Philadelphia Flyers Headed West For Tough Road Trip
The long, grueling schedule of an NHL season can take a toll on teams sometimes. So far this season, the Philadelphia Flyers haven’t really had to deal with that problem. However, that’s all about to change with the Flyers’ next road trip.
The west coast road trip will carry six games in a span of 11 days for the boys from Broad Street. The frequency of play isn’t the only thing Philadelphia should be worried about, though. The Flyers are set to take on some of the Western Conference‘s elite.
The Flyers will square off against the likes of the Vancouver Canucks, Colorado Avalanche and Phoenix Coyotes. All three Western Conference powerhouses are currently in playoff position, and it’s certain that they have no intentions on letting the Flyers stand in their way.
Philadelphia had already suffered losses to the hands of Vancouver and Phoenix back in October, but this time they are hoping for a different result.
The Flyers have already proven that they struggle against some of the league’s worst this season. Having already lost seven games to teams with losing records, the Flyers look to get back on track and earn some easy victories against some less worthy opponents.
The upcoming road trip is the longest on the Flyers’ schedule this season. Look for Philadelphia to play well enough to make it seem like their shortest.
