The Curious Case of Carlo Colaiacovo

After looking at who I think should be a choice for a healthy scratch on Saturday, I wanted to look at his possible replacement.  The Flyers defense has been a rotating door this season, both on and off the ice. Four different defensemen have been healthy scratches in recent games: Michael Del Zotto, Luke Schenn, Andrew MacDonald and the subject of this piece, Carlo Colaicovo...

Flyers Fall in Shootout After Last-Second Heroics

  #457221976 / They earned a point, but the shootout foiled them again as the Flyers fell to the Ducks 5-4 in Anaheim.

Durso: It's always frustrating in Tankadelphia

Last week, Craig Berube threatened benchings. On Saturday, they began. First, it was Andrew MacDonald and Pierre-Edouard Bellemare who took a seat on Saturday.

Morning After: Right response, wrong finish for Flyers

The Flyers season is starting to become a broken record. The effort was there but the goals weren't. "We played well enough to win, but you have to score." You've probably heard this before. The result was the same for the Flyers as they fired 39 shots on Darcy Kuemper on Thursday night to score just two goals. In the end, a late turnover by Andrew MacDonald led to the game...

Tuesday Tactical Tidings: Michael Del Zotto Flying Under the Radar

When the Philadelphia Flyers signed Michael Del Zotto in August after the tragic injury to Kimmo Timonen, many expected him to play minimal minutes in a 3rd pairing role. However, due to injuries to Braydon Coburn, Andrew MacDonald and now Luke Schenn, Del Zotto has been forced to play more minutes and play against tougher competition. Fortunately, he has thrived in his newfound...

Lavoie: Talks with Stralman not going well

Per Renaud Lavoie, talks between the Rangers and UFA defenseman Anton Stralman are not going as planned. The Rangers are allotting $4 million to Stralman, but it definitely seems that Stralman will get north of $4.5 million, probably closer to the $5 million that Andrew MacDonald got from Philadelphia.

He's been doing it for years, only to apparently express some kind of remorse the next day. At some point, you have to think that wears guys a little thin. ...
