Hoo boy. Way to class it up there, guy. Yeesh. A fitting punishment for this dolt’s terribly insensitive and inappropriate customized jersey would be to allow Wayne Simmonds do what the Philadelphia Flyers forward did to Tampa Bay Lightning defenseman Eric Brewer earlier this season, although I imagine Simmonds would likely do what I’m doing [...]

Jagr Believes

from Frank Seravalli of the Philadelphia Daily News via the Sacramento Bee, Inside Jaromir Jagr’s locker stall, in the bowels of the Wells Fargo Center and any arena where the Flyers play, a small memento is wrapped in blue felt. It is a trifold, no more than six inches in length. It sits next to Jagr’s hockey tape, stick wax, and various weights and braces and training contraptions...

Where Have You Gone, Claude Giroux?

13 days ago, Claude Giroux sent a statement to the hockey world in Game 6 of the Flyers' opening round series with their hated in-state rivals from Pittsburgh. Giroux, who asked head coach Peter Laviolette to start the game and then told Danny Briere to "watch this" seconds before faceoff, laid out Penguins superstar Sidney Crosby and fired a shot past Marc-Andre...

Bryz Not To Blame for Flyers Poor Play in Game 2

The Philadelphia Flyers were out hustled in their 4-1 loss to the New Jersey Devils on Tuesday. They were out shot, out shone and out hustled. Aside from the first 10-15 minutes of the game, the Flyers were a disaster. Some fans have turned to Ilya Bryzgalov as the scapegoat for the loss. My first question is what game were these people watching? If not for Ilya Bryzgalov, the...

Tim Panaccio: Where's the Jam?

The game sheet from the Flyers 4-3 overtime loss in New Jersey on Thursday has the Flyers with 27 hits. That's about two dozen more in Game 3 than I saw. Where's the 'jam' as Peter Laviolette likes to say? The Flyers are being pushed around in all three zones. They're light on the puck. Their forecheck isn't very good. The Devils get the puck and cycle...

Flyers Have Their Backs Against the Wall After OT Loss

It was to be their final line change of the game. With Erik Gustaffson and Brayden Schenn caught, Ilya Kovalchuk launched a nifty long pass down the ice and found Alexei Ponikarovsky streaking toward the net 1-on-1 against Andreas Lilja. He took one shot that Bryzgalov stopped, but the puck bounced back to him and he slid it into the net for an overtime winner. Just like that the...

Casual, Jam-Less Flyers Poop The Bed in Game 3 Overtime Loss

Where was the timeout tonight Pete?   I don’t know about you but I’m tired of people saying, “we’re still the better team”, or “we’ll still win the series”. People are saying this even after this overtime loss the the Devils tonight. This is the exact same attitude that has the Flyers in this position to begin with. I do agree, that overall, the Flyers are the better...

Philadelphia bar offering ‘Crosby Tears’ as one of its draft beers

If the Flyers’ pursuit of the Stanley Cup ends this round at the hands of the Devils, at least they beat the Penguins. For many fans in the Philadelphia area, that will likely be the mindset. The Flyers knocked off the Penguins with relative ease in the opening round of the playoffs and they have certainly had their fair share of fun with it. First there was this insulting Philly...

New Jersey Devils Blast Past Philadelphia Flyers to Even Series (Video)

PHILADELPHIA -- Adam Larsson watched Game 1 from the press box, dressed sharply in a suit and tie. From the rafters, he sat helplessly as he watched his New Jersey Devils lose a tough road opener in this Eastern Conference semifinal series against the Flyers in overtime. In Game 2, though, he received his chance to shed the suit and don a uniform. And the 19-year-old rookie took...

Rookie making playoff debut scores key goal in Devils' victory

PHILADELPHIA - Philadelphia Flyers goalie Ilya Bryzgalov made one big save after another until a rookie playing his first playoff game put one in. That got the New Jersey Devils going. David Clarkson followed by scoring the tiebreaking goal with 8:43 left and the Devils rallied to beat the Flyers 4-1 in Game 2 Tuesday night, evening their Eastern Conference semifinals series...

Negative Jam: Devils Drop Flyers 4-1 in Game 2

So far against the New Jersey Devils, the Flyers have put together a solid 60 minutes of hockey. The problem is, they're two games into this second round playoff series. The Flyers came out with some serious jam in the first period on Tuesday night, putting 9 shots on goal, crashing the net and generally making life miserable for Martin Brodeur, who looked for most of the period...
