Flyers fall short in opener

The Philadelphia Flyers opened their season last night in Tampa Bay vs the Lightning. The flyers looked good from the beginning, and played very strong vs the team that was the best in the east last season.

New-look Flyers excite in season opener

  View image | The Flyers have not been very good in season-opening games the past few seasons. Some wondered if they would suffer the same fate to start the 2015-16 season when it was announced that they would be traveling to Tampa Bay to take on the defending Eastern Conference champions.

Postgame Perspective: Right effort, wrong result in Flyers debut

It goes down as an overtime loss for the Flyers, who fell victim to the NHL's newest form of overtime: 3-on-3. But against the defending Eastern Conference champions, the Flyers earned a small moral victory. The Flyers 3-2 overtime loss starts them with a point in the standings and a step in the right direction effort-wise. So in his first test, Dave Hakstol passed. The team that...

Garrison nets 2, Flyers fall in overtime

Twice, the Flyers were given the golden opportunity for a goal. A penalty shot. It happened to Claude Giroux in the first. It happened to Scott Laughton in overtime. Both times, the Flyers failed to capitalize.  In the overtime, it proved costly as moments after, Jason Garrison scored on a breakaway for his second goal of the game, giving the Tampa Bay Lightning a 3-2 overtime...

Laughton, Manning earn spots on Flyers opening roster

With the news that Andrew MacDonald would be placed on waivers, the Flyers final roster was solidified. That right there locked 21-year-old Scott Laughton and 25-year-old Brandon Manning onto the opening night roster. But it was really more than that. In practices on both Saturday and Monday, Laughton and Manning were not extras. They are here to play. The Flyers had forwards...

Flyers stumble late, fall to Rangers on penalty shot

  It might be the preseason, but Steve Mason was in midseason form on Monday night. The Flyers goalie was the primary reason they were competitive in the game. Mason nearly carried the Flyers to a win, but a late goal to tie the game by the Rangers forced overtime. In overtime, a giveaway by Scott Laughton sent Keith Yandle the other way on a breakaway. Laughton attempted...

Philadelphia Flyers are holding steady

Entering the second week of the NHL preseason, the Philadelphia Flyers roster seems to be decided for the 2015-2016. A This has drawn some criticism and praise from fans.

Chris Porter Making His Case

Like many of you, I have been watching Dave Hakstol's NHL coaching debut in Philly with great interest. Another story that has began to emerge is the impression that former Fighting Sioux forward Chris Porter has made in the City of brotherly love. There's a chance that Porter could end up as the extra forward when Philly breaks camp. “We’ll see what happens [Friday] and if...

Training Camp Report: The intensity continues

Flyers coach Dave Hakstol put his team through the ringer on Friday during the club's opening day of training camp.

What to expect from the fourth line in 2015-16

  View image | Over the years, the NHL has been a league predicated on constant evolution. What once was a game based on size and physicality has evolved into a game where speed and skill are nothing but crucial. The fourth line is no exception. Teams have been phasing out the heavyweight goons and less-skilled players on the fourth line in favor of skilled...

Where does Chris Porter fit with the Flyers?

  View image | The Flyers made a bit of an unexpected move this weekend, as they signed Chris Porter to a one-year, two-way deal. It's easy to dismiss the move as a head-scratching signing. The Flyers are already stretched against the salary cap (with less than $600,000 to play with), and have 13 forwards committed to the club for next year (14 if you include...

General Manager Ron Hextall has begun shaping the team in his own vision, with key moves like hiring his own choice head coach Dave Hakstol.
