Warning: Next nine games look brutal for Flyers

Slumber party!
Slumber party!

Don't look now, but over the next few weeks, we might learn exactly the kind of Flyers team we have this season.

Over the course of their next nine games, the Flyers will play seven teams ranked 6th or higher in their respective conferences. They will play six games against teams currently ranked 5th or higher in their conferences, and they will play both teams currently at the top of each conference.

It all starts Saturday against Boston.

There are only two games in this upcoming stretch against non-playoff teams, and the teams have a combined record of 146-87-18. The rest of December will likely tell us a lot about these 2010-11 Philadelphia Flyers.
