The Flyers are as perplexing of a team as ever. After getting embarrassed on a 1-4-1 west coast swing where the team at times appeared mentally checked out, dazed, and confused, they’ve somehow managed to put together a string of decent results at home.
Has it been the best looking hockey? No. Has the team played a consistent brand of hockey over the last three games? No. If I had told you a week ago that the Flyers would go 2-1-0 against three of the best teams in the Eastern Conference, would you have cared about how they got four-of-six points? Probably not. That was my line of thinking, at least, when Anthony and I debated the team’s play over the past few weeks on Snow The Goalie. The Flyers capped off a three-game homestand with one of the more impressive comebacks in recent years, getting key contributions from a number of players who needed a big game.
