The Hawks will face the Flyers for the first time this season, and the seasons couldn’t have started differently for the two teams.

Flyers avoid shootout in comeback win in Dallas

The Flyers were sick of losing in the shootout.

After the last two overtime losses for the Flyers left them with frustrations in the skills competition, they were looking at a potential third straight shootout. But Claude Giroux scored 2 minutes, 49 seconds into overtime, completing a comeback 6-5 win.

It was the first win of the season for the Flyers. They avoided going winless in the first five games of the season for just the third time in franchise history with the win.

2014-15 Flyers Preview: Forwards

The Flyers are going to rely on a balanced offense this season with the woes coming on the back-end. How fast the offense can start up this season will be key.

The first month of the season won’t be easy either. The Flyers begin their first week with back-to-back games in Boston on Wednesday and home on Thursday against New Jersey. The rest of the month is harder than running the gauntlet with games against Montreal, Anaheim, Dallas, Chicago, Pittsburgh, Detroit, Los Angeles and Tampa Bay.

Mason Returns; Steals Show In Game 4

Imagine Steve Mason as Robin Hood: stealing from the rich and giving to the poor.

Now imagine Henrik Lundqvist as a king, which shouldn't be too hard to do. If the Flyers were going to steal a game from Lundqvist and the Rangers, it was going to happen with Mason in net.

Mason made his first start in two weeks, stopping 37 shots in the process of beating the Rangers 2-1 on Friday. It evened the series and gave the Flyers new life heading into New York.

Flyers Tie Series With Four-Goal Comeback

It is said as a general rule that the first goal after a 2-0 lead is the most crucial. Jakub Voracek's monumental late first period goal sparked a comeback resulting in a 4-2 Flyers win over the New York Rangers. As a result, the series is tied at one apiece heading into game three.

As had been the largest story coming into this series, the Flyers snapped a nine-game losing streak at Madison Square Garden in comeback fashion.

Luke Schenn capped off the furious comeback by tapping home a rebound past a sprawled Henrik Lundqvist halfway through the second period. On a delayed penalty, Adam Hall collected a Michael Raffl pass and shoveled a shot on goal that popped right on Schenn's stick. No Ranger would score after that goal was scored.
