Philadelphia possesses a 30-18-7 record with 67 points heading into the new week. They’ll continue on this crucial stretch of games by hosting the Florida Panthers at the Wells Fargo Center on Monday. Hopefully, the Flyers will walk away with another huge two points against a team that’s also on the Eastern Conference playoff bubble.
