A look at the Flyers October schedule and the way the first three games have played out brings a frightening though to mind.
Last season, the Flyers started the season 1-7-0 in eight games. For the second straight season, the Flyers have opened with three straight losses after a 4-3 shootout loss to the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday night.
It was a game where the Flyers led 3-0 following two periods. There were two points easily within their grasp. They managed one. With the type of schedule facing the Flyers in October, points cannot be given away.
