The Flyers hit rock bottom with a listless 5-1 defeat in New Jersey on Wednesday night, losing ground on one of the teams they are chasing in the Eastern Conference playoff hunt.
It was s stunningly poor effort, considering the importance of the game.
They are 11th in the East with a 12-15-1 record — the most losses in the NHL — and they are playing without confidence, without an edge.
They have scored one even-strength goal in the last 11 periods, and their goalie’s save percentage has dropped to .896 and his goals-against average has climbed to 2.86.
