I set my DVR to record “The Biggest Loser” and it keeps recording Philadelphia Flyers games! But seriously… As representatives of Pittsburgh Penguins nation, do you feel sorry for the Philadelphia Flyers abysmal season? They struggled with injuries, and poor play.

This Flyer's got an eye for fashion

Philadelphia Flyers goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov has already carved out a niche as one of the more quirky athletes in sports. After all, this is a guy who trained as a cosmonaut in Russia during the NHL lockout -- and that might not be the weirdest thing he's done. But Bryzgalov's latest antics, which took place in the Flyers' locker room on Wednesday, may be his best,...

Crosby practices, return uncertain

Pittsburgh Penguins star Sidney Crosby has returned to practice, but his status for next week's playoff opener remains uncertain. Crosby hasn't played since breaking his jaw last month. He took part in non-contact drills on Friday, wearing a protective facemask that he'll likely keep on for the duration of the postseason. The NHL's second-leading scorer says he...

Hurricanes end season with 8-3 loss to Penguins

Jaromir Jagr Fans in Philadelphia Sport Mullets, Jerseys From Entire Career (Photo)

Jaromir Jagr has been around the NHL for 19 seasons now, and over that time he’s become a pretty popular figure in the game. But more than that, Jagr’s gotten attention for not only his hockey skills and demeanor, but that sweet mullet from earlier in his career, too. On Tuesday the Bruins were down in Philadelphia, and it seems the hockey faithful in Pennsylvania still appreciate...

Flyers Squeak Past Isles 2-1 in Home Finalep

With nothing but pride on the line and a visibly smaller-than-normal crowd on hand at the Wells Fargo Center, the Philadelphia Flyers defeated the New York Islanders 2-1 in their last home game of the 2013 season. Ilya Bryzgalov got the start in net, sand saved 21 out of the 22 shots he faced for his 19th win of the season. He wasn't tested often, but that's a testament to...

Will Clarkson Remain With The Devils?

from Tom Gulitti of Fire & Ice, Clarkson said he hasn’t thought about whether tonight’s game against the Pittsburgh Penguins could be his last home game as a Devil. After facing the Penguins, the Devils close out the season Saturday afternoon against the Rangers at Madison Square Garden and Clarkson doesn’t know what will happen after that. “I haven’t really...

Flyers 2, Islanders 1

Oliver Lauridsen and Danny Briere scored goals to lead the Philadelphia Flyers to 2-1 win over the New York Islanders on Thursday.

Game 48 By the Numbers: Hurricanes at Penguins

The 2013 season mercifully came to a close for the Hurricanes last night and they ended things in painful fashion by getting blown out 8-3 by the Pittsburgh Penguins. It's somewhat of an appropriate ending for what has been an excruciating year for the Canes but at the very least, it clinched them a spot in the top-five of the NHL Entry Draft which they will hopefully put to...

it's an imaginary crown

This season.  What to even say about it?  It feels like a strange dream, an alternate universe.  In which Jussi Jokinen, Jarome Iginla, Brenden Morrow, and Douglas Murray are all Pens.  (It's a shame they're here for a short time--we've only just gotten used to their fuzzy faces burrowed in our hearts.)  Being tops in the East is a weird feeling.  Being "regular...
