Default Flyers fed up with the Lightning 1-3-1 trap

I laughed my butt off seeing the Flyers do this to Tampa. the Flyers got fed up with the 1-3-1 boring trap, and instead of just dealing with it, they stood in their zone and waited for Tampa to do something. Too bad the refs didn't let it continue.

Hockey is the greatest sport, but teams like Montreal, New Jersey, and Tampa that play this boring trap hockey ruin the game and keep others from watching this. Worst yet is when any of these three teams play each other. Its like watching water freeze. Who is gonna sit and watch that game. Only hard core fans, and we need the sport to grow.

The NHL needs more fans to see the game. No one is gonna pay to watch TRAP hockey. Maybe the NHL should get rid of icing altogether, which would stop the trap system in its tracks.

1-3-1 traps only encourages new hockey fans to tune to something else.

I gotta admit this was worse than some soccer games I've seen
