In December, the Flyers showed character with a win over the Jets by rallying for two goals in the third and scoring the game-winning goal 10 seconds into overtime. This time, the Flyers controlled the...

Flyers down Jets, claim 3rd straight win

Postgame Perspective: Mason steps up in Flyers win

For so much of the 2014-15 season, Steve Mason has been the key to success for the Flyers. The goalie that practically carried the team through the early portion of the season had been sidelined for six games prior to Tuesday night. Mason wasn't the starter on Tuesday night, but he might as well get credit for one. Mason played 59:02 in goal, taking over for Ray Emery after 5...

Mason stands tall in relief, Simmonds nets winner in shootout

Steve Mason's status was anything but certain heading into Tuesday's game. The Flyers goalie had been recovering from injury, and it appeared Thursday would be his chance to return. Sometimes, plans change. 5:40 into the game, Craig Berube had seen enough of Ray Emery. The Coyotes opened a 2-0 lead in the first 5:40 of the game, when Berube turned to Mason. The Flyers scored...

Voracek, like linemate Giroux, growing into superstar

The Flyers pick of Claude Giroux with the 22nd overall pick in the 2006 NHL Draft was comical - then GM Bobby Clarke couldn't remember his name. Now it's synonymous with Flyers hockey. From a very early point in the now 27-year-old center's career, you could tell this was a special player and captain material. It started simple enough. Giroux barely played in his first two seasons...
