Norwich player ratings: Derby (A)

  Norwich player ratings: Derby (A) Norwich improved their recent impressive away form as they held high-flyers Derby to a 1-1 draw. The Canaries have now gone five Championship away games in-a-row without losing, which has included wins against Brentford, Birmingham and Bristol City. It was Derby who took the lead early on, with top scorer Matej Vydra excellently spinning in the box before smashing a strike into the bottom corner. Norwich then had the perfect chance to level the scores just before half-time when James Maddison was taken down in the box by Scott Carson. Nelson Oliveira, however, saw his spot kick saved by Carson, after he produced a tame effort. The Portuguese forward made up for his miss in the 82nd minute, though, as he won a second penalty for Norwich. Maddison stepped up, this time, and slotted in his tenth goal of the season to earn Norwich a point.

Brian Elliott made 24 saves and four different players scored as the Flyers doubled up the Oilers, 4-2.

Out of the gates, it appeared as though this was going to be a lost campaign for the Philadelphia Flyers. It culminated with a 10-game losing skid in early December, putting coach Dave Hakstol squarely on the hot seat. To say things have changed would be a massive understatement.

It can't be denied; the Flyers have been on a roll. After two months with a balanced offensive attack and goaltending to match, they've moved into a solid playoff spot, just a couple points behind the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Washington Capitals in the Metropolitan Division. Heck, they even beat the Golden Knights in Vegas last weekend, a feat that few have accomplished this season. Vegas has the best home record in the NHL, losing just four times in regulation all season at T-Mobile Arena.

Coyotes come up empty in shootout vs. Flyers backup goalie

  Coyotes come up empty in shootout vs. Flyers backup goalie Flyers get game-winner in 7th round of shootoutGLENDALE, Ariz. — The Philadelphia Flyers got their first shootout win of the season after losing the first four, and neded their backup goalie in to finish it off.

Four different players scored in the 3rd period to back Alex Lyon's 23-save effort in the Flyers ' 4-2 comeback win against the Hurricanes.

Jared McCann, Derek MacKenzie and Jonathan Huberdeau scored for the Panthers, as James Reimer made 29 saves in a 3-2 win against the Flyers .

Now, their successful goalie tandem has been interrupted due to injury, with de facto starter Brian Elliott expected to miss a little over a month during a crucial stretch of the regular season. How can Philadelphia keep it rolling without its starting netminder?

For starters, a trade to help Michal Neuvirth out between the pipes may come to fruition. The organization certainly has faith in the experienced Neuvirth, but Elliott went 15-5-1 since the Flyers' losing streak was snapped in the final month of 2017. While Elliott potentially could be back in action before the playoffs start, Philadelphia has to keep winning to maintain playoff position. GM Ron Hextall told the press that the Flyers currently plan to give Neuvirth a heavy workload, but he also didn't ruled out the possibility of getting him some help at the deadline, which is still a couple weeks away.

In the meantime, Philly needs to maintain the scoring production that got them out of that dismal losing skid back in November. The emergence of Sean Courturier as a goal-scorer has certainly been part of that success. His contributions to Philly's 4-1 win in Las Vegas, who had a goal and two assists to match his typical stellar defense, was a nice sample of how he has played over the last couple of months. The 25-year-old forward already has set career highs in goals, assists and points, pacing Philadelphia with his team-leading 28 goals.

He adds punch behind All-Star Claude Giroux and Jakub Voracek, who are among the top point producers in the league. Even the Flyers' young corpse is contributing. Following a slow start, Shayne Gostisbehere is playing the best hockey of his career, pairing with Ivan Provorov to form one of the most talented young defense pairs in the NHL. In addition, the Flyers have nine players with at least 10 goals this season, with Wayne Simmonds his usual reliable self and sophomore Travis Konecny adding scoring punch to his game.

The basic idea behind red-black BSTs is to encode 2-3 trees by starting with standard BSTs (which are made up of 2-nodes) and adding extra information to encode 3-nodes. Maintain the string in a balanced search tree, where each node records the subtree count and a reverse bit (that

It's clear that a big part of the Flyers' success is that they no longer have to rely on only two or three players to carry the team. That has to keep up if they want to stay within striking distance of the Penguins and the Capitals in the standings.

The next couple of weeks will tell us a lot about whether the Flyers can keep up this streak. They have a few days off to recover from the 5-4 shootout loss to the New Jersey Devils Tuesday night — a team they've bumped from playoff contention, no less — before they visit the Blue Jackets in Columbus Friday, From there, it's a mixed bag of competition before they visit the East-leading Lightning March 3 and host the Penguins March 7.

Adding intrigue to that early match intrastate rivalry content, if the playoffs started today, the Pens and Flyers would square off in Round 1. If Philly can maintain its rounded offensive push and hold down the fort between the pipes, that postseason matchup — or one just as competitive — could become a reality.
