Found March 18, 2012 on The Broad Street Journal:

Wow. What a huge win! We were all worried it would go to a shootout, and luckily it didn’t, but who cares! All that matters is the Flyers won. They beat the NHL’s hottest team, gaining 3 points in the standings in the process.

I don’t know who I hate more,  the Penguins or the Rangers.

Although he gave up 2 goals, Ilya Bryzgalov once again looked sharp, making several key saves down the stretch.

Scott Hartnell played one of his best games of the season, scoring two goals, and playing down and dirty with the hated Penguins. I remember a time when Hartnell was an afterthought on the Flyers. Now, he’s one of their best players, and one of the best forwards in the NHL.

With 10 games remaining, and out of first place by just 3 points the Flyers next 4 opponents are Florida,  Washington, Montreal, and Tamp Bay.

Just yesterday we were saying how we hoped the Flyers would get the 4th seed.

Now it looks like 1st place isn’t out of the question.

Tim Panaccio: Pens Bring It, Hartnell Answers for Flyers

If the last two Flyer games didn't whet your appetite for playoff hockey, you're need to convert to the NBA.

Back in Bryzness + NHL94 Tourney!

A little over a month ago, if I would have told you that the Flyers would be heading into this past weekend’s brutal gauntlet of games riding a massive wave of emotional momentum caused by a record setting shutout streak by Ilya Bryzgalov, you probably would have laughed me into internet hibernation until my thirties. Furthermore, the idea of emerging from the weekend with 3 of...

Bill Meltzer: Meltzer's Musings: Comeback Kids

One thing about the 2011-12 Flyers: They never quit and never stop competing, even when they get outplayed by top opponents for long stretches of games. Now that the club is also getting top-notch goaltending from Ilya Bryzgalov, their ability to come back if they do trail in the game bodes very well for the rest of the stretch run and playoffs. If you look at the Flyers'...

Who Saw This Coming?

from Sam Carchidi of Broad Street Bull, Raise your hand if you thought this was going to happen three weeks ago: Boston’s Tim Thomas, the NHL’s best performer as he led the Bruins to last year’s Stanley Cup, would be struggling mightily, while Ilya Bryzgalov would be the league’s hottest goaltender. That’s what I thought. I don’t see many hands. In March, Thomas _ whose...
