Wayne Simmonds picked up a goal and an assist in Wednesday's 4-3 win over the Detroit Red Wings.

Simmonds' power play goal at the 10:48 mark of the second period tied the game at two. He then registered the primary assist on Sean Couturier's game-winning goal with just over 14 minutes remaining in the game. Simmonds has 11 goals and 21 points in 34 games this season.

Wayne Simmonds posted an empty-net goal with an assist and a game-high eight shots on goal in Wednesday's 4-2 victory in Edmonton.

Simmonds has notched goals in back-to-back games for the first time this season. He was certainly feeling it on the offensive end, as the shot total was also a season high, too. In fact, his previous best was just five shots, so he was skating hard in Edmonton. He'll look to carry over the momentum into Thursday's game in Vancouver. Simmonds has no goals and two assists in four contests in the second end of a back-to-back set this season.

Wayne Simmonds found the back of the net in the Flyers' 5-2 win over Calgary on Monday.

Simmonds has eight goals and 15 points in 27 contests this season. That puts him on pace for about 45 points, which is a bit below expectations for Simmonds, but we think he can still end up above the 50-point milestone in 2017-18.

Wayne Simmonds will play with Claude Giroux and Sean Couturier on Monday night.

The Philadelphia Flyers could get nothing going offensively in a 3-0 loss to the Boston Bruins.

Giroux broke the shutout bid but the goal was overturned after it was deemed Wayne Simmonds interfered with Rask. Simmonds ended up finishing the game a minus-1, with three shots on goal and five minutes of penalties for fighting Kevan Miller. Simmonds has 14 points in 26 games this season.

If Philadelphia does not improve then Wayne Simmonds could become decent trade bait for GM Ron Hextall to kick-start a rebuild.

The Flyers have underachieved, having won just 28 of their last 73 games. Simmonds is on a team-friendly contract, making under $4-million per year and is approaching his 30th birthday. If the Flyers can't get their season on track, the 30-goal scorer in need of a raise after next season could be swapped for future building blocks.

Wayne Simmonds isn't panicking over the Flyers' 8-8-4 start to the campaign.

While that's not a disastrous record, it does put the Flyers in last place in the Metropolitan Division at the season's quarter mark. They need to improve going forward if they are to make the playoffs. "The season's not even close to being over," Simmonds said. "That's the way I'm thinking about it, guys. There's no need to be worried, we're a .500 hockey team right now, we've played 20 games, we have 62 games left, we've got a really young team and we're growing every single day. Yeah, we're going to have our struggles, but we're also going to have points in the season where we make huge strides. We've got to stick with it and we've got to keep going and going." It's worth noting that the Flyers have lost their last four games. If they can bounce back from that slump promptly then they'll be in a good position, but it's also possible that this current cold streak could snowball.
