As I reported earlier tonight on CSNPhilly.com, Nicklas Grossmann's new deal with the Flyers is 4 years for $14 million. His cap hit is $3.5 million. This is a terrific, manageable contract for the Flyers. They get a physical defenseman who is a crease-clearer and just 27-years of age at a time when Matt Carle will likely not be re-signed and Chris Pronger's career is probably over. I...

Flyers C Giroux expected to be ready for playoffs

With an essentially meaningless game to finish the regular season on Saturday, Philadelphia Flyers stud center Claude Giroux elected to take a breather. Although general manager Paul Holmgren said that his star was plagued by an upper-body injury - multiple reports deduced that it was actually a cold - Giroux sat out Saturday's 4-2 loss to the rival Pittsburgh Penguins. Giroux...

Flyers and D Nicklas Grossmann Agree to Extension

The Flyers made a very smart move today by signing defenseman Nicklas Grossmann to a multi-year contract extension. Grossmann was acquired ahead of the NHL trade deadline in February, and has done a tremendous job for the Flyers. Grossmann’s size (6’4″, 230 pounds) has given the Flyers a big presence in front of the net, something that had been sorely lacking since Chris Pronger’s...

Flyers making Sather look good

With the recent signing/extension of Nicklas Grossman the Philadelphia Flyers achieved three things. First of all they overpaid for a good but not elite defensive defenseman, secondly they gave themselves potential cap headaches this summer with the likes of Matt Carle, Jaromir Jagr and Jakub Voracek to re-sign (headaches could disappear depending on the Pronger situation) and finally...

Scott Hartnell wants your vote for EA's NHL 13 cover contest

[youtube]CpJON4isYPw[/youtube] Earlier this month we wrote about how EA's NHL 13 would feature a player on the cover selected by the fans in a March Madness style bracket. Some players have taken it to heart, waging war against their fellow competitors in an effort to get their mug on the cover for all fans to see. Scott Hartnell took things a step further and honestly, we...

Penguins, Flyers weighing how to play finale

There will be nothing on the line when the Pittsburgh Penguins and Philadelphia Flyers face each other in the regular-season finale on Saturday. The Penguins have already locked in the fourth seed in the Eastern Conference and will host the fifth-seeded Flyers when the playoffs begin next week. The game is meaningless in the standings but not in the minds of the players. The Flyers...

Flyers 2, Sabres 1

Matt Read and Marc-Andre Bourdon each scored goals to lead the Philadelphia Flyers to a 2-1 win Thursday night over Buffalo that eliminated the Sabres from a postseason spot. The Sabres needed to beat the Flyers and have Florida top Washington to keep their faint playoff hopes alive heading into their final game of the season. The Sabres failed to handle the Flyers and the Capitals...

Flyers snuff out Sabres' playoff hopes

Rookie Matt Read scored to snap a tie with just under 4 1/2 minutes remaining in the third period as the host Philadelphia Flyers knocked the Buffalo Sabres out of postseason contention with a 2-1 victory. The Sabres were officially eliminated moments after their loss to Philadelphia, as Washington finished off a 4-2 victory over Florida. Defenseman Marc-Andre Bourdon scored and...

GARTH: The Run Is Done

The miracle run to the eighth seed has come to a swift and abrupt halt. Two third period goals by the Flyers spelled doom and gloom for the Sabres. Two mistakes is all it took. On the first Flyers goal, MA Boudon's point shot appeared to dip as it eluded Miller. On the Matt Read GWG, Sekera and Regehr blew coverage. One Reggie pinched at the wrong time with the...

Flyers Down Sabres in "Irrelevant" Game 81 To Clinch 5th Seed, Pre-Game Awards Presented

Coming into Thursday night, the Flyers still had a legitimate chance at obtaining home ice advantage. All they had to do was take care of business against the Buffalo Sabres (who were fighting for their playoff lives themselves) and take down the Penguins on Saturday. The Flyers certainly did what they needed to do, downing the Buffalo Sabres 2-1 in dramatic fashion. Matt Read'...

Flyers-Penguins Preview

Flying sticks. Pointed fingers. Postgame putdowns. And that was just the coaches. What can the Pittsburgh Penguins and Philadelphia Flyers possibly do in Saturday's regular-season finale to top their last meeting, a 6-4 Flyers win at Consol Energy Center this week that served as a preview of what will be a contentious first-round playoff series? The smart answer might be nothing...

Wings Playoff Matchup Flowchart

Frustrating game last night, as Twig explained so eloquently, and this leaves the Wings in the passanger seat of who we're going to play.  I had an long essay written up of the many different sitauations which could happen, but then I saw this on Reddit and figured this is a million times easier.  So thanks to redditor, HockeyPancake and the subreddit DetroitRedWings for this...
