Peter Laviolette Fired If Flyers Loses To Devils Tonight

Philadelphia Flyers goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov said that the team would be done if they lost on Wednesday and Friday to New Jersey in both halves of their home-and-home series and while thats an overstatement, their situation is certainly dire.

That being said, there have been hints that if the Flyers do lose on Friday, coach Peter Laviolette will be done, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Lavys emotional, hes intense, he thinks the game really well, Flyers forward Scott Hartnell said. His bench awareness is great; its definitely not his fault.

Having the vocal support of his players is great, but when teams fail to live up to expectations for long enough, changes come. It might take time, but as weve recently seen with Lindy Ruff, no one is completely immune.
