Welcome to another installment of Flyers Trivia. Last week we did a Who Am I profile of a former Flyer player. Today we will do a few questions. When we do multiple questions there will be a category. Today's category is Nicknames.

It was pretty hard to find a positive note on the Flyers last week after a 4-0 loss in Chicago. A listless team took the ice that night.
In the last three games, the Flyers have showed the signs of success while facing the most adversity. They are missing arguably their top defensive pair. They played Saturday without four members of the opening night lineup. And in that time, they have gone from four points in the standings to 10.
The Philadelphia Flyers looked as solid as we've seen them as they defeated the Los Angeles Kings in overtime on Tuesday night. Michael Raffl, Chris VandeVelde, and Brayden Schenn scored for the home team, while Tyler Toffoli and Mike Richards lit the lamp for Los Angeles. Ray Emery was nothing short of magnificent in goal, stopping 38 of 40 shots. True to form, LA's Jonathan Quick was also on top of his game, stopping 3 of 43 shots.

The Philadelphia Flyers (3-3-2) will try to make it three in a row tonight when they welcome the Los Angeles Kings (6-1-1) to the Wells Fargo Center. Los Angeles is riding a winning streak of their own however, winning their last six. This is the first of two meetings this season. Game time is 7:00.
