"The procedure will...
Yesterday's news about Chris Pronger needing arthroscopic knee surgery (this time on his left knee) could not have come at a worse time for the team.
In the short term, the club learned it will be without its captain and top defenseman for a month just as it is about to embark on it most grueling travel month of the season. Last year, the Flyers thrived without Pronger during...

Jim Rutherford has been a busy man the last couple of days as he has now claimed 24-year old winger Andreas Nodl off waivers from the Philadelphia Flyers. At first, I didn't think much of this move because Nodl appeared to be nothing more than a depth forward and I assumed the 11 goals and 22 points he had last season was a product of playing on a line with Mike Richards.

This promo video from the Adirondack Phantoms, the Philadelphia Flyers' AHL affiliate, needed three things to perfectly capture the 1980s MTV aesthetic it's going for: a cameo by Martha Quinn, a model/actress writhing on the hood of a Camaro and/or Thunderbird, and a prolonged sax solo … even if Starship's "We Built This City [On Rock and Roll]" didn't...
Here, for the second time today, is the teaser for HBO's much-anticipated 24/7 Flyers Rangers, which should serve to get you appropriately excited for program. It's worth a revisit, especially in light of the delicious back-and-f0rth it has spawned between Jody Shelley and Brandon Dubinsky.
