PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — As they enjoy the All-Star Break, the Philadelphia Flyers sit in second place in the Atlantic Division with a 29-14-5 record, which is good for 63 points.
They are three points behind the first-place New York Rangers.
The Flyers have enjoyed this success despite numerous injuries to key players and inconsistent goaltending from starter Ilya Bryzgalov. But on the plus side, they have gotten wonderful contributions from several rookies and an absurdly good first half from All-Stars Claude Giroux and Scott Hartnell.
KYW’s Matt Leon caught up with Sam Carchidi, the Flyers’ beat writer for the Philadelphia Inquirer, to talk about the Flyers at this point in the season and what he expects down the stretch.
