Flyers Look To Begin Playoff Push

For those of you who are about to start watching hockey now that the Eagles season has ended here is what you missed so far.  The team got off to a slow start and is near the bottom of the league in the standings, but is only 8 points out of a playoff spot.  That is not impossible but they have work to do. If the Flyers are going to make the playoffs they are going to have to improve...

Tuesday Tactical Tidings: Analyzing the Struggling Penalty Kill

Special teams play can win or lose hockey games. There is no doubt that this was the case for the Philadelphia Flyers over the weekend in back-to-back losses at home against Columbus and then in Montreal the next night. Over those two games, the Flyers had been shorthanded 7 times and only successfully killed off one penalty. That’s right, Columbus (3 for 4) and Montreal (3 for...

Game 3 Preview: New York Rangers @ Philadelphia Flyers

Photo by Amy Irvin/38 Photography After coming away with an improbable split at Madison Square Garden this weekend, the Philadelphia Flyers head back home to host the New York Rangers in Game 3 of their opening round series tonight. Head coach Craig Berube will turn to Ray Emery again, but has decided to mix up his lines a bit. Will it help the Flyers win Game 3, or will the Orange...

Vincent Lecavalier's Resurgence and the New-Look 4th Line

There's really no denying that Vinny Lecavalier has been a disappointment since coming over from Tampa Bay this offeseason with a 5-year, $22.5M contract in hand. His play at even-strength was horrendous (here's a good breakdown of how bad things were from late February), and the only thing saving his production was his power-play scoring on the 2nd unit. Before the March 28th game...

Michael Raffl, The Sparkplug

    (picture via  The play of Michael Raffl has been a surprising revelation for most Flyers fans so far this season. Entering the year as an unproven undrafted free agent who played in the second level of Swedish pro hockey last year, not much was expected from him. The Flyers, however, saw things differently than the fan base and gave him Simon Gagne’s #12...

Islanders Return Comeback Favor Against Flyers

  Perhaps we were a bit wrong about the Flyers needing to establish a solid lead into the third? Maybe the comeback trend is the way to go for this club as it showed once again that it more than likely has a tendency to lose with a lead, than they will without one going into the final period of games. Who knew. The game definitely featured some solid plot lines, most the message...

A Thin Orange Line: Flyers Lines and What Should Change

      Scott Hartnell's lack of production could warrant a deduction in ice-time.   The Flyers record is truly telling of the squad’s consistent inconsistency. They’ve taken steps forward with wins where they’ve looked like a contender. The wins are usually followed shortly by steps back with losses, where they look like a pretender, ultimately looking like some sad...

Philadelphia Flyers: Early-season adversity may pay off in long-term
