Ebene News – US – Why Vigneault didn’t say a word to the Flyers during the 2nd intermission

Wednesday night in Buffalo, New York, the Flyers (17-13-4) end the month – which was full of turbulence – when they play the Sabers (6-23-5)

• It seems like the whole of March we were wondering if a specific moment could trigger the Flyers’ race and get out of their rut

Perhaps the heart-to-heart conference of the second intermission in the Flyers’ locker room during Monday night’s spectacular 4-3 win could serve as a moment

Alain Vigneault did not bring his club back after the second period as the Flyers lost 3-0 to the unfortunate Sabers

There was no angry coach coming and going, spitting out wake-up orders There was no table flipping

Vigneault sent his message by not showing up The bench boss did not enter the team’s locker room at KeyBank Center between the second and third periods Vigneault could have given the Flyers a listening ear, but he basically decided to say: you got into this, you find your way out

“Sometimes teams and players have to find solutions,” Vigneault said Monday night after the game”There is no doubt that our guys did

“We discussed this morning as a team how important this game is to us and how we should play. We didn’t go out that way for the first 35 minutes”

“Right now, in the situation we find ourselves in, if we want to move forward and get the job done, your best players have to be your best players,” said Vigneault

“A few guys spoke up, Scott Laughton and Justin Braun, a few other guys,” said Claude Giroux “We have the leadership of more than two, three guys Sometimes the message is just a little stronger We have was able to play probably one of our best times of the year in the third period Hope we can build on that

“It’s very frustrating right now We have to figure it out, we have to get together as a group and get our own house in order because there aren’t many games left and we can’t shoot each other in the foot like that”

The victory gave the Flyers their first consecutive wins since February 27-28 In March, they were outscored 25-9 in the first period

“I guess for the next game we should think we are lost 3-0,” said Ivan Provorov “Then maybe we’ll get off to a good start”

• Shayne Gostisbehere cleared the waivers on Wednesday and was placed in the team’s taxi squad Young forwards Oskar Lindblom and Nolan Patrick will sit tonight

“I’m not surprised he canceled the waivers,” Vigneault said in his pre-game media availability on Wednesday “It allows us to have a little more flexibility And one of the flexibilities I was looking for was having the ability to sit both Oskar and Patty I feel both need a break To to be able to do that, there is a limit on the roster of 23 players Because we have three goalkeepers in this situation, if I took out Oskar and Patty and put [Connor Bunnaman] and [Carsen Twarynski], that puts us at 14 forwards And putting Ghost in the taxi team, we have six defenders, so that’s our limit of 23 men

“I really have a feeling that Oskar and Patty are different circumstances Under normal circumstances it would have been difficult for them This is extremely difficult right now the loads I get from our guys from conditioning are extremely high With what these two young men went through, making them sit down tonight – I didn’t put them on ice today, I don’t put them on ice tomorrow; I’m giving them almost 72 hours until Friday when they hit the ice I think for them, mentally and physically, it will be beneficial And if it is beneficial for them, then it will be beneficial for our team “

Erik Gustafsson will be part of the line-up He has been a healthy scratch in the last three games

• Brian Elliott has just won back-to-back wins and is 17-2-2 with an average 174 goals against and 941% saves in his career against the Sabers Alex Lyon will be his replacement
