A week ago, the Flyers were riding high after wins in six of their last eight games. Two games this weekend changed all that.
The Flyers followed a sloppy 4-3 loss to the Blue Jackets with a sloppier 6-3 loss in Montreal against the Canadiens.
There were points there for the taking in both games. The Flyers trailed the Blue Jackets by a goal for almost all of the third period. The Flyers entered Saturday's third period against the Canadiens down one as well. But Montreal out-scored the Flyers, 3-1, in the third, easily earning the win.
