The Flyers tacked another game onto their win streak on Saturday afternoon after defeating the Calgary Flames in a 2-1 effort. Brayden Schenn and Claude Giroux scored for the Flyers, while Matt Stajan got Calgary’s lone goal. Philadelphia’s Ray Emery came up big in net, making 32 of 33 saves. Reto Berra stopped 21 of the Flyers’ 23 shots.
A quiet first period where both teams appeared a bit sloppy with the puck (a few whiffs, a few bad passes) gave way to a not-so-pretty second for the Flyers. Despite their sleepy play, they managed to score on one of Schenn’s many chances of the afternoon, a goal assisted by Wayne Simmonds and Andrej Meszaros. Calgary got 11 shots in on Ray Emery in the middle period, but as in the first, Emery came up big and held on to the one-goal lead for the team. Both the Flyers and the Flames took two penalties apiece, but neither team was able to capitalize on the man advantage and Philadelphia closed out the period with the lead. The Flames led in shots, ...

The Flyers host the Calgary Flames today in the final game before the NHL takes a break so players can go play in the Olympics. The Flyers are sending 5 players.

A rumor came up the other day from Hockey Buzz that the Flyers are making a push to trade for Hurricanes defenseman Ron Hainsey.
From the article:
I am hearing that the Flyers are very much interested in picking up Carolina’s Ron Hainsey as a puck-moving rental for the rest of the season. The sticking points: 1) Carolina is still very much in the playoff chase...
In their fifth season of existence, the scrappy Philadelphia Flyers were clawing their way up the ladder in the then -West Division standings. On February 8, 1972, they set out on a five-game road trip, starting in Vancouver to play the Canucks. In goal that evening was Bruce Gamble, a 33-year-old veteran who had almost 300 NHL games under his belt at the time of the game. Bruce...
Philadelphia Flyers owner Ed Snider is not often one to hold back with his comments and he certainly didn't when he addressed his frustration with the NHL's participation in the Olympics.
I hate them. It's ridiculous, the whole thing is ridiculous,” Snider said. “I don't care if it is in Philadelphia, I wouldn't want to break up the league. I think it'...

If the decision to send NHL players to the Winter Olympics or keep them in North America and not shut down the league for two weeks was in the hands of Philadelphia Flyers owner Ed Snider, the likes of Patrick Kane, Tuukka Rask and Sidney Crosby wouldn’t be competing in Sochi next week.
“I hate them,” Snider said of the Olympics on Thursday night, per The Associated Press...
FLYING INTO THE OLYMPIC BREAK
It wasn't the prettiest or best-played of games, but the Philadelphia Flyers did just enough to skate off with a 2-1 win over the Calgary Flames at the Wells Fargo Center yesterday afternoon. Ray Emery authored 32 saves, making a second-period goal by Brayden Schenn and a third-period deflection goal by Scott Hartnell hold up for the regulation...
The Flyers will go into the Olympic break on a high note after defeating the Calgary Flames 2-1 this afternoon at the Wells Fargo Center. They have now won 4 in a row and 5 of the last 6. ‘You know, it’s good,’ Flyers forward Wayne Simmonds said. ‘Obviously we have a good feeling going into the break and that’s what we wanted. We have a lot of time off and we’ve got to...
The Calgary Flames don’t have much in the way of good fortune this year. They are the second-worst team in the Western Conference and are in the bottom five of the NHL.
However, there are bright spots in their lineup. Sean Monahan has proved to be a great pick and will only get better. Their goaltending hasn’t been horrible this season, although Karri Ramo hasn’t come as advertised...
MASON MAGNIFICENT IN 3-1 WIN OVER AVS
Navigating a treacherous road in the waning games before the Olympic break, the Philadelphia Flyers have posted a 4-1-0 record over their last five games. They have done it against tough opposition.
Last night at the Wells Fargo Center, the Flyers had to elevate their two-way play and receive phenomenal goaltending to hold off the Colorado...
If the Philadelphia Flyers and Calgary Flames had their way, they'd probably do without the Olympic break altogether.
Instead, they'll have to settle for being two of the league's hottest clubs heading into the two-week layoff.
The Flyers go for a fourth straight win while the Flames seek a seventh victory in eight games Saturday in Philadelphia.
The Flyers (29-23...
Jiri Hudler, who played seven seasons in Detroit, is doing well for the Calgary Flames these days.
In 57 games this season, he has 14 goals and 29 assists, and it was complete shocker that he was left off the Czech Republic Olympic hockey team that will compete in Sochi beginning next week.
Hudler should stick to hockey, though.
Donned in his Flames uniform, minus skates, cameras...
Your browser does not support iframes. Jiri Hudler must have taken notice that the Los Angeles Lakers were shorthanded the other night, so the Flames forward practiced with the team in hopes of making the squad. Dressed in full pads the hockey player worked on his free throws with Lakers coach Larry Lewis at the Wells Fargo Center. However Lewis was not about to give up any freebies...
