A Bright Spot in the City of Brotherly Love

The Philadelphia Flyers beat the Nashville Predators on the road Sunday to extend their win streak to five games, bringing their record to 14-10-3 which is good for fourth place in the Metropolitan Division. It is no secret that the Philadelphia Flyers have been incredibly inconsistent, but their play over the past week has been […] Philadelphia Flyers: A Bright Spot in the City...

What’s Working for the Flyers

For the first time since 2014, when Craig Berube was still the Philadelphia Flyers’ coach and Kimmo Timonen was an alternate captain, the team is on a five-game winning streak. After an inconsistent start to the first month-and-a-half of the season, the Flyers have turned a corner. Up to this current stretch, their only win streak was a three-game run over the transition from October...

Flyers Hitting Their Stride

For most of the 2016-17 season, the Philadelphia Flyers have been a Jekyll and Hyde kind of team. Plagued by spotty goaltending and shaky team defense, the Flyers could never muster more than a few wins in a row, mostly trading a win one night for a loss the next. However, over the last couple weeks that shaky defense and spotty goaltending have come around and have contributed to...

Mason, Flyers look to stay hot vs. Panthers

PHILADELPHIA -- Thanks to the stellar play of goaltender Steve Mason, the Philadelphia Flyers enter Tuesday night's game against the banged-up Florida Panthers on a five-game winning streak, their longest since March 15-22, 2014 when Craig Berube was behind the bench. After struggling through the first month of the season, Mason has won four in a row, sporting a much-improved 1...

Mason Crucial to Flyers’ Success

If you were to take a poll among Flyer fans asking what the teams biggest issue would be heading into this season, goaltending would certainly be near the bottom of that list. A few weeks into the season, however, that would have topped the list by a long shot. The Flyers opened the season as one of the highest scoring teams in the NHL and were peppering opposing goaltenders with...

Simmonds leads Flyers past Predators 4-2 for 5th straight

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Wayne Simmonds scored two power-play goals and the Philadelphia Flyers beat the Nashville Predators 4-2 on Sunday night to win their fifth consecutive game.

Claude Giroux Scores Two Goals, Makes Me Look Great (Again)

Me, yesterday, after telling you that Claude Giroux got engaged: Prediction: G scores two goals tonight. G, last night: “Claude Giroux– he gets engaged, scores a couple goals and wins a game.” I don’t know why you’d read any other site!

Claude Giroux Got Engaged Last Night

It sounds like Claude Giroux had a pretty stressful night last night. The Flyers’ charter to Ottawa appears to have been diverted to Buffalo for reasons unknown, meaning the team arrived in Canada later than anticipated. G, it seems, had somewhere to be. You’re looking at the ring finger of of Ryanne Bretton, Claude Giroux’s fiancee: Prediction: G scores two goals tonight.

Flyers Come Out Firmly Against Woo

Leave it to the hardened, potato chip-stained, fun-hating beat writers to press the issue of woo-ing with the Flyers today. Overpaid gasbag Tim Panaccio, who hates it, specifically reports on the matter: Flyers say the "wooing" is bugging them, too. Voracek: “It’s childish … and really starting to piss me off.

Eric Lindros Changed Philadelphia Hockey Forever

I debated for a long time about how to write this piece. As a journalist you never want to include yourself in the article. And ideally, you’d like it to be free of bias (looking at you, Breitbart). After mulling it over, I decided the only fair way to produce this piece was to write it with the same joyful enthusiasm I felt 18 years ago. As a fan of hockey. As a fan of the Philadelphia...

Flyers GM asked Eric Lindros to come out of retirement in 2012

Eric Lindros’ storied career was cut down by injuries, but if former Philadelphia Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren had his way, Lindros wouldn’t have exited the league so soon. After spending nearly a decade and a half in the NHL, Lindros retired in 2006-2007 at the age of 34. The former first overall pick was plagued with concussion injuries, so the early retirement didn’t...

WATCH: Claude Giroux makes Jaroslav Halak look silly in the shootout

Jaroslav Halak is reportedly on the trading block following comments from his agent, but his trade value may have taken a small step back when teams see how badly he was undressed by Claude Giroux in the shootout. At first, it looked like Halak had Giroux figured out, but soon it became clear Halak was completely bested. That’s just a filthy move.

Watch: Flyers’ Radko Gudas had one of the best, most unique assists of the year

Radko Gudas could have a pretty decent career as a goalie if his current role as a defenseman for the Philadelphia Flyers doesn’t work out. The Flyers were trailing 4-2 in the second period to the Pittsburgh Penguins and were in the final few seconds of a power play when the Penguins made a final effort to clear their zone. Gudas kept the puck in the attacking zone three separate...

Sam Gagner scores a goal so dirty you’ll need to take a shower afterwards

Yes, it is the preseason. That doesn’t mean that some highlights are already in mid-season form. When you are a human highlight reel like Sam Gagner, the preseason is never an excuse. The man just scores beautiful shootout goals. Last night against the Bruins, he gave us all a goal so nice, you have to view it twice. Pfft. He made it look easy, too! If Gagner’s first two games...

Watch: Flyers defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere takes a skate blade to the face

Philadelphia Flyers defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere is pretty lucky to have escaped a serious injury after a skate blade caught him on the face during his team’s matchup against the LA Kings. Gostisbehere, who was one of the most exciting rookies last season, was skating in his defensive zone when Kyle Clifford fell to the ice. Clifford’s skate swung up and caught Gostisbehere...

Video: Jakub Voracek skates through the Rangers to win it in OT

Hockey is most certainly a team game, but sometimes a great individual effort can completely overtake an opponent and decide the result. Such was the case when Jakub Voracek skated around all three Rangers on the ice in OT and sent Flyers fans home happy. That’s an incredible individual effort. It may just be the preseason, but Rangers fans aren’t going to be happy with how...
