Claude Giroux netted a power-play goal in Wednesday's loss to the Islanders, but was also on the ice for all three of the opposition's goals.
On the bright side, Giroux now has three goals and three assists in his last five games, and is clearly heating up after an early-season slump. That being said, the centerman is still minus-3 over that span, and sports an atrocious minus-7 mark on the season. With his teammates still struggling to find the back of the net, it could be a long season for Philadelphia's captain.
Alex Ovechkin netted a goal on the man advantage, plus he delivered five hits in Wednesday's 5-3 win over the Jets.
Ovechkin had plenty of real estate on the ice while working on the point during the power play and once again made it look easy, accepting a pass from John Carlson and flicking the puck high into the net. Interestingly enough, it was only his second power-play goal of the season, as 85 percent of his points have come at even strength thus far in 2015-16.
Jeremy Lamb recorded 18 points (6-12 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 4-4 FT), seven rebounds, three assists, one steal, and one block in 32 minutes during the Charlotte Hornets ' 101-87 win versus the Wizards on Wednesday.
Lamb has continued to be a solid scorer off the Hornets' bench, and fresh off his recent extension he is oozing confidence in this his first season seeing consistent playing time. His 32 minutes matched a season-high, but if he continues to fill it up offensively like he has been, there's reason to believe he will end up earning more than the 24 minutes per game he had been playing entering Wednesday's match-up versus the Wizards.
Steve Mason allowed just two goals on 35 shots Wednesday against the Islanders, but still picked up the loss, dropping his record to 3-7-4.
Mason continues to suffer from a lack of offensive support, as the Philadelphia Flyers have scored just 15 goals in their last 10 games. Philadelphia only mustered 18 shots on goal in this one, and Mason's win/loss record will continue to plummet as long as the team in front of him struggles to generate chances.
Jaroslav Halak stopped 17 of the 18 shots he faced in Wednesday's 3-1 win over the Flyers.
New York's skaters made life easy on their goaltender, outshooting Philadelphia 36-18 in a lopsided contest. Halak finally seems to be getting back on track, having won two straight after dropping his previous three decisions.
