BLAZING BULLIES

The Flyers have been hot!

They entered a 6 game road trip with a record of 17-16-4; halfway through the trip, the Flyers are now 20-16-4 with 44 points after winning three straight away from the Wells Fargo Center (EDM, VAN, CGY). In their last ten games, the Flyers are 7-2-1 currently riding a four game winning streak.  (7-1-1 since Raffl has moved to the top line.)

Tonight (9pm) they face off against the Colorado Avalanche (24-11-4) who are 4-2-4 in their last ten games.

Former Flyer Max Talbot faces Philadelphia for the first time since he was traded away on November 3rd for Steve Downie who also returns to face his former team.

Matt Read will not play tonight although his injury (upper-body) is said to be non serious. According to coach Craig Berube, they’re “giving him another day.’  Steve Downie is expected to see more ice time; however, Jay Rosehill will play after being a healthy scratch the last 9 games.

The Flyers have three road games left on the schedule before returning home on January 8th; two more stops on the west coast (Colorado and Phoenix) and one on the east (New Jersey).

Individual stats are as follows:
