Michael Raffl is on a four-game point streak.

Raffl kept that run going by registering an assist in the Flyers' 4-2 win against Toronto on Tuesday. This hot streak has been a deviation from the norm this season as he still has just five goals and eight points in 30 contests.

Travis Konecny scored a goal in Philadelphia's 4-2 win over Toronto on Tuesday.

Konecny snapped his five-game point drought. The sophomore has four goals and 10 points in 30 games this season. He has offensive upside, but we can't recommend grabbing him yet if you're in a single-season standard league.
Dec 13 - 5:21 AM

Sean Couturier registered two points, including the game-winning goal, in a 4-2 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs on Tuesday night.

Couturier's game-winner in the third period was his first of the 2017-18 season. He had two all last season, so he's halfway to matching that total. Couturier, overall, has 15 goals and 30 points in 30 games this season.

Jori Lehtera will be a healthy scratch in Tuesday's game against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Lehtera has two assists and a minus-5 rating in 17 games this season. He's been a huge disappointment since being acquired from the Blues this summer. Mark Alt will also serve as a healthy scratch in this one.

Brian Elliott is expected to get the start in Tuesday's game against the Maple Leafs.

Elliott has a 9-6-6 record with a 2.79 goals-against-average and a .912 save percentage this season. He's been off since Thursday so he should be fresh for this one. Elliott has won three games in a row and captured the NHL's third star of the week for the period ending Dec. 10.

Flyers GM Ron Hextall wants people to keep Nolan Patrick's rookie campaign in context.

Patrick, who was taken with the second overall pick in 2017, is off to a quiet start with two goals and six points in 20 contests. That pales in comparison to some of the other rookie performances we've seen in recent years, like that of Auston Matthews and Patrik Laine, but it doesn't mean that Patrick has been a disappointment. There have been incredible players that started with quiet rookie campaigns, like Joe Thornton, who had three goals and seven points in 55 games. "People forget this stuff," said Hextall. "These guys are young kids. It’s why some players need time in the minors. It’s a process. It’s hard to go out 82 times against 25, 30-year-old men and play. It’s demanding as hell. People don’t realize that." That's important to keep in mind when thinking about Patrick's long-term potential, but if you're in a single season league then there's not much reason to own Patrick at this time.

Michael Raffl has been thriving on the second line since his promotion from a bottom-six forward.

Raffl scored all three game winning goals on the Flyers trip to Western Canada this past week. The winger is now playing alongside Valtteri Filppula and Jakub Voracek as coach Dave Hakstol moved Voracek down and Wayne Simmonds up to the first unit to get some more scoring. It's working as the Flyers are on a three game winning streak after not finding the win column in their previous 10 games. Raffl has five goals and seven points in 29 games so he still has to show some more on the ice to be fantasy-worthy.

Radko Gudas has finished serving his 10-game suspension for slashing the Jets' Mathieu Perreault on November 16th.

He will eligible to return for the Flyers' next game Tuesday against Toronto. Gudas, who is only a fantasy asset in leagues that value penalty minutes and hits, may return to the lineup a little more subdued following his suspension. That may be a good thing for the Flyers but not for his fantasy owners.
Dec 9 - 11:24 AM

T.J. Brennan has been sent to the minors.

Brennan was called up on Wednesday, but he didn't end up getting into a game with the Flyers. He has two goals and 15 points in 17 AHL games this season.
Dec 8 - 12:50 PM

Michael Raffl has scored the game-winning goal in each of the Flyers' last three games.

That's a pretty remarkable accomplishment, especially for a player that doesn't typically contribute offensively. Even after his three-game goal scoring streak, Raffl still has just five goals and seven points in 29 contests this season.

Brian Elliott made 36 saves on 37 shots en route to a 4-1 win over the Vancouver Canucks on Thursday.

Brian Elliott has now won his last three starts. His record now improves to 9-6-6 with a 2.79 GAA and a .912 save percentage.

Jakub Voracek recorded three assists in a 4-1 victory over the Vancouver Canucks on Thursday night.

It's the Czech forward's second three-assist effort in three games, and third overall for the season. He had a hand in three of the four Flyers goals against Vancouver. Following an embarrassing 10-game winning streak, the Flyers have rebounded to win their last three in a row. Voracek has seven goals and 37 points in 29 games this season.

Brian Elliott will get the start in Thursday's game against the Vancouver Canucks.

This will be Elliott's third start in four nights (he was also between the pipes last night). He has an 8-6-6 record with a 2.88 goals-against-average and a .909 save percentage this season.
Dec 7 - 8:42 PM

Jakub Voracek registered an assist in the Flyers' 4-2 win over Edmonton on Wednesday.

Voracek has only been held off the scoresheet once in his last four contests. He's up to seven goals and 34 points in 28 games this season. That puts him in a five-way tie for fifth place in the NHL's scoring race.
