From the Delaware Journal News :

Asked Monday about Flyers coach Ken Hitchcock’s decision to start him against the Sabres, goaltender Robert Esche said, “I don’t try getting in his head, that’s for sure. It’s an empty place.”

Hitchcock grew red-faced when told of Esche’s comment, and could only come back with the reply, “Tit for tat.”

Buffalo beat Philly, 9-1, Tuesday night.  Esche played the entire game.
