Briere proving to be Philly's go-to guy

Flyers head coach Peter Laviolette, perhaps, said it best after his team's 4-3 overtime win over the New Jersey Devils Sunday: "There are people who answer the bell." Danny Briere is one of those people. Playing on a new line and under immense playoff pressure, Briere shined Sunday, scoring two goals, including the overtime game winner to give Philadelphia a 1-0 lead...

The NHL Shows No Love for the Flyers

The Philadelphia Flyers despite an amazing off-season remake of their team, a rookie leading goal scorer, a celebrity coach, a budding superstar and a surefire Hall of Famer elder statesman of the game were shut out of every single major NHL award this season. When Paul Holmgren was shut out of the Executive of the Year award in the NHL, I thought it was an oversight. I understood...

Flyers Beat The Devils 4-3 In OT To Win Game 1

A pretty exciting game to watch on a Sunday afternoon. The Flyers had a rough first period after a lengthy break, but picked it up after that. The Devils need to be much more responsible in their defensive zone in order to compete with Philadelphia. Here is the OT goal by Danny Briere… added 6:33pm, Watch below the Briere disallowed goal in OT, I thought the correct call...

Flyers Get Thrilling 4-3 Overtime Win…Twice

Danny Briere netted two (or three, if you count the one he kicked in) goals in the Flyers' 4-3 OT win against the New Jersey Devils in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals. The Philadelphia Flyers thought they won Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinals twice. But in the Stanley Cup playoffs, you only need to win once. Danny Briere, as usual, netted a couple of goals...

Playoff Preview: (5) Philadelphia Flyers vs. (6) New Jersey Devils

Familiar foes meet once again. These teams are bitter rivals, separating themselves by only a 1o0 mile stretch of highway alone 95 that runs down the heart of the Garden State. The Flyers rule south Jersey, while the Devils run the North, and no one wants to give any ground. The Flyers are a well rested team after coming off a circus of a series with the Pittsburgh Penguins, in...

Are You Satisfied With The Length Of The OT Games?

from Frank Seravalli of Frequent Flyers, If you feel like overtime games have been ending quickly, you’re not alone. Through the first 53 games of this Stanley Cup playoff season, 18 have gone to overtime (33.9 percent). The overtime in 8 out of those 18 games (44 percent) hasn’t even made it past the three-minute mark. Fans barely have enough time to grab a beer during the...

The Stars Have Left The Playoffs

from Damien Cox of the Toronto Star, Hope you had fun in the first round of the NHL playoffs. Fun just left town. Unless the Philadelphia Flyers can provide enough fireworks for the entire class, we appear destined for a second round of games in which 2-1 will be the third-period score most nights, highlight packages will be mighty thin and shot-blocking will be more prominent...

Devils-Flyers Preview

Jaromir Jagr's long hair that once flowed beneath his helmet is much shorter now, and his playoff beard has plenty of gray in it. Like the man he'll be shooting pucks at in the next round of the playoffs, Jagr is the old man in the dressing room these days. But both Jagr and Martin Brodeur have shown they have plenty of game left. The familiar foes will meet again when...
