Found April 20, 2013 on HockeyBuzz:
Steve Mason started tonight in Carolina. We were expecting that given the Canes have an aggressive forecheck and coach Peter Laviolette wanted to help his undermanned defense with someone who could perhaps play the puck more often to assist the Flyer D on the breakout. Now that the Flyers are officially eliminated from the playoffs, I would like to see Mason play these final four games to ge...

Flyers Miss Playoffs

In a shortened season there is a greater uncertainty in the final standings than normal.  A run of good or bad luck will have a bigger impact in the standings than it does in an 82 game season.  Perhaps the team that will miss the playoffs that is the biggest change from recent results is the Philadelphia Flyers.  The Flyers have made the playoffs each of the last five years and...

Flyers @ Hurricanes : Preview 4/20/2013

A day after being formally eliminated from playoff consideration, the Flyers head to Carolina to face the Hurricanes, four games away from the end of a disappointing season.

Flyers-Hurricanes Preview

The Philadelphia Flyers are in the rare position of being relegated to just playing out the string as they visit the free-falling Carolina Hurricanes on Saturday night.

Bill Meltzer: Meltzer's Musings:Typical Loss to NJ, Young D, HB Reader at Maccabiah

Breakdown, breakaway, Bryz breaks his stick. That's the Cliff's Notes synopsis of a broken 2013 season for the Philadelphia Flyers. That has been especially true in four of the five games the Flyers have played against the New Jersey Devils this year. Actually, it goes back to the latter part of last season as well. Regardless of the personnel that is playing or missing...

Bill Meltzer: Meltzer's Musings: The Raleigh Romp, Fedotenko, Hall, Sunday Quick Hits

Flyers-Hurricanes Wrapup Last night in Raleigh, the Philadelphia Flyers beat up on a Carolina Hurricanes team that must really want a guaranteed top-four pick in the NHL Draft and the third-highest odds of winning the Draft lottery a week from tomorrow.
