As the Philadelphia Flyers prepare for their game Tuesday night against the Winnipeg Jets, another new face joins the Flyers lineup. The team has sent home center Sean Couturier, who is apparently battling flu-like symptoms. Couturier took part in the team’s skate Monday morning before their matchup with the Toronto Maple Leafs, but was scratched at the last moment. His absence inserted Tom Sestito into the starting lineup, and caused a massive shakeup in the lines. Philadelphia would drop Monday’s game to Toronto 5-2, and fall to a miserable 1-6 away from the Wells Fargo Center this year.
In Couturier’s place, Philadelphia has opted to call up left winger Harry Zolnierczyk from the Adirondack Phantoms. Undrafted in 2010, Philadelphia signed Zolnierczyk to an entry-level deal in 2011, and has been in the Flyers organization ever since.

The Philadelphia Flyers begin a season-long, six-game road trip Monday night, a moment in their season that will answer questions about a club that has sent mixed messages about its status in the Eastern Conference.

Time for: Patience
Why: The Flyers were getting perilously close to panic mode, but they staved it off by going 3-0-1 in their last four games, including a 4-3 overtime win against the Carolina Hurricanes on Saturday, when they blew a third-period lead but got a goal from Danny Briere in overtime.

The Flyers needed a blue collar type effort tonight at MTS Centre in Winnipeg after a dreadful performance last night against the Maple Leafs. They got it. One of the keys was a fast start… It kinda sorta went that […]
Hello all FLYERS fans out there please don't panic.... Yet. The 5-6-1 Philadelphia Flyers are starting meld together. Last season it took the Jagr-Giroux-Hartnell Line nine or so games to finally create one of the best front lines in the NHL in production. The Fly guys still need another offensive presence to replace Hartnell (Out with a broken foot). Right now teams across the...
The single greatest aspect of the Philadelphia Flyers is the “win now” attitude that Ed Snider has bred into the franchise.We, as fans, have always felt the Flyers would do everything in their power to ice the best team possible […]

The past week has been a wild one for these heartless bums known as your Philadelphia Flyers. A shootout loss to Florida, OT winner against the Staal’s (Canes), an absolute joke of a game at Toronto where my team showed […]
