Time for: Patience
Why: The Flyers were getting perilously close to panic mode, but they staved it off by going 3-0-1 in their last four games, including a 4-3 overtime win against the Carolina Hurricanes on Saturday, when they blew a third-period lead but got a goal from Danny Briere in overtime.
"I would use the term urgent, not panic," NBC Sports Network analyst Keith Jones told NHL.com. "It's more controlled, but definitely [they're] trying to address any of the weaknesses that have shown themselves."...

Time for: Panic
Why: The champs are in a rut and don't seem to be able to find their way out. They are struggling to score and aren't playing well enough defensively to overcome it....

The injury bug has not been kind to the Philadelphia Flyers in this lockout shortened season, and goalies have been no exception. Flyers GM Paul Holmgren has announced to the media that backup goaltender Michael Leighton will be out 7-10 days with what the team has described as an “upper body injury”...
After a dreadful 0-3 start, the Philadelphia Flyers might be showing some life at the quarter mark of the shortened NHL season. With seven points in a four-game home stand, could the team gradually be getting it together? If so, the timing could not be better. The top teams in the East are starting to pull away, all the teams are getting into the swing of things after the quick start following...
NHLTags: Harry ZolnierczykSean CouturierOne omission from the Flyers-Maple Leafs game recap is that Sean Couturier was a late scratch for the game. He participated in face-off drills in the morning practice, but was sent back to Philadelphia as the day continued to cope with a bout of the flu.
In his absence, Tom Sestito returned to the...
from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,
The Philadelphia Flyers begin a season-long, six-game road trip Monday night, a moment in their season that will answer questions about a club that has sent mixed messages about its status in the Eastern Conference.
Are they indeed still the contenders some people believe they are? Or a team in transition that needs a bit more growth of its...

During the month of January, Brayden Schenn lost his spot on the Philadelphia Flyers’ top line, served a one-game suspension, and failed to score a single goal.
February has proven far more positive for the young forward.
Rebounding from his disappointing start, Schenn has quickly become Philadelphia’s...
Following a slow start, the Philadelphia Flyers got a much-needed boost from a successful homestand. Their next challenge is keeping that momentum going on their longest road trip of the season.
In the opener of a six-game trek, the Flyers will try to add to the streaking Toronto Maple Leafs' home woes and continue their dominance in the series Monday night.
The Flyers needed a blue collar type effort tonight at MTS Centre in Winnipeg after a dreadful performance last night against the Maple Leafs. They got it. One of the keys was a fast start… It kinda sorta went that […]
Hello all FLYERS fans out there please don't panic.... Yet. The 5-6-1 Philadelphia Flyers are starting meld together. Last season it took the Jagr-Giroux-Hartnell Line nine or so games to finally create one of the best front lines in the NHL in production. The Fly guys still need another offensive presence to replace Hartnell (Out with a broken foot). Right now teams across the...
PREVIEW 7:00 AM EST
Looking to get a grueling six-game road trip off to a positive start, the Philadelphia Flyers (5-6-1) head to Canada for three of their four games. It all starts tonight, as they clash with the Toronto Maple Leafs (7-5-0). The game starts at 7 p.m. EST and will be televised locally on Comcast Sportsnet Philadelphia.
This is the first of three meetings between...
Let's face it, the Hurricanes do not have a history of playing well against the Flyers, and this goes back to when the franchise was relocated to Raleigh. Since 1997, the Hurricanes have won only 30 of their 115 games against the Flyers and have earned points in a little over 36% of those games. Given that bit of information, some might be thankful that the Canes were able to...
The single greatest aspect of the Philadelphia Flyers is the “win now” attitude that Ed Snider has bred into the franchise.We, as fans, have always felt the Flyers would do everything in their power to ice the best team possible […]
