Does fighting equal winning? Sounds like a ridiculous notion.
It doesn't if you look at the statistics.
For a punchless Flyers team, punching might be exactly what they need. Consider:
- The Flyers average 1.13 points per game in games with at least one fight and 0.64 points per game with no fights.
- The Flyers are 4-1-0 in games with at least two fights.
- If they averaged 1.13 points per game over the 30 games thus far, the Flyers would have 34 points, good enough for a tie for sixth place in the Eastern Conference.
