Bryzgalov lives up to billing against Caps

Ilya Bryzgalov's most impressive save Sunday came off the face of Philadelphia Flyers teammate Pavel Kubina. Bryzgalov used his blocker to shrug off the third-period volley initiated by Washington Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin, one of 34 saves in the Flyers' 1-0 victory at Verizon Center. More games like this and maybe "embattled" or any other negative adjective...

Flyers Ds Timonen, Meszaros out indefinitely

Philadelphia Flyers defensemen Kimmo Timonen and Andrej Meszaros are out indefinitely with lower-body injuries. Sitting out Sunday night against the Washington Capitals ended Timonen's streak of consecutive games at 248, the Flyers' longest active run. He has two goals and 34 assists in 63 games this season. Meszaros has seven goals and 18 assists in 62 games this season...

Flyers are Down on D… Again

Flyers defenseman Andrej Meszaros has been listed as out indefinitely, leaving the Flyers short defenseman, once again. The Philadelphia Flyers made moves near the NHL trade deadline to bolster a defense that was sorely missing Chris Pronger. It’s a good thing that Paul Holmgren targeted defense, because two more of the Flyers’ top defensemen, All Star Kimmo Timonen and Andrej...

Bryzgalov’s Game Is Coming Around

from Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer via the Sacramento Bee, Flyers goalie Ilya Bryzgalov looks as if he is finally starting to get his mojo back. Or as the Five-Man Electrical Band put it, long before Bryzgalov was born: “Sign, sign, everywhere a sign ... Sign: Bryzgalov stopped four of five shots as the Flyers actually won a shootout (Stop the presses!) in Calgary...

Flyers Recall Eric Wellwood

The Philadelphia Flyers announced today that they have recalled 5-11, 180-lb LW Eric Wellwood from their American Hockey League affiliate, the Adirondack Phantoms, according to general manager Paul Holmgren.  Wellwood will be available for the club’s game at Washington on Sunday night and will wear #47. This is the fourth recall of the season for Wellwood, who turns 22 on Tuesday...

Flyers Beat Washington 1-0 Behind Outstanding Effort By Bryzgalov

Game notes: Ilya Bryzgalov recorded his third shutout of the season.  He is just the third Flyers goaltender to record three shutouts in a season since the lockout (Biron 5, 07-08; Emery 3, 09-10).  The game was the Flyers’ first 1-0 win since Dec. 30, 2007 at Florida (Niittymaki). Claude Giroux took 10 faceoffs tonight, the fewest he’s taken in a game this season.  The Flyers’...

Tim Panaccio: Flyers Embracing the New Bryz

You never know what you're going to get on a particular day when you walk into a dressing room. After watching Ilya Bryzgalov over the last several weeks, I feel he has gotten his act together since coming back from the flu. Yeah, he had a couple gaffes in giving up the first goal on the first shot, but his game seems to be getting better. He exudes confidence. There...

This Day In NHL History: Sens And Flyers Get Physical

On this day eight years ago, the Philadelphia Flyers and Ottawa Senators set the NHL record with 419 combined penalty minutes in a single game. All but 22 minutes of that time came with under two minutes to play in the third period.Enforcers, Donald Brashear and Rob Ray got things started when the two squared off in the the Philadelphia zone. When the two were finished and on their...

Flyers 1, Capitals 0

Eric Wellwood scored less than a minute after Philadelphia coach Peter Laviolette called a timeout to give his players an earful, and Ilya Bryzgalov made 34 saves, leading the Flyers to a 1-0 victory over the Washington Capitals on Sunday night. Bryzgalov earned his third shutout of the season, and the 26th of his career, even though the Flyers were missing two defensemen who sat...

Bill Meltzer: Meltzer's Musings: 3/5/12

Over the course of the Flyers' recent westerly road trip and home victory over the Islanders, Ilya Bryzgalov's game started to come together. There were still some letdowns and potentially stoppable early-game goals against, but the goaltender increasingly stepped up in crunch time. Last night, it all came together in a 1-0 road win in Washington. By the early stages...

Bill Meltzer: Meltzer's Musings: 3/3/12

It feels a bit strange to have a Saturday without a Flyers game. Excluding the All-Star Game weekend, the Winter Classic Alumni Game on New Years Eve day and Christmas Eve, the Flyers have been in action on every Saturday but one (Nov. 12) this season. Two of the aforementioned open dates for the team were league-wide off-days. The Flyers took a total off-day yesterday, with...

Bill Meltzer: Flyers Gameday: 3/6/12 vs Red Wings (Mark Howe Night)

PREVIEW 4 AM EST Looking for their third consecutive victory and fourth in the last five games, the Philadelphia Flyers (36-21-7) return to home ice tonight to take on the always-dangerous Detroit Red Wings (43-20-3) at the Wells Fargo Center on Mark Howe Jersey Retirement Night. The ceremony will take place prior to the start of tonight's game at 7 p.m. EST. Both the Howe...

Flyers Agree To Contract With Goalie

Paul Holmgren announced that the Flyers have agreed to a two-year contract beginning in 2012-2013 with Ohio State goalie Cal Heeter. 

GDT - Game #67:  Red Wings at Flyers (7:00)

After going 2-3-1 in their past six games, DET (43-20-3) are now second in the Central Division.  Although even with STL at 89 points, the Blues own the tie-breaker, having one more regulation/overtime win.  The to-be-avoided-at-all-costs 4-5 matchup, today, would see DET opening the playoffs against NSH (2-7 match-up would be against PHX).  Things won’t be easy for the Wings...
