Power Rankings
The Flyers aren't ready to throw in the towel yet, even if it would take some magic to make the playoffs. Somewhat related, the team will find out if defenseman Kimmo Timonen will be able to play out the remainder of the season.
GM Ron Hextall says the team has no interest in tanking, but he's also realistic. This is a team that, barring a miracle, is going to miss the postseason and needs to start making some changes.
The Flyers have the league's top two scorers in Jakub Voracek and Claude Giroux, but are nine points out of the playoffs. Now they're without Steve Mason for a few weeks with little hope of making up that ground.
The Flyers had better hope Claude Giroux's recent injury isn't too serious. They are already in trouble with him in the lineup, but could be lost without him if they aren't already.
The Flyers had to be happy to get Steve Mason back from injury, but that didn't help them in a loss to the Coyotes. Though Mason has been fine when healthy, the Flyers can't seem to get everything going at the same time.
Things have picked up a bit for the Flyers of late. Not surprisingly, Jakup Voracek has been right at the front of that charge. After posting 11 points in his last seven games, Voracek leads the NHL with 44 points.
The Flyers don't have Steve Mason to blame anymore for their relative lack of success. The Philly netminder has a .935 save percentage in 15 starts since the beginning of November.
Things are pretty dire. Though the Flyers snapped a six-game skid Saturday, the damage done over that span makes a turnaround seem unlikely.
The question for Flyers fans now is how much worse can it get? They've lost four straight and their once-dependable goal scoring has gone south during the skid.
There's a real question about how long head coach Craig Berube has left with this club. Things are getting ugly in Philly.
Preseason Power Rankings
The Flyers remain a difficult team to get a read on. Clearly, they're having trouble closing out games and starting goalie Steve Mason has allowed seven goals through two starts.
