The Vancouver Canucks don’t exactly have an identity crisis but they have yet to really forge one under new coach John Tortorella.
You half expected Tortorella might have his players run those famous Rocky Steps here in the City of Brotherly Love following Monday’s noon-hour practice at the University of Pennsylvania.
After all Rocky Balboa was all about guts and determination...

Immediately after the Flyers disposed of their cross-state rival Penguins in six games in the first round of the 2012 playoffs, Giroux went from rising superstar to the king of the NHL mountain.

The Philadelphia Flyers have stumbled out of the gates this season, and on Tuesday night, they were able to encompass their entire campaign with one unfortunate play.
The 1-6 Philly team jumped out to a rare lead in the first quarter against Vancouver after Tye McGinn recorded a tally, but their happiness was short-lived as the Canucks knotted up the score seconds later with the...
Claude Giroux scored in the Flyers last meeting with the Vancouver Canucks in 2011, a 5-4 Flyers win.
It has been a week since the Flyers made a coaching change and picked up their first win of the season. They also lost both games in back-to-back games over the weekend.
Following losses to the Western Conference's Phoenix Coyotes and former West foe Detroit Red Wings, another...
It’s difficult to miss Chris Pronger even when he’s wearing a suit and tie instead of hockey equipment. That’s largely because he’s so big but he’s also loud and boisterous and draws a crowd.

The Flyers blew a third period lead and lost to the Vancouver Canucks 3-2 on Tuesday night.

Now in the new Metropolitan Division, the Pittsburgh Penguins and Philadelphia Flyers are in the same spots they were most of last season.
The Penguins are at the top as the division's highest-scoring team, and the Flyers are at the bottom due greatly to a woeful offense heading into these rivals' season series opener Thursday night in Philadelphia.
Sidney Crosby has keyed...
