Making Sense of the Flyers – Penguins Mess – Neal, Asham and Craig Situations Explained

The Flyers-Penguins series has been a series for the ages already. With so much happening, especially in yesterday’s slug fest at the Wells Fargo Center, it was kind of hard to keep everything straight. There were things that happened in that game that I have never seen before. Rules were enacted that I didn’t even know existed. I suppose that’s a testament to the freaky nature...

Neal's hearings will focus on his hit on rookie Sean Couturier during the third period - as well as his charging penalty against All-Star Claude Giroux later in...

Shanny has his work cut out for him part II

Arron Asham should be gone for the rest of the NHL playoffs for this cross check and then punch on Brayden Schenn. There was nothing wrong with Schenn's hit on Paul Martin, yet Asham attacks Schenn. Penguins forward James Neal should have been thrown out of the game for this questionable blindside on Sean Couturier. The refs really blew this call and their inaction...

Scoop Cooper: A puzzlement in Pittsburgh

The suddenly troubled Pittsburgh Penguins could well be short three forwards when they take to the ice on Wednesday for Game Four of their first round Stanley Cup playoff series with the Philadelphia Flyers which they are trailing three-games-to-none. Per a formal announcement by the NHL this morning, Arron Asham has been offered an in-person hearing Tuesday morning with the Department...

Tim Panaccio: Couturier Doesn't Look Like a Rookie

Jaromir Jagr was looking for a word to describe the performance from rookie center Sean Couturier in Game 2 against the Penguins. "Awesome?" he asked. Not only did Coots have a hat trick, but he shut down Evgeni Malkin, who had 2 assists and was -4. "Don’t forget, he had to play against probably the best player in the league, [Evgeni] Malkin,” Jagr...

Penguins Turn Playoffs Into Circus – Flyers Prevail and Lead 3-0

Today was one of those days in sports that made me proud to be a Philly fan.  More importantly, it made me VERY proud to be  a Flyers fan. That isn’t something you always hear from a Philly sports fan, but today it is a distinction worth mentioning.  The Pittsburgh Penguins came out today, looking more interested in hurting people and disgracing themselves than actually winning...

Julie Robenhymer: Day Seven: The Verdict Is…..

Brendan Shannahan, Director of Player Safety, announced four suspensions yesterday: Washington's Nicklas Backstrom got one game for a cross check on Rich Peverly. Pittsburgh's James Neal got one game for a hit on Claude Giroux.Pittsburgh's Arron Asham got four games for his cross check to Brayden Schenn and Chicago's Andrew Shaw got three games for his hit on Mike...

Flyers want to come out focused

There is no shortage of suggestions, from serious to silly, for how the Philadelphia Flyers can stop falling behind so early in games. Start the backup goalie for a period. Spot teams a 2-0 lead on the scoreboard and knock 10 minutes off the clock before the opening faceoff. Skate harder, come out more focused. No matter the ideas batted around the locker room, the song remains...

Evening Line

Sunday’s Pittsburgh-Philadelphia game featured at least three shocking scenes in which the player’s clear intent was to deliver a blow the head: Arron Asham’s hit on Brayden Schenn and James Neal’s cowardly back-to-back attacks on Sean Couturier and Claude Giroux. That’s bad enough. But it seems there’s been at least one vicious head shot in every frickin’ game since...
