Our 97.3 ESPN Flyers insider, Kevin Durso, was in the building to cover the game for 973espn.com and said the chants were audible during the second period of the game the press box.
Fletcher has been under increased scrutiny this season since missing out on local product Johnny Gaudreau in free agency, who had said he wanted to play in Philadelphia. That, coupled with a last place finish last season with a 25–46–11 record and a nine game losing streak this season has fans extremely frustrated.
Philadelphia will face the New York Islanders tomorrow night, hoping to avoid reaching 10 straight losses for their third time in the calendar year, doing it twice last season.
