Forget the standings for a moment. If there is one team in worse shape than the Philadelphia Flyers, it's the Carolina Hurricanes.
Carolina enters with a 4-7-3 record, but their home ice struggles and injury woes will give the Flyers a clear advantage in their Tuesday night meeting.
After Friday's embarrassment against the Washington Capitals, the Flyers rebounded with a 1-0 win that centered around a solid defensive performance.
The problem with the Flyers still lies within the offense, which has scored 21 goals in 13 games, 1.6 per game. Claude Giroux and Scott Hartnell are still in search of their first goal of the season. It is an epidemic.
Even with the shutout effort on Saturday, Ray Emery will give way to Steve Mason once again. Mason is 3-7 with a 2.42 GAA and .922 save percentage.
The Hurricanes are an incredibly injury-riddled...

Everyone is still talking about the Ray Emery - Braden Holtby "fight" which occurred during a massive brawl between the Flyers and Capitals. It'd be easy to rank that incident as the best from last week due to the sheer spectacle of it all, but we've opted to go in a different direction. Which fight leads the way? Read on to find out. 5. George Parros (MON...
GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Flyers goalie Ray Emery made national headlines when he skated the length of the ice to attack and pummel unwilling Capitals goalie Braden Holtby in Washington's 7-0 win in Philadelphia on Friday, setting off a melee.
Some have blamed the officials for not intervening sooner and exacting greater punishment on Emery, who has other fights to his credit. Some...
Several Flyers said their brawl in a blowout loss against Washington on Friday has unified the team and served as a much-needed spark and rallying cry.
The Flyers received lots of negative national coverage for the four simultaneously fights - one in which Ray Emery pummeled the opposing goalie, Washington's Braden Holtby, who didn't want to participate. The fights occurred...
One statistic several people are referencing as to why they think the Philadelphia Flyers’ offense will rebound is shooting percentage. Of the 24 skaters to suit up for at least one game for the Orange and Black this season only Tye McGinn (42.9), Vincent Lecavalier (19.2), Braydon Coburn (15.4), and Brayden Schenn have (12.0) have shooting percentages over 10 percent. According...
Carolina Hurricanes center Elias Lindholm, the No. 5 pick of the 2013 NHL Draft, was sent to the Charlotte Checkers of the American Hockey League on Wednesday, and the Hurricanes recalled forward Chris Terry from Charlotte.
Lindholm had one goal and one assist in 10 games with the Hurricanes. Although he's 18, he is eligible to play in the AHL because he was drafted out of Sweden...
Philadelphia Flyers (4-9-0) @ Carolina Hurricanes (4-7-3), 7:30pm, NBCSN/CSN-Philly One can make the argument that any stretch of games is key to a team’s success for a season, but the next four games for the Philadelphia Flyers might be the most important stretch all season. Playing two teams with as many wins as they currently do in the Carolina Hurricanes and the Ottawa Senators...
[Photo Courtesy of PhillySportsCentral.com] 14 games into the season, Steve Mason remains the shining star on a lifeless Flyers team that failed to capture a win over a team quarterbacked by an 0-5 backup goalie. 14 games into the season, the Flyers have a dismal 22 goals to their name. 14 games into the season, [...]
The Carolina Hurricanes got a much needed boost in their lineup for last night’s game against the Philadelphia Flyers, as they really needed some help.
The Hurricanes had lost five straight games, all in regulation going into last night’s tilt. The ‘Canes activated their veteran forward Radek Dvorak from the injured reserve list for last night’s home game against Philly...
The Philadelphia Flyers are having a difficult season. When your backup goalie beating another team’s essentially defenseless goalie into the ice during a…
The Hurricanes picked up free-agent center Manny Malhotra solely for his prowess at the face-off dot, but it was the 33-year-old’s offensive spark that powered Carolina to an overtime win on Tuesday.
Malhotra has averaged roughly a goal every eight games throughout his 15-year NHL career, and he entered Tuesday night’s matchup with the Flyers having not lit the lamp since March...

A week ago, Manny Malhotra was just hoping to play in another NHL game.
But to win a game for the Carolina Hurricanes, in overtime, to end a five-game losing streak? Even Malhotra couldn’t have dreamed of that.
That’s just the way it unfolded Tuesday at PNC Arena. The Canes fought back at the end of regulation, tying the score on Jordan Staal’s goal in the final minute, then...
I have been running this blog for almost three years and by now, most people know my shtick. Whenever the team goes through a rough stretch or has a problem, I like to dive into the numbers or go over the game tape to break down what happened and what the Hurricanes can do to fix it. Today, I'm going to be taking a different approach and give my two cents on some of the team...
With no North American contract to boot, former NHL defenseman Jeff Woywitka has signed with the Augsburger Panthers of the DEL. Woywitka was drafted in the 1st round, 27th overall by the Philadelphia Flyers in the 2001 NHL Entry Draft. After reporting to Philadelphia’s AHL affiliate for his first professional season in 03-04, he was traded to the Edmonton Oilers midway through...
