Found October 29, 2013 on Fightin For Philly:

Flyers head coach Craig Berube has found something that Peter Laviolette didn’t see: the deadly combination of Claude Giroux and Vincent Lecavalier. See the GIF (by SB Nation’s Broad Street Hockey) to see just how lethal the tandem’s playmaking ability is. Lecavalier had a hat trick in the Flyers’ 5-2 win over the Islanders, and is showing no signs of slowing down. Vinny is currently the Flyers’ leader with 5 goals on the season.


Having scored three goals, Flyers go for three straight wins

Vincent Lecavalier netted a hat trick in the Flyers 5-2 win on Saturday and now leads the team with four goals this season.

On Saturday, in their 10th game of the season, they broke the trend of scoring two goals or less, beating the Islanders, 5-2.  With that blemish removed following...

Divine Intervention May Be the Cause of the Flyers’ Recent Wins

As I reported last week, Flyers owner Ed Snider was in Rome during the Flyers’ 7 day break. Above you can see Snider and his wife meeting with the leader of the Roman Catholic Church, Pope Francis. Perhaps Pope Francis put in a word for the Flyers with the big man upstairs, because since that meeting the Flyers have won both of their games — including 5 goals in Saturday night’s...

Future Flyers Report: Laughton and Leier lead the way in offensive production

The pair of Scott Laughton and Taylor Leier have played the most games out of any of the Philadelphia Flyers’ prospects, and they are averaging over a point per game in the process. Ironically for both players, neither of them lead their junior teams in scoring. Laughton has 11 goals and eight helpers in the Oshawa Generals’ first 11 games this season. The forward sits third...

But as the energy disappeared, the Flyers quickly reverted back to old ways. The Anaheim Ducks would rally...

Flyers 'lucky' to be close in standings

Despite an awful start, the Flyers enter Tuesday’s game against visiting Anaheim just five points out of a playoff spot _ and with two games in hand on Carolina, the team holding that position. “Our division has been struggling at the start of the year,” center Sean Couturier said after Tuesday’s morning skate at the Wells Fargo Center. “We’re lucky we’re in that situation...

Op/Ed: The Thrill is Gone

There was a time when the Flyers would keep fans on the edge of their seats, a time when the team could never be counted out because they would somehow find ways to come back and win. A time when fans expected the Flyers to win because they were a good team, not because it’s what we wanted. That time is now over. Even in brief, exciting periods of time throughout games, there is...

The Flyers got off to a slow start in the first period, but once Read opened up the...
