Flyers player to watch
Mark Streit - Defenseman

Though he has just two assists through nine games, fans are all too aware of what the former Islanders captain can do.
Streit led Islanders defenseman in scoring in each of the four seasons he spent on Long Island. The eighth-year defenseman played in his 500th NHL game on Oct. 24 vs. the Rangers, and is still hovering right around 20 minutes a night.

Quote of the Day:

"As the game went along, we felt like we could score a goal, be right back in the game and then turn the table on them. We didn’t quit. We put the puck at the net, and good things happened.”
