Game 11 Preview: Anaheim Ducks @ Philadelphia Flyers

Anaheim Ducks (9-3-0) @ Philadelphia Flyers (3-7-0), 7:00pm, CSN-Philly/PRIME After a pair of wins, the Philadelphia Flyers find themselves sitting at 3-7-0 and arguably still searching for their first impressive victory of the season. With one win coming against a Florida Panthers team that saw Tim Thomas let in two soft goals and a sloppy win against the New York Rangers, the Orange and Black did look strong against the New York Islanders for their third win of the year on Saturday.

Flight Plan Week of 10.23.2011

The Philadelphia Flyers started out of the gate as one of the hottest teams in the National Hockey League, winning four of their first five games and getting points in all five of them. Since then, they have suffered two embarrassing (though in different ways) back-to-back losses on home ice at the hands of the Washington Capitals and the St. Louis Blues. To lose to the Capitals by a score of 5-2 when they’re one of the hotter teams in the NHL at the beginning of the season, and just about every bounce goes the way of the opposition, well …
