The Flyers will try to avenge one of their ugliest losses of the season Sunday afternoon when they host arguably the NHL's best team, the Boston Bruins. Boston is on a 14-0-1 run and hasn't lost a road game in regulation since Jan. 9, a 4-2 defeat in Los Angeles. The Bruins scored three power-play goals, chased starter Flyers goalie Steve Mason, and rolled to a 6-1 win when the teams met at the Wells Fargo Center on Jan. 25. "Obviously our last game against them wasn't as planned," captain Claude Giroux said.

WAYNE SIMMONDS could tell something was a different with Claude Giroux yesterday. He was a little more quiet than usual. After being conspicuously absent during Wednesday's romp by the Rangers, save for a last-minute assist that only prevented another Henrik Lundqvist shutout, Giroux was just a tad more focused than he's been during this concentrated turnaround. With the Toronto Maple Leafs as a perfect reminder of what could happen when two losses turns to three, Giroux wanted to right the ship.

Winger Wayne Simmonds is right: The Flyers have put themselves in a good spot, and, with nine regular-season games left, they do control their playoff destiny. Considering the disastrous manner in which the season started, that's an amazing development, one for which the Flyers deserve credit. But their great turnaround - they are 38-20-7 since their franchise-worst 1-7 start - won't mean a thing if they don't have a strong finish and secure a playoff spot. The Flyers know that, know they must continue to be a hard team to play against, know they have created some good chemistry the last several months.

A day of rest recharged the Flyers, especially on the power play Friday night. One night after coach Craig Berube gave his weary team a day off, the Flyers responded and, led by captain Claude Giroux, ended a two-game losing streak, outlasting the Toronto Maple Leafs, 4-2, at the Wells Fargo Center. Giroux, who climbed into third place in the NHL scoring race with 78 points, had a goal and two assists as the Flyers moved to within a point of the second-place Rangers in the Metropolitan Division, as New York lost, 4-3, in Calgary.

Perhaps because his captain, Claude Giroux, said the Flyers looked tired in their 3-1 loss to the New York Rangers on Wednesday, coach Craig Berube gave his team an unscheduled day off on Thursday. No practice. No work in the weight room. No need to get up early. Berube wanted the Flyers to get some rest because they appeared oddly lethargic in the last two periods of such an important game Wednesday. They were outworked along the boards, usually second to the puck, and rarely had traffic in front of Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist.

NEW YORK - There is something about Madison Square Garden that brings out the worst in the Flyers. It happened again Wednesday night as they were defeated by the New York Rangers, 3-1, in a second-place showdown that produced the Flyers' eighth straight loss at the Garden since 2011. The Flyers, who seemed oddly lethargic for such a key game, have been outscored, 31-9, in the eight Garden losses. "We got away from what was making us successful," losing goalie Steve Mason said.

ONE YEAR AGO, Michael Raffl was living in near anonymity in Leksand - a quiet town of just 5,934 residents in the middle of freezing Sweden. Raffl led his Swedish Elite League team in scoring, but had not yet popped up on the NHL radar. Time was running out. He was already 24 years old, reaching the age where few players aren't considered "prospects" anymore. "You should have seen that place," Raffl said. "There was nothing going on. I couldn't even go to dinner at night, everything closed early.

For the Flyers, recent history at the Garden has been more about thorns, less about roses. Entering Wednesday's second-place showdown against the New York Rangers, the Flyers have lost seven straight at Madison Square Garden since 2011, getting outscored, 28-8. "It's a tough building. I don't know what it is about it," center Claude Giroux said after Tuesday's practice in Voorhees. "We'll have to make sure the first period is our best period and go from there. " The Rangers scored three goals in the first 9 minutes, 24 seconds in their 4-1 win over the visiting Flyers on Jan. 12. The Flyers are coming off Monday's 3-2 loss to Los Angeles.

MARK STREIT held the puck on his stick at the blue line and tried to dance around a defender. Seemingly all 19,876 inside the Wells Fargo Center were screaming "Shooooot!" in unison - with 7, then 6, then 5 seconds on the clock - yet none of the Flyers on the ice seemed to hear them. Streit dished to Jake Voracek on his right, who tried to sidestep one sliding Los Angeles King, before threading a cross-ice needle to the waiting stick of Claude Giroux. Sensing that time was running out, Giroux shoveled a half-hearted attempt at Jonathan Quick.

MIKE RICHARDS and Jeff Carter come back to Philadelphia for the first time as a duo and it is impossible not to look back, and to wonder. It is a waste of time, of course, the wondering - but sometimes you can't help yourself. What if they had not been traded? What would this team look like? "I think it's a long time ago," Claude Giroux was saying. "A lot has changed since. I think there's only four guys on the team who were there in 2010. So a lot has changed. We have a new look in the Flyers' organization.
