FLYERS CONSUME SHARKS
Bringing a playoff-like intensity to every shift of the game, the Philadelphia Flyers attained one of their most satisfying wins of the season as they tore through the San Jose Sharks by a 5-2 count at the SAP Center last night. Philadelphia limited the Shark attack to 22 shots, generated 28 shots of their own and rode a four-goal outburst in the third period to victory.

OPPORTUNISTIC OFFENSE, STELLAR GOALTENDING LIFT FLYERS IN LOS ANGELES
Quantitatively speaking, all wins are created equal. They add two points in the standings. Qualitatively, some wins mean more than others. Likewise, when a team records a shutout, sometimes it's more of a team shutout -- yielding few quality scoring chances -- and sometimes the goaltender has to really work hard for it.

FLYERS MAKE JUST ENOUGH MISTAKES TO LOSE TO ANAHEIM
The Philadelphia Flyers came to Anaheim knowing that they had scant margin for error against the team with the best overall record and top home record in the National Hockey League.

BACK IN MOTION, FLYERS SKATE TO 5-0 WIN
The Philadelphia Flyers are no different from any other hockey club: They become a much tougher team to play against when players keep their feet moving and pay attention to detail. Good goaltending, of course, is another key component of success.

BRISK PRACTICE ON SUNDAY, DAY OFF TODAY
On the heels of Saturday's 6-1 trouncing at the hands of the Boston Bruins that extended the team's winless streak to four games (0-3-1), the Flyers held a high-tempo practice yesterday at the Skate Zone before heading over to the Wells Fargo Center for the annual Wives' Carnival.
The hour-long session featured a lot of skating-intensive work. Althoug
Excerpt from: Bill Meltzer
In the wake of yesterday afternoon's 6-1 trouncing the reeling Flyers received at the hands of a relentless Boston Bruins team, I did a lot of thinking about what goes into the making of losing streaks and ugly losses.
All teams experience adversity over the course of the season. Part of what separates top clubs from the pretenders -- almost as much as the collection of talent on the roster --
