The Flyers enter Thursday’s game having won eight of their last 10 games, while the Chicago Blackhawks are among the worst teams in the league.
In a 7-1 rout by the Tampa Bay Lightning, the Flyers losing streak reached eight games, with now three of those losses coming at the hands of the back-to-back champs. And the takeaways from this one are pretty simple. It can’t be much longer before more changes start coming. There isn’t much more to say about the play on the ice that hasn’t already been said during this streak. A season that was all about making the playoffs and getting back to winning has become the opposite in a hurry.
Sunday’s game didn’t go any better than the previous seven games, as the Lightning struck early and often in a 7-1 result at Wells Fargo Center.
