Part One: What if Europe’s World Cup Roster was Chosen Today?

One of the strangest things to happen in international competition in recent years has to be the rumored European squad that will take part in the 2016 World Cup.

Postgame Perspective: Defense, power play set up Flyers rout of Lightning

When the Flyers dropped an afternoon game to the Bruins in pretty lifeless fashion, the strong start to a crucial homestand seemed null and void.
