The Flyers found their power play and perhaps their season. Facing their worst nine-game start ever, the Flyers responded by scoring on all three power plays, including Danny Briere's first goal this season, to halt a troubling three-game losing streak Saturday night. "It feels like we are finally getting results after all the work we put in," Briere, who missed the first four games with a wrist injury, said about the power play after a 5-3 win at the Wells Fargo Center against the Hurricanes. The Flyers, who came into the game with the worst record in the Eastern Conference, improved to 3-6 with the uplifting win to the relief of 16,691 fans in the start of what could be a cathartic four-game homestand. And, after starting just five for 40 on power plays in the first eight games for the 24th worse efficiency in the league, the Flyers connected on all three advantages for a 5-2 lead after two periods.
