What a difference a week makes…
Last weekend, the Flyers did what not many thought was possible, went on the road on back-to-back nights and defeated a highly-skilled (albeit now struggling) Toronto team and the next night beating arguably the best team in the game in Boston.
Spirits were high as the Flyers improved to 5-0-1 in a six-game stretch at that point. Heck, things were still looking up as recently as Wednesday when the Flyers lost in a shootout to the Washington Capitals, the the team with the best record in the sport at this juncture.
