Flyers Have Been Bad On The Road

The Philadelphia Flyers have been pretty mediocre this season, but that mediocrity turns into some downright poor play on the road. In their past 25 games away from Philly, the Flyers are just 8-17. The Flyers will have an uphill battle Friday when they visit the league leading Dallas Stars.

Shark Bites
  • The Stars are 8-2 in their last 10 games coming off two days rest.
  • The Flyers are 5-13 in their past 18 games against the Western Conference.
  • Antti Niemi and Steve Mason are expected to start for their respective teams.

If the Flyers have one safe haven away from Philly it is Dallas, where they are 4-1 in their past five appearances. Though offense has been hard to come by for the Flyers (2.07 gpg) you can’t blame Claude Giroux who has five goals and nine assists in the past nine games.

The Stars have been great at the American Airlines Center this season with the team sporting a 10-3 record and averaging nearly four goals per game on home ice. Valeri Nichushkin has been a big part of the Stars offensive attack lately, as the youngster has scored two goals and five assists in Dallas’ past five games.
