The Flyers have scored four goals or more in seven of their last eight games, and they have moved into a tie for 18th in the 30-team league, averaging 2.55 goals per game.
In the season's first five weeks, the Flyers were at the bottom of the league - or near it - in scoring. They were averaging just 1.47 goals in their first 15 games, and seemed a threat to the all-time franchise-low: 2.29 goals per game in 1968-69.
Winger Matt Read apparently took a hit to the head and left Tuesday's 4-1 victory in Calgary in the first period. He did not return. The injury is not serious, general manager Paul Holmgren said. He listed Read as day-to-day.
