With 10 games remaining on the schedule, it remains to be seen if the Flyers take this win and turn it into some magical last-gasp playoff run that gets them in, but it kept their playoff hopes alive for now.
If the Flyers are able to make up the five-point margin in the standings and make the playoffs, it would be a historical comeback to reach the postseason. If they don’t, well, this run is still remarkable nonetheless.
The weekend provided fodder for many different topics as the trade deadline approaches, from the Flyers acquisition of Cam Talbot, to Wayne Simmonds' deadline fate, to signs of a possible moving on from Shayne Gostisbehere.
Saturday's game was certainly not be design, but the Flyers stayed with the game and found a way to rally back and win in overtime, defeating the Oilers, 5-4, in overtime. It has them up to seven straight wins and surging.
