A three-game road trip comes to an end on Saturday night as the Flyers face the Ottawa Senators and a familiar face on the opposition. It will be Claude Giroux's first game against his long-time former team.
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.
