Captain Claude Giroux must feel pretty confident that the Philadelphia Flyers will snap a two-game skid when they host the Anaheim Ducks on Tuesday.Why, you ask? Well, Giroux noted that the Flyers (23-19-9) were ready to move on following one-goal losses to the Metropolitan Division-rival New York Rangers and Washington Capitals. That sounds innocent enough, but the 28-year-old Ontario...

WATCH: Wayne Simmonds loses his cool, earns match penalty

Wayne Simmonds is known as one of the tough guys in the league and shows it every time he steps on the ice. This time against the Rangers though, he went over the line. Or at least the officials thought he crossed the line, but you be the judge. Something must have happened that we are missing as Simmonds does not take kindly to the decision at all. He completely loses it and...

Philadelphia Flyers: Can Steve Mason be the guy?

Goaltending wins championships in the NHL. The last three teams to win the Stanley Cup have all had franchise goaltenders: the Chicago Blackhawks (Corey Crawford), the Los Angeles Kings (Jonathan Quick), and the Boston Bruins (Tuukka Rask). These goalies have all been called upon to make the big save when the game is on the line, and to be consistent in their play. And for the most...

Flyers Give Stolarz a Vote of Confidence as Big Decision Looms

  Philadelphia Flyers rookie goaltender Anthony Stolarz scarcely resembles the player who, on July 9, 2012, stepped onto the ice at the Skate Zone in Voorhees, NJ, for the first day of his first Development Camp. Although the towering teenager was a fine natural athlete and a confident, well-spoken young man even then, he was quite raw on the ice even by teenage goaltender standards...

Philadelphia Flyers Begin Busiest Month with Big Win

The Flyers have their busiest month of the season in February, as they will play 15 games. They will play five straight away from home as ventriloquist/standup comedian Jeff Dunham and then the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus will play the Wells Fargo Center. Why a dude with some puppets needs an arena to play in is beyond me, but I’m not making this up. In that...

Sean Couturier the Flyers real MVP

Embed from Getty Images   So many times in hockey, there is too much of a focus on the numbers, what the stat sheet reads after a game or the totals at a certain point in the season. Often times, that is used to unjustly judge a player's skill level. Flyers GM Ron Hextall has always gone to bat for one player in particular who hasn't lit things up offensively but falls...
