PHILADELPHIA -- Having spent seven seasons behind the bench with the Anaheim Ducks, Randy Carlyle was used to seeing the NHL from one angle.
But since he was fired by the Ducks in November, Carlyle has gotten to see the game from an entirely different perspective while working as a scout for the team.
"I've done this before, just a long time ago, so it's not something new, but it is a refresher," Carlyle told NHL.com prior to Saturday's Flyers-Rangers game at Wells Fargo Center. "The buildings are different, little bit different routes, but I'll spend here nine games on the road, catch eight games straight. That's all part of scouting."
