Simmonds Quietly Having Another Fantastic Season With Philadelphia

Everyone's focus has been on the level of play brought to the ice by Jakub Voracek and Claude Giroux.

Both are the top two point-getters for the Flyers, and both have garnered a lot of attention for their speed, goal scoring and prolific passing. Their 25 and and 22 points respectively along with Scott Hartnell's play have made them one of the most dangerous top lines in the NHL.

Not lost in the mix of scoring has been second line winger Wayne Simmonds, who shares time with Voracek and Giroux on the top power play unit.

Simmonds has nine goals on the season, tied with Voracek for the team lead. He is fourth in points with 17.

Flyers Struggle to Get to the .500 Hump Again; Lose to Toronto, 4-2

Getting to .500 has been an uphill battle for the Flyers and it continued on Monday against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

An absolute sluggish outing until the final half of the third period cost the Flyers a chance to even up in the standings and get some much-needed points. And though the Leafs were almost equally as sluggish, they came out with the 4-2 win in Philadelphia.

Perhaps the Flyers are pressing to get to .500, but whatever it is, the effort was poor once again. Head coach Peter Laviolette didn't think they were pressing though.

JvR Returns to Philadelphia as the Flyers Host the Maple Leafs

Former Flyers winger James van Riemsdyk returns to Philadelphia for the first time since being traded this off season for Luke Schenn. He already has a goal against his former team back in Toronto and he is looking for more.

Scott Hartnell's Return Had His Team Pumped Up

Flyers forward Scott Hartnell may not have registered a point but his return was a welcome addition to the lineup.

Hartnell had five shots, a hit, and had two penalties in the Flyers' 5-3 win over the Jets. He played 14:54 of ice time which was sixth on the team in terms of that category.

The Flyers winger didn't shy away from his usual game of crashing the net and wreaking havoc on opposing goaltenders.

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.
