Found April 27, 2013 on HockeyBuzz:
Make sure to follow Travis on Twitter! -- The Ottawa Senators couldn't take care of business on home-ice, losing to an undermanned Philadelphia Flyers team courtesy a late Jakub Voracek goal. Ottawa drilled Philadelphia in the shot department, particularly at even-strength. But, as has been the case all season long, the Senators skaters couldn't find an answer for the opposition's goaltender....

Flyers keep Laviolette as coach

The Philadelphia Flyers have failed to win a Stanley Cup since 1975. But they're at least in the hunt. Not this year. Not after the Flyers failed to make the playoffs for the first time since 2007 and only the second time since 1995. Any offseason shakeups needed to mold the Flyers back into a contender won't include changing the coach. Peter Laviolette has another chance...

Spezza Not Close To A Return

from Ian Mendes of Sportsnet, Ottawa Senators’ players have been making miraculous recoveries from injuries lately, but it doesn’t sound like Jason Spezza will join that list — at least any time soon. The star centre, who has been sidelined since undergoing back surgery on February 1, isn’t expected to return for the start of the playoffs next week. “I think...

Flyers 2, Senators 1

Jakub Voracek scored the winner, Steve Mason made 43 saves and the Philadelphia Flyers closed out the season with a 2-1 win over the Ottawa Senators on Saturday night. Jason Akeson also scored for the Flyers, who failed to advance to the postseason for just the ninth time in franchise history. Kyle Turris scored for the Senators and Craig Anderson stopped 23 shots. The loss leaves...

Knuble Should Play in Final Game of Flyers Season Because I Said So

Categories: BREAKING NEWS Flyers News NHLTags: Mike KnubleI don’t know how other coaches handle the media, but I’ve sat in enough conferences with Philadelphia Flyers head coach Peter Laviolette to know that you don’t ask him questions about the line-up. You especially don’t ask him about goaltenders. After the second game of the 2011 Stanley Cup quarterfinals against...

TiqIQ Ticket Preview: Flyers @ Senators

By Eli Epstein, TiqIQ The swan song is on for the Philadelphia Flyers’ 2012-2013 season, and what a disappointing campaign it was. In Philadelphia, expectations were high, as always. Nothing clicked for the Flyers this season, however. Pricey goalie Ilya Bryzgalov was there one night, and veritably absent the next. Claude Giroux was high-flying, and Jakub Voracek exceeded expectations...

Senators beat Bruins to get 7 seed

Jean-Gabriel Pageau scored the tiebreaking goal with 3:34 to play and the Ottawa Senators beat Boston 4-2 on Sunday night in the NHL's rescheduled regular-season finale.

Travis Yost: Gameday: Ottawa Hosts Philadelphia on HNIC

Make sure to follow Travis on Twitter! -- The Ottawa Senators know they're headed to the post-season after punching their playoff ticket Tuesday in Washington. Finding out their first-round opponent could take a couple of more days. Ottawa's road victory against the white-hot Washington Capitals ensured that the ninth-place Winnipeg Jets would be unable to catch them...

Milan Lucic and Chris Neil Fight

This is my definition of a heavy weight fight between Boston Bruins forward Milan Lucic and Ottawa Senators forward Chris Neil. After not being in a fight for 26 games, Lucic has now been in a fight in two out of his last three games. With the fight tonight, Lucic has now accumulated five fighting majors for the season. That is also the sixth fighting major of the year for the...

Flyers-Senators Preview

The Ottawa Senators could finish as high as fifth in the Eastern Conference or as low as eighth, but they're just happy being in the playoffs. Having reigning Norris Trophy winner Erik Karlsson back is nice, too. Ottawa will try to avoid a season-high third straight home loss Saturday night against a Philadelphia Flyers team that's closing out a non-playoff season on a...

Flyers Win Season Finale

(Photo by Andre Ringuette/NHLI via Getty Images) Well Flyers fans, the pain is over. The pain of watching the 2013 Philadelphia Flyers is over…for now. The Flyers season came to an end on Saturday night after defeating the Ottawa Senators, 2-1. The Flyers took the lead early on as Jason Akeson scored his first NHL [...]

Tim Panaccio: Who To Amnesty?

The big discussion these days on the Flyers is who to amnesty this summer. Do you go with Ilya Bryzgalov or Danny Briere? I am surprised at just how many tweets and emails I get that show pretty much a 50/50 split on this. Everything I see and hear so far tells me that Briere will be the one. His rather candid interview earlier seems to support that, as well. His cap hit...

Travis Yost: Gameday: All Eyes on Ottawa and Boston

Make sure to follow Travis on Twitter! -- There's something amusing six Eastern Conference playoff clubs having to sit through the final game of the NHL regular season between the Ottawa Senators and Boston Bruins. Ottawa's regulation loss in Philadelphia, combined with Boston's extra-time loss in Washington, has created a scenario in which three of the four Eastern...

Senators-Bruins Preview

The final regular-season game will be a very important one for the Ottawa Senators and Boston Bruins. While the Bruins will be focused on winning the Northeast Division title Sunday night, the visiting Senators have an opportunity to move up a spot and avoid high-powered Pittsburgh in the first round. The regular season was originally scheduled to end Saturday, but this game was...

Penguins Fans: Do You Feel Sorry for the Flyers?

I set my DVR to record “The Biggest Loser” and it keeps recording Philadelphia Flyers games! But seriously… As representatives of Pittsburgh Penguins nation, do you feel sorry for the Philadelphia Flyers abysmal season? They struggled with injuries, and poor play.
