The Philadelphia Flyers may not have gained much ground in the standings, but they have certainly gained some respect league-wide as they went 4-0-0 this week and beat three of the best teams in the National Hockey League in the Pittsburgh Penguins, the Chicago Blackhawks, and the St. Louis Blues. The Flyers are not a lock to make the playoffs yet, but if they continue to play the way they have over the past eight days, they have as good a shot as any to really make some noise in the annual spring tournament. This team has definitely stepped up their play at the right time.
