Flyers Notes: Philly Getting Production from Everywhere

There has been a familiar theme during the Philadelphia Flyers’ recent surge: Contributions from all four lines.

One or two players from each of the top three lines have been on hot streaks, and even the fourth line has contributed as the Flyers have won seven of their last eight games and climbed to within six points of a playoff spot.

PHN: Fans Have Mixed Reaction to Flyers’ Surge

Owen Tippett and Morgan Frost have been hot on the top line, while Travis Konecny and Joel Farabee have carried the second line. Noah Cates has’t been too shabby, either, on the latter unit.

Scott Laughton has carried the third line lately (and gotten support from Kevin Hayes and Wade Allison), and Nick Desaluriers, Patrick Brown, and Zack MacEwen have had good moments on Line 4. They combined for 14 hits in Philly’s 3-1 win Saturday in Washington.

Flyers’ notes

Here are some of the team’s individual numbers, along with other notes:

  • Konecny has points in 10 of 11 games, during which he has scored 12 goals.
  • Laughton has four multiple-point games in his last eight contests.
  • Frost has six points (1-5) over his last five games.
  • Farabee and Tippett have also picked up the pace. Farabee has seven points (3-4) in his last five games, while Tippett has eight points (3-5) in his last eight games.
  • Wade Allison has three goals in his last five games, and Kevin Hayes has seven points (1-6) in his last six contests.
  • Defenseman Tony DeAngelo has 11 points (3-8) in his last 10 games.
  • The Flyers have won five straight road games, their longest in four years.
  • While winning seven of their last eight games, the Flyers have averaged four goals per contest. They have outscored their opponents, 32-18, in that span,
  • Carter Hart, who had 39 saves Saturday, has a 10-4-5 record when facing 30 or more shots this season.
  • On Monday in Boston, the Philadelphia Flyers will try to avenge a 4-1 loss to the Bruins on Nov. 17. Konecny was injured in that game, and the Flyers lost their fifth straight in what turned into a 10-game losing streak. The B’s went 2 for 4 on the power play. For the Flyers to have a chance, their much-improved PK needs a stronger performance.
