The Flyers are now on a four-game winless streak and fading at the wrong time.
One week ago, a loss was actually a moral victory. The Flyers had skated 65 minutes with the Boston Bruins. It was encouraging to see the Flyers hang with the NHL's best.
Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Bruins had a different vibe, especially when coupled with Thursday's loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets. The Flyers are a fading team and have to watch their backs.
This is not the same team that had other teams talking. Remember the win against the Blues? Remember the talk about how the Flyers were playoff ready? This team looks ready for an early exit from the playoffs.
