VOORHEES, N.J. — John Tortorella emphasized a vital aspect of the Flyers’ development after his first game as the team’s head coach last season. He highlighted the nature of the NHL as “a find-a-way league.”
As the Flyers enter Year 2 under Tortorella, the team’s objective is to showcase progress by discovering innovative ways to win. They believe that winning and developing should go hand in hand with its rebuild.
While the Flyers have been imperfect lately, their spirit has brought them hard-earned wins that prevented potential downtrends. In their last six games, the Flyers have achieved a 2-3-1 record, with their two triumphs coming in shootouts, thwarting three-game losing streaks.
“Every game, every team, all year long, you’re never perfect,” Tortorella shared during a Monday morning skate. “There are mistakes, there’s bad luck, whatever comes, you’ve just got to try to overcome it. I like our room. I think that’s where our biggest improvement so far this year has been, our locker room and how they handle some of the things that go on.”
Notably, three of the Flyers’ last four wins have been secured by a one-goal margin, illustrating their penchant for close victories. Even their 3-4-2 games decided by one goal depict the Flyers’ growing capability to seize crucial moments.
With the Flyers coming off a remarkable win against Pittsburgh, they are now looking forward to building on this success when they face Pittsburgh again, this time in Philadelphia (7 p.m. ET/NBCSP).
