Philadelphia Flyers defensemen Kimmo Timonen and Andrej Meszaros are out indefinitely with lower-body injuries.
Sitting out Sunday night against the Washington Capitals ended Timonen's streak of consecutive games at 248, the Flyers' longest active run. He has two goals and 34 assists in 63 games this season.
Meszaros has seven goals and 18 assists in 62 games this season...
Ilya Bryzgalov's most impressive save Sunday came off the face of Philadelphia Flyers teammate Pavel Kubina.
Bryzgalov used his blocker to shrug off the third-period volley initiated by Washington Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin, one of 34 saves in the Flyers' 1-0 victory at Verizon Center. More games like this and maybe "embattled" or any other negative adjective...
Flyers defenseman Andrej Meszaros has been listed as out indefinitely, leaving the Flyers short defenseman, once again.
The Philadelphia Flyers made moves near the NHL trade deadline to bolster a defense that was sorely missing Chris Pronger. It’s a good thing that Paul Holmgren targeted defense, because two more of the Flyers’ top defensemen, All Star Kimmo Timonen and Andrej...
from Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer via the Sacramento Bee, Flyers goalie Ilya Bryzgalov looks as if he is finally starting to get his mojo back.
Or as the Five-Man Electrical Band put it, long before Bryzgalov was born:
“Sign, sign, everywhere a sign ...
Sign: Bryzgalov stopped four of five shots as the Flyers actually won a shootout (Stop the presses!) in Calgary...
from Frank Seravalli of Frequent Flyers at the Philadelphia Daily News, On Monday at practice, Flyers coach Peter Laviolette was asked whether an important on-ice ceremony – like watching Mark Howe’s No. 2 being raised to the rafters tonight at the Wells Fargo Center – can help motivate his players.
Initially, I dismissed the notion. How could a player who most of these current...
The Philadelphia Flyers announced today that they have recalled 5-11, 180-lb LW Eric Wellwood from their American Hockey League affiliate, the Adirondack Phantoms, according to general manager Paul Holmgren. Wellwood will be available for the club’s game at Washington on Sunday night and will wear #47.
This is the fourth recall of the season for Wellwood, who turns 22 on Tuesday...
Paul Holmgren: "Kimmo Timonen and Andrej Meszaros will be out indefinitely with lower body injuries."
Ilya Bryzgalov recorded his third shutout of the season. He is just the third Flyers goaltender to record three shutouts in a season since the lockout (Biron 5, 07-08; Emery 3, 09-10).
The game was the Flyers’ first 1-0 win since Dec. 30, 2007 at Florida (Niittymaki).
Claude Giroux took 10 faceoffs tonight, the fewest he’s taken in a game this season.
You never know what you're going to get on a particular day when you walk into a dressing room.
After watching Ilya Bryzgalov over the last several weeks, I feel he has gotten his act together since coming back from the flu. Yeah, he had a couple gaffes in giving up the first goal on the first shot, but his game seems to be getting better.
He exudes confidence.
Eric Wellwood scored less than a minute after Philadelphia coach Peter Laviolette called a timeout to give his players an earful, and Ilya Bryzgalov made 34 saves, leading the Flyers to a 1-0 victory over the Washington Capitals on Sunday night.
Bryzgalov earned his third shutout of the season, and the 26th of his career, even though the Flyers were missing two defensemen who sat...
After going 2-3-1 in their past six games, DET (43-20-3) are now second in the Central Division. Although even with STL at 89 points, the Blues own the tie-breaker, having one more regulation/overtime win. The to-be-avoided-at-all-costs 4-5 matchup, today, would see DET opening the playoffs against NSH (2-7 match-up would be against PHX). Things won’t be easy for the Wings...
Over the course of the Flyers' recent westerly road trip and home victory over the Islanders, Ilya Bryzgalov's game started to come together. There were still some letdowns and potentially stoppable early-game goals against, but the goaltender increasingly stepped up in crunch time.
Last night, it all came together in a 1-0 road win in Washington. By the early stages...
It feels a bit strange to have a Saturday without a Flyers game. Excluding the All-Star Game weekend, the Winter Classic Alumni Game on New Years Eve day and Christmas Eve, the Flyers have been in action on every Saturday but one (Nov. 12) this season. Two of the aforementioned open dates for the team were league-wide off-days.
The Flyers took a total off-day yesterday, with...
PREVIEW 4 AM EST
Looking for their third consecutive victory and fourth in the last five games, the Philadelphia Flyers (36-21-7) return to home ice tonight to take on the always-dangerous Detroit Red Wings (43-20-3) at the Wells Fargo Center on Mark Howe Jersey Retirement Night. The ceremony will take place prior to the start of tonight's game at 7 p.m. EST. Both the Howe...
