PHILADELPHIA – Flyers Fans need a jolt of optimism.

I understand it’s hard right now, what with the team losing six of the first seven games, scoring just 10 goals and switching coaches already.

But it’s that last part that I want to focus on for a minute here.

Let’s go back to the last time the Flyers made a coaching change. The circumstances were definitely different, but not as different as you might think.

It was the 2009-10 season when John Stevens was fired and replaced by Peter Laviolette.

PHILADELPHIA – When things aren’t going well for a team, they always try to search for positives.

A lot of times, it’s all they have to cling to as they try to muddle their way through what is impeding them from being victorious more often than not.

Sometimes, it’s cut and dry that they are a bad team. Sometimes there’s a lot more to it than that.

For the Flyers, five games into a season that has already seen a coaching change and with it a system switch that results in adapting to a different philosophy, it is still way too early to tell what’s what.

Usually the morning after a game, I take the time to break down an aspect of the contest from the night before in this space.

But today, will be a little different.

Today we have a guest voice on FlyersInsideOut.com.

I am fortunate this season to have a college intern working with me sometimes, and last night I gave here the task of focusing on a key factor of the game not named Steve Mason (after all, I was writing about the goalie!)

She took on the project head on and sent me her copy three times in the middle of the night…. Just to make sure I got it. That’s dedication!

So, without further ado, I offer you the breakdown of the penalty kill last night by Grace Balassone.

Her contact info is available at the end of the blog.

VOORHEES, N.J. – It is Day One of the Craig Berube era for the Philadelphia Flyers, and there were some very telling moments at his first “practice” which technically was a morning skate but had more than a few practice elements to it.

There were line juggles. There was defensive realignment. There were game situations practiced – namely breakouts and forechecking, before getting to special teams.

All told, the Flyers morning skate, which usually runs about 20 minutes at half-speed, was a 50-minute hockey-fest with a lot of game-speed action.

Something tells me this won’t be the norm on game days, and was rather a one-time deal as Berube tries to make on-the-fly systematic adjustments.

PHILADELPHIA – Nobody’s Happy.

After sitting back for a few hours and taking in what happened this morning, I think that’s the most apparent thing with the Flyers right now, and frankly, Flyers fans should look at this positively.

That’s not to say that firing a coach should ever be looked at is a good thing – especially a guy like Peter Laviolette, who does have a Stanley Cup on his resume, who got the Flyers to the Stanley Cup Finals a little more than three years ago and who has the third-most wins in franchise history.

It’s hard to ignore the fact that Laviolette is an excellent coach with a solid track record, who no doubt will coach again in the NHL in the near future and likely with a good measure of success.

But what it does say is that the organization is willing to do whatever it takes to correct recurring errors or eradicate mistakes.

PHILADELPHIA -- Unsatisfied with the team's start to the season, which has seen them score just three goals in three games, all losses, the organization has decided to change its leadership voice.

As such, head coach Peter Laviolette has been relieved of his duties after nearly four years as coach. He has been replaced by assistant coach Craig Berube, who becomes the 18th man to coach the team in franchise history on a full-time basis.

Berube will not have an interim tag on his job title. This is his team for the forseeable future.

VOORHEES, N.J. – For Scott Laughton, there won’t be a nine-game looksee after all – at least not now.

The Flyers decided Thursday to loan Laughton back to his junior team, the Oshawa Generals of the OHL.

PHILADELPHIA – New season. New attitude. New music.

You didn’t expect it to be any other way did you?

With the start of the 2013-14 campaign, the Flyers will have new warm up music, a new goal song and a new victory song in the locker room.

And apparently, the locker room DJ’s picking the music this year are none other than captain Claude Giroux and alternate captain Scott Hartnell.

For the warmups the start is familiar, as the team is sticking with Jay-Z and his Public Service Announcement.

But, from there, everything is new.

PHILADELPHIA – There was an optional morning skate for the Flyers today before their season opener against Toronto.

While a handful of players who are in the lineup tonight took part, there were three who stayed on the ice a bit longer – because they are expected to be healthy scratches tonight.

The two defensemen weren’t much of a surprise – Erik Gustafsson and Hal Gill appear to be the No. 7 and No. 8 defensemen on the roster for now.

The forward though, may have been a bit more of an unexpected sight – Scott Laughton.

VOORHEES, N.J. – When the Flyers released their opening night roster yesterday, it was noticeably light with only 21 players listed.

Teams are allowed to carry 23 players on their roster at any one time, so there appeared to be some certainty that they would make another roster move or two before opening night.

And that happened Tuesday.

The Flyers signed defenseman Hal Gill to a one-year contract worth $700,000, making him the eighth defenseman on the roster.
