Fate swung at the Capitals again. This time, they punched back.

PHILADELPHIA — So this was what heartbreak would look like in 2016: a Capitals star sitting helpless in the penalty box, booked on a case of mistaken identity. The scriptwriters had done it again, dreaming up  a four-minute double-minor on Nicklas Backstrom, who happened to be nearby when one of Ryan White’s teammates accidentally high-sticked him. The Flyers […]

Michael Neuvirth to Start in Goal for Game 4

In a last ditch attempt to change up something and at least not get swept, Dave Hakstol has shuffled his lineup around for tonight’s Game 4. The biggest change is in net, where Michael Neuvirth will start in goal over the beleaguered Steve Mason in an attempt to make one last splash. At this point, changing the goalie is the equivalent to spitting in a wishing well. The series...

Red Wings: Ryan White is probably getting suspended for this hit on Jurco

Flyers forward Ryan White was given a match penalty for this blindside hit on Red Wings forward Tomas Jurco in the first period of tonight’s game from the Joe. Jurco was initially slow to get up but eventually got to his feet and remained in the game while White was given an early show and probably a pending date with the NHL’s Department of Player Safety.

Postgame Perspective: Better effort still leaves Flyers looking for 'better' fate

Take this in: the Flyers had to make a goalie change just 1:14 into the second, after Steve Mason allowed the Islanders third goal on 10 shots. The Flyers went on to outshoot the Islanders, 17-5, in the second and 46-26 for the game.  So the Islanders won in a shootout. Sounds familiar, right? "We deserved better tonight," head coach Dave Hakstol said, "but that's the way the...

Flyers rally back, but Islanders claim win in shootout

Another long range shot made its way past Steve Mason. Just like on Saturday, the Flyers found themselves on the wrong end of a 3-1 score.  Dave Hakstol made the change in goal and the Flyers were a completely different team. The frenetic pace of the second period nearly had the Flyers completely erase the deficit in a matter of 15 minutes.  The Flyers eventually erased the...

First-line Thoughts: Will Hakstol keep Giroux and Voracek separated?

Ryan White skated off the ice during a game against the Carolina Hurricanes with the result of an upper-body injury predicted to last two-to-four weeks. In an attempt to adjust, head coach Dave Hakstol placed Jake Voracek on the third line. With his absence of the first line, Brayden Schenn and Michael Raffl have stepped up to create a strong first line. Both players know their...

Hurricanes-Flyers Preview

Piling up as many injuries as they are points, the Philadelphia Flyers have had trouble scoring since beating Carolina for their only victory in the last two weeks.

Philadelphia (6-9-5) has dropped 11 of 13, but...
