Flyers' home woes continue

So much for the Flyers establishing themselves as an Eastern Conference power during a season-high five-game homestand. The Flyers are 1-3 on the homestand, including Thursday’s 3-2 loss to Anaheim at the Wells Fargo Center. It was the Flyers’ third straight loss _ all to road teams playing their second game in as many nights. The Flyers dominated Thursday’s game as they outshot Anaheim, 42-22. But Curtis McElhinney, the Ducks’ backup goalie, outplayed rookie Sergei “Bob” Bobrovsky. Ryan Getzlaf won it on a goal with 1:46 left. Including all shots _ those on goal, those blocked, and those that missed the net _ the Flyers outshot Anaheim, 89-40. “We’ve got to find a way to win those home games, and right now we’re not,” said center Claude Giroux, who scored the Flyers’ second goal. “It could hurt us at the end of the season, so we need to regroup and find a way to win on Saturday” against visiting Toronto. In six games, the Flyers (2-3-1) have scored a total of just 13 goals. Captain Mike Richards is still looking for his first goal. Breakaways. Anaheim won the face-off battle, 37-30…..Anaheim’s Bobby Ryan, the pride of Cherry Hill, had five shots and was minus-1 in 22:01…..Giroux had a game-high six shots….The line of Danny Briere, Ville Leino and Scott Hartnell was a combined plus-3…..The Flyers went 0 for 5 on the PP and are 2 for 27 on the season. * * * * * * * For constant Flyers updates, follow me on Twitter at www.twitter.com/BroadStBull. .
