The Flyers have not won back-to-back games since March 27 & 29. In the 10-games after their previous 10-wins, the Flyers are just 1-9-0.

In those 10-games, the Flyers have fallen behind & given up the games first goal in 7 of the 10-games. Holding leads in just 4 of those 10-games.

“When you get that first goal, I feel like it kind of energizes the team and the bench a bit,” forward James van Riemsdyk said. “It takes a lot less energy, or at least it feels that way to play the right way when you have the lead like that verses chasing down games.”

After exploding for 7-goals last night against the Penguins, the Flyers look for the same energy tonight. Look for their 6th straight win vs the Penguins in Philadelphia.

“Think we were just faster, fresher than them and that’s why we won the game,” forward Jake Voracek said. I’m sure they’re going to come out way harder and more prepared in tomorrow’s game.”
