are snakebitten and adding to management frustrations is that fans are staying away from Philly home games. The team hopes that both problems will be temporary. Most around the team feel the attendance problem has to do with fans showing their frustration as a result of a cancelled season. â€œThe league is aware of the issue and theyâ€™re taking a hard look at it as low crowds have affected most teams,â€ said the GM, however, I believe there is something more systemic at work.â€ The bigger problem with the team is scoring and wins. The Flyers have badly outplayed opponents averaging 35.5 shots per game (2nd in the league) and giving up 24.2 shots against (5th in the league). The team, who is 1-1-2, has scored 9 goals in 4 games for an average of 2.1 goals per game and has given up 8 goals or 2.0 per game. Besides ranking in the top half of the league in shots, theyâ€™re 11th in PP and 6th in the PK. You would think those stats would lend itself to more wins. â€œWe have players who can put the puck in the net. Arnott and Gagne have averaged over 5 shots a game each with only a goal to show amongst them, thatâ€™s 1 goal per 40 shots from our top 2 scorers,â€ explained coach Lemaire. â€œA couple of our guys are producing, Fish already has 3 goals, Mellamby 2 and Markov has 2 from the backend, but we need Whit, Arnott and Gagne to produce.â€ â€œWeâ€™re a little frustrated but itâ€™s early. I know Iâ€™ve been holding the stick a little tight lately. Hopefully the goal last night will give me the lift I need to put the puck in the net more often,â€ explained Gagne. At the beginning of the season there was a lot of skepticism towards Lemaire and whether he could adjust his coaching style to the new, free wheeling NHL. Although the goals have not materialized, the team has put a lot of offensive pressure on opponents, now they have to show that all that pressure can result in goals and wins.
