After an absolutely dreadful start to the regular season, the Philadelphia Flyers are back on track and fighting for a playoff berth in the Eastern Conference. While they still have some weak spots on their roster, the goaltending has kept them in the hunt. The duo of Steve Mason and Ray Emery have helped them team and fantasy hockey owners, but can they carry this team all season long and into the playoffs?

A detailed look at the Couturier, Read, and Downie line

Ask anybody who’s been watching the Philadelphia Flyers over the past two weeks who their best line has been and they’ll reply the Sean Couturier, Matt Read, and Steve Downie line.
