Saturday signaled the one-week mark of the beginning of the end for the Flyers. Last Saturday, the Flyers were 15 seconds away from moving within two points of the Boston Bruins for the final playoff spot.
One week later, the Flyers are now 10 points back of that spot. On Saturday afternoon, they welcomed the Detroit Red Wings to town. Detroit is currently third in the Atlantic Division.
You wouldn't have known it by the play on the ice. It marked the 10th straight home win for the Flyers against Red Wings, who are still in search of their first win at Wells Fargo Center since the 1997 Stanley Cup Final after Saturday's 7-2 shellacking.
