Flyers dominate Senators 6-1

The Flyers continued their red hot play by beating the best team in the Eastern Conference. The Flyers scored early and often, and Antero Nittymaki made 25 stops to secure the win. It continues to be a team effort, as the Flyers got goals from all four lines. They got goals from unlikely sources like Sami Kapanen and Braydon Coburn, and also got another goal from the Gretzky-esque Scott Hartnell. Hartnell now has 10 goals in his last 7 games. Philadelphia has now reached a three-way tie for first place with New Jersey and Pittsburgh, and have a game in hand on the Devils and Pens. Up next this week for the Flyers: huge games against the Devils and Penguins on Tuesday and Thursday of this week. Now is the time for the Flyers to lay claim to first place in the Atlantic.
