I'd start by looking at what the plan is when you have a 2-3 goal lead. This team had several of them and consistently blew them against a good offensive Flyers team. It seemed like the Pens stop playing their game which got them the lead in the first place.
Secondly we need to move from the mindset that we can just play our system and not worry about what our opponent is doing. If a passive PK isn't working against an opponent then change it. Don't keep doing it and expect different results.
Again these are coaching problems not player problems which is why I'm confident whether you agree with it or not, there won't be 1 significant roster move.
