Found April 05, 2012 on The Pensblog:
The fourth seed in the East is clinched. Malkin picked up his 49th. Orpik was ejected for a knee-on-knee hit. The Flyers clinched 5th with their win so now we head into possibly eight-straight games against the Flyers. Get ready to redefine what "hate" means to you. It will be interesting to see who's in the line-up for the Pens and Flyers on Saturday. Buckle up. The playoffs are just around the corner. Best time of the year.

Restaurant owner to Flyers: 'No ribs for you'

If the Philadelphia Flyers want to win in Pittsburgh on Saturday— and in the first round of their probable first round Stanley Cup playoff series— they will have to do it without their good luck charm— buckets of ribs from their favorite BBQ joint. Peter Laviolette said the reason for the Flyers' recent success against the Penguins in Pittsburgh is because DeeJay's...

No Concussion for Rupp After Fight With Shelley

Mike Rupp's fight with Jody Shelley wasn't one of the most memorable of his career as he took a beating from the former Ranger.What's more concerning, however, is that Rupp only played one shift for the remainder of the game because of an apparent neck injury he sustained during the fight. Jim Cerny of the Rangers gave this status on Rupp yesterday...Rupp told me last...

Flyers and D Nicklas Grossmann Agree to Extension

The Flyers made a very smart move today by signing defenseman Nicklas Grossmann to a multi-year contract extension. Grossmann was acquired ahead of the NHL trade deadline in February, and has done a tremendous job for the Flyers. Grossmann’s size (6’4″, 230 pounds) has given the Flyers a big presence in front of the net, something that had been sorely lacking since Chris Pronger’s...

Penguins, Flyers weighing how to play finale

There will be nothing on the line when the Pittsburgh Penguins and Philadelphia Flyers face each other in the regular-season finale on Saturday. The Penguins have already locked in the fourth seed in the Eastern Conference and will host the fifth-seeded Flyers when the playoffs begin next week. The game is meaningless in the standings but not in the minds of the players. The Flyers...

Flyers Sign Phantoms’ Ford to Two-Way Deal

Photo Courtesy Adirondack Phantoms/www.mcall.com   By: Tyler J. Altemose (@TJamesAltemose) Renaud Lavoie, reporter for RDS.ca, announced early Wednesday morning that the Philadelphia Flyers have signed Phantoms RW Matt Ford to a two-way, $600,000 deal for the 2012-13 season. Ford has been a consistently powerful force on the right side for the Flyers’ AHL affiliate Adirondack...

Tim Panaccio: Locking Up The Big Swede

As I reported earlier tonight on CSNPhilly.com, Nicklas Grossmann's new deal with the Flyers is 4 years for $14 million. His cap hit is $3.5 million. This is a terrific, manageable contract for the Flyers. They get a physical defenseman who is a crease-clearer and just 27-years of age at a time when Matt Carle will likely not be re-signed and Chris Pronger's career...

Flyers snuff out Sabres' playoff hopes

Rookie Matt Read scored to snap a tie with just under 4 1/2 minutes remaining in the third period as the host Philadelphia Flyers knocked the Buffalo Sabres out of postseason contention with a 2-1 victory. The Sabres were officially eliminated moments after their loss to Philadelphia, as Washington finished off a 4-2 victory over Florida. Defenseman Marc-Andre Bourdon scored and...

GARTH: The Run Is Done

The miracle run to the eighth seed has come to a swift and abrupt halt. Two third period goals by the Flyers spelled doom and gloom for the Sabres. Two mistakes is all it took. On the first Flyers goal, MA Boudon's point shot appeared to dip as it eluded Miller. On the Matt Read GWG, Sekera and Regehr blew coverage. One Reggie pinched at the wrong time with the...

Flyers Down Sabres in "Irrelevant" Game 81 To Clinch 5th Seed, Pre-Game Awards Presented

Coming into Thursday night, the Flyers still had a legitimate chance at obtaining home ice advantage. All they had to do was take care of business against the Buffalo Sabres (who were fighting for their playoff lives themselves) and take down the Penguins on Saturday. The Flyers certainly did what they needed to do, downing the Buffalo Sabres 2-1 in dramatic fashion. Matt Read'...

Bill Meltzer: Flyers Gameday: 4/5/12 vs. Sabres

Flyers-Penguins Preview

Flying sticks. Pointed fingers. Postgame putdowns. And that was just the coaches. What can the Pittsburgh Penguins and Philadelphia Flyers possibly do in Saturday's regular-season finale to top their last meeting, a 6-4 Flyers win at Consol Energy Center this week that served as a preview of what will be a contentious first-round playoff series? The smart answer might be nothing...
