After the fans booed two Flyers' goaltenders Saturday during a 6-4 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins, they heard a little push-back.

James van Riemsdyk:  “You know, I think those guys have to keep quiet up there. They pay their money to see the team, but you win as a team, lose as a team. You can't pinpoint it on one guy. Those guys are working hard out there. We have to support them a little bit better and figure it out. It's not just one guy. It's all 20 of us out there.”

Ilya Bryzgalov:  “I think it's an easy life when you can blame the one guy. It's a bad goal, it's a goalie's mistake. It's easy to find a scapegoat. When you point to one guy and say, 'We're always losing because of goalies,' I think it is the wrong philosophy.”

Yep. Telling Philadelphia sports fans to pipe down has a real good chance to work.
