Michael Leighton Out 7-10 Days, Brian Boucher Called Up

Brian Boucher during his time in Philadelphia in ’10. (Courtesy of NHL.com) The injury bug has not been kind to the Philadelphia Flyers in this lockout shortened season, and goalies have been no exception. Flyers GM Paul Holmgren has announced to the media that backup goaltender Michael Leighton will be out 7-10 days with what the team has described as an “upper body injury”...

Struggling Flyers' Forwards Begin to Step Up

In the early stages of this lockout-shortened season, the Philadelphia Flyers' offensive woes have been a main cause of a 5-6-1 start. In just three of the twelve games played, the Flyers scorers have found the back of the net more than three times.  With Scott Hartnell, who scored a team-leading 37 goals last season, sidelined by a foot injury, Claude Giroux struggling to find...

Game 10 Scoring Chances: Hurricanes at Flyers

Let's face it, the Hurricanes do not have a history of playing well against the Flyers, and this goes back to when the franchise was relocated to Raleigh. Since 1997, the Hurricanes have won only 30 of their 115 games against the Flyers and have earned points in a little over 36% of those games. Given that bit of information, some might be thankful that the Canes were able to...

Southern Cats Scratch Flyers

It would take a shootout to decide this snooze fest in Philadelphia. The Flyers didn’t get the start they wanted Thursday night against the Panthers, who spent much of the first 10 minutes of the game in the Flyers end. […]

Flyers-Maple Leafs Preview

Following a slow start, the Philadelphia Flyers got a much-needed boost from a successful homestand. Their next challenge is keeping that momentum going on their longest road trip of the season. In the opener of a six-game trek, the Flyers will try to add to the streaking Toronto Maple Leafs' home woes and continue their dominance in the series Monday night. Philadelphia (5...

Bill Meltzer: Meltzer's Musings: Sluggish Start, Anticlimactic Finish

Game 9: Hurricanes at Senators

Even though the Hurricanes won last night's game in overtime, their performance reminded me a lot of how they played last year. Not only were they heavily outshot, but the Senators had control for most of the game and the Hurricanes were forced to play in their own end more often than they would have liked. They were able to stay in the game and force overtime thanks to great...

Travis Yost: Cam Ward Steals One in Ottawa

Make sure to follow Travis on Twitter! -- The Ottawa Senators looked as good as they have all season, launching forty-seven shots in the direction of Carolina Hurricanes netminder Cam Ward. And, on most every quality chance Thursday night, Ward turned 'em away, stealing two big points the hard-way for his team in the process. Carolina 3, Ottawa 2 [OT]. For the majority...
