Another defenseman has apparently bit the dust. The Philadelphia Flyers have called up Erik Gustafsson, a move that was certainly in correlation to the injury top defenseman Kimmo Timonen sustained Friday night. Timonen was injured midway through the game and never came out for the third and final period with what GM Paul Holmgren described...
The Flyers may be just 6-7-1 in 2013, but that doesn't mean they aren't one of the top five franchises in the NHL over the past ten plus seasons.
The graphic above, shown on the NHL Network this morning, shows exactly where the Flyers stand among the great franchises in the league. Their 658 total regular season and playoff wins combined since the '97-'98 season is...
Finally, whether you want to admit it or not, you love Ilya Bryzgalov. Last season obviously was not Ilya's best, but the season he is putting together right now *knock on wood*, is giving fans an idea of what we are paying for.
During the lockout, beside missing hockey as a whole, I truly missed Ilya Bryzgalov. If it is Bryz's off ice interviews, or on ice play, their is...
In the wake of yet another disappointing performance and yet another loss, there is a lot of unrest both within the Philadelphia Flyers and throughout the team's fanbase.

Last night's 4-1 loss in Montreal dropped the Flyers to 6-9-1 on...

There is no time for the Philadelphia Flyers (6-8-1) to dwell on last night's collapse in Newark that saw the team blow a 3-1 lead and lose 5-3 in regulation. Tonight, the Flyers return to Canada for the fourth game of their six-game road trip. The opponent will be a Montreal Canadiens (8-4-1) club that has won its last two games and which had last night...
PREVIEW 6:30 AM EST
In the third game of their six-game road trip and the first match of another three-in-four, the Philadelphia Flyers (6-7-1) will take on a familiar nemesis. Dating back to the playoffs last spring and the first meeting of the lockout-shortened 2013 season, the New Jersey Devils (8-2-3) have won five games in a row against Philadelphia. Tonight's game from...
from Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer,
Forget about the captaincy weighing him down. Giroux's slump is more tied to the fact he has lost his two big wingers from last year - Scott Hartnell and the ageless Jaromir Jagr.
Hartnell has played only three games because of a broken left foot. Jagr, who got tired of the Flyers' putting him on hold as they waited...
