Kevin Hayes, Philadelphia Flyers

There are two ways to look at the Philadelphia Flyers’ recent action.

Glass half full: The Flyers have points in three of their last four games.

Glass half empty: The Flyers have lost three straight.

Philly (20-21-9) will play its final game before the All-Star break when it meets the Jets (31-18-1) in Winnipeg on Saturday night.

The Flyers need a win to feel good about themselves going into the break. After Saturday, they don’t play again until Feb. 6 against the visiting New York Islanders.
