It may not make a difference in saving their season, but wins are wins at this point. The Flyers will certainly take them in an effort to see if they can right the ship, especially as the schedule lightens up in the next few games.
A pair of goals by James van Riemsdyk paced the Flyers offense, as they claimed back-to-back wins for the first time since Oct. 27 and 28, defeating the Arizona Coyotes, 5-3, on Saturday night.
The Flyers close out a three-game road trip in Arizona to face off against the NHL’s last-place team, the Coyotes.
The Flyers stayed the course, overcoming a questionable overturned goal call and a tight contest between a team desperate to get their first win. They finally broke through in the third, and their goaltender did the rest.
Carter Hart was once again a key reason the Flyers were in position to win on Tuesday night. Only this time, Hart was on the right end of the result, doing more than just getting the win, but nailing down a 29-save shutout in a 3-0 Flyers win over the Arizona Coyotes.
The Flyers had a successful 2-1-0 road trip, but had their first lackluster game of the season on Saturday in Calgary. They will be looking to bounce back from that result. The Coyotes have struggled to start, still in search of their first win of the season. As such, the Flyers have to avoid a similar game to Saturday and playing down to the opponent.
It took all of 30 minutes following the end of the roster freeze for the other 31 teams in the NHL for Chuck Fletcher to make another trade. This one served a key purpose for the Flyers, because without it, not only were they limited in what they could continue to do with the roster ahead of the coming season, but they also wouldn’t even be able to fill all of the roster spots necessary.
The Flyers have traded defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere, plus a 2022 second-round pick and 2022 seventh-round pick to the Arizona Coyotes. While Arizona sent nothing in return to the Flyers in terms of a player or pick, they did absorb all of Gostisbehere’s $4.5 million cap hit.
The Arizona Coyotes had more than enough to earn the win with a three-goal first period, and the Flyers lost their third straight by a score of 6-2 in Arizona on Saturday night.
The Flyers take on the Arizona Coyotes on Saturday night in the final game on the West coast during their six-game road trip.
Winning streaks in the NHL don’t last forever, especially with so much parity in the league. But now the challenge for the Flyers is to not let one loss sink them and put them into a slide after building some solid ground early.
Darcy Kuemper was excellent all night and stymied the Flyers until the final five minutes of the game. The Coyotes 2-0 lead was cut to one with 4:43 to play, but it was enough to end the Flyers winning streak at five games in a 3-1 loss to Arizona at Wells Fargo Center.
The Flyers look to extend their winning streak to six games on Thursday night when they face the Arizona Coyotes.
The Flyers have traded forward Jordan Weal to the Arizona Coyotes for defenseman Jacob Graves and a sixth-round pick.

Some typical flaws showed up again on Thursday night and nearly cost the Flyers two points. Instead, a frantic rally and another game-winner in overtime from Ghost earned two points in a wild win over the Arizona Coyotes.
The Flyers trailed 4-2 entering the third, but rallied back to force overtime, where Shayne Gostisbehere scored the game-winning goal to give the Flyers a 5-4 win over the Arizona Coyotes on Thursday night.
The first game of a five-game homestand comes against the same team the Flyers faced to close out the road trip on Monday. The Arizona Coyotes had their five-game winning streak snapped by the Flyers, and come to Philadelphia for the back end of a home-and-home.
Two goals from Claude Giroux were part of a three-point night for the captain as the Flyers completed a successful road trip with a 5-2 win over the Arizona Coyotes.
The fourth and final game of the Flyers road trip comes against the Arizona Coyotes in the first of a home-and-home between the two teams. The Coyotes have been an upstart team, picking up wins in five straight games.
With the Philadelphia Flyers recent struggles, the team is hoping to start something big after a 3-2 win against the Anaheim Ducks.
