Flight Plan: Flying Right Along

The Philadelphia Flyers won two of four games last week and gained points in three, as they climbed back into second place in the Metropolitan Division. The team is now fifth place in the Eastern Conference, by virtue of fewer games played, with 55 points. The importance of gaining points now is important not only to attempt to entrench themselves in one of the top three spots in the Metropolitan, but also to put distance between those teams who are vying for the wild card positions in the Conference. Despite a disappointing loss to the New York Rangers, the Flyers …

Flight Plan: Turning It Around

The Philadelphia Flyers have been one of the hottest teams in the entire NHL in November. Since their first game of the month, a 7-0 blowout loss to the Washington Capitals, they have managed to garner at least a point in the standings in every game except one, as they’ve gone 7-1-2. It’s a pretty impressive little run they’ve been on, but what’s also refreshing is that they are starting to score goals at a more consistent pace. They’ve scored more than two goals on six occasions now for the season, which is a feat they accomplished just once through …

Flight Plan: There’s No Place Like Home

The Philadelphia Flyers have gained a point in each of their last four games. They won three in a row before losing in a shootout to the Winnipeg Jets. What this indicates to this writer is that they’ve finally begun to play a more complete team game after struggling most of last and early this season to find their team game. They still need to learn to shut the door in the third period a little more consistently and scoring more than two goals a game would be nice, but at least they have been able to put a nice …

Flight Plan: Getting Back Into the Swing of Things

­­ Through two games, the Philadelphia Flyers are looking like a good team, but have lacked finish as they’ve been outscored 7-2 thus far in the 2013-2014 season. Luckily, there are 80 more games left as opposed to last year where there would only be 46 games  remaining at this point, and there are some bright spots. The scoring lead for the team is currently a three-way tie between Vincent Lecavalier, Mark Streit, and Brayden Schenn. Schenn and Lecavalier clearly have some chemistry on the second power play unit and have each scored a goal and notched a helper on …
