The dejection of Thursday night's lackluster loss to the Oilers turned back into jubilation on Saturday.
And when the star of the game is Radko Gudas, then it means a pretty good night of hockey.
Gudas picked up his first two goals as a Flyer in a four-point night that helped the Flyers get back in the playoff race by gaining two points on the Penguins, who lost earlier in the day, with a 6-0 drubbing of the Columbus Blue Jackets.
Radko Gudas had a career night with two goals and two assists. Michael Raffl, Sam Gagner, Claude Giroux and Nick Cousins all scored. Steve Mason made 19 saves and the Philadelphia Flyers defeated the Columbus Blue Jackets by a score of 6-0 on Saturday night in Philadelphia.

The Philadelphia Flyers (29-23-11) hit the ice for an important matchup with the Columbus Blue Jackets (27-30-8). This is the fifth game of a six game homestand for Philadelphia. The Flyers are 3-1-0 through the first four games. Game time from the Wells Fargo Center is 7:00.
This is the third of four meetings with Columbus this season. The Blue Jackets have beaten the Flyers in both games this season. They easily dispatched of the Flyers 4-1 in Philly in early December and followed that up with a shootout victory in Columbus a little over a week later
