Oilers aim for quick start against Flyers

Winning games despite falling behind is a positive trait. Hockey history is filled with teams that have the confidence they can come from behind for victories.

The Edmonton Oilers were perfect examples of that in recent weeks, setting an NHL record by netting five straight come-from-behind victories to start the season.

As the Oilers head into a Wednesday home clash against the road-weary Philadelphia Flyers, it's with the reminder teams eventually pay the price when always playing from behind. The Oilers were given that lesson in their last outing, a 3-1 defeat at the hands of the Chicago Blackhawks on Monday that ended Edmonton's four-game road swing.
