+9: The Flyers goal differential through five games this season. Sure, it was boosted by a 7-2 win against Ottawa and everything, but it's still the best number in the NHL.
Close on the Flyers heels in this department: Detroit (+8), Washington, Buffalo and Colorado (+7). The Senators are -14 already. Ha.
