Flyers’ Meszaros Out 6-8 Weeks; Kubina Day-to-Day

Flyers defenseman Andrej Meszaros will have surgery to clean up a herniated disk. He will be out of action for 6-8 weeks. Philadelphia Flyers General Manager Paul Holmgren gave brief updates on two of the team’s injured defensemen this afternoon.

Eric Wellwood Making the Most of His Opportunity

Image Courtesy of AP By Charlie O’Connor (@THG_Charlie) Entering the 2011-12 preseason, Philadelphia Flyers forward Eric Wellwood had a legitimate chance to earn a roster spot out of camp. Instead, the 22-year old found himself back in Adirondack for a second straight season. But following an injury to James van Riemsdyk in early March, Wellwood was given his first extended look...

Flyers Lose To Panthers 2-1

Game notes: Tonight’s power play goal for Florida was the first PPG scored against Ilya Bryzgalov since February 25 at Calgary.  It was just the third PPG allowed by the Flyers in the last 13 games.  Claude Giroux played a team-high 24:10 tonight, including more than 10 minutes in the first period.  He was 17-for-20 (85 percent) on faceoffs.  The Flyers’ 62-percent faceoff...

Game Day - FLA vs PHI

Flying high after a come-from-behind victory over the surging rival Penguins that ended their league-high winning streak, the Flyers will be facing a relatively hot Panthers team this evening with hopes of playing the role of streak-busters again. Florida has won four-straight, it’s longest such streak in almost four years of hockey, and is also riding hot goaltending as they cruise...

Capitals-Flyers Preview

Earlier this month in the nation's capital, Washington's Alex Ovechkin repeatedly shot the puck at Philadelphia goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov, but his Russian compatriot stopped every one of them. The two-time league MVP was slumping at that time, but has regained his scoring touch. Bryzgalov, meanwhile, has been stellar between the pipes all month. Coming off his second two...
