No.10: Philadelphia Flyers

Previous: 5th

Record: 20-14-5

The Flyers have been a surprise in the East despite a current 4-game losing streak. Goaltender Steve Mason has been in net throughout the past four losses, but luckily Michal Neuvirth is back from injury and may provide a boost for the Flyers. Philly’s powerplay percentage ranks 6th in the NHL (21.7), along with the team being 7th in the league at 2.9 goals per game scored.
