For the past several weeks, the Flyers have consistently stated that they believed they could still be a playoff team. All the while, they were inconsistent in trying to prove it.
Sunday night, they proved they certainly have life in the race.
The Flyers followed a dominant win on Saturday in Toronto with a dramatic 4-3 overtime win against the Winnipeg Jets, starting an eight-game road trip with two wins.
But it was the players who contributed to Sunday's win that made it that much more important to the Flyers comeback effort. Vincent Lecavalier scored twice. The fourth line fueled the comeback. Rob Zepp made his debut in goal and made 25 saves, including what his teammates would call a game saver.
The Flyers 4-0 blanking on home ice of the Tampa Bay Lightning may not conjure up any vivid memories to many Flyers fans. However, for goaltender Brian Boucher, it was a memorable night. This would be his first shutout of his young NHL career.
