Power Rankings
The Flyers are somehow alive despite their top goaltender being hurt and their top two goal scorers not scoring nearly as much as they have been. Wins over Nashville and Washington could be a great springboard.
The Flyers could get a big boost with the expected return of Kimmo Timonen soon. Unfortunately it's probably too late for them to make it count. The Flyers have just one regulation loss in their last 10 games. If the Bruins continue to sputter, there's still a slim chance.
Steve Mason's strange, and possibly serious injury is yet another mishap in a year of many for the Flyers. They're squandering some great offensive performances and the year could get worse yet without the No. 1 between the pipes.
The Flyers are really trending up after rattling off four straight wins. They're 6-4-0 over their last 10 and appear poised to overtake Florida for ninth in the East. Unfortunately, the playoffs still look doubtful as Philly is nine points out.
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.
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.
