The NHL revealed their rosters for the 2018 NHL All-Star Game this past week and there was only one member of the Philadelphia Flyers selected to participate in the event. Captain Claude Giroux will be the lone Flyers’ representative at the event in Tampa Bay, Florida taking place on Jan. 27-28. The rosters are obviously…

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…

Flyers (8-8-3, 19 PTS) vs Flames (10-8-0, 20 PTS) After back-to-back shutout losses against the Minnesota Wild, it looked as if the Flyers were going to get back into the win column Thursday evening in Winnipeg. Philadelphia jumped out to a 2-0 lead, only to surrender the game-tying goal to Mark Scheifele late in the…

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-Wild

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

Monday, November 6, 2017

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…
