For several weeks, the Flyers have been playing the league's best teams on a consistent basis. The next two games present an opportunity to earn some points against some of the league's worst teams. It starts on Monday night with a game in Detroit against the last-place Red Wings.
If Thanksgiving is the marker for being in a playoff position, the Flyers did more than just settle for being among the contenders at the holiday. They padded the margin and made a move further up the standings to cap off a historic month.
The Flyers finished Friday's game strong with Sean Couturier scoring with 11.9 seconds remaining in the second period to give the Flyers a two-goal lead. Three goals in the third period capped off a 6-1 win over the struggling Detroit Red Wings on Friday afternoon at Wells Fargo Center.
