As the ‘FAB’ line has dried up, so too has the Flyers’ offense

After a highly productive and rather unexpected start to the season, the Philadelphia Flyers’ F-A-B line has crashed down to Earth of late — as has the rest of the club’s offense.

A preseason injury to Kevin Hayes forced centers to move up a rung in the Flyers’ lineup, leaving Joel Farabee and Cam Atkinson to play with free agent bargain signing Derick Brassard — thus forming the FAB line.

The FAB line was off to a blistering pace right out of the gate with 16 points in their first four games to pace the Flyers’ fast scoring start.
