The Flyers haven’t won five games in a row since March 2014.

“It feels good,’ right wing Wayne Simmonds says. “Guys are confident in our team. We’re doing the right things. We have confidence on the bench and I think it shows.”

Simmonds exudes that confidence with six points in three games, matching his total over the previous 18. He’s scored four goals over his last three contests, netting at least one in each.

Of Simmonds’ seven goals and eight assists on the season, only four assists have come at home.

Simmonds, who scored on the road again Friday, has seven goals and three assists in 10 meetings with Columbus as a member of the Flyers.
