Coach Dave Hakstol switched up Wayne Simmonds and Jakub Voracek in practice Monday.

Simmonds was on the wing for Sean Couturier and Travis Konecny while Voracek moved back up and will play alongside Claude Giroux and Brayden Schenn. The top-two lines are a combined minus-38 and the Flyers need to get better to have a chance at the post-season. "We have to get our consistency back," Simmonds said. "We have to make sure we're doing the right things - limiting the turnovers, and some of the brain [locks] we've had without the puck. I think our game with the puck has been very good, but some of the things without the puck we can improve on." Simmonds leads the Flyers with nine goals and has 16 points in 19 games. Not too shabby.

Wayne Simmonds had two assists Sunday.

Simmonds is on a four game point scoring streak and has 11 in 10 games this season. He broke a string of four straight games in which he was a minus-player and is now minus-four this season. Nevertheless, he should be in your lineup as he is a great source of points and penalty minutes.

Wayne Simmonds has scored in each of his last four games.

Simmonds is the prototypical power forward in the NHL these days as he had 32 goals, 60 points and 147 penalty minutes last season. This year he has four goals and five points with eight penalty minutes in five games. He better be on someone's roster in your fantasy pool.

Wayne Simmonds scored a power play goal in Thursday's 3-2 loss to the Anaheim Ducks.

Simmonds finished a pretty passing play, as Claude Giroux found Jakub Voracek with a cross-ice pass before Voracek got the puck to Simmonds, who was standing near the goal mouth. Simmonds has now found the back of the net in three consecutive games. The 28-year-old is coming off a 32-goal season and he should be able to hit a similar number if he stays healthy.
Oct 20 - 10:30 PM

He finished the game with a plus-1 rating, two penalty minutes, three shots on goal and four hits in 15:31 of ice time. If he stays healthy, the Flyers forward should come close to the 30-goal mark this season.
