The Penguins are expected to sit out the likes of James N...

Flyers C Giroux expected to be ready for playoffs

With an essentially meaningless game to finish the regular season on Saturday, Philadelphia Flyers stud center Claude Giroux elected to take a breather. Although general manager Paul Holmgren said that his star was plagued by an upper-body injury - multiple reports deduced that it was actually a cold - Giroux sat out Saturday's 4-2 loss to the rival Pittsburgh Penguins. Giroux...

Flyers and D Nicklas Grossmann Agree to Extension

The Flyers made a very smart move today by signing defenseman Nicklas Grossmann to a multi-year contract extension. Grossmann was acquired ahead of the NHL trade deadline in February, and has done a tremendous job for the Flyers. Grossmann’s size (6’4″, 230 pounds) has given the Flyers a big presence in front of the net, something that had been sorely lacking since Chris Pronger’s...

Flyers Release First Round Playoff Schedule

As we all know, the Flyers are set to play the Penguins in the first round of the playoffs. Entering the postseason as the 5th overall seed in the Eastern Conference, they will not have the luxury of having home ice advantage against Pittsburgh. The Flyers only have 1 loss all-time at the Consol Energy Center (yesterday), so we're not too concerned with their ability to play...

Penguins, Flyers renew playoff rivalry

Philadelphia Flyers forward Scott Hartnell expects ''a lot of blood, a lot of goals'' when the Flyers face the Pittsburgh Penguins in the opening round of the NHL playoffs. The fourth-seeded Penguins will have home-ice advantage Wednesday against fifth-seeded Philadelphia, though playing at Consol Energy Center has hardly been an advantage. The Flyers have won five...

Flyers making Sather look good

With the recent signing/extension of Nicklas Grossman the Philadelphia Flyers achieved three things. First of all they overpaid for a good but not elite defensive defenseman, secondly they gave themselves potential cap headaches this summer with the likes of Matt Carle, Jaromir Jagr and Jakub Voracek to re-sign (headaches could disappear depending on the Pronger situation) and finally...

Scott Hartnell wants your vote for EA's NHL 13 cover contest

[youtube]CpJON4isYPw[/youtube] Earlier this month we wrote about how EA's NHL 13 would feature a player on the cover selected by the fans in a March Madness style bracket. Some players have taken it to heart, waging war against their fellow competitors in an effort to get their mug on the cover for all fans to see. Scott Hartnell took things a step further and honestly, we...

Flyers ink D Grossmann to multi-year extension

The Philadelphia Flyers signed defenseman Nicklas Grossmann to a multi-year contract extension Friday.The Flyers acquired Grossmann from the Dallas Stars in February and in 22 games with Philadelphia he's collected six assists.The 27-year-old is recovering from a knee injury he suffered Sunday against the Pittsburgh Penguins and is listed as day-to-day.Grossman has three goals...

Penguins, Flyers weighing how to play finale

There will be nothing on the line when the Pittsburgh Penguins and Philadelphia Flyers face each other in the regular-season finale on Saturday. The Penguins have already locked in the fourth seed in the Eastern Conference and will host the fifth-seeded Flyers when the playoffs begin next week. The game is meaningless in the standings but not in the minds of the players. The Flyers...

Tim Panaccio: Locking Up The Big Swede

As I reported earlier tonight on CSNPhilly.com, Nicklas Grossmann's new deal with the Flyers is 4 years for $14 million. His cap hit is $3.5 million. This is a terrific, manageable contract for the Flyers. They get a physical defenseman who is a crease-clearer and just 27-years of age at a time when Matt Carle will likely not be re-signed and Chris Pronger's career...

Flyers Down Sabres in "Irrelevant" Game 81 To Clinch 5th Seed, Pre-Game Awards Presented

Coming into Thursday night, the Flyers still had a legitimate chance at obtaining home ice advantage. All they had to do was take care of business against the Buffalo Sabres (who were fighting for their playoff lives themselves) and take down the Penguins on Saturday. The Flyers certainly did what they needed to do, downing the Buffalo Sabres 2-1 in dramatic fashion. Matt Read'...

Bill Meltzer: Flyers Gameday: 4/7/12 @ Penguins

PREVIEW 7:45 AM In the final game of the 2011-12 regular season, the Philadelphia Flyers (47-25-9) will travel to take on their Eastern Conference Quarterfinal opponent, the Pittsburgh Penguins (50-25-6). The game has no bearing on the final standings, because the Penguins have three more points via shootout wins and the Flyers (who have 43 regulation/overtime wins to Pittsburgh...

Flyers-Penguins Preview

Flying sticks. Pointed fingers. Postgame putdowns. And that was just the coaches. What can the Pittsburgh Penguins and Philadelphia Flyers possibly do in Saturday's regular-season finale to top their last meeting, a 6-4 Flyers win at Consol Energy Center this week that served as a preview of what will be a contentious first-round playoff series? The smart answer might be nothing...
