Things are looking pretty grim for the Philadelphia Flyers after Saturday’s gruesome 6-2 loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets.

The Flyers are just 2-5-3 in their last 10 games; only Anaheim, Calgary, and San Jose have been worse in their last 10. And, after occupying a playoff spot since early December, the Flyers are not out of the picture.

They’ll need a lot of things to go right after being leapfrogged by Pittsburgh, Detroit, and New York in only a week. The latest Flyers playoff odds agree.

At the time of this writing, FanDuel Sportsbook has the Flyers playoff odds at +450. The implied odds are 18.18%, and that indicates that this race is likely over for the Flyers soon.

Moneypuck sees things a little more optimistically for the Orange and Black as they give the Flyers a 27.1% chance of making the cut. Taking things one step further, their odds will increase greatly with a win against Montreal on Tuesday.

Their odds will jump to 39.91% with a regulation win, and they will have a modestly lower 38.76% chance with an overtime win. A Flyers regulation loss would spell the end of this race, bumping them down to just 10.1%.

With their win against Buffalo on Sunday, Detroit has advanced into the last wildcard spot in the Eastern Conference with 84 points and five games left. Pittsburgh is right behind them with 83 points and five games left.

The Flyers are also right in there, but both Detroit and Pittsburgh have games in hand. A Pittsburgh regulation loss would give them the exact same record as the Flyers, but they hold the regulation wins tiebreaker.

The difference between the two is that one team is playing its best hockey of the year, while the other has been abysmal for five weeks running.

It’s not over for the Flyers yet, but they have to start winning games, and fast.
