Let’s get real. The Flyers are puzzling! After losing 10 straight games, they’ve started winning games again. To dissect this team and what we can expect in the future, we brought Bill Matz from the Broad Street Hockey Radio podcast on board with us this week. We get into the offense, defense and goaltending ups and downs.
But first, on the Brief News & Views segment:

What we’re throwing down on the Table this week is an interview and discussion with Bill Matz from the BSH Radio podcast about how the Philadelphia Flyers are performing on the ice. How have the line changes impacted this team, and will Jakub Voracek continue with his elite production? We also dove into the play of Shayne Gostisbehere as one of the best offensive defensemen in the NHL. Should the Flyers look to make a trade soon, and what should be done to get rookie Nolan Patrick going? Also, a look to the future salary cap and what the Flyers front office may do to give this team a spark down the road. All of this and much more this week on the Table! (41:30)
