Friday we took a look at what the Eastern Conference playoff matchups would be like if they started right now. Today we are going to take a look out west. There is at least one surprise team currently holding down a playoff spot, but if they can stay there is yet to be seen.
Between the team Hall of Fame inductions for John LeClair and Eric Lindros on Nov. 20, and Eric Desjardins on Feb. 19, it seems as if one of the small, yet underlying themes of the Flyers' 2014-15 campaign is celebrating greats who have suited up for the organization.
Another week has come and gone and for the Flyers, there were many contributors.
This week, our player of the week is Sean Couturier. Couturier has points in his last six games, but really elevated his play this week, scoring two goals and adding two assists for four points in three games.
Our play of the week comes from Saturday's win over the Hurricanes. What better play to give the honor to this week than Scott Laughton's first NHL goal, a beautiful shot off the far post past Anton Khudobin. You can see the goal below.
Check back next week as we pick another player and play of the week.
