2010 Winter Classic: Broad Street Hockey's Reaction to Stunning Flyers Loss

Travis Hughes at Broad Street Hockey has the Flyers' reaction from the overtime loss to the Bruins, in which Philadelphia dominated the game for 57 minutes before allowing Boston to come back and eventually win the game.

Kimmo Timonen was called for a tripping penalty late in the game that led to Recchi's goal, a call that many Flyers fans in attendance were not happy with. It was pretty inevitable that the orange and black would take a penalty or two, though, considering the way the Bruins took them to the task in the third.

"I thought that was probably their best period," Laviolette said. Still, the Flyers held the lead until late, but in the end it came down to not burying their own scoring chances, mostly thanks to being too fancy with the puck.

"I thought we played a sound offensive game right until the end," said Laviolette. "We had our opportunities, even in the overtime, and we couldn't get the second goal."
