Wayne Simmonds has been dropped to the second power play.

He was replaced on the top unit by rookie Nolan Patrick. "I wasn’t playing well and I’ve got to do better," Simmonds said on Thursday. "I’ve got to be a better player. Patty’s done a great job in front of the net when he’s been in front of the net this year so he got two huge goals and got us back into the game. I feel no way about it. The kid’s a great player and he deserves everything he’s getting." Simmonds will play alongside Travis Konecny and Oskar Lindblom with Ivan Provorov and Travis Sanheim on the points as the Flyers meet Pittsburgh in the battle of Pennsylvania in the first round of the playoffs.

Simmonds has no goals and two assists in four contests in the second end of a back-to-back set this season.
