The hit that Philadelphia Flyers forward Wayne Simmonds delivered to Tyler Ennis wasn’t a dirty or malicious one, even though it was from behind. The Buffalo Sabres forward was merely trying to turn and protect the puck, and he turned as Simmonds was hitting him. It was a bang-bang play and Simmonds didn’t have time to react. The referees were not going to call a penalty...

When general manager Paul Holmgren sent backup goalie Sergei Bobrovsky to Columbus for three draft picks last June, not many eyebrows were raised. Bobrovsky had seen little time behind Ilya Bryzgalov.
But with the strike-shortened season more than halfway over, Bobrovsky has emerged as the NHL’s hottest goaltender.
Claude Giroux scored his eighth goal of the season just 17 seconds into the second period of the Flyers' 3-2 win over the Buffalo Sabres.
It was the easiest of opponents the Flyers would face this week, but they still didn't make it look easy.
Despite dominating much of the early play, the Flyers had to constantly fight off the Sabres. Buffalo proved to be a tough test...
It was a week that had Flyers fans pumped up and ready to go. The boys had finally gotten back to .500, and were set to have a week full of rivalries, matching up against the Rangers, Penguins, and Bruins all in one week. Unfortunately, this week that Philly looked so forward to became a disaster, and quick. After a 4-2 loss to New York at MSG, the Flyers took a commanding 4-1 lead...
Some of you may have planned on watching the Walking Dead after the Flyers brutal 3-0 loss on Saturday. The Flyers were losers of three straight games, registering a loss against the Rangers, Penguins and Bruins. On Sunday night, the orange and black faced off against the Buffalo Sabres.
Buffalo with a 9-13-3 record, is a mere 3-5-2 in their last ten games. The Flyers are coming...
The Philadelphia Flyers beat the Buffalo Sabres 3-2 last night, bring their season record to 12-14-1 and their record in the month of March to 2-3-0. With the team starved for wins and points -- and with the Flyers having played more games than any other club in the NHL -- they will gladly take the two points from last night.
However, the Flyers did little last night to inspire...
NHLTags: Peter LavioletteThe term “statement week” was thrown around after the Philadelphia Flyers won their second game in a row against the Ottawa Senators.
Facing top Eastern Conference opponents in the New York Rangers, Pittsburgh Penguins and Boston Bruins, the Flyers could build off their recent success and gain some much needed...
For the first time this season the Bruins are going up against the Philadelphia Flyers. The Bruins and Flyers have had bad blood in the playoffs more than the regular season. In 2010 the Flyers came back from a 0-3 series defecit to beat the Bruins. The next year during the 2011 cup run the Bruins swept the Flyers in 4.
So far this season the Flyers are 11-13-1 and tied for...
(photo by Jared Wickerham/Getty Images) One of the most important weeks of the season for the Philadelphia Flyers has not gone too well. After losing in New York to the Rangers on Tuesday and blowing a lead at home against the Penguins on Thursday, the Flyers headed to Boston to take on the Bruins. Both [...]
With 27 games played to date, the Philadelphia Flyers have played more games this season than any other team in the NHL. That is bad news when the team is already mired in 11th place in the Eastern Conference and is three points behind the eighth-ranked New York Rangers (who have played 24 games).
When a team that entered the season expecting to be playoff contenders has already...
The Flyers held on for a 3-2 win over the Buffalo Sabres as Simon Gagne, Max Talbot, and Claude Giroux netted goals for Philadelphia. Tonight was a game the Flyers needed to win after falling flat in their three most important games of the season. Losses to the Rangers, Penguins, and Bruins had Philly reeling [...]
The Sabres were without Tyler Ennis and Ryan Miller, are one of the worst teams in the league, and don’t play defense, so this game was supposed to be a cakewalk. It wasn’t, and while the Sabres were lucky to get out of the first ten minutes scoreless, they outplayed the Rangers in the second, forcing a lot of penalties. The Rangers played fairly well, but had some sloppy stretches...
