Are the Flyers on the verge of change?

They have lost four in succession on the road in which their goaltending suddenly has a bit of a leak – four or more goals yielded, per loss, in regulation play.

Their scoring has been erratic, their defense has looked very slow off transition, and yet they have still managed to pick up eight points over their last eight games.

That said, the Flyers, who return home Tuesday against Washington and have yet another home-and-home series coming up against Columbus, know they need to be better.

They lost three games lately they should have won – all on the road.

And the Flyers remain three points out of a playoff berth, and that’s one point further back than where they were a few weeks ago.

All of which is of concern to Flyers chairman Ed Snider, who indicated Monday there may be some changes. A trade, perhaps?
