Flyers Scoring Increase Starts with Top Line
The entire Flyers offseason was marred with questions.
Will Claude Giroux return to form? What about Shayne Gostisbehere? What about Jake Voracek? What will Sean Couturier's role be? Who will replace the production that Brayden Schenn brought?
So far, the Flyers have been putting those questions, opening the season on their highest scoring total through six games in over a decade. Through six games, the Flyers have 26 goals, the first time they have reached that mark since the 2005-06 season and just the second time they have hit that mark since the 1988-89 season.
The increase in scoring to start the season has been extraordinary, and it starts with the three forwards on the top line.
