The Flyers, Who Have Lost 7 Shootouts in a Row, Get Stonewalled By Hextall's 19-Year-Old Son In Goal


 
At practice on Monday, the Flyers brought in Jeff Hextall, the 19-year-old son of Ron Hextall, to face some shootout attempts. The Flyers have been god awful at the shootout for as long as the shootout has been a thing so it makes sense that they’d work on it in practice. However, Young Hexy proved to be too much of a test for the Flyers and ended up eating their lunch all over the place. So on Tuesday night the Flyers go out there and lose to the Ducks 4-3 in a shootout. Hilarous. That’s now back-to-back games losing in the shootout and they have lost 7 straight dating back to last season. They went 0 for 3 against the Habs and 1 for 4 against the Ducks. Pretty atrocious stuff, sure, but what’s even worse is the demeanor of the team right now. Here’s your team, still winless in the 2014-15 campaign, and your guys can’t even manage to stuff some home against an snot-nosed brat playing juniors. You’d imagine any team in any sport at that point would be doing sprints or some bullshit like that to get the point across that being that awful is unacceptable. But no, here’s Berube just yuckin it up with the reporters afterwards saying “we’ll just have to win in regulation”. Hey Chief, not sure if you remember this or not but the only reason you’re a head coach right now is because the old guy got shit canned after losing the first 3 games of the season. You’re up to 4 now, big fella. Might wanna tighten up the ship a little. Granted, this Giroux goal from the shootout last night was Filth City, but I’m getting sick and tired of being sick and tired of this team.
