Weekly Buzz: A Relatively Average Week For The Flyers

This week’s serving of Philadelphia Flyers news and links from around the web.

The illustrious six-game road trip didn’t end off on a positive note like we all wanted, as the Philadelphia Flyers fell to the Carolina Hurricanes in overtime. The good news is that our guys are now home and beat the Washington Capitals. How exciting! Unfortunately, the same couldn’t be said against the Tampa Bay Lightning, who seems to be a pretty darn good hockey squad.
