For Berube, the message was the same following Wednesday's 5-2 loss to the Detroit Red Wings as it was on Monday: the Flyers are...

Durso: Berube needs to give Flyers line change

It's time for a line change for the Flyers.  Game after game, it was one line truly powering the Flyers offense. When they were snuffed out by the New York Islanders on Monday, Craig Berube finally noticed what was obvious for several games. The Flyers have a lot of players who can score. But they are not a deep team offensively. The top line continues to succeed. The rest...

Tuesday Tactical Tidings: Giroux and Voracek Lead Flyers Potent Power Play

After looking at the penalty kill last week, I wanted to flip that and look at the positive aspect of the Philadelphia Flyers’ special teams: the power play. The Flyers power play has been great as of late, not only this season but in past seasons as well.
