TORONTO _ A large contingent of Flyers' front-office personnel and former players are in Toronto for Monday night's induction of the late Fred Shero into hockey's Hall of Fame.
Back home, the Flyers are practicing in Voorhees at 11 a.m. There is lots of improvement needed.
The Flyers, trying to build off their 4-2 win over lowly Edmonton Saturday, will play Bobby Ryan and the Senators Tuesday in Ottawa, starting a three-game trip that also takes them to Pittsburgh and Winnipeg.
The Flyers are 5-10-1, and the accompanying numbers reflect that:
The last stat does not reflect how well goalie Steve Mason has played; he has a 4-7-1 record, but has a 2.34 GAA and .925 save percentage.
Winger Steve Downie, who has missed the last four games because of a concussion, is expected to return to the lineup Tuesday. Downie skated on a line with Sean Couturier and Matt Read on Monday.
Downie's return could lead to a demotion for Michael Raffl. Stay tuned.
