Simon Gagne on the Flyers, Tuukka Rask between the pipes...where have we seen this before? Consider this the week from hockey hell for the Flyers. After having to face the Rangers - and falling with little effort in a 4-2 loss - the Flyers had the Penguins down and out. They failed to finish and lost that game too. It has been the mantra of the 2013 Philadelphia Flyers: another two points lost. But keep in mind this team has 23 games remaining to simply get into the playoffs. They made the Stanley Cup Final in 2010 by getting in on the last day. The Los Angeles Kings won the Cup by being an eight-seed a year ago. Perhaps that's the story of the Flyers. But a lot of work would need to be done to see it through. To say the Flyers have struggled of late is an understatement. Aside from the first period against the Pens on Thursday, they haven't even shown up lately. That's the perfect formula to be playing with headed to Boston for their first meeting of the season with the Bruins...
