The Flyers lost five of their last six regular-season games ... sort of. Two were in overtime, one of those a shootout.

“Some of those shootout losses down the stretch, they get twisted,” Peter Laviolette said. “They leave a bad taste in your mouth when you actually didn’t play that bad.”

He's right.

And not that one game matters, but the Flyers were lively in a 7-4 victory over the Islanders to close the season. They had lousy goaltending. But they were lively ... lively enough to hint that they are ready for a hot streak.

How hot?

How's four games sound?

Flyers over the Sabres in four.

And check out the Daily Times and Thursday for my column on the pressures the Flyers now face, and for the story about the mysterous pre-playoff practice absense of Mike Richards.
