3-on-3 Weekly Update: 1.31.2012

Welcome once again to this week’s 3-on-3,where we look back on the week that was for the Philadelphia Flyers. Since the Fly Guys only had one game last week due to the All-Star break, I thought I would look back at the three best and three worst Flyers players for the season so far. Let’s get to it:  3 “Stars of the first half”: Claude Giroux: No surprise, the Flyers’ leading scorer and all-around offensive dynamo is in the top spot. “G” leads all Flyers with 55 points, which also happens to rank second-best in the NHL, and his 37 …

The Flyers won three of their four games this week, as all three wins came in one-goal games. In the Flyers’ last three games, they have received no help from the line of Claude Giroux, Scott Hartnell, and Jaromir Jagr as all three players are pointless since the Flyers’ win on Thursday. The line will look to find their groove again as the Flyers complete their four-game road trip this week before returning home for a game against the Minnesota Wild on Tuesday.  In their first match-up in Philadelphia since Game six of the 2010 Stanley Cup Finals, the Flyers beat …
