Fake Hockey Help: Howard’s struggles, Ryan Johansen’s production, Sean Couturier’s offensive burst

As Philadelphia Flyers’ fans saw on Wednesday night, Jimmy Howard hasn’t been at the top of his game lately. Before he allowed five goals on 33 shots against to the Orange and Black, Howard was able to provide a 29-save shutout against the lowly New York Islanders. However, the candidate for the American Olympic team endured a seven-game losing streak where he allowed four goals against or more three times and allowed three goals against or more an additional two times. His highest save percentage total in that span for a single game was .920. Obviously, you shouldn’t drop Howard, …

Fake Hockey Help: Tyler Bozak, the Devils’ defense, Mazanec and Andersen

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 …
