Game 4 Preview: Philadelphia Flyers @ Colorado Avalanche

The Flyers have gotten off to a miserable 0-2-1 start this year, despite playing a great game against the Penguins on Tuesday. I'm starting to get a worrisome feeling about the Flyers. They're hanging with the teams they're playing, but they haven't been able to get over the hump. Luckily, the Avalanche are winless as well. Someone has to walk out a winner tonight, why not us?

The Game: Philadelphia Flyes (0-2-1) @ Colorado Avalanche (0-3-0)

What's Good:
The Flyers that need to score have been scoring. Throughout the first three games, the Flyers have three goals from Simon Gagne, two goals from Mike Richards and Jeff Carter, and a goal from Scott Hartnell.

What's Bad:
The Flyers have been prone to allowing quick, consecutive goals this season. In a loss to Montreal, they watched a 2-1 lead turn into a 3-2 deficit in just 44 seconds. In an overtime loss to Pittsburgh, they allowed the first two goals of the game 42 seconds apart in the second period.

What to Expect:
The Flyers finally put it together tonight and get that elusive first win.

The Prediction:
Flyers 4 Avalanche 1
