VOORHEES, N.J. --
The Flyers' 20 goals have been scored by nine different forwards. The only three forwards to play in the series and not score are Eric Wellwood
, Zac Rinaldo
and Scott Hartnell
-- the team's leading goal-scorer in the regular season.
Hartnell had a career-best 37 goals in the regular-season -- the sixth-most in the League -- but he hasn't found the back of the net in the first three games.
Adding more incentive for Hartnell to score is the fact that Wednesday is his 30th birthday.
"Everyone would like to score on their birthday," Hartnell said. "I had some chances, hit the post last game in the last game. Not too, too worried about it."
No one else in the Flyers' locker room is, either.
"I think Scott's done a good job in the series," Flyers coach Peter Laviolette
said. "I'm sure at some point you'll see him crack the score sheet, but right now we think he's playing a physical game and getting to those areas."
"Scotty doesn't have to score goals to be good for our team," linemate Claude Giroux
added. "He's been in their face, he's been hitting, he's been winning battles. He's playing great right now. I know the score sheet doesn't show any goals, but he's doing a lot of good things for us."
The players believe the fact that their leading goal-scorer hasn't scored and yet they're up 3-0 in the series is a testament to their scoring depth.
"It doesn't matter who scores the goals," Jakub Voracek
told NHL.com. "All four lines can score the goals and that's what we're doing right now, and that's why we're scoring so many goals."
