Flyers Ready For Playoffs?

 

Even though the Flyers lost to the Los Angeles Kings on Monday night 3 to 2. The Flyers still remain a top team.  It appears that after the horrendous start to the season, where we saw the Flyers start the season 1-7 the first eight games.  Along with, firing their head coach Peter Laviolette, the Flyers have really rebounded. While the season has had its ups and downs, the Flyers appear to look as a big threat with the playoffs just around the corner.

 

The Flyers have 11 games remaining in their schedule. Right now, they are currently in 3rd place in the Metropolitan division. but that could change after the Flyers face-off against the N.Y Rangers tonight. With every team fighting for a point in the Eastern Conference, the Flyers cannot let up. The Rangers, Capitals, and Blue Jackets are all fighting for points for playoff contention.

 

The past few games have really shown that the Flyers are a force to be reckoned with. The Flyers beat the Pittsburg Penguins back-to-back games, a win against the former Stanley Cup champions from last year the Chicago Blackhawks, a win against the ailing Dallas Stars, and took down the NHL’s best team the St. Louis Blues. The Flyers have a tough remaining schedule with the majority of the teams they face in playoff contention.

 

Philadelphia Flyer fans have to be happy with the results the team has put up since the start of the season. The Flyers are one of the only teams in the NHL right now that has a balance offense, with 7 players who have 15 or more goals in the season. Probably the brightest spot the Flyers have shined in is, the goaltending of Steve Mason. Mason has rebounded from his bad days in Columbus and now boast a record of 30-16-6 with a save percentage of .916 and 4 shutouts. If the Flyers can keep winning, provide consistent offense, and Mason continues to play at the level he is playing at. The Flyers are going to be positioned to be one of the best playoff teams.
