Flyers are still playing well

The funny thing is, this team hasn’t had a hard time scoring this season without the power play. Last year, this was one of their biggest struggles. So far, they are 11th in the league in scoring. They’ve scored 32 goals so far and are only eight away from the Detroit Red Wings, who sit atop the league.

Travis Sanheim – through his first 10 games last season – had one assist. Right now, he’s already managed to rack up 10 points. Konecny has picked up from where he left off last year with eight goals in 10 games. That’s tied for third in the league, and just one goal away from the NHL lead. Cam Atkinson isn’t far behind with six of his own.

In fact, despite going 1-3-0 on this homestand, the Flyers were only outscored 25-20. The Flyers fell to Carolina because of a late goal. They went toe-to-toe with Buffalo until a third period collapse that ensued following Carter Hart’s injury.

Overall, Philadelphia has played well, and they are working their tails off. The shots aren’t going in, but the Flyers aren’t afraid to shoot. At some point they will find their way into the back of the net. Have patience.
