Does anybody want the final wildcard spot? In short, no.
The Flyers had the opportunity to close to within two points of the final wildcard spot on Tuesday night by facing the Carolina Hurricanes, a team only ahead of the Buffalo Sabres in the Eastern Conference. Again, the Flyers turned in a familiar result.
A 4-1 loss to Carolina continues to show the inconsistency of the Flyers as the season progresses and playoff hopes draw thin. The unfortunate part is that the Flyers can't shed hope with the playoff picture being as it is.
