Yikes. This photo was found on Gongshow Hockey Gear’s Facebook Page and presumably came from Tye McGinn himself. The Philadelphia Flyers rookie fought Toronto Maple Leafs forward Mike Brown on February 25th and clearly got the worst of it. McGinn knocked Brown early during the fight, but once Brown got back up, it was all over for McGinn. His jersey was ripped and his face cut and he was taken to the lockerroom. Evidently, things were worse than just a cut above the eye, and McGinn will miss about the next four weeks with a broken orbital bone that requires surgery. Amazingly enough, McGinn returned to the game and finished playing against the Maple Leafs. Mike Brown meanwhile was traded to the Edmonton Oilers on Monday for a conditional 4th round pick. Better to get traded than have you face broken though.

A busted up NHL player posted pictures of his battered and bruised face after a fight during a game last week and — thanks to a follower's comparison — shows an uncanny resemblance to the Star Wars character Darth Maul — or more like Darth mauled.
Philadelphia Flyers rookie Tye McGinn got into a fight last Monday but by the looks of things he is still felling the pain...
Flyers defenseman Andrej Meszaros, who has been sidelined since Jan. 24 with a separated shoulder, appears to be finally close to being ready to play. There is a chance he could be in the lineup tomorrow night when the Flyers play the Rangers. More will be known after practice today.
Prior to suffering the shoulder injury, Meszaros was playing surprisingly well over his first...

It was a slow first period at the Wells Fargo Center, something the Philadelphia Flyers were well used to this season. Neither Philadelphia nor their opponent for that evening, the Toronto Maple Leafs, could get anything generated offensively, leaving the fans somewhat restless. Naturally, head coach Peter Laviolette called upon his...
GET WELL SOON
I’m not sure what the Rangers’ Marc Staal ever did to the Flyers’ Kimmo Timonen, but I’m guessing Staal didn’t deserve this. And yes, I know it was a total fluke play. Timmonen wound up with a slap shot from just inside the blue line and the puck caromed off something in front of Staal before jumping up and getting him in the face. Staal was done in pain for nearly...

Been a while since the Flyers got to Carnival Sunday having WON the day before.
They almost always lose the day before the Flyers' Wives Fight for Lives Carnival. Almost a given.
Peter Laviolette doesn't believe in historical relevancy but there is such when it comes to the Flyers and their "third" month of the schedule. Usually, that is December and it&...
The Shanahammer has dropped again, and it will be costing Harry Zolnierczyk four games’ pay.
That the number of games the Philadelphia Flyers forward has been suspended by NHL safety honcho Brendan Shanahan after a reckless hit on Senators defenseman Mike Lundin. Zolnierczyk left his feet to deliver a brutal hit on Lundin during Saturday’s game in Philadelphia, for which he...
It only took them six weeks and 23 games but the Philadelphia Flyers have reached .500â¦finally!
After an abysmal start to the season that found themselves in the NHL basement, the Flyers have been scratching and clawing their way up the standings these past six weeks and, for now, sit eighth in the Eastern Conference. The problem is not that they're terrible, but as their...

Brendan Shanahan has made a ruling regarding Philadelphia Flyers winger Harry Zolnierczyk and his hit on Mike Lundin Saturday afternoon.
Zolnierczyk has been suspended four games for charging.
Shanahan explains in the video (below) that, "Instead of delivering a hard, legal check, he (Zolnierczyk) launches prior to the check making significant contact to Lundin's head....
I'm still attempting to recover from the announcement this morning that the Oilers dealt a 4th (or perhaps a 3rd round pick instead) to the Toronto Maple Leafs for Mike Brown. It's not that Brown's a bad chap. He plays hard every game; he hits and he fights. He's a decent 4th line forward and he'll be popular with fans in Edmonton.
The problem with the deal...
