Esche Says Its Niitty

Esche has seen playoff starter, and it’s not him
ROBERT ESCHE doesn’t believe there is a goalie controversy.
He doesn’t think Ken Hitchcock is struggling to decide whether Esche or Antero Niittymaki is going to be the Flyers’ starter when the playoffs begin or that his coach will wait until the end of the regular season to make his choice known.
“The writing is on the wall,” Esche said. “[Hitchcock] hasn’t said anything to me, and I really don’t know what’s going to happen, but I’ll bet you right now that [Niittymaki] is the starter and is going to be the starter for the rest of the year.
“It’s not tough to analyze, I don’t think, anyway. I’m not really sure why but obviously [Hitchcock] has gotten a lack of confidence in my game somehow. I don’t know why. I’ve been having a tough time all year trying to put my finger on it. So I don’t know.
