Some things never change. Flyers have already taken more penalties than anyone else in the league.

The Flyers have been grounded: 11 goals and only two power-play goals in five games won't get it done.

Quick start to the season for veteran forward and Pierre LeBrun favorite Daniel Briere. He has four goals in first five games. Interestingly, though, a stacked Flyers offense is ranked 23 in goals per game early on.

The Flyers dropped two of the three games they played in Week 2, giving the club only two wins in its first five games. Philly's power play production in the first two weeks of the season has been atrocious, connecting only twice in 22 chances.

Losses to Lightning, Pens underscore Flyers’ lack of discipline

The usually dull Mike Richards had some choice words for Matt Cooke and the Pittsburgh Penguins following the Flyers 5-1 loss on Saturday.

Here's Flyers captain Mike Richards on Matt Cooke: "Yeah, I was chasing him around last year in this building and he wouldn't have anything to do with it. I guess if Sidney Crosby fights [Dan] Carcillo, maybe I'll be able to fight him." Richards just won himself a few fans in Boston with that little Cooke jab.

A one-goal loss to Tampa Bay in Simon Gagne’s return and blowout defeat at the hands of the Pittsburgh Penguins has the Flyers falling in the rankings this week.

Flyers' power play (two for 22) needs to get going. Defensemen could be helping more.

A month ago, Sergei Bobrovsky was a blip on the Flyers' depth chart. Five games into the season, injuries and soft competition moved him into a starting role. He's been decent enough, but it looks as though word has gotten out about the vulnerability of his five hole. Bob has plenty of potential, but if he's still the starter in a month, it probably says more about the team's shortcomings at the position than his rapid development.

The Flyers suffered a third period collapse in dropping a 5-1 decision to Crosby and the Pens.

Fortunate enough to have rookie G Sergei Bobrovsky help fill in with Michael Leighton out, but D Chris Pronger isn't back to full speed from off-season knee surgery and LW Nikolay Zherdev's early returns have been minimal (one goal in five games).

Certainly it’s early, but this rookie goalie Sergei Bobrovsky looks like he might be someone to keep an eye on.
Average 14.6
