Anything appears possible with 16 games left in the regular season for the playoff-hopeful Flyers.

One scenario is that they face the Pittsburgh Penguins in the first round of the playoffs, and if Saturday was any indication, that’s just fine with the Flyers.

A 4-0 drubbing of the Penguins was perhaps the best 60-minute effort the Flyers have had this season.

“This was one of our best games for sure,” said Sean Couturier, who fed Matt Read twice for goals. “From the start we were putting pressure, and ’til the end we put pressure. When we do that and we play deep in their end and put pressure, we’re successful. So we’ve got to do that tomorrow again.”

Yes, the reward for the Flyers’ win is a rematch today on the west side of Pennsylvania. They’d be thrilled if they could duplicate the effort in which they bested the Penguins in all aspects of the game.

The Penguins have the league’s best power play and penalty kill, but the Flyers had the better special teams Saturday.

Scott Hartnell scored his 16th goal of the season on an early power play. A few minutes later, Read scored after he dumped the puck in, Couturier got it and fed him for a one-timer from the slot.

“Yeah, 60 minutes it was good,” coach Craig Berube said. “I liked the way we played the third period. We were very composed, good with the puck, did the right things, and got it in deep. I liked our start to the game, obviously a big power play goal to get us going.”

The Flyers dominated from the start and didn’t let their foot off the pedal. They scored a pair of even-strength goals in the second period to double the lead.
