The Flyers still got four of a possible six points this week, and they sit at .500 as October starts to wind down. Scott Laughton and Robert Hagg have been among standouts for the Flyers in the early going. Laughton is taking advantage of injuries within the forward corps (James van Riemsdyk and Nolan Patrick, notably),...

Travis Zajac and Last Season’s Momentum

After a positive start to his season with 2 goals against the Edmonton Oilers in the opener, today we look at whether Travis Zajac will continue to build off of this or revert to the form he showed at the start of last season.

Fans said it all from “Zajac looks done” to discussion of regretting his...
