The Flyers have not gone more than two consecutive games this season without having their victory song - Mac Miller's "Knock, Knock" - blaring through their locker room. Consistency has been their trademark, especially on the road, where they own a league-best 13-3-2 record. Led by Claude Giroux's four-point return from a concussion, they snapped a two-game skid with a methodical, 4-1 win in Dallas on Wednesday. Cue the music.
