6 "other" guys to watch
1) Wayne Simmonds - strong on his feet, despite being -5 versus Pitt this season overall, he had 3 goals and 3 assists in 6 games. Look for this physical stalwart to score a big goal or two from in front. May be one of the last men standing, ha ha. Great pick-up by GM Paul Holmgren. Only 23-years-of-age, "Simmer" played every game and scored far-and-away a career hi...
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
LET THE PLAYOFFS BEGIN
Ilya Bryzgalov is known as much for the things he says during interviews as the saves he makes while in net. For that reason, we were not surprised by the response he gave on Monday when asked what the biggest threat is that the Flyers’ first-round opponents can bring. But the look Bryzgalov had on his face when he told reporters that he was afraid...
The Philadelphia Flyers have their sights set on a Stanley Cup championship this season, and to help themselves accomplish the feat, they're turning to Mac Miller for some motivational words. The Flyers have created playoff-themed shirts declaring that they want 16 "Knock Knocks," referring to the Miller song of that name they play after every win. The shirt also includes...

Philadelphia beat the Pens, 3-2, on December 8 at Wells Fargo Center. Daniel Briere, Wayne Simmonds and Scott Hartnell all scored to give the Flyers a commanding 3-0 lead midway through the second period.
James Neal netted a power-play goal at the 14:10 mark of period...
Danny Briere may be ready to go for Game 1 of the playoffs against the Pittsburgh Penguins. Defenseman Nicklas Grossmann also will return.
The health of some key members of the Philadelphia Flyers has been in question as the team approaches the playoffs. Today, the Flyers got a little bit of clarity in regards to a couple of their more important pieces.
Nicklas Grossmann, the Flyers...
The Philadelphia Flyers and the Pittsburgh Penguins renew their PA Turnpike Rivalry in the opening round of the 2012 NHL Playoffs. This is their 6th meeting in the playoffs with the Flyers having a 3-2 all-time series lead. The Penguins have won the last two meeting including their last meeting in 2009 on their way to their Stanley Cup Championship.
Rivalries are what make sports...
Ilya Bryzgalov has never been shy to go out on a limb and make some whacky comments infront of the media this year since coming to a bigger market in Philadelphia. While getting prepared to ...
One of the more underrated and sickening playoff defeats the Penguins have ever experienced was the 2000 series against the Flyers. If a Penguins fan is ever on the show "Intervention," they will be talking about how great their life was and then the producer will ask what was the catalyst to their downward spiral in life. The Penguin fan will take a deep breath...

If the season series is any type of foreshadowing, this first round matchup should not only the most intense, but the most exciting, action packed, drama filled series of maybe the entire 2012 NHL Playoffs. After sitting out much of the season, Sidney Crosby will lead his team against the cross-state rivals, the...
We've been here before, you know. There is going to be an absolute cacophony of voices in our heads and in our faces over the next week-plus, yelling and screaming and whining and kicking down the borders of consciousness. NBC Sports will turn the contrast up on those oranges and blacks and whites and golds, and get rolling into a festival of rhetoric. In a way, we almost like...
Last week, when I saw the YouTube video of Scott Hartnell making his then-famous now-forgotten - nothing personal, Scottie, that’s just the way things go these days - Hulk Hogan impersonation, I thought of a friend of mine who did the same thing 15 years ago.
Only, he wasn’t doing it in front of 15 000 people, or to a guy dressed up as Hulk Hogan. He did it in an ice cold...

Two of the Penguins 4 losses were to the Flyers, 1 of the Flyers losses came on the last game of the season against the Penguins. The Flyers won the series 4-2 outscoring the Penguins 22-18. The games...
