FLYERS START HOMESTAND THE RIGHT WAY

Beginning a four-game homestand that is critical to efforts to climb out of a hole in the Eastern Conference and Metropolitan Division standings, the Philadelphia Flyers posted a tidy 4-1 win over the injury- and illness-depleted New Jersey Devils at the Wells Fargo Center on Thursday night.

The Flyers did a good job of accomplishing the task at hand. T

Last night in Columbus, Brayden Schenn's second goal of the night came with 56 seconds left in the third period to forge a 2-2 tie.

SIMMONDS HEATING UP ON ROAD TRIP

The Flyers' four-game road trip, which took the team through games against all three California-based NHL clubs and concludes tomorrow night in Columbus, has thus far been a glass half-full or half-empty proposition. The team is 1-1-1 on the trip but just as easily could be 0-2-1 (with the overtime/shootout loss and regulation loss games reversed) or 3-0-0.

MASON STONEWALLS LA TO END FLYERS WINLESS STREAK

Bernie Parent in his prime couldn't have done it any better than Flyers goaltender Steve Mason did yesterday in LA. In a 2-1 win, Philadelphia led most of the way but spent most of the final 40 minutes hemmed in their own end of the ice. Thankfully for Philadelphia, Mason was in his "Stone Cold" mode reminiscent of his 35-save shutout of the Kin

Laughton a Bright Spot in a Dark Time

It is not hard to compile a list of things that are going wrong with the Philadelphia Flyers this season. It's a lot tougher to find things outside of Jakub Voracek and Claude Giroux's assist and point totals that are going right.

If you read Eliotte Friedman's latest 30 Thoughts column at TSN, it is filled with things that are not pleasant to read from

FLYERS BLOW LEAD, SALVAGE A POINT IN SHOOTOUT LOSS IN ANAHEIM

In a wild game marked by sloppy play, strange bounces and counter-attacking offense from both sides, the Philadelphia Flyers were simultaneously fortunate not to lose in regulation and unlucky not to get two points from Wednesday night's game in Anaheim. Ultimately, the Ducks prevailed via shootout, 5-4.
