VOORHEES — Flyers coach Dave Hakstol says it’s a little early to look at the standings and that may be for the best considering recent events.

In the midst of the first nine-game win streak since 1995, the Flyers haven’t shot all the way up to the top of the league. Everyone else in the Metropolitan Division is going streaking, too.

“We’re trying to gain points every night and that’s why I don’t make too much of however many number in a row,” Hakstol said. “One way or another, you’re just trying to gain points every night. The first goal on the list is to be a playoff team and points every night are critical.”

Entering Tuesday’s action the Flyers were third in the division with 39 points and had played the most games in the Eastern Conference.

“It kinda sucks that everyone is hot at the same time, but at the same time we’re keeping pace with everybody else, which is great,” goalie Steve Mason said. “We want to continue this and hopefully continue this streak longer than anybody else here. We do have more games played and we want to keep building the points here.”
