Crossing Broadcast: “So You’re Saying There’s a Chance?”

They then take a macro view of the Sixers’ recent run, whether the loss to the Nets means anything, trade targets, and competing with Milwaukee. Finally, a blueprint to beat the Cowboys.

A Passing Grade: Flyers Get Past Maple Leafs 3-2, but Bigger Tests Loom

Anthony SanFilippo - November 10, 2019

The first test has been passed.

In all honesty, the Flyers were moving on to the second, much more difficult test in Boston tonight regardless of what happened with the first test in Toronto, but the fact is they aced it.

And they aced it because they got really good goaltending once again – this time by Brian Elliott – they limited their own mistakes against a highly skilled team, which is important, they won the special teams battle, and they got two of the most diverse-looking shootout goals from a couple of team leaders to defeat the Maple Leafs 3-2.

That makes the Flyers 4-0-1 in their last five games and 7-2-1 in their last 10 games. Those consecutive disastrous losses to the New York Islanders and Pittsburgh Penguins seem like a distant memory at this point.

That’s because the Flyers are 9-5-2 with 20 points through 16 games and currently sit in the top Wild Card position in the Eastern Conference.

Yes, with three quarters of the season to go, a lot can happen. But, let’s look at where the Flyers were since the last time they had 20 points 16 games into the season:

SeasonRecordPointsEastern Conference Standing
2018-198-7-1178th place
2017-188-6-2187th place
2016-177-7-21611th place
2015-165-8-31314th place
2014-157-7-21612th place
2013-145-10-11113th place
2012-136-9-11311th place
2011-129-4-3214th place

And while it’s easy to say, yeah, they were in the same standings position two years ago, so what’s the big deal, the difference is this team is better both talent-wise and coaching-wise. This team still has a game or two in hand on most of the conference because they started the season in Europe. This team is rolling, which it wasn’t doing two years ago. And, with an upset win over the Bruins tonight, they would leapfrog all the way to 4th place in the conference, which would be a first this late in the season since the last time they won a playoff series.

Yes, this is a big deal.

Don’t get me wrong. It can easily go sideways as the Flyers are playing arguably the two best teams in the NHL in their next two games, because after playing in Boston tonight they come home to host the Washington Capitals on Wednesday, but the fact that the Flyers have themselves in this position, is not something fans have grown accustomed to in recent years.

And they’ve gotten there because of the growth and continued growth of some of their young players.

Let’s dive in….

Go Ahead, Call it a Comeback: Flyers 7-4 Blue Jackets

Russ Joy - October 27, 2019

With 17:45 remaining in the third period, Josh Anderson took a wide shot that ricocheted off the board behind the Flyers’ net and deposited it past the outstretched glove of a sprawling Brian Elliott to put the Columbus Blue Jackets up 4-2 in the teams’ first matchup of the season. It looked like it would be more of the same for the Orange & Black, who came into Saturday night’s game having dropped all four matchup a year ago and an even more woeful 5-11-8 record against Columbus dating back to December 21, 2013.

It would’ve been understandable if Anderson’s goal shut down any hope of a Flyers comeback and to be quite honest, last year’s team may have very well turned off the effort when they fell behind 3-2. But this isn’t your 2018-19 Flyers. This isn’t your 2017-18 Flyers. Heck, this isn’t the past six years’ Flyers. This is a confident bunch that entered Saturday night’s game outshooting, out-chancing, and outworking the opposition game-in and game-out.

When I went back to rewatch the third period this morning, my wife looked at the score with just over nine minutes remaining and uttered, “I thought you said they blew out Columbus.” With both teams skating 4-on-4, captain Claude Giroux whipped the puck to Shayne Gostisbehere, who waited in the slot an absolutely buried a one-timer past Joonas Korpisalo for the team’s third goal of the game and Ghost’s first of the season:

 

With just under seven and a half minutes remaining, the offensive zone face-off worked its way to the blue line, where it was swung to Jake Voracek, then to defenseman Ivan Provorov, who got the puck into the left circle, unleashed the puck with all of his might, and pinged it off James van Riemsdyk, who was credited with his second tally of the evening to tie the game at 4:
