Maple Leafs Nazem Kadri Brutally Dives When Wayne Simmonds Tosses Broken Stick

Philadelphia Flyers forward Wayne Simmonds was frustrated that he broke his stick and he spiked it on the ground. Part of the broken shaft bounced up and over Maple Leafs forward Nazem Kadri’s head, but he took a brutal dive trying to draw a penalty. Pretty sad since the stick wasn’t close to his face.

Philadelphia Flyers: Reviewing loss to Carolina Hurricanes

In the midst of a playoff push, the Philadelphia Flyers left Carolina without points. Claude Giroux and the Flyers were not on top of their game and were bullied by the Canes. Carolina ended the game up four goals to one. From start to finish, the Flyers seemed sloppy and idle. Only a few real shots were created by Philadelphia in the first period. Their only goal of the game came...

Post-game Perspective: Playing down costs Flyers yet again

Within the past three games, the Flyers have gone from two of their most spirited wins of the season, to a remarkably flat effort against the last-place team in their division (see recap). Unsurprisingly, the Hurricanes have next to no shot at the Stanley Cup playoffs this spring, and they were essentially ruled out once the puck dropped for the 2014-15 campaign in October. Yet...
