Danny Briere's first trade as Flyers GM was a blockbuster, moving Ivan Provorov in a three-team trade and acquiring three players and three draft picks. It backed up Briere's "open for business" comments ahead of a busy offseason.
Since returning from the injury on Dec. 1, Travis Konecny has points in eight of 10 games, including a two-goal showing on Tuesday night as the Flyers claimed a 5-3 win over the Columbus Blue Jackets at Wells Fargo Center.
The 2022 slate of games at Wells Fargo Center closes with one more contest on Tuesday night. The Flyers will take on the only team below them in the Eastern Conference standings, the Columbus Blue Jackets.
The Flyers were winning games early in the season behind great goaltending and timely goals. Now they are losing games because the bad habits within their game and the lack of scoring talent is catching up to them in a hurry.
On Thursday night, the Flyers hit the road to face another team at the bottom of the standings and locked into a lengthy losing streak. The Columbus Blue Jackets have lost five straight games dating back to Oct. 23, including both games in their trip to Finland last weekend.
