Flyers Need Inspiration From Original Easter

Going into Sunday's game against the Rangers, the game plan should be simple: Do nothing like they did in the last game. The Flyers started out slow, and then things started to drag, even after scoring the first goal. Having not gotten a shot in the first 7 minutes, this should have been a rallying point. Instead, they went right back to uninspired play. And it wasn't...

Rangers draw first blood in series with Flyers

The NHL playoffs are a series of games not just one game or one moment in one game.  That one moment that happened last night when Jason Akeson took a 3rd period high sticking double minor should not eliminate the Flyers from the playoffs. The Flyers lost Game 1 of their 1st round playoff series with the New York Rangers 4-1 last night.  The memory that most people will take form...

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post, Question: Do you know the difference between Bobby Orr and Ryan McDonagh? Answer: The Bruins would never have traded the rights to Orr to the Rangers in exchange for Scott Gomez. Well, that difference among many.

Surprise! The loss of Mason hurts the Flyers, Emery stinks

So this should come as a surprise to absolutely nobody, but I figured it was worth visually representing; the Rangers chances in game 1 greatly improve with Ray Emery in goal. Steve Mason, who was injured over the weekend, will not start game 1 of the series versus the Flyers. His availability for game 2 and the rest of the series is unclear. Other than beating the crap out of Braden...

Why the Philadelphia Flyers made the playoffs

Claude Giroux kept his promise. The Philadelphia Flyers rebounded from a disastrous start to make the Stanley Cup Playoffs, finishing third in the Metropolitan Division. Things certainly looked bleak in October and November for Philadelphia, who were 4-10-1 through their first 15 games. Captain Claude Giroux was also held goalless during that stretch. The Flyers were able to battle...
