Claude Giroux said his work ethic comes from John Stevens, who will coach the Kings against the Flyers on Monday.
The Flyers will aim for their seventh straight win Monday and try to avoid being swept in regulation by Los Angeles in a series (minimum of two games) since the teams first met in 1967.
The Flyers could join the 1967 Toronto Maple Leafs as the only teams in NHL history to win seven straight right after a 10-game (or longer) winless streak. Standing in the way: John Stevens' Los Angeles Kings.
Shayne Gostisbere scored both goals as the Flyers extended their winning streak to six games.
Giroux is second on the Flyers with 34 points, but more importantly, he is a plus-9 compared to a minus-15 last year.
Stars coach and former Flyers coach Ken Hitchcock was denied his 800th victory in the Stars 5-2 loss to New Jersey Friday night. He'll try again tonight. He won 131 games in his three-plus seasons as Flyers coach.
Buoyed by subtle changes and a jolt of confidence, the Flyers have climbed back into the playoff hunt with a stunning turnaround. Can they keep it up?
Travis Sanheim has a history of getting hot in December. His first goal for the Flyers could be another spark.
It wasn't an artistic win, but the Flyers will take it. Amazingly, despite a recent 10-game losing streak, they are just two points out of a playoff spot.
Rookie Travis Sanheim scored his first NHL goal to tie it. Val Filppula's goal ended up winning it.
Left winger Michael Raffl had three goals and an assist in his first four games since joining a line with Jake Voracek and Val Filppula, giving the Flyers another scoring option.
Buffalo has the worst record in the East, but the Flyers won't look past the Sabres, the winger says.
At 25, the rising star has become a hockey centerpiece in Philadelphia. He's lived and played hockey everywhere from Phoenix and Milwaukee to remote stretches of Canada.
