22. Philadelphia Flyers

Previous: No. 19

Record: 35-32-8 (78 points)

Sunday’s 6-2 thrashing of the Pittsburgh Penguins was certainly an unexpected victory against the defending Stanley Cup champs. Goaltender Steve Mason made 25 saves against the Penguins, aiming to keep playoff hopes alive. Sitting six points out of a wild card spot, the likelihood of achieving a playoff berth seems unlikely but not completely out of the question.
