Flyers’ R.J. Umberger on poor season: ‘I feel like I’ve let Hextall down’ (Puck Daddy)

The Philadelphia Flyers still have two more years left on R.J. Umberger’s contract, with $9 million coming to him. That’s going to turn into a Vincent Lecavalier albatross situation if the forward doesn’t turn his fortunes around. Umberger will be a healthy scratch Tuesday night when the Flyers host the Dallas Stars. Lecavalier will take his place in the lineup after sitting...

Flyers rally for 3 in 3rd, beat Blues

The numbers looked bleak as the third period began. The St. Louis Blues had lost just three times when leading after two periods. The Flyers had just two wins when trailing after 40 minutes. With their playoff hopes on life support, points are crucial in every game. The Flyers made the third period count, scoring three goals to down the Blues, 3-1, on Thursday night at Wells Fargo...

Postgame Perspective: 2nd-period struggles continue for Flyers

  View image | gettyimages.com When the Flyers lost to Nashville on Saturday night, it was difficult to tell if the Flyers were experiencing the pitfalls of a break or just struggling to get going against a tough defensive team. The Arizona Coyotes entered Monday's game allowing 111 goals this season, fourth-most in the NHL. This was not a feared defense. And the Flyers...

Now Being Served in the Press Box: Hot Dog Sandwiches and RJ Umbergers?

The duo of Sean Couturier and Matt Read broke out on Thursday night and combined on the two early goals to sink the Devils. This is a pair that has been getting a lot of unwarranted criticism of their offensive production this year. The cause of their limited production is a combination of zone starts, quality of competition, and RJ Umberger. Couturier and Read have played...

Durso: Berube needs to give Flyers line change

It's time for a line change for the Flyers.  Game after game, it was one line truly powering the Flyers offense. When they were snuffed out by the New York Islanders on Monday, Craig Berube finally noticed what was obvious for several games. The Flyers have a lot of players who can score. But they are not a deep team offensively. The top line continues to succeed. The rest...

Durso: With Giroux out, time for other Flyers to wake up

For a good portion of Tuesday, the status of captain Claude Giroux was up in the air. Craig Berube didn't know anything. R.J. Umberger played time on the top line while hoping Giroux was good enough to play. Finally, after hours of speculation, Ron Hextall revealed the mildly bad news.

Simon Despres blows up Sean Couturier, Umberger vs Despres fight

Tonight, I was watching the Flyers and Penguins game. Check out this clean, hard hit.In my opinion, this is a thing of beauty. Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Simon Despres absolutely blows up Sean Couturier with a shoulder-to-shoulder hit. The video from this angle doesn't do a good job of showing it. Of course you have the obligitory fight between R.J. Umberger and Despres.
