Flyers Pull Within Two Points Of Playoff Spot

After coming off of a 6-0 win over division rival, Columbus Blue Jackets, and playing their final game at home before traveling, you would think the Flyers would have a strong start to this game well… a slow start from the Flyers gifted the Lightning an early first period goal, putting the Flyers down 1-0.

Gudas Leads Flyers Past Columbus

(Getty Images) Well that was fun! Wow, that might be the first time I’ve said that non-sarcastically this season. The Flyers were coming in off of brutally disgusting loss to Edmonton and definitely could not let another 2 points slip to another bad team. Fortunately the Flyers were on the right side of a blow […]

Schenn Scores Hat Trick In Win Over Calgary

(Tom Mihalek/Associated Press) The Flyers managed to stay quiet at the trade deadline. They needed to remain poised and get the win against the Calgary Flames. That is exactly what they achieved. With Jake Voracek sidelined for two weeks due to a lower-body injury, it couldn’t have been a better game for Brayden Schenn to […]

Was No Move the Right Move for the Flyers

(Photo Credit/AP) The NHL trade deadline has passed with very little action coming from any team in the league. Surprisingly, the Flyers made no moves before the deadline passed. Many fans thought the team would look to move their older players, in hopes to add-on to the already promising future for the organization. Sadly, those […]

Shayne Gostisbehere: Good At Hockey, Bad At Drawing Ghost Bears

Shayne Gostisbehere is good at a lot of things, however, drawing does not seem to be one of them. A picture appeared on Reddit posted by user DJMcSkillet. It appears Gostisbehere was asked to sign a fan’s helmet, a pretty traditional request for a hockey player. However, this fan had a very specific request. Gostisbehere, affectionately […]

Neuvirth Saves The Day

(Photo/Matt Slocum/AP) Oh look at that, the Flyers are gonna give up a goal with under a minute left……….PSYCH!!! This time around the Flyers were able to hold on to the lead by the skin of their teeth, and I’m not even sure teeth have skin. Since the beginning of the first period Michal Neuvirth […]

Jake Voracek Curses In Interview Between Periods

We’ll chalk this one up to a language barrier. Jakub Voracek, forward for the Philadelphia Flyers, was asked about the team’s feelings coming into tonight’s game vs the Maple Leafs without captain Claude Giroux. Voracek, a very colorful character, had an interesting response to the question:

Quick Recap: Flyers at Devils

Period 1: I knew this game was going to be interesting from the start, given that both teams need to win to remain in the playoff hunt. The game started as any Flyers’ game would by taking a quick penalty… thanks to Nick Schultz interfering with Stephen Gionta. The Flyers did a pretty good job […]

Ghost Extends Streak As Flyers Fall To Rangers

Just 59 seconds into the game, four players found themselves in the Sin Bin (Simmonds, White, Mcllrath, and Glass) with 5 minute majors for fighting. Shortly after, coincidental minors handed out to Zuccarello and VandeVelde, both for crosschecking. All this before even the first commercial break! During the first period, the Flyers had an early […]

It is no secret that the Rangers would try to retaliate tonight against Wayne Simmonds after an incident involving himself and Rangers’ captain, Ryan McDonagh.

Ghost Breaks Record, Devils Take Down Flyers In OT

Desperate to push themselves back into the playoff race, the Flyers found themselves trying not to fall asleep this afternoon against the Devils. This game started out as you would expect any Flyers/Devils to be. BORING right from the start. I mean it’s terrible how awfully predictable these games can be. The Devils absolutely smothered […]

Umberger scores, Flyers Beat Sabres

Earlier today, I received word that Matt Read and Scott Laughton were out and Jordan Weal was set to make his second Flyers’ start. In addition, Rj Umberger surprisingly crawled back into the lineup. The second and third line were shuffled, the second line consisted of Raffl, Schenn and Cousins while the third line was […]

Ducks Soar Passed Flyers

First period: The Flyers coming into this game with their heads high after a rough weekend losing both games. It was a slow first period by the Flyers and was definitely filled with penalties as was the entire game. Rickard Rakell opens the scoring with a power play goal assisted by Perry. Just over five […]
