    Too much jam? Boy if this isn’t beginning to sound like Ken Hitchcock all over again.

    If you asked Flyers chairman Ed Snider if head coach Peter Laviolette is on the hot seat, he would tell you unequivocally no.

    The Union are on a bye week. Their playoff hopes, which seemed so promising less than a month ago, are now gasping for air in the deepest portion of the Delaware River.

    Peter Laviolette set an NHL record by making seven in-game goaltender switches during the 2011 playoffs.

He beat out Antti Niemi. He eclipsed Henrik Lundqvist. Bobrovsky is the best goaltender…
