The Flyers have lost 14 of their last 17 games and only Carolina has fewer points in the NHL. Expected to contend for the Stanley Cup, Philadelphia has lost its scoring touch. They've scored two or fewer goals in six of the past seven games.
Hard to believe now, but the Flyers started the season 12-5-1. A coaching change hasn't helped. Peter Laviolette is 2-7-1 since replacing the fired John Stevens on Dec. 4.
They are 1-13 when trailing after two periods - an ugly number for a team captain Mike Richards said last week played with no heart.
