After another embarrassing loss, is it time to worry about the Philadelphia Flyers?
After jumping out to a 5-3 start, the Philadelphia Flyers seemed to be working their way to being one of the top teams in the Eastern Conference, especially after scoring 13 goals in a two-game span at home. However, the Flyers have taken a tumble for the most part since that start by only winning three of their next 10 games.

The latest embarrassment for the team has gone down over the last couple of days with back-to-back losses to the Minnesota Wild, one of which was a 3-0 loss on Tuesday. And if that wasn’t frustrating enough, the Wild recently traveled to the City of Brotherly Love on Saturday to earn the 1-0 victory over the Flyers. So in other words, Philadelphia had two opportunities to come through against Minnesota, and they couldn’t even manage to score a single goal in one of the contests.
With these two recent losses to the Wild, the Flyers have now been shutout a total of five times during the 2017-18 season, making it easy to see why they’re currently sitting at the bottom of the Metropolitan Division. And unless the offense figures out a way to get out of this recent slump, the losses are only going to continue piling up for Philadelphia, as the team prepare for another tough opponent on Thursday in the Winnipeg Jets.
On a positive note, at least it’s only November, and the Flyers still have plenty of time remaining in the regular season to turn things around to provide fans with some hope for a potential playoff run down the road. However, the important thing to focus on for now is figuring out their issues on offense to get the scoring back up since that’s going to be the only way Philadelphia is going to win games.
