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&...
Philadelphia Flyers forward Harry Zolnierczyk is no stranger to throwing questionable hits at his opponents. On Wednesday, he was given a five-minute major and a game misconduct for kneeing Washington Capitals forward Mathieu Perreault. It was reviewed by Brendan Shanahan and determined he hit him in the thigh and not on the knee.
On Saturday, Zolnierczyk leveled Ottawa Senators...

After a slow start to the season, the Philadelphia Flyers are starting to pick up steam.
They're surely feeling good about their chances of keeping things going with Simon Gagne back in town.
