The Flyers are 28th in the league in faceoff percentage and it's costing them.

Even with Claude Giroux winning over 56 percent, the Flyers have been brutal. "I think through time and experience and getting stronger, you gain lessons in the faceoff circle and become better schooled at it -- and better equipped to handle guys who have been around a long time," coach Peter Laviolette said. Heading into Thursday's games, the top three faceoff teams in the league were a combined 18-7-3 record, with the bottom three 11-15-3.
