The Flyers might give up some quality chances, but they're 7th in least amount of shots allowed per game, 1st(!) in blocked shots and a surprising 11th in penalty killing. As a whole, they haven't been bad enough defensively lately to be allowing 3 goals a game and blowing it off as ****** team play.
They're top-5 in giveaways however, have had to the most powerplays against and are bottom-5 in face-off percentage. All things that could use some improvement for sure. Still, a glaring stat through 22 games seems to be Bryzgalov's .902 SV%. Hopefully Bryz can pull of a solid string of games coming up here and steal a win or two for the team. He has played A LOT though, so there's always that 'excuse' that could actually be reasonable considering he's 32 years old.
