“I think we’re starting to play pretty good, decent hockey,” Flyers forward Simon Gagne tells KYW Newsradio. “Especially the last two games at home, big win against Boston, maybe one of the top teams in the conference. After that, play back-to-back against Washington, being down by two goals, coming back and tying the game late in the third and finding a way to win the game in overtime, getting two extra points.”
The Flyers are 2-1-1 on this homestand, but with 33 points, they still sit six points out of the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.
“The only way we have to go, is play one game at a time, not looking too much ahead,” Gagne says. “You want to make sure to look at the standings every night, see where you’re at. But we know that if we play some good hockey, and at the end of the night we play our best hockey we’ve got a better chance to get the two points at the end.”
