Flyers Notes

Philadelphia Flyers captain Claude Giroux leads the League with eight assists and has at least a point in six straight games, but isn’t happy with his play. His minus-5 stands out to him as an area for improvement.

What to Watch For

Ekman-Larsson scored two goals against the Devils and leads NHL defensemen with four goals. … Konecny has points in five of seven games this season and scored his first NHL goal Tuesday. He’s tied for the rookie lead with five assists
