Zac Rinaldo suspended 8 games; nobody cares

Feels like this happened like three weeks ago, but it hasn’t even been a week. The NHL brought the hammer down on Monday, giving Rinaldo an 8-game suspension. Some think it’s right on the money, some think it’s not enough. No one has said it’s too many games, and if they do, it’s probably because they eat paper. As far as we’re concerned, it’s an okay length. The...

Voracek, like linemate Giroux, growing into superstar

The Flyers pick of Claude Giroux with the 22nd overall pick in the 2006 NHL Draft was comical - then GM Bobby Clarke couldn't remember his name. Now it's synonymous with Flyers hockey. From a very early point in the now 27-year-old center's career, you could tell this was a special player and captain material. It started simple enough. Giroux barely played in his first two seasons...

Philadelphia Flyers: Forward Zac Rinaldo on his game misconduct

In the post-game media scrum, Zac Rinaldo said, "I changed the whole game."I am going to predict that Zac Rinaldo will have the book thrown at him for his dirty hit on Kris Letang. I am going to say that he gets at least a 6-8 game suspension he deserves more. Rinaldo is a repeat offender so he "should" be suspended 10 games.I didn't intend to hurt Kris tonight. I'm very sorry I...

Islanders Ground Flyers 7-4 Heading Into Break

TONIGHT’S RECAP To analyze the first period statistically, you would think the Flyers would be the ones who jumped out to a 2-0 lead at the intermission. Philadelphia led in shots, attempts and faceoffs and had some nice runs of play in the offensive zone. But New York would be the ones to capitalize on their opportunities. Michael Grabner got things going when he took a delicious...

WATCH: Did Flyers' Giroux wipe boogers on linesman’s back?

While there is no way to be certain — save for an admission by the offending party himself — it certainly appeared that Philadelphia Flyers captain Claude Giroux wiped his nose (presumably to extract excess booger-like substances from his nostrils) and then proceeded to wipe his hand on the back of a linesman.
