It wasn’t pretty, and against another of the NHL’s bottom-feeder teams, the mistakes being made and the habits continuing to take center-stage are still troubling. But the Flyers also have strung together wins and points, and that’s what was needed against these teams. Now they need to continue to form better habits and apply it, perhaps as soon as next week against some tough Metro Division competition, if the schedule allows.
The Flyers face off against the 30th-ranked Ottawa Senators on Saturday night. But don't be fooled, the Senators have won five of their last seven games, including convincing wins over Tampa Bay and Florida in the last week.
The bad blood between the Flyers and Ottawa Senators was still fresh from a game just eight days earlier, so when the teams met on March 5, 2004, it would become a historic night in a very different way.
The rematch between the Flyers and Senators after a heated matchup two weeks ago has been highly anticipated, and the Flyers hit the road to face the Senators for the final time this season on Saturday.
The Flyers came away with the 4-3 win over the Senators on Saturday afternoon, but perhaps something bigger than just two points. It was just another example of a team that continues to show a closeness and ability to overcome adversity that wasn't there in the past.
