PHILADELPHIA -- Just 48 hours earlier, Philadelphia Flyers coach Craig Berube watched his team blow a 4-1 lead in the final 8:40 of the third period against the Washington Capitals en route to a 5-4 shootout loss.
Rather than sit and stew too long on that game Sunday at Verizon Center, Berube said he was happy to be back at it against the Capitals again Tuesday (7:30 p.m. ET, NBCSN, TSN).
“It’s always good to get back right away and play,” Berube said. “I know the guys are hungry to get back and play.”
Upon a second viewing of the game, Berube said the problems in the third period was more of what his team didn’t do rather than what the Capitals did to them.
“I didn’t think there was a whole lot wrong [with the third period],” Berube said. “We weren’t under siege or under pressure. I thought that we stopped making some plays and plays were there to be made that would have put us down in their end and put some more pressure on them but we didn’t do that.”
