Whether it is an excuse on what happened in January, the Flyers have been regrouping and trying to find their winning ways again, while losing their number one goaltender to the Hockey Canada scandal.

One of the more important parts of their season that needs to turn around is their home record. In the past 50 games, they have gone 11-12-2 which is unacceptable for a team trying to make the playoffs.
Once the Flyers get back to their defensive ways and have their goaltending stabilized, it's expected the Flyers to get back on track and secure their first playoff spot in three seasons.
