Does The Success Of Flyers West Make Holmgren’s Moves Look Bad?

Sure Mike Richards and Jeff Carter may get the last laugh this year, but they are no more than rooks in Jonathon Quick’s game of chess. Not unlike the New York Rangers, the Los Angeles Kings success can be heavily weighted upon the shoulders of the soon-to-be starting goalie for team USA next Olympics. After […]

Flyers Have Helped The Penguins Ruin Their Reputation

Last February, after a brawl-filled game on Long Island that saw his Penguins and the New York Islanders rack up 346 penalty minutes, Pens legend and owner Mario Lemieux released a statement in which he said the contest “was a travesty” and that “it was painful to watch the game I love turn into a […]

The Keys To The Flyers Success Vs. The Penguins In Series

Shots have been fired. Lines have been crossed. Messages have been sent. Mud has been slung. The pot has been stirred. And all this was during the last few weeks of the regular season.
Oh baby, get ready, Pennsylvania.
The commonwealth is about to be set on fire by an apocalyptic hockey battle as the Flyers will […]

The Flyers Defense Must Tighten Up Before The Playoffs

The Philadelphia Flyers have not been good defensively this season.  It hasn’t helped that Captain Chris Pronger was lost for the season due to post concussion syndrome.
The Orange and Black have given up 182 goals this season, which is the sixth most given up in the National Hockey League.  They also give up 2.98 goals […]

Penalty Missed, As Flyers Get Shutout In San Jose, 1-0

The Flyers’ offense laid a dud late Tuesday night and, for the second time on their four game western swing, the team was shut out, this time 1-0 by a reeling Sharks team at the Shark Tank in San Jose.
While the offensive effort was certainly discouraging, the new look defensive corps was solid and beleaguered […]

Too Many Penalties And A Weak Penalty Kill Unit Are Hurting The Flyers

The Philadelphia Flyers’ power play has been clicking all season, now if only they could get their penalty kill on a roll.  The Orange and Black are currently ranked 22nd in the National Hockey League, killing off only 80.6 percent of their penalties taken.
It doesn’t help the cause when the Flyers are the most penalized […]

Simmonds And Hartnell Are Keys To Flyers Power Play

The Philadelphia Flyers have taken advantage of their power play opportunities this year.  Wayne Simmonds and Scott Hartnell are big reasons why their power play is operating at a 19.8 percent clip, which is best for sixth in the National Hockey League.
The Orange and Black have a league-leading 268 power play opportunities and have cashed […]

NHL’s Atlantic Divison: The Toughest Division in Sports

Tonight I was watching the Rangers/Devils game on NBC sports network. The game was called by the great Doc Emerick which makes the telecast even better than usual for an NHL game. Emerick in my opinion is one of the greatest if not the greatest announcer of all time for any sport. The excitement and […]

Are The Flyers The New Eagles?

As we quickly approach what will be the 40 year anniversary on the last Flyers Stanley Cup Championship, I started thinking why are people giving the Flyers a pass on the complete failure the organization  has become known for. We sit and destroy Eagles upper management when arguably they have at the very least been equal to […]

Marian Gaborik’s Goal Could Permanently Wound The Flyers

If there is anything that Flyer fans have learned about Ilya Bryzgalov throughout the course of his rollercoaster first season in Orange and Black it’s that his game is all about confidence. When he is confident, he is a top-flight netminder that is incredibly tough to beat. When he isn’t confident, it isn’t pretty.
Well, the […]
