Matthew Barry: It's Time For Another Kings/Flyers Trade!

The Flyers are falling faster than Joan Rivers face. I'm absolutely shocked Laviolette still has a job. The players are even speaking SIGN language to him. But since the Flyers seems to love our players and prospects, and the Kings have done so well collecting former Flyers, maybe they would like to take a "flier" on a few more? (did you see what I did there...

Flyers Admit They Were Not Ready To Play

from Sam Carchidi of Broad Street Bull, The Flyers played without emotion and dropped a 5-2 decision, slipping into 14th place in the 15-team Eastern Conference, seven points behind the Rangers, who sit in the eighth and final playoff spot. The Flyers should have played each shift with desperation because their playoff lives are hanging by a thread. Instead, they showed...

Claude Giroux’s pulls off “Datsyukian” deke in shootout

Philadelphia Flyers forward Claude Giroux decided to channel his inner Pavel Datsyuk in the shootout against the New York Islanders on Thursday night.  While Datsyuk was dangling Logan Couture, Claude Giroux was busy making Evgeni Nabokov look silly.  Unfortunately for Giroux and the Flyers it would be the lone goal in the shootout for them as they lost to the Islanders 4-3. ...

Bill Meltzer: Meltzer's Musings: Season from Hell Continues

The 2013 Philadelphia Flyers are a deeply flawed team that can neither protect leads efficiently nor win games that are up for grabs. Therefore, it was no real surprise that the Flyers blew a 2-0 lead against the New York Islanders last night and went on to lose 4-3 via shootout. The problem is NOT that the players don't care. The team is just ill-assembled in general and...

As Penguins Get Iginla, Flyers Stay Put

  The pass and shot will echo through the eternal hockey halls for ages. It was in the gold medal game of the 2010 Olympics when a certain winger threaded a perfect pass between two USA defenders to find a swift-skated sniper, who prompted buried the rubber past a slow-to-react Ryan Miller. Those two unnamed identities? They’re about to be reunited. That’s right. ...

Dr Jekyll and Mr Pedan

Andrey Pedan (OHL Images) Tuesday night was a wild and crazy night for the New York Ranger and New York Islander prospects as the unexpected becomes even wilder by the game. If you were on a lower seeded team then in most cases your team won leaving higher seeded teams trying to figure out what happened. Andrey Pedan (NYI 2011 3rd) has to be the luckiest prospect out there as...

Islanders 4, Flyers 3, SO

Colin McDonald scored two goals, Josh Bailey tallied the clinching score in the shootout and the New York Islanders won again on the road, coming up with a 4-3 shootout victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Thursday night. John Tavares also scored for New York, which won its fourth straight on the road while improving to 10-4-1 away from home this season to pull into a tie with...

To the brink

Brenden Kichton (Spokane Chiefs) Just 3 games on the Thursday playoff schedule and all involving New York Islander prospects which resulted in 2 losses and 1 escape. Depending on your point of view then the 2 losses mean that the Islanders are this much closer to adding 2 talented prospects to their system. One who nobody is really sure what is going to happen when Brenden Kichton...

Dee Karl: The Tavares Line: From Zero to Hero

People forget hockey is a ‘game.’ As such, even the best at it will have their bad days and bad plays. That was all too evident last night against the Washington Capitals. The Islanders took an early two goal lead over the Capitals and it was in spite of their top line of John Tavares, Matt Moulson and Brad Boyes. Not only did I have to hear that fact in my own home...

Islanders 3, Capitals 2

John Tavares broke a tie with 5:18 left to help the New York Islanders beat the Washington Capitals 3-2 on Tuesday night. Matt Moulson forced a turnover by Washington defenseman Mike Green next to the Capitals' net and fed Tavares in the right circle for his 20th goal of the season. Michael Grabner and Josh Bailey also scored for the Islanders. Mike Ribeiro and John Carlson...

Preview: Flyers vs. Islanders 3/28/2013

The slumping Flyers face-off with the New York Islanders in the second game of five straight at the Wells Fargo Center at 7PM on Thursday night. After dropping game one of the home-stand 5-2 to the New York Rangers Tuesday night, the Flyers look to repeat their previous performance against the Islanders, a 7-0 drubbing [...]

Dee Karl: Isles: To Know Them Is To Love Them

Just a quick hit today as Art Staple has tweeted out the contact discussions for Lubomir Visnovky remaining with the Islanders are under way and are "very positive." I find it increasingly amusing that with the exception of Ryan Miller, the players who were most resistant to joining the Islanders are the ones that end up very happy to remain. Look at the case of Evgeni...

Islanders-Flyers Preview

The New York Islanders haven't been at their best at home, but their play on the road has them eying what could be their first playoff berth in six years. The Philadelphia Flyers continue to spiral out of contention, and are in danger of missing out on the postseason for the first time in six years. New York looks to win a fourth straight road game and send the Flyers to a...
