Tampa Bay's franchise-record winning streak saw a Ghost on Monday night at the reverberating Wells Fargo Center. Shayne Gostisbehere scored two goals - setting a franchise record in the process - as the Flyers rallied past Tampa Bay, 4-2, and moved closer in the Eastern Conference playoff race. "It's a fun ride," Gostisbehere said, "and I want to keep the ride going. " With 12 minutes, 39 seconds left, Gostisbehere scored from the right circle, one-timing a blast to give the Flyers their first lead of the night, 2-1. It ended the Flyers' 0-for-15 power-play slump and gave Gostisbehere 14 goals, setting a franchise record for a rookie defenseman.

With five weeks left in the regular season, the Flyers have 18 games to show whether they belong in the Stanley Cup playoffs. Those 18 games will also help determine the team's MVP, which is too close to call at the moment. Below are my leading candidates, in order. But, remember, things could change dramatically by the time the regular season ends April 10 against the New York Islanders in Brooklyn. Shayne Gostisbehere Stats (entering Saturday): 45 games, 12 goals, 23 assists, 35 points, plus-3.

After the Flyers' dispiriting 4-0 loss on Thursday to the Edmonton Oilers, the team needed an offensive lift. Who would have thought that defenseman Radko Gudas would provide it? Not exactly a scoring machine, Gudas totaled six points in his first 57 games before adding four on two goals and two assists as the Flyers routed the Columbus Blue Jackets, 6-0, on Saturday night at the Wells Fargo Center. The Flyers are now just three points behind Pittsburgh for the second Eastern Conference wild-card spot, with both teams having 18 games remaining.

The Flyers continued to make lowly Edmonton look like the Gretzky-era Oilers on Thursday night at the boo-happy Wells Fargo Center. Cam Talbot recorded his second shutout of the season as the Oilers jolted the Flyers, 4-0, and ended their three-game winning streak. Coupled with Pittsburgh's win over the Rangers, the Flyers fell five points behind the Penguins. Talbot made 35 saves, and the Oilers killed all seven Flyers power plays. "We didn't show up from the start of the game," right winger Wayne Simmonds said.

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.

The puck wasn't glued to Brayden Schenn's stick Monday night at the Wells Fargo Center. It just seemed that way. 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.

The Flyers might get leading scorer Claude Giroux back for Saturday's matinee against visiting Arizona, but they will be without their No. 2 scorer, Jake Voracek. Giroux said he felt "pretty good" Friday after participating in his first practice in Voorhees since he was injured eight nights earlier in Montreal. "He had a good day, so we'll see where it goes," general manager Ron Hextall said. "There's a chance he'll play [Saturday]. " A few hours later, Hextall announced that Voracek (48 points)

RALEIGH, N.C. - Brayden Schenn said the return of center Sean Couturier was "like picking someone up" at the trade deadline. After a nine-game absence, Couturier returned to the Flyers' lineup Tuesday night against the Hurricanes. Couturier, sidelined with an injured right foot/ankle, centered Michael Raffl and Jake Voracek. "Having him back is huge," defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere said after the morning skate. "I don't think you realize how much you miss him until he's actually gone.
