Here are five reasons why the Flyers have avoided their usual slow start.
Their new top line, centered by Sean Couturier, has combined for 22 points in the first five games.
The Flyers, rebounding from a devastating loss in Nashville, got three assists from Jake Voracek as they won their home opener by whipping Washington, 8-2.
The Flyers will have their hands full as they try to contain the league's three leading scorers, including Alex Ovechkin (nine goals).
Rookies Travis Sanheim, Robert Hagg, Nolan Patrick, and Taylor Leier will be playing in their first home opener Saturday for the Flyers.
Unlike last season, the Flyers have two power-play units that are difficult to defend.
The Flyers, who played better than their 2-2 start suggests, play their home opener Saturday night against the high-scoring Capitals.
Flyers coach Dave Hakstol rolled the dice with a coach's challenge in Tuesday's game … and lost.
The rookie hasn't played in the Flyers' four games this season.
The Flyers finished their season-starting road trip with a 2-2 record after giving up two goals in the final two minutes.
Despite an outstanding training camp that included a goal and an assist in five preseason games, Flyers defenseman Samuel Morin is expected to be sent to the AHL's Phantoms, perhaps as early as Wednesday.
The Flyers will face a hungry Nashville team that is missing two of its best defensive players.
The Flyers' fourth line has created numerous scoring chances in the first three games and looks like an upgrade from last year's unit.
Tokarski, who is considered an upgrade by GM Ron Hextall, will bring regular season and playoff experience to the AHL's Lehigh Valley Phantoms.
Improved team speed, better balance on all four lines, and younger legs helped the Flyers dominate the third periods of their games so far.
The Flyers found a way to win despite running into a hot goaltender, John Gibson.
They ended an eight-game losing streak against the Ducks, registering a 3-2 overtime win as Wayne Simmonds scored 44 seconds into OT Saturday night at the Honda Center
In the lineup for the second-straight game, Sanheim will likely stay with the Flyers. Samuel Morin appears headed to the AHL Phantoms.
Just because he was selected No. 2 overall doesn't mean Flyers center Nolan Patrick will be an instant hit.
It will be interesting to see if 6-foot-7, 225-pound Samuel Morin gets a chance to show he belongs with the Flyers when they play in Anaheim on Saturday.
