The Flyers season has been a roller-coaster ride of what could have been and what will probably never be. The Orange and Black have had stretches of great potential, where they play inspired hockey and then go cold and show listlessness.
The last time the Flyers faced the Winnipeg Jets, it was one of their statement games. Trailing 3-1 in the third, the Flyers rallied around rookie goalie Rob Zepp to force overtime and win, 4-3, in what was the second of three straight wins to start a crucial road trip.
It is over a month since that game, and the Flyers are now on home ice looking to extend their winning streak to three games on Thursday night as they host the Jets. The opening face-off is set for 7 p.m.
