A weekly feature where we round up the Power Rankings from around the hockey media and see where your Philadelphia Flyers stand...
|Outlet||This Week||Last Week||What They're Saying|
||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 following the Flyers 5-1 loss on Saturday.|
||Flyers' power play (two for 22) needs to get going. Defensemen could be helping more.|
||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 ||5.2 |
