Tuesday, October 2, 2018

Unsurprisingly, getting team rosters to the maximum of 23 players forced a busy week for Philadelphia Flyers general manager Ron Hextall. On the bright side, there’s plenty to go over in the moves the GM has made in the past week. Claiming Calvin Pickard, waiving Dale Weise and Mikhail Vorobyev making the team are just…

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-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…

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…

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,…

Flyers (6-5-1) @ Blackhawks (5-5-2) The Flyers were not happy with their effort against the Coyotes and are looking to prove themselves against a dangerous Blackhawks team. Flyers are still battling a couple of injuries and will enter the game without Shayne Gostisbehere and Nolan Patrick, who remain day-to-day with upper-body injuries. Dale Weise will…
