The morning after: Senators @ Flyers 11.15.10

“The morning after” is a review of the previous night’s Flyers’ game which, in theory, provides a more objective perspective on the game. So the Flyers seem to be playing pretty dominant hockey lately, eh?  The schedule looks tough this week, and it will be a good test for the team.  Not multiple choice, but one of those essay ones that you have to write in those blue books.
