Through two periods, the Flyers were seemingly doing everything that would be viewed as a positive this season. The effort…
A pair of comeback attempts were not completed, as the Columbus Blue Jackets scored on a 3-on-1 in overtime to hand the Flyers a 5-4 loss on Tuesday night.
The Flyers scored three goals in the second period and never looked back, as Felix Sandstrom secured his first NHL win in goal in a 5-1 victory over the Blues on Tuesday night at Wells Fargo Center.
After making 17 saves on 19 shots in the first period, Carter Hart made another 31 saves in the final two periods to close out a 4-3 win over the Panthers, setting a career-high with 48 saves on the night.
The Flyers’ three-game winning streak to start the season was snapped at the hands of the Panthers, who scored two goals in the third period to claim a 4-3 decision on Wednesday night.

The game group the Flyers will send on the road for their fourth preseason game against the Boston Bruins on Saturday afternoon offers a healthy mix of veteran players and young players locked in roster battles. Puck drop is at 1 p.m.
The Flyers continue the preseason on home ice, facing the Washington Capitals on Wednesday night.
A roster of young hopefuls takes on the Boston Bruins as the Flyers open the preseason at 7 p.m. on Saturday night.
The NHL Draft has come and gone, blink and you missed free agency. The final piece of the Flyers offseason outlook is to focus on line combinations for the upcoming season.
With the 2021-22 season now over for the Philadelphia Flyers, it’s time to review in a four-part series focusing on what moves they should make this offseason.
The Flyers took a 4-1 loss to the Minnesota Wild to close out the 1-4-0 road trip, also knocking them out of playoff contention for the second straight season.
The Avalanche used a four-goal first period to set the tone, as the Flyers were handed a 6-3 loss on Friday night.
After scoring with under five minutes to play to tie the game, Brett Pesce got the game-winning goal with 18 seconds left in overtime to hand the Flyers a fifth straight loss, 4-3, at Wells Fargo Center.
Things fell apart in the final eight minutes of the third period for the Flyers. They allowed two goals in 18 seconds as the Penguins tied the game, then Kris Letang scored the game-winner in overtime in a 5-4 defeat on Tuesday night.
The Detroit Red Wings took the lead in the second period and never looked back, finishing off a 6-3 result on Wednesday night at Wells Fargo Center.
The law of averages essentially caught up to the Flyers. Out of the break, they were lucky to get a win in Seattle and stole a point in San Jose. Deservedly, they have nothing to show for a defeat that featured more sloppy play, more poor puck management, and continued lapses in defensive coverage.
Injuries, COVID, and everything else aside, the Flyers are not clicking the way they need to. They may be turning the corner in terms of results, but they may be turning into a head-on collision with some of the best teams in the league still ahead on the schedule.
One night after getting the win in overtime, the Flyers didn’t get the same fate on this night. Tomas Hertl scored on a rebound with 30.8 seconds remaining to hand the Flyers a 3-2 loss to the San Jose Sharks on Thursday night.
After stopping six shots for the Panthers to start the 3-on-3, Martin Jones couldn’t stop a one-time blast from Aaron Ekblad in a 2-1 overtime loss for the Flyers on Wednesday night.
The Flyers are proving that this roster is not equipped to get the job done. Maybe that has to do with the system, maybe that’s talent, but if they wanted to avoid another purge, things needed to improve. For everyone’s sake, it had better start on Wednesday, because this is going to become an ugly season quickly, and it’s only Thanksgiving.
The Flyers are having to survive the opposition more than driving play. They clearly have flaws in their play, and it’s fair to wonder how much longer they can go without addressing them.
