Philadelphia Flyers: 5 Keys to Improving Their Power Play Next Season

One of the biggest reasons the Philadelphia Flyers were so successful last season was their power play.

A team built on youth, speed and skill generated an NHL-best 335 man-advantage opportunities producing a league-best 66 power-play goals. Philly's power play percentage (19.7 percent) was good for sixth-best during the regular year while the Flyers boasted the league's top man-advantage (35.7 percent) in the playoffs.

But it wasn't all fist pumps and salutes for the Orange and Black. While Philadelphia's power play was off the charts (12-for-23, 52.3 percent) in the team's six-game series with Pittsburgh, it left something to be desired in its five-game season-ending tilt with New Jersey.

The Flyers tallied just three man-advantage markers in 19 opportunities against the Devils and was an area of tremendous disappointment in the team's stunning second-round exit.

With free agency looming and the offseason reconstruction well underway, here are five keys to improving Philly's power play next season.
