The Mike Richards question

About the Flyers' captain

Q: Which Flyers player, in Game 1 against Boston -- the 7-3 loss when so many of his teammates didn't show up, the game that sent the whole thing careening out of control -- scored a goal, was on the ice for only one of the seven Boston goals, was out there for only about three or four scoring chances against, tied for the team lead with eight shots on goal, and did it all as he began his eighth month with torn cartilage in his left wrist that required surgery at the end of the season?

A: The guy that so many people seem to doubt as the team's captain.
