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...

After demotion, Lecavalier sparks Flyers

Vincent Lecavalier seemed upset when he found himself paired up with Zac Rinaldo and Adam Hall on the fourth line during Philadelphia’s Friday morning skate, but the move worked in last night’s 4-2 victory over Toronto. Flyers coach Craig Berube was very pleased with Lecavalier’s line and the 33-year-old forward, who also shifted from the wing to center, admitted that he felt...

Bombshell: Lecavalier demoted to Flyers' 4th line

In a stunning move, Flyers coach Craig Berube demoted Vinny Lecavalier to the fourth line. Lecavalier had been playing on the second line at left wing, but will be back at his natural position _ center _ for Friday's game against visiting Toronto. "It wasn't working where it was, so I put him back in the middle, and it's where we're going to start right now...

Lecavalier Moved Back To Center, But On The 4th Line

from Dave Isaac of the Courier-Post, Vinny Lecavalier was one of the first players to step out on the ice for morning skate Friday. The 33-year-old veteran of 14 seasons will find himself in a new spot when the puck drops between the Flyers and Toronto Maple Leafs: fourth line center. Ever since he returned from a back injury Dec. 21, Lecavalier had been playing left wing...

Flyers make statement with OT victory

For a while there, it was a trick the Flyers nearly forgot they had in their back pocket. Down a pair of goals in the third period to the team that’s nipping at their heels in the standings could have been a problem. Instead, the Flyers stopped taking penalties, scored on a power play and finished the Washington Capitals off 5-4 in overtime for their 11th third-period comeback...

Michael Raffl, The Sparkplug

Team finds versatility in new line with Raffl

Although he’s played nothing but wing for the Flyers and that’s the position they recruited him to play, Michael Raffl is making the move back to center. That’s right, he actually began his career in the middle of the ice and when the Flyers faced off against the Anaheim Ducks Thursday, that’s where he started. “You get to have the puck a little bit more,” the 25-year...

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...
