The Flyers have fixed a flaw, and it has helped vault them into the thick of the Eastern Conference playoff race. Up until late January, the Flyers struggled in games against lowly teams. But they have corrected that weakness. Their three wins to start the current homestand were against teams not in playoff spots: Minnesota, Arizona, and Calgary. In their last 10 games against non-playoff teams, they are 7-1-2. Despite having to overcome several injuries, the Flyers entered Tuesday just three points behind the final wild-card team, Pittsburgh, with 20 games remaining.

Schenn collected the first hat trick of his career and Claude Giroux recorded four assists as the Flyers defeated the Calgary Flames, 5-3. Calgary made it interesting as Micheal Ferland and Michael Frolik scored 50 seconds apart to cut the deficit to 4-3 midway through the third period. Michal Neuvirth got a piece of Frolik's shot, but it still got through. "It got a little scary in the third.

Brayden Schenn and Luke Schenn are more than brothers. They are best friends, and both say they miss being Flyers teammates. Funny thing is, their play has been elevated - especially Brayden's - since they were separated Jan. 6, the day the Flyers dealt Luke Schenn to Los Angeles.    In his first 22 games since the trade, Brayden Schenn looked noticeably more confident and had nine goals and eight assists - his best streak of the season. Brayden Schenn was asked if his increased productivity was because he was taking on more responsibility with his brother not around.
