Flyers' Road Killing

There are a lot of reasons the Flyers are sporting the NHL's best road record (6-1-1), but here is our favorite:

After allowing a power-play goal 42 seconds into their first penalty in the opener at Boston, the Flyers then killed 26:33 of road power plays before the Canadiens scored, another 20:30 of road power plays before the Lightning connected, and have now killed 22:12 since without allowing one.

Now, if they could just get that same penalty-killing mojo going at home, they'd really be set.
