As camera crews for Home Box Office’s ”24/7″ series have made their way through the Philadelphia Flyers’ locker room for the past month in anticipation of the NHL Winter Classic, there is an expectation of something special.

Amid all of the ballyhoo, defenseman Matt Carle tries not to act any differently with all of the extra attention.
“It’s a little different having those guys around as much as they are,” the 27-year-old rear guard said after

The National Hockey League has reported an increase in concussions over the past few weeks and the Philadelphia Flyers are one of the teams hit hard with two key players being lost to concussions.
The Orange and Black first got the news that their captain, Chris Pronger, would be out for the rest of the season [...]
Ladies and Gentlemen... the worst kept secret in all of professional hockey has been revealed. No, I'm not talking about the end of Chris Pronger's career... I'm talking about the new Head Coach of the Los Angeles Kings.
Let's do this, *******.
Hmm, let's see. A good friend of Dean Lombardi's. A hard-nosed, defensive-minded coach. Once lost a Stanley Cup...
from Josh Cooper of the Tennessean, It all seems to make a lot of sense. Philadelphia Flyers star defenseman Chris Pronger is out for the season. The Flyers and Predators have made trades before. Nashville has two elite defensemen on its roster in Shea Weber and Ryan Suter. I asked David Poile about some of the speculation on Philadelphia and Nashville talking trade, and this is...
HBO 24/7 returns tonight at 10pm. Interesting storylines in this one to say the least. Chris Pronger officially being ruled out for the year, the Flyers 6-0 loss to the Boston Bruins, and the lame "broadway hat" that the Rangers are wearing.

The Philadelphia Flyers recently suffered a huge blow to their lineup, as the team announced on Thursday that captain Chris Pronger will miss the remainder of the 2011-2012 regular season, as well as the 2012 playoffs.
Some have even questioned whether Pronger will ever be able to play in the NHL ever again, based...
My latest podcast features a visit with two Philadelphia Flyers beat writers – Frank Seravalli of the Philadelphia Daily News and Anthony Sanfilippo of the Delaware County Times. Not only do we talk about the Flyers, but thoughts on Chris Pronger, Mike Milbury, the whole concussion issue facing the league, the HBO cameras around the Flyers all the time right...
It’s amazing how many people have latched onto the idea that the Philadelphia Flyers should trade for Ryan Suter or Shea Weber from the Nashville Predators the minute that it was announced Chris Pronger would not play for the rest of the season.
Never mind the fact that the Flyers would have to perform some serious [...]
1 Boston (21-9-1) The Bruins are on pace for a plus-124 goal differential. That would be the best number since the 1995-96 Red Wings were plus-144. Of course, that didn’t translate into a Stanley Cup for the Wings.
2 Chicago (21-8-4) The 2.88 goals per game they’re allowing are the most since they gave up 3.06 per game in 2006-07. Ray Emery, however, is 6-0-1 in December...
