So far, the Philadelphia Flyers have succeeded in playing a much more disciplined game this season.

In terms of minor penalties, the Flyers have been charged with just 12 in five games, which is the lowest total in the NHL. That's after Flyers GM Ron Hextall met with the team and told them that he felt penalties were killing them. This is particularly noteworthy for guys like Zac Rinaldo. He had 153 penalty minutes in 67 games last season, but so far he's limited himself to four penalty minutes in five contests in 2014-15.
