Last week, the Flyers won two of their three games, including a nice win against the Sabres and a 9-2 blowout against an overmatched Blue Jackets squad. But Philadelphia can't be all satisfied after losing a mid-week shootout to division rival New Jersey.
The Lightning (7-5-2) and Panthers (6-4-3) present a decent challenge. Tampa Bay has a potent offense, ranking fifth in the NHL is goals per game and 11th in power play efficiency. That could be a nightmare if Flyers goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov has one of *those* games.
Of course, the Flyers are scoring more than any team in the NHL. They can handle a shootout.
