Philadelphia Flyers attempt rebound against Boston Bruins on Comcast

The Philadelphia Flyers host the Atlantic Division leading Boston Bruins at 1 p.m. EST Saturday on Comcast SportsNet Philadelphia.

Craig Berube's defensive schemes worked for an extended period of time shortly after he took the helm in early October. But, a recent skid has set his Flyers' team back three steps. While three straight losses aren't devastating, the 'Orange and Black' surely haven't been attacking each zone with any desperation. That needs to change before the Olympic break if playoff momentum is to be achieved.

In this first meeting between the 1974 Stanley Cup combatants this hockey year, Philadelphia will put Steve Mason back between the pipes. It appears as though contract extension matters may have thrown the young netminder off his game in recent weeks. With a new three-year deal in-hand, this resilient goalie should soon be back on his game.

Excessive turnovers have led to many scoreboard shortages of late. Combine that atmosphere with Boston's National Hockey League's best goals against (109) ranking. Yes, the Flyers will have to give at least a 60-minute effort to earn one point, or possibly two, during this weekend matinee.
