Philadelphia tops Winnipeg 5-2 for 3rd straight victory

PHILADELPHIA (AP) Nick Schultz makes a living trying to keep pucks out of the net, instead of shooting them. When Schultz does have a rare shot to score, the defenseman enjoys the chance to cash in. ''It must be nice to be a goal scorer,'' he said. ''They get paid a lot more, too.'' Schultz chipped in with a rare goal, and Wayne Simmonds, Chris VandeVelde, Brayden Schenn also scored...

Flyers lack of consistency keeps them hovering in Draft picture

Fresh off a trip to the All-Star Game in Columbus, Jake Voracek said the Flyers needed to win 25 of the remaining 34 games this season to feel like they had a chance at the playoffs. The Flyers opened that stretch on Tuesday night against Arizona with a 4-3 shootout 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...

Zac Rinaldo suspended 8 games; nobody cares

Feels like this happened like three weeks ago, but it hasn’t even been a week. The NHL brought the hammer down on Monday, giving Rinaldo an 8-game suspension. Some think it’s right on the money, some think it’s not enough. No one has said it’s too many games, and if they do, it’s probably because they eat paper. As far as we’re concerned, it’s an okay length. The...
