For 40 minutes, it looked like the Flyers were going to claim their first win of the season after falling to the Bruins and Devils in back-to-back games on Wednesday and Thursday.

Philadelphia Flyers once again facing slow start, early trouble

There are really two extremes when it comes to schools of thought regarding early season play. Some will look at the early results and determine that it doesn’t actually say much about where a team’s going, whereas others will make sweeping declarations about a team’s fate after just a few games. In the case of the Philadelphia Flyers, it’s hard not to fall victim to the...

Morning After: Defense faces tough challenge without Coburn

There are times where Braydon Coburn looks totally out of place in the Flyers defensive system. I even criticized his positioning on the Bruins first goal on Wednesday night. But it is games like the Flyers home opener on Thursday, a 6-4 loss to the Devils, where his absence proves costly. Less of Coburn means more of Luke Schenn and Michael Del Zotto, a pairing that is bound to...

Morning After: First game jitters hurt Flyers

The Flyers season opener fully portrayed the dangers of playing on your heels. A late penalty kept the tilted ice in the Boston Bruins favor. But it was a broken play, and a broken stick, that did the Flyers in. Steve Mason attempted to adjust to Adam McQuaid's shot as it fluttered off the broken stick, but left a rebound right in the crease for Chris Kelly, who scored the game...

This Week in Flyers' History: Week Ending March 1st

February 24, 2007 Many fans of the Orange and Black would like to forget the 2006-2007 campaign, a season which saw the Flyers win just 22 games. After a 1-5-1 start, the firing of Coach Ken Hitchcock, and the resignation of Hall of Famer Bobby Clarke as General Manager, the team needed a new direction. Paul Holmgren was inserted as the interim GM and John Stevens took over behind...

Flyers Trade Targets: Under-the-Radar Defensemen

The Flyers biggest need is painfully obvious: mobility at the blue line.  While Braydon Coburn and Erik Gustafsson are good skaters, the rest of the Flyers defense corps consists of guys who are older (Timonen), slower (Schenn, Meszaros, Grossmann), or both old and slow (Hal Gill).  In a perfect world, the Flyers would be able […]The post Flyers Trade Targets: Under-the-Radar...

Flyperbole: Rumor Time with Wayne Simmonds, Luke Schenn, Braydon Coburn

In the wake of the Max Talbot for Steve Downie trade, the rumor mill for the Flyers was working overtime. The team was losing and everyone expected Paul Holmgren to blow it all up.

One statistic several people are referencing as to why they think the Philadelphia Flyers’ offense will rebound is shooting percentage.
