The Philadelphia Flyers have lost two more players’ services due to injuries, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer’s Sam Carchidi: The injury bug continues to hit the Flyers. After Friday’s 3-1 win over the Montreal Canadiens at the Wells Fargo Center, general manager Paul Holmgren said that defenseman Andreas Lilja could miss six weeks after suffering a high ankle sprain. The injury occurred in the second period. In addition, the three players who were scratched on Friday, Chris Pronger, James van Riemsdyk and Jaromir Jagr, won’t make the trip to New York for Saturday’s game with the Rangers. Pronger missed his third game with what is believed to be a virus. Van Riemsdyk suffered an upper body injury in Wednesday’s 4-3 overtime win against the host New York Islanders. Jagr reaggravated his groin in the same game. The Flyers issued an earlier statement that van Riemsdyk is expected out 1-2 weeks, and Holmgren said a best-case scenario for his return would be Friday, Dec. 2 at ...

The irony behind the Flyers early-season success

Getty Images BY: DUSTIN POLLACK Thursday, June 23rd 2011. In just one day, the Philadelphia Flyers changed the entire make up of their franchise. Out was captain Mike Richards and leading-scorer Jeff Carter and in was what the Flyers had seemingly needed for years, a proven goaltender.

Phillies take note: Flyers’ youth being served in NHL resurgence

I have to give credit to the Philadelphia Flyers and general manager Paul Holmgren. A year after making the Stanley Cup finals, they lost in the second round to the Boston Bruins, the eventual Stanley Cup champion. (Hey, the championship, all of them, except the Sixers, come through Philly). Did Holmgren stand pat? Nope. He traded away not-so-old veterans Jeff Carter and...
