Giroux’s leadership should not be questioned

As the Flyers playoff hopes fade away and the end of another season closes in, the time has come to look for the reasons and scapegoats responsible for another long offseason. There will be a lot of changes made to the Flyers in the coming months. A coaching change is likely on the way.

Philadelphia Flyers: Reviewing loss to Carolina Hurricanes

In the midst of a playoff push, the Philadelphia Flyers left Carolina without points. Claude Giroux and the Flyers were not on top of their game and were bullied by the Canes.

Their only goal of the game came...

Flyers top line needs to make triumphant return

Inspired play keeping Flyers in playoff picture

If you remember my column from last week, then you remember the task I said was at hand for the Flyers - in the next three games, all against current playoff teams, the Flyers needed two wins. They did not succeed in this test, winning only the must-win game on Sunday in regulation. But the Flyers did add the additional two points for a second win. In both cases, the Flyers had...
