Flyers’ 2017-18 Schedule Breakdown

All NHL schedules are not created equal. Sure, every team must face each other at least twice per season. You can’t hide from the Anaheim Ducks all year just because you’re based in Buffalo. The NHL is not college football. But success over the course of an 82-game season can be dictated just as much by timing as it can be by performance. Timing plays an important role for a...

Caja Rural the 'perfect' team for Schultz's Vuelta a Espana debut

A mid-season bout of tonsillitis proved to be a blessing in disguise for Nick Schultz. The Australian was struck down with the illness in June, forcing a change in his race programme that will see the first-year Caja Rural-Seguros RGA rider line out in Nimes for the Vuelta a Espana this coming Saturday. "I was going to ride the Route du Sud and that was going to shut down the first...

Prep football: Dixie Flyers preview

Dixie reached the Class 3AA state semifinals last year despite being without its standout quarterback for the postseason. Jacob Barben is back, and so is his favorite target, Hobbs Nyberg. That means the Flyers are in fantastic shape. Sure, there are holes to fill, but having the Barben-to-Nyberg connection back means bad news for the opposition. “It’s just about calling the...

Ivan Provorov Is Becoming Flyers #1 Defenseman

It was practically impossible for Ivan Provorov to make a splash during the 2016-17 season. The likes of Auston Matthews, Patrik Laine, Zach Werenski, Matthew Tkachuk and Mitch Marner stole the show throughout the season. This overshadowed a lot of the work done in all three zones by Provorov and his route to becoming a number one defenseman in the NHL. Junior Career Drafted seventh...

Flyers Fantasy Outlook

Fantasy hockey is another side of the sport that most of us love. Whether it’s competing in a league with your friends or with strangers for fun, it’s an exciting branch to explore. It also shines a light on players that aren’t as valued by other fans. The basic categories for fantasy hockey are typically goals, assists, power-play and penalty-kill points, plus/minus and penalty...

With Sights Set on NHL, Sanheim, Myers Face Stiff Competition

(Kevin Durso/Sports Talk Philly) By Kevin Durso, Sports Talk Philly editor  From the day the Flyers separated after the 2016-17 season, Ron Hextall made it clear. Spots on the blue line were going to be up for grabs. The safe assumption was to look to Sam Morin and Robert Hagg as the potential replacements.

Flyers Look to Climb Back into Division Elite

(Kate Frese/Sports Talk Philly) By Matt Mastrogiovanni, Sports Talk Philly staff writer  It's been a roller coaster ride in the standings for the Flyers in recent years. Last season, they rose to the top of the division and even close to the top of the NHL riding the wave of their 10-game winning streak. However, that all came crashing down pretty quickly. From competing for...

Flyers Goalie Pipeline, Led by Carter Hart, Provides Bright Future in Crease

(Kevin Durso/Sports Talk Philly) By Jeff Quake, Sports Talk Philly staff writer  Throughout the past few decades, the Flyers faithful have witnessed the frustration of their beloved Orange and Black goalie tandem.

The Philadelphia Flyers have a quiet but successful free agency

While it was known going into free agency that the Philadelphia Flyers wouldn’t be big spenders, Ron Hextall was still able to maximize the little cap space available wisely. When division rivals add superstars like the New York Rangers did with Kevin Shattenkirk, New York Islanders with Jordan Eberle, and the Columbus Blue Jackets with Artemi Panarin, it’s hard to stay put and...

The Philadelphia Flyers reloaded their forward prospects

At the NHL draft, the Philadelphia Flyers seemingly had a clear strategy: draft as many young forwards with as much potential as possible. Already loaded on defense with players that can make an impact as soon as next season at the NHL level, the Flyers had a clear dearth of forwards in their prospect pool. Apart from Oscar Lindblom who the Flyers struck gold on in the fifth round...
