Flyers Look for Afternoon Delight This Weekend

So far this season, the Flyers have struggled mightily while playing during the day.

The team’s 3-8-1 record in afternoon games is proof enough of that.

Looking lethargic at times, the team’s lack of jump in day time hockey has resulted in sloppy play, which has allowed their opponents to outscore them 49-33 in those kinds of games.
