Actually we haven't dropped farther then the 6th spot, so we been 4-6 lately. A "collapse" isn't going to happen, seeing as they haven't had good goaltending all season and still are scoring, Flyers are tied for players with 10+ goals with 10 in the league with the Red Wings & Preds, and have the most 16+ goal scorers in the league with 6 of them.
Also, seems that the Blues shipped Ben Bishop to Ottawa for a 2nd round draft pick in 2013. I know a few teams were interested in him, as he's supposedly is NHL ready, but with Blues having Halak and Elliot having a career year for him, guess they decided he could be shipped. As for Ottawa, seems like Anderson is going to be out 6-8 weeks, so they wanted to get someone as they don't believe in Lehner or Auld to carry them to the playoffs and feel like Bishop will get that chance right away or soon.
