Falling to the Philadelphia Flyers and Flaws

Well, the Brad Richards notched his 400th career point tonight and Vinny Lecavalier notched #450 of his career. You can label both those as accomplishments for the night...

But watching this game and watching the Lightning's streak of victories against the Flyers come to a close, I couldn't do much more than recall Tiny's comment he posted last night:

BTW, you left defense off the list on your recent poll. One Boyle does not a defense make.

That was the great equalizer... Versus the last place team in the NHL, the Lightning defense allowed four goals... Poor line changes, poor coverage, lack of grit... If you want to know what's wrong with this team (while Vinny, Marty and others are contributing enough offense), look no further than the Lightning defense.
