The Philadelphia Flyers are officially fun again. This lovable bunch plays hard, and they consistently find ways to win.
I love the swagger that Kevin Hayes brings to this team–I love to see TK chirping opposing players–I also love watching the young talent that is on display every night.
For example, Joel Farabee has shown glimpses of his potential in recent weeks. Farabee has had four goals, four assists in his last 11 games. Nicolas Aube-Kubel has come on as of late as well. Not to mention the continued development of their young blueliners Philippe Myers, Travis Sanheim, and Robert Hagg.
The goalie tandem of Carter Hart and Brian Elliott has been solid, the position is far from the liability it used to be in years past.
Alain Vigneault has done a great job at the helm so far. It is crazy to think this team is now in contention for a Division Title. Let’s hope this all leads to the team winning a playoff series, something they have not done since 2012.
