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.
The Flyers have silenced almost all the concern about their lack of scoring depth with a growing group of goal scorers during their five-game winning streak.
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.
The Flyers, who have inched to within four points of a wild-card spot, will aim for their fifth straight win Thursday when they face visiting Buffalo.
Sean Couturier's face-off success was among the key factors in Tuesday's victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs.
During their four-game winning streak, the Flyers have not allowed more than two power-play attempts in any contest. They gave the Maple Leafs just one.
The Flyers, coming off a three-game sweep in Western Canada, ended a six-game losing streak at the Wells Fargo Center.
Who says face-offs aren't important? The Flyers first goal came on a clean offensive zone faceoff win by Sean Couturier that slid like a tee shot to Claude Giroux.
