Is an emphasis on grit hurting the Montreal Canadiens?

The Montreal Canadiens added some toughness over the summer when they signed George Parros and Douglas Murray. With these two men in the mix, the Canadiens believed they had bulked up enough to protect their skilled players and combat some of the more burly lineups in the Eastern Conference.  Has this new emphasis on grit caused more harm than good? Max Pacioretty is concerned...

Flyers drop first road game, lose 4-1 in Montreal

There weren’t many positives for the Philadelphia Flyers to take away from their 4-1 loss to the Montreal Canadiens tonight, as the offense and power play failed to show up for a second straight game. Carey Price denied 22 shots from Philly this evening for the Canadiens’ first win of the season, as Vincent Lecavalier was the only Flyer to find the back of the cage. Brendan...

Flyers try to avoid repeat against Hurricanes

Brian Gionta scores the first goal in the Flyers 4-1 loss to the Canadiens on Saturday. The Flyers started the 2013 lockout-shortened season 0-3-0, their worst start to a season in 17 years. Through two games, the Flyers have scored two total goals while allowing seven to start at 0-2-0. If the Flyers want to avoid a repeat of last season, they need a point in Carolina, preferably...

Thoughts after three

Impressive Flyers so far: Vincent Lecavalier Brayden Schenn Mark Streit Zac Rinaldo Steve Mason (minus one goal) I keep thinking to myself things like, “Why is Nicklas Grossmann carrying the puck in the offensive zone?”, “Why is Grossmann shooting the puck?”, “Why is Grossmann still on the ice?” That’s not a criticism of Grossmann so much as it is an acknowledgment...

Canadiens’ Josh Gorges Shatters Glass Inside Penalty Box, Narrowly Misses Nailing Sean Couturier in Face (Video)

Hockey players have to been aware of their surroundings at all points, even when they’re coming out of the penalty box. Flyers center Sean Couturier almost learned that the hard way on Saturday night. Couturier was coming back onto the ice after serving a two-minute minor when the puck went flying by his head into the penalty box. Montreal Canadiens defenseman Josh Gorges had...

Final Observations: Carolina Hurricanes 2, Philadelphia Flyers 1

Photo by Grant Halverson/Getty Images O’Connor’s Observations After a poor performance on Saturday night against the Canadiens, the Flyers looked even worse on Sunday against the Hurricanes. It all stems from Philadelphia’s struggles to cleanly exit their own zone. The longer it takes them to exit their own end, the easier it is for the opponent to wear the Flyers’ skaters...
