Philadelphia needed the first month to get things in gear and has been nearly unstoppable since. The Flyers are deeper up front and along the blue line than anyone in the East, and they've had the goaltending to go with it. Good thing, too, because they still take too many penalties. But rookie goalie Sergei Bobrovsky has been a great find, and he's getting a lot of help from a team that is getting offense from several different places. Meanwhile Claude Giroux is having a breakout season. Grade: A+
