The Orange Update:
Tonight’s 5-2 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs was not the start to a six game road trip the Flyers were looking for. The Flyers are coming off of a four-game home stand in which they earned seven of a […]

There is one thing I’ve noticed about the Toronto Maple Leafs this year is that they are not going to be pushed around. Even the host of CBC’s Hockey Night in Canada’s Coach’s Corner, Don Cherry recognized that fact on the weekend when he analyzed the first period of the Montreal game.
The Leafs marched into Montreal and took control of the game right away. ”We...

The injury bug has not been kind to the Philadelphia Flyers in this lockout shortened season, and goalies have been no exception. Flyers GM Paul Holmgren has announced to the media that backup goaltender Michael Leighton will be out 7-10 days with what the team has described as an “upper body injury”...

The Philadelphia Flyers begin a season-long, six-game road trip Monday night, a moment in their season that will answer questions about a club that has sent mixed messages about its status in the Eastern Conference.
Are they indeed still the contenders some people believe they are? Or a team in transition that needs a bit more growth of its...
Per Sportsnet's Chris Johnston, the NHL found "insufficient evidence" to assess any supplemental discipline to Leafs center Mikhail Grabovski for the biting incident in Toronto's 6-0 victory over Montreal on Saturday night.

The excitement generated by the Maple Leafs 5-2 victory and dominating performance against the Philadelphia Flyers at the Air Canada Center Monday night was tempered as goaltender James Reimer left the game due to a lower body injury and did not return.
The Leafs improve to 8-5-0 on the year, as Dion Phaneuf, Colton Orr, Matt Frattin, Clarke MacArthur and James van Riemsdyk scored...
The NHL has an interesting policy on wanting to know when things happened - you know, when evidence is present. An ejection from the game for a major match penalty? Nah. You don't need evidence at that moment... maybe the next day when you decide if you should rescind a penalty. Do you need evidence to know if a disallowed goal is a mistake? No. A high stick or a kicked in puck...
Things got a little heated in one of the NHL’s best rivalries Saturday night, and an alleged biting incident has drawn the attention of the NHL.
Maple Leafs forward Mikhail Grabovski is scheduled to have a Sunday hearing with the league after he appeared to bite Montreal’s Max Pacioretty during a heated scrum late in Toronto’s 6-0 win over the Canadiens on Saturday night.

Time for: Patience
Why: The Flyers were getting perilously close to panic mode, but they staved it off by going 3-0-1 in their last four games, including a 4-3 overtime win against the Carolina Hurricanes on Saturday, when they blew a third-period lead but got a goal from Danny Briere in overtime.

The Flyers needed a blue collar type effort tonight at MTS Centre in Winnipeg after a dreadful performance last night against the Maple Leafs. They got it. One of the keys was a fast start… It kinda sorta went that […]

The past week has been a wild one for these heartless bums known as your Philadelphia Flyers. A shootout loss to Florida, OT winner against the Staal’s (Canes), an absolute joke of a game at Toronto where my team showed […]
