Schenn-sational effort propels Flyers over Jets

With Matt Read scheduled to miss six weeks, the Flyers knew that the offensive contributions had to come from other places.

The Flyers answered the bell as the likes of Brayden Schenn and Jakub Voracek led the team to a 5-3 win over the Winnipeg Jets on Saturday afternoon.

With 11:03 left in the third period, Schenn worked his magic. Schenn received the puck and dished a gorgeous backhand pass to Wayne Simmonds for the slam dunk goal to give the Flyers a 4-3 lead.

It was their first lead of the game and ended up being the game-winning goal. Zac Rinaldo added an empty-netter as time expired.

Back-to-Backs Prove to Be Frustrating For the Flyers

The shortened season has certainly had an effect around the league this year.

Players have been getting hurt and the fatigue factor has been settling in despite not even being half way through the season. The biggest factor in the fatigue has been all of the back-to-back games being played.

They've been especially hard on the Flyers, who fell to 2-4-0 in those games after getting drubbed 5-2 at the hands of the Panthers on Thursday.

A part of the lackadaisical performance could be attributed to the emotionally-charged 6-5 win in Pittsburgh the previous night. The trip itself between the Steel City and Philadelphia wasn't exhausting.

Huber-dos: Panthers Rookie Scores Twice in Rout of Flyers

It was the Jonathan Huberdeau Show in Philadelphia Thursday night, and the fans weren't too thrilled to watch him perform.

The Panthers 19-year-old rookie scored a pair goals, chasing Ilya Bryzgalov from the game en route to a 5-2 win for the Panthers. He also added two assists to complete a four-point night.

The opening 10 minutes resembled much of the game last night against Pittsburgh. But this time the Flyers didn't have a quick enough answer for the Panthers and it set the tone for the loss.

Vora-Trick: Jakub Voracek's Hat Trick Wins Game for the Flyers

It was Rival Night on NBC, and the Flyers and Penguins delivered.

Jakub Voracek's hat trick goal proved to be the game-winner in a wild 6-5 victory for the Flyers at the CONSOL Energy Center in Pittsburgh. The game featured lead changes and blown leads,

The opening 10 minutes of the first period looked to be damning for the Flyers.

Playing completely flat-footed against a faster team almost spelled their early demise. Pittsburgh scored two quick goals, and possibly a third, jumping out to a 2-0 lead and 12-2 shot advantage.
