Wayne Simmonds and the Flyers were put through the wringer on Saturday in the team's first practice under coach Dave Hakstol.
"It's a battle," Simmonds said. "I think that's the way practice should be all the time. We ramped it up on Day One, and it was really intense, so that's a good taste of what we're obviously going to be getting for the rest of the year. The guys seem to thrive under that, so it was a good practice." The Flyers believe they can return to the playoffs this season and Hakstol has upped the pace at training camp to help achieve that goal. Sep 20 - 9:47 AM

Wayne Simmonds is hoping to hit the 30-goal mark in 2015-16.

"Thirty is a definite goal for me," he said. "I've come close a couple of times. As long as we're winning games and making the playoffs, I really don't care how many I get." Simmonds recorded 28 goals in 2011-12, 29 in 2013-14 and he hit 28 last season. He'll probably get close again this campaign, with plenty coming by way of the power play.
