Philadelphia Flyers Look To Stop Slide Tonight Against Toronto Maple Leafs

The Philadelphia Flyers are not worried by their recent skid, but would like to change the team's home struggles Monday night against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

After winning three straight to begin the season, the Philadelphia Flyers have now lost three out of four. Entering Monday night's home tilt against the Toronto Maple Leafs at 7 p.m., the recent skid does not have the Flyers too worried.

"We're seven games in," captain Chris Pronger said yesterday, laughing. "I don't think anyone is pushing the panic button. We knew it was going to be a work in progress with this team. We weren't going to go 82-0."

With Saturday's 4-2 loss to St. Louis, the Flyers fell to 1-2-1 at home and have been outscored 16-11 at the Wells Fargo Center. In contrast, they are undefeated on the road (3-0-0).

"We didn't have the same consistency that we did on the road," Pronger said. "That's a problem. As much as we are road warriors, we need to be homers."

Toronto (5-1-1) has stormed out of the gates, led by Phil Kessel, the NHL leader in points (14).
