from Craig Custance of ESPN, Philadelphia has managed to remain near the top of the Eastern Conference for most of the season despite missing its captain for the season with a concussion.

“A playoff run, a stretch run to make the playoffs—right...
Flyers defenseman Kimmo Timonen didn't hold back after Saturday's 5-2 defrocking of the Flyers by the Rangers.
That's five, straight Rangers wins against the Flyers this season.

“You weigh what the cost is,” Holmgren said. “I don’t have any trouble making a deal now that makes sense now or and for the future. “These rental deals, you just got to weigh the cost and make the call. Right now, none of those are coming to fruition for anyone, I don’t think.

PL: “I think there’s always different things. It’s not necessarily one thing. There are things we can do better in the neutral zone, as far as PK goes and end zone. Like I’ve said before we have a lot of new faces and different pieces in place here and we will continue to look at. We...

The Flyers fell to 4-8-1 this season in games that start before 7pm, and allowed at least goals...
Heading into last night's game in Detroit, everything was set up for Philly to lose the game and become the Red Wings' 20th consecutive victim on home ice. That is, in fact, what happened but the way that the Flyers lost the game was galling.
Even when the Flyers grabbed a pair of one-goal leads -- courtesy of a two-goal outburst from Brayden Schenn and a Max Talbot goal...

The Red Wings (37-17-2) will be looking to add one more record to the annals of the greatest franchise in hockey tonight, when they host the Flyers (31-17-7) in quest for 20 consecutive home wins.
