Flyers-Oilers Preview (The Associated Press)

The Philadelphia Flyers are trying anything to keep their fading playoff hopes alive. After calling a players-only meeting following their latest defeat, the Flyers try to avoid matching the club-record nine-game road skid they set earlier this season Saturday night against the Edmonton Oilers. Mired in a 1-4-3 slide and 10 points behind Boston for the final wild-card spot in the Eastern Conference, Philadelphia (29-29-15) has absolutely no room for error. After being held to one goal in each of the first three on a four-game trip through Canada and showing little jump during a second consecutive 4-1 loss Thursday at Calgary, the Flyers held a brief team meeting.
