Power Rankings
The Flyers are on the outskirts of the playoff conversation, but did enter the break with a big win over the first-place Capitals. They're about to enter a very tough portion of their schedule which could be season-defining.
The Flyers can't seem to stay on track this year. They've lost three straight games, all by a one-goal deficits. Rookie defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere remains one of the great stories of this team, though. He is averaging 0.71 points per game from the blue line.
It's been a long road, but the Flyers are back in the mix of the incredibly tight playoff race in the Eastern Conference. They've won five of their last six and seem to be improving in the goal-scoring department. Claude Giroux is leading the way with 35 points in 43 games.
The Flyers have won three straight to offset a recent three-game losing streak. They just need to find a way to stem those cold spells that have plagued them throughout the season and they could stay in the postseason mix.
Three straight road losses have somewhat killed the momentum the Flyers have been building up for themselves with improved play. Now the Flyers have to deal with six straight against teams in playoff position.
The Flyers seemed to be starting to get on a roll, but haven't been able to maintain the level of offensive consistency to sustain the momentum. They've at least put themselves back in at least the outskirts of the playoff conversation though.
Philadelphia has been a different team of late. They've won nine of their last 14 games over the last month and have been scoring with more regularity. Claude Giroux has been leading the way with 28 points this season.
The Flyers have shown some massive improvement and their recent four-game winning streak sure helps a lot. They've now won five of their last seven and seem to be growing more comfortable. Still a long way to go.
Back-to-back wins over quality opponents has to put a little belief into the Flyers. They're still the lowest-scoring team in the NHL, but rookie defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere has been a breath of fresh air.
The Flyers have joined the Ducks in the Just Can't Score Department. They're averaging only 1.7 goals per game. No team on the planet that's going to win like that.
Preseason Power Rankings
The Flyers have had their ups and downs early. They might not have a worse game the rest of the season than the 7-1 loss to the Panthers. So that may be the bright side going forward.
