Whatever was said during that players-only closed-door meeting that the Philadelphia Flyers had recently, it is working. In the two games that the team has played this week, it is already apparent that there is a change to this team. It looks like they are more together as a unit, and are really starting to click on the ice.
It all started last Saturday, when team captain Claude Giroux finally scored his first goal of the season. It was about time, and the momentum did wonders for the team. It didn’t really stop there either.
The rest of the team built off of this as they went on to annihilate the Ottawa Senators in a 5-0 victory. The offense was starting to click as a team more in this game, as multiple Flyers scored those goals. Jakub Voracek did score twice, and Scott Hartnell attempted to give him a chance at a hat trick, but they could not follow through. Matt Read, Vincent Lecavalier and Brayden Schenn were among the other scoring leaders, which should not be that much of a surprise. All three are worthy of their spots on the team, and have been showing that they are ready to turn up the heat for the team.
The Flyers showed again that their offense is starting to set things in motion, when the won their third straight game in a row. Even better since it was a 2-1 win against the Pittsburgh Penguins, in Pittsburgh. Since they are the Flyers biggest rivals, it is always such a sweet victory.
