from Sam Carchidi of Broad Street Bull,
The Flyers played without emotion and dropped a 5-2 decision, slipping into 14th place in the 15-team Eastern Conference, seven points behind the Rangers, who sit in the eighth and final playoff spot.
The Flyers should have played each shift with desperation because their playoff lives are hanging by a thread.
Instead, they showed all the life of a department-store mannequin while losing for the seventh time in their last nine games.
In short, they played like they can’t wait for the regular season to end.
Afterward, the quotes coming from the losers’ locker room were damning. Many Flyers said they weren’t ready to play.
Again, how can that happen when so much was at stake, when the Flyers had a chance to climb within three points of a playoff spot with 16 games left?

from Frank Seravalli of the Philadelphia Daily News,
The overall math is simple. The Flyers are almost guaranteed a playoff spot with an 11-4-2 run in their final 17 games. A mark of 11-5-1 will give them a strong chance. They have a prayer at 9-4-4 or 10-5-2. And they're toast at 9-5-3 or worse. This season, it's not necessarily about the Flyers' overall record...

Darren Dreger of TSN reported that the Philadelphia Flyers and the Anahiem Ducks are linked in trade talks. Dreger claimed that the Ducks are looking for a center, which could be Sean Couturier.
On Monday night's Trade Centre, Dreger said:
"Keep an eye on Anaheim and the Philadelphia Flyers. Not saying Bobby Ryan is on the trade block, but it...
This is the team the Isles are most likely sticking with at the treade deadline. If this is what theyâve got, then they had better show what they can do under the tough situation of playing at the Wells Fargo Center against a team with a worse record than they have looking to save face.
The Flyers are in a spot theyâre not accustomed to: 14th in the East. Their loss...
