New York Islanders
Though their reasons are plenty different, Wednessday's upcomming game between the Flyers and the Montreal Canadiens is important for both teams as the regular season nears its end.
The Flyers (15-17-3) enter play on a season high-tying 2 game win streak following victories against Boston on Saturday and Washington on Sunday. They are six points behind the New York Islanders for the 8th and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference with 13 games to play. Philadelphia has yet to put together any kind of hot streak this season, and will likely need one in order to salvage what has been a disappointing, injury-filled season.
Wednesday's game is just as good a chance as any for the orange and black to get something started. Boston lies just a point behind Montreal in the Northeast Division standings at 50, and the Capitals had been surging as of late, so these wins carry some weight to them.
Montreal (23-7-5) comes into the Wells Fargo Center after soundly defeating their...

Wayne Simmonds and Erik Gustafsson scored goals late in the third period to lift the Philadelphia Flyers to a 5-3 win over the Montreal Canadiens on Wednesday night.
The Flyers had been 1-11 when trailing after two periods.
Trailing 3-2, Simmonds tipped in the puck from the crease for the tying goal. Less than 2 minutes later, Gustafsson's pass for Matt Read went off a defenseman...
In an effort to close up the gap between they and the 8th place Islanders, the Flyers made two trades. The first trade sent LW Harry Zolnierczyk to the Anaheim Ducks for minor league LW Jay Rosehill. No major improvements on either side, as it essentially swaps two depth guys. The second trade comes with a bit more aftershock, as Michael Leighton and a 2015 third round pick were...
(photo by Len Redkoles/NHLI via Getty Images) It has been quite blatant that the Philadelphia Flyers’ 8th overall pick in 2011 is suffering from what many call a “sophomore slump”. Sean Couturier netted 13 goals and had 14 assists for a combined total of 27 points in his rookie season. His defensive style of play [...]

Do you believe Flyers fans? The Philadelphia Flyers have somehow found a way to win another tough game, this time in Toronto against the Maple Leafs. Jay Rosehill deflected a Sean Couturier shot past James Reimer giving the Flyers a two goal lead that they wouldn’t relinquish. Early on Simon Gagne deflected in a shot [...]

Loser: Philadelphia Flyers
The Flyers traded Sergei Bobrovsky to Columbus last season – and now Bobrovsky is playing so well, he is a candidate for the Vezina Trophy as the NHL’s best goaltender. One theory: Bobrovsky is playing without the kind of pressure there is in Philadelphia. So now the Flyers have acquired a goaltender from...
Well just hours after the aquisition of Steve Mason as the new backup for Brygalov the high flying Canadiens took on the Flyers at the Wells Fargo Center. High flying is an understatement as the game started with end to end action. The shots were abounding the first 10minutes, 7-6, and with about 6:30 left in the first, the Montreal Canadiens struck first. Alexei Emelin wrists a...
