Mark Streit led the way in pre-season scoring with eight points in only four games.

Streit had a good season in 2013-14 when he had 10 goals and 44 points but he got off to a rough start at the beginning of the season as he had only one goal and 10 assists in his first 32 games before his offense took off. "It was a big adjustment last year," he said. "When you spend five years somewhere and then you change, it's a different locker room, different guys. But the guys made the adjustment easy for me. Everybody was great, and the city is great, but at the same time I needed time to feel out the locker room and the leadership group. As the year went on, I started feeling better and better and finished real strong." Look for big things from the 35-year-old blueliner as he could hit the 50-55 point mark because he will quarterback the power play now that Kimmo Timonen is out.

Mark Streit filled the stat sheet for the Flyers in Monday's 5-4 preseason win over Washington.

The veteran defenseman scored a goal and dished out three helpers in an impressive offensive performance for the Flyers. Brayden Schenn, Vincent Lecavalier, Jakub Voracek and Andrew Gordon also tallied for Philly in the victory. Goaltenders Rob Zepp and Ray Emery each played about 30 minutes between the pipes to get their first taste of preseason action.

Mark Streit's first goal of the playoffs was all the Flyers could manage against the Rangers in Game 3, as Philadelphia fell 4-1 to New York on Tuesday night.

The Flyers outshot the Rangers 32-23, but the offense did not spark despite the home crowd "boost." Jakub Voracek and Claude Giroux notched the assists on Streit's goal, as the Flyers will try and bounce back on Friday night.

Mark Streit found the back of the net in the Flyers' 4-2 win over Dallas on Thursday.

Mark Streit thinks that his native Switzerland could surprise a lot of people at the Olympics.

The Swiss are not considered one of the favorites but Streit is looking forward to the tournament. "Swiss hockey has come a long way the past 10, 12, 15 years," Streit said. ". . . We did excellent at the last world championships. It will be a different competition, but I think we can play with a lot of confidence." Streit has been very good of last as he has eight goals and 29 points this season after getting off to a terrible start offensively.
Feb 9 - 7:57 AM

Flyers defenseman Mark Streit has picked up his play during recent games and, if he's available by any chance in your fantasy league, it might be a good time to grab him.

Signed by Philadelphia as a free agent in the summer after spending the last four years with the Islanders, the 36-year-old Streit has overcome a slow start. He says it was a matter of acclimating himself to a new team and a new system. Streit is 10th among NHL defensemen with eight goals - he is tied with P.K. Subban and Drew Doughty, among others - and has 29 points. Streit has 10 points in his last 13 games. "I feel really comfortable now on the ice," said Streit, who will play for Switzerland in the Olympics. "I'm playing with a lot of confidence. I'm moving now, using my legs, and I'm shooting the puck a whole lot more. Definitely at the beginning [it took a while]. New city, new teammates . . . and maybe it took me a little longer than I was wishing for."
Feb 8 - 10:45 AM

Mark Streit scored a goal for Philadelphia in a 3-1 win over the Avalanche Thursday.

Feb 6 - 10:14 PM

Mark Streit had two assists in Philadelphia's 5-0 win over Detroit.

Mark Streit recorded an assist in a 5-2 defeat on Thursday.

Streit's cold start to the 2013-14 campaign is firmly behind him. He has six goals and 24 points in 52 contests this season and he should be able to roughly maintain that pace. In other words, we think he'll flirt with the 40-point mark.
Jan 24 - 8:24 AM

Mark Streit scored his sixth goal of the season in a 4-1 loss to the New York Rangers Sunday.

Streit's power play marker was ultimately academic, as it did little more than break Henrik Lundqvist's shutout. Vincent Lecavalier and Sean Couturier picked up assists on the goal.
