Flyers shut out for 2nd-consecutive game, fall 4-0 to Ottawa Senators

While the Flyers did take the ice Saturday in Kanata, Ont. for a matchup with the Ottawa Senators, evidently, they did not show up. Showing up would imply that actual hockey was played, and what the Flyers churned out was not NHL-caliber hockey. It's an effort that resembles what a juniors team would look like if they took the ice against an NHL squad. While the Flyers (6-9-5) registered...

Ottawa Senators Season Recap: A Season to Remember

View image | gettyimages.com This has been one crazy season for the Ottawa Senators, but it sure was a very entertaining one. They started by firing their coach Paul MacLean on December 8th, 2014. MacLean has made some questionable moves before he got fired such as changes the lines after every game or two. I don’t understand why he was doing that, but to me, it just says he...
