Flyers outlast Penguins; Letang injured posted on 01/22/2015

The Philadelphia Flyers never have had a problem ramping up their effort against the Pittsburgh Penguins. It's finding that same level against the rest of the NHL that has been an issue.

"I think we need to find some motivation to play like that every game, every night," Giroux said. "It's not an easy thing to do but we need to find a way to do that."

The Flyers skated most of overtime on the power play after a cross-checking penalty on Zach Still at the buzzer to end the third period and a bench minor on the Penguins for too many men on the ice at 2:04 of OT.

Their salary cap limit was at just over $4 million. This meant that the manager Ron Hextall had to trade some players to resolve the salary cap issue. Thus, R.J. Umberger left the team and the manager signed in Michael Del Zotto who is on a $1.3million one year contract with the Flyers.

He seems to be playing well with the senators last season and he had a fairly decent save percentage. Unfortunately, he did not show a lot of promise in the first few games of the regular season. His time on ice has been declining for the first 3 games he has played in the 2014-2015 regular season. The Flyers have a number of challenging games at the beginning of the season and he will need to do better.
