After Game 5 of the Western Conference Finals against the Dallas Stars, the Flyers brought up the Utes when explaining why their roster lost.
“We hit 24 turnovers. I don’t think we would have beaten the Coyotes in January committing 24 turnovers. It’s not against Arizona, but that’s not how to play the playoffs,” Cassidy said on May 27.
“It was a disrespectful comment,” he said Wednesday at a news conference. It was stupid to sign a club that didn’t ask for anything.”
The loss against the Stars was the second loss in a row, after the “Golden Knights” won the first three meetings of the series. However, Cassidy’s Troops rebounded in Game 6 with a convincing 6-0 victory, ending hostilities and allowing the Nevada team to secure their ticket to the Stanley Cup Finals.
During this, the Golden Knights will face the Florida Panthers. The first meeting between the two teams will be held on Saturday and will be broadcast on TVA Sports.
