Best and Worst of the Week: Nolan Patrick, missed calls and more

Monday, November 20, 2017

Three games, three losses. But they earned two points last week! Your Philadelphia Flyers™ This team has already gone through so many ups and downs through the first 20 games. They’ve looked elite, mediocre and downright awful. That’s in no particular order. The thing is, they’ve remained competitive mostly. They sit at 8-8-4 with an…

Three Ups, Three Downs from Flyers-Flames

Who didn’t see that coming? No seriously. If you didn’t see that ending coming, you clearly don’t understand what it means to be a Flyers fan. For the second consecutive game, the orange and black blew a two-goal lead and a chance at two points in the standings after dominating a large portion of the…

Three Ups, Three Downs from Flyers-Jets

Welp. At least the Flyers scored a hockey goal, right? After back-to-back shutouts to the Minnesota Wild, the Flyers did the impossible and actually scored two hockey goals in one period Thursday night in Winnipeg. One big problem: It was the same old Flyers. You know, the top line carrying them. The fourth line buzzing,…

Three Ups, Three Downs from Flyers-Wild

The good: The Flyers don’t have to play the Wild again this season. The bad: It’s been 156:09 since the Flyers last scored a real-life hockey goal. Tuesday’s 3-0 loss – a second consecutive shutout defeat for the orange and black – in Minnesota featured a goal just 12 seconds into the game and two…

Best and Worst of the Week: Flyers need to help out the top line

Monday, November 13, 2017

The top line can’t do everything. At some point, the Flyers are going to need someone else to start contributing. The lack of secondary scoring and consistency at the forward position needs to be addressed. This past week was the perfect example. Sean Couturier, Jakub Voracek and Claude Giroux each scored in Thursday’s 3-1 win…

If you took a quick glance at the box score, you’d assume the Flyers ran into a hot goalie on Saturday. No disrespect to Minnesota’s Devan Dubnyk intended but, aside from a few quality chances from the top line, the Flyers didn’t exactly make things difficult for the Wild. Sure, they put 32 shots on…

Three Ups, Three Downs from Flyers-Blackhawks

Brian Elliott was stellar in net, the top line continued its offensive dominance and a pair of rookie defensemen played like seasoned veterans for the Flyers on Thursday night. The result? A 3-1 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks at Wells Fargo Center. Funny how that works. Elliott finished with 38 saves on 39 shots. Sean…

Best and Worst of the Week: Ivan Provorov, Flyers’ top line and more

If there is one thing you can say about the Flyers, it’s that there is never a dull moment. They had a busy week, and found plenty of ways to shoot themselves in the foot and aggravate the fanbase in the process. It started with a home game against Arizona, a team that entered winless…

Three Ups, Three Downs from Flyers-Avalanche

By now, we should be accustomed to the Flyers playing down to weaker opponents only to bounce back and outplay teams better than they are. Oh, and follow up a stolen victory with a loss to another inferior club on home ice. It’s become a staple of Flyers hockey and it’s absolutely maddening. That trend…

Three Ups, Three Downs from Flyers-Blues

Gutsy. That’s the best way to describe the Flyers’ 2-0 victory over the St. Louis Blues on Thursday night. Despite being undermanned because of injuries and sending out a defensive corps half full of AHL-caliber blueliners against one of the best club’s in the NHL on the second half of a back-to-back on the road,…
